I have a thing about searching for the perfect bralette. Being curvy myself and not suited to some of these flat-chested trends (I look terrible in 1920s dresses, for example), the humble bra-style top is definitely on my style radar. It's feminine and flattering, but without putting everything on show. As you can see, Motel have come up trumps with this Lolita bralette (£22), which is available in a range of colours and has this fantastically sexy multiple strap detail on the back.
Here's the Lolita top in mustard. With a plain front, it's easy to pair with a number of different options, from high waisted skirts to floral harems. The black heels they've used are a great example of how to add glamour to this look and keep things vintage-inspired; think 40s and 50s prints and maybe put your hair in a victory roll.
For a more modern option, the Winnie playsuit with a gorgeous yellow floral kick (called Black Placement Rose) is a great investment at £42. It's wearable and the shape is kind to those of us who aren't blessed with womanly hips - the nipped in waist does the hard work for you. I'm going to put it on my Christmas list and hope that Santa is feeling particularly stylish this year.
