Norfolk’s best boutiques, loveliest labels and beauty secrets, with Rachel Buller
Fabulous fit The focus of the Style Show in Norwich is always on shape rather than size – and with that in mind it has sourced and developed its very own “Rescue Range” of clothing. It guarantees to flatter the body and the various issues commonly experienced by women. All the jeans, trousers and leggings are designed with tummy control and rear lift. They are higher waisted for further control and made of figure firming fabric, ensuring comfort as well as a flattering fit. Prices start at £40. The Style Studio offers customers a full styling experience, including colour analysis and body shape, helping you understand what really suits you and to create a capsule wardrobe. The Style Show, 115 City Road, Norwich, NR1 2HL; 07487 796853. Book for one to one styling shopping with a style consultant or drop in. Open Fridays between 10am and 5pm to shop.
Freshen up Spring should be all about freshening up your wardrobe, so La Naturelle – a brand created in the South of France – will bring some welcome warmth to your look. Now available at Bakers and Larners in Holt, the latest collection includes these dresses perfect for any occasion. La Naturelle focuses on making clothing as friendly to the environment as possible, using 100pc linen fibres and fabrics made with the minimal use of chemicals.

Love layers Seasalt’s organic cotton reversible tops and tunics are always popular at this time of year – and the spring collection features a fantastic range of eclectic and bold colours inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. They look great layered with textured fabrics and are perfect for spring days. The Good Earth Company in Norwich has a large collection from Seasalt which can be mixed and matched with great effect. Another label which looks great layered up and worn in different combinations is Adini, which focuses on natural fabrics in eye-catching prints. The latest range features colonial khaki and dessert peach, and tropical shades of parrot green and sunset red. At Good Earth Company there is a great range of dresses, tunics, tops, jackets and coats. Pottergate, Norwich, NR2 1DS; 01603 624009
Super styling Following its glamorous transformation last year, the fashion floor at Jarrold’s store is full of inspiration for the season ahead. We love the latest collection from Weekend Max Mara such as these patterned trousers, (£145), jacket (£475), top (£145) and necklace (£85) - all finished off with this fab Orla Keily Bag (£399).
