    Look of the Day: Maxi-mising your Sunday Best

    l-34Our Stylist has picked this look for those days when nothing else will do but your Sunday best. Whether it’s for a posh afternoon tea or a wedding, we think this look, accentuating the beautifully-coloured, flattering maxi skirt from Kutowa, is elegant and confident. This versatile skirt looks just as fabulous with a black chiffon top for the evening as it does here with a demure cream number.
