Tonal dressing tips to create a flawless winter white look online editor london diana bell heather

Simple and effective

As I get older I find myself pulling away from prints in favour of tonal dressing. Wearing multiple shades of the same colour looks polished and timeless while giving off a sense of sartorial confidence – not many would dare wear bright pink and orange head to toe.
