For those of us not on the front line, leisure wear has probably become the outfit of choice and those spring trends are long since forgotten about.
At Box Edit Boutique we have a real passion for styling and believe that getting longevity out of your wardrobe at any point in the season is important. We can’t resist a flirt with trends so in order to show you that certain items can be taken from lockdown and beyond, we have teamed up with Ballet Basics founder and fashion fan Marla Ellis.
Marla has pivoted her business since lockdown, creating online adult and child ballet classes where she spends her time
When she’s not streaming her classes Marla is a busy mum and an avid fashion fan, who has mastered the art of relaxed and chic style.
Here we take you through our style edit by having a snoop in Marla’s wardrobe and picking a few choice pieces. These will be a wardrobe investment and stop the temptation to bulk buy loungewear!
