Brrrr.....there's a definite nip in the air.......time to kit yourself out with some sweaters methinks.

If you have a wedding (or two) to attend this summer, then one of the key considerations is what to wear. Here are my tips on how to make a suit less business, more pleasure so it's suitable for a wedding. And if you already have a suit then check out the accessories section for ideas on how you can give it a fresh new look.
The clocks have gone forward and the days have got longer and warmer, though things are still changeable. Wool is starting to look wintery, so freshen up your wardrobe with a lightweight jacket. There are plenty of different styles to choose from and here I've picked a selection that I'll be bookmarking for future shopping trips with clients.
