The solution... accessorise

Once you've got your basic look - a simple yet classic combination of jeans and a plain top - it's time to add the drama.

Costume jewelry is perfect to give your smart/casual look a lift.

Go for statement brooches, neck-pieces and rings. Sticking to a monochrome palette of dark sparkle to compliment your top is a good look but feel free to add splashes of color too.

Anything goes as long as it's big, bold and glamorous. Be careful though - you can over do it. Two key pieces is the maximum: necklace and ring, brooch and earrings... You get the idea. When it comes to costume jewelry, less is more.

My suggestions:

MIMCO swan brooch - £34.95- House of Frazer

Fabric Swirl Statement Necklace - £16 - Oasis
