Hellosie. Thank you so much for giving me the time. I know you’re busy, your make up looks amazing, and that dress…that pink bin liner you’re wearing for a dress. I’ve got something to say about that and I need you to shut up for one second and listen.

What you need are rules. This sounds horribly bossy I know, but do you want to spend your downtime in a panic, grabbing random dresses out of your wardrobe, discarding them and then having to hang them back up again? I thought not. What you need is a calm, fail-safe formula, and here it is.

Wear only black, but within that framework pull out the pieces you have that are the most embellished and extravagant-looking. This is the time for anything black that has a feather trim, or a crystal neckline, or a band of velvet around the hem.

It could be a lace blouse and a black leather skirt; a fitted fluffball black sweater with a black pencil skirt; a black mini dress with black tights and heels. You probably won’t have loads of options, but that’s the point: what you have will work together, give or take a higher heel or a pair of earrings, and who wants yet another decision to make?

Maisie’s option: you can just wear a little black dress, but add something white. High-heeled white ankle boots, or a white fur shrug. A stonking great diamond or pearl necklace will also do nicely, should you happen to have one to hand: for reference ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. A touch of white lifts the classicism of a black dress and makes it something that will look good on any bedroom floor the following morning.
