Wallis, like Principles, is a UK High Street store that has long been considered to be a bit on the 'mumsy' side. However, offerings over the past few seasons - especially with regard to the use of bold colour - have started capturing the imaginations of the girls here at Catwalk Queen.  That's all well and good - but can they also offer a complete outfit for under £100? As the Wallis online store doesn't yet sell footwear, which usually takes up roughly a third of the budget, I decided that this complete outfit (sans shoes) would require outerwear!

To see how they fared, keep reading after the cut...

An oufit perfect for the curvy girls among us, start with the gorgeous black and red floral wrap dress, £25 down from £40. Take advantage of that daring neckline with this crystal drop necklace and earrings, a bargain set at £15; and get that festive feeling with this pretty black glitter clutch for £18. Wrap it all up in this fantastic, attention-grabbing red trench, currently on offer for £40 (usually £60). All of this for £98!
