Fashion moves fast; so fast, in fact, that when the ready-to-wear shows kick off in New York next month we’ll already be thinking about our wardrobes for winter 2010 despite still feeling the chills from this season! Verity’s ensemble illustrates that, instead of jumping head first into Spring’s barely there whisps of fabric, a transitional look that bridges the seasons can make a real style statement (as well as prevent pneumonia!).

Verity’s dress picks up on the coming trends for eye-popping prints and fairytale florals whilst giving a nod to winter power dressing with fierce leather accessories, all along showing an awareness of what suits her shape with the body-con cut and structured shoulders. This look is no slave to fashion but conquers it by teaming the best of the trends with an innate sense of what suits the wearer. There is a fine line between fashion forwardness and simply being a clothes horse; make sure your style says something about you, not just where you shop.
