Look for…

  • Fitted tops tailored to your shape at the waist.
  • Prints, colour pops and detailing across the chest and shoulders.
  • Plain or patterned fabrics that drape well over your body shape.
  • Polo-shirts with emphasis on shoulders.
  • Horizontal striped shirts in colours, preferably in upper torso area.
  • Pleated or flat-fronted trousers.
  • Tailored suits, preferably British-cut.
