The boxy blazer crafted from luxe satin is an easy way to elevate your night out.
Sling over your shoulders for model style or wear with pants to emphasize your curves and all heads will turn.
Available in five brilliant bright hues, there’s a stand out green or pink option if you’re worried about keeping a white one clean.
There are matching pants if you want to work the androgynous appeal or pair with a dress and use your feminine charms.
Helena also said: ‘I love the Forever Dress, it fits really well and accentuates your shape, the female body is beautiful – it’s also very timeless, so maybe that’s why it’s called the Forever Dress!’
With smart tailoring and a sexy shape, this dress oozes class, sophistication and a sense that you’re worth a pay rise.
Available in eight different colors from dark black to bold blue and bright pink, the fit is so good you may want it in more than one shade.
A timeless addition to any desk-to-dinner closet, all the extra details have been considered with a high notched collar, v-neck front and puffed shoulders to take power dressing to a whole new level.
The belted waist adds the final slimming effect and extra sass.
And she added: ‘The corset dress is a fun little number that looks great with either flat sandals or high heels, you can also put the oversized blazer over it. And red lips – always red lips for something like that.’
This dress is an investment piece at $686, but it will be something that makes you feel untouchable each time you wear it.
In a strapless style, it has a nod to retro-inspired corsetry with a lace up detail on the waist.
For the price, you can get a lot of use out of it as it can be layered underneath with a fitted top, or worn alone to elevate its sweetheart neckline.
It’s an instant statement that has ’90s nostalgia at its core and you’ll feel like you stepped off an MTV music video.
The lace-up detail is super flattering as it pulls you in so you look longer and leaner.
