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!

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!
