If fur is not your thing, swap it for a mannish velvet, cord or tweed jacket, or a shrug. Don't go there: Leather coats or jackets or anything with a strict cut will ruin the princess feel. Don't overdo it with big jewellery: you might be mistaken for the Christmas tree.

An understated business-like bag and shoes perfect the executive look. Don't go there: Boxy jackets that maximise hips. Black, mannish jackets that look too stark against fluid pale satin. A dainty retro handbag and Mary Janes are too literal, especially for work.
