Kim Murray's dresses at Wimbledon

Kim Murray looked great the whole of Wimbledon.

Kim's COLOUR  -  dark hair/blue eyes and good skin tones.  She can wear a good selection of colours but nothing too bright or all black or white.

STYLE  -  Classic wears minimal jewellery.  Looks good in clean lines and classic shapes.  Kim wears on trend outfits with subtle colours , using the seasons fashion in fabrics and detail to suit her.

SHAPE  -  Slightly curvery  -  perfect figures for dresses and she has regained her shape brilliantly after her baby.

Whistles dress

This outfit is very on trend for this season with the lacey top.  Notice it is cream rather than stark white.  The waist of the skirt emphasizes her waist.

Kate Spade poppy dress
Fun, silky and flouncey material with the seasons ‘pussy bow-  perfect colours for Kim, soft not too hard.  Print size is small to suit her small frame.  The great oversized structured bagis an Aspinal of London bag in lizard.

Jenny Packham embellished tulle gown

A gorgeous evening dress which suits Kim's figure perfectly.  The deep Vneck wrap style emphasizes her bust and the clasp at the waist shows off her slim waist.  The slit skirt is great to show off her legs.  It is a young, sophisticated style.  Strappy sandles to lead the eye down.  Nice and simple no jewellery – let the squins speak for themselves.  Modern long sleeves and embellishment.

Jenny Packham dress

Great colour – nice and subtle – not too hard and bright.  Heavy embellishment on the top which is key this season.  Nice slash neck and sleeve length – again perfect for her figure.  This was the dress Kim wore to watch the Wimbledon finals when Andy won.

Burberry Brit chiffon dress

Again black and white is on trend this summer.  This dress has nice sheer fabric on the arms to soften the line.  Small pattern with no hard shapes – perfect for Kim.

Kim shows off her great figure and hair.  Wears clothes that absolutely suit her colour, style and shape.

Above all her outfits fit the occasion which is so important when you are the wife of the British no 1 tennis player

Regus surveyed senior business people from across Brighton to find out what's HOT when it comes to workplace attire.

Results reveal that established ideas are being challenged by the city's professionals.   65% of Brighton managers believe that a suit and tie is too formal for the modern workplace.  61% believe that jeans are now acceptable in the office.

The survey also asked attitudes regarding footwear.  52% of respondents in Brighton believe sandals to be acceptable and 23% thought flip flops suitable.  Tracksuits were deemed the least acceptable office outfit with just 10% claiming to see nothing wrong in taking a sporty look into the office.

Richard Morris UK CEO of Regus said "Everything about the world of work is changing, from where we work to the hours we spend working to what we wear.  This more relaxed attitude to workwear is a reflection of the fact that the office environment is now a lot less formal in many cases - lifestyle and work are integrating".

I totally agree with the survey, Brighton is a City were there are a lot of creative companies and this would give a huge percentage of people responding with a more casual office look.

Gresham Blake's answer to a more casual business look.

This piece was taken from the Argus newspaper June 2016

To do away with the traditional suit and tie for men and suits, dress and jackets for the women it does make it hard for people to know how casual to go.  For some people this is an absolute nightmare when shopping and updating their wardrobe.  Work and lifestyle clothes start to become one.
