  • Go into mourning

    Wear some form of Edwardian period costume. Perhaps a chimney sweep? Or a lady in mourning. Try a lace cape, a waistcoat, or weathered, knobbly boots – maybe even carry a jaunty broomstick.

  • Have some experimental socks

    Wear your trousers slightly too short in order to expose a good inch of statement sock – these can be an unusual colour, overly long, an exuberant print, or just a bid odd. But never black.

  • Load up on daft jewellery

    With rings and watches, way too much is never enough. Layer your wrists and fingers with accoutrements of at last half your own body weight.

  • Shoes: the bigger the better

    The chunkiness of the shoe or boot should be inversely proportional to the thickness of the leg. Thus, very skinny females should wear footwear the size of traction engines.

    Shoes: the bigger the better
  • Button up

    Wear a gently creased shirt, buttoned right to the larynx. Leg-of-mutton sleeves optional.

    Button up
  • Accessorise all areas

    Always have one item that is silly. An animal–shaped bag, for instance, or a necklace of beads the size of tennis balls. Or indeed a necklace made of tennis balls.

    Accessorise all areas
  • Shoe it like a dude

    If you’re a girl, wear very masculine shoes, such as brogues. Or hobnail boots. If you’re a man, wear spats.

  • Give good head

    Wear a piece of statement millinery: a deerstalker or something like the Sorting Hat from Harry Potter is ideal.

    Give good head
  • Go a bit off colour

    Wear colours somewhere near other shades that could be more easily identified. So, not yellow, but ‘chartreuse’, not purple, but ‘bruise’.

    Go a bit off colour
  • Be a bag lady

    Carry a miscellaneous item that is not a bag, but serves the purpose of a bag. A bicycle basket, antique lunchbox or a violin case work well.

Go into mourning

Wear some form of Edwardian period costume. Perhaps a chimney sweep? Or a lady in mourning. Try a lace cape, a waistcoat, or weathered, knobbly boots – maybe even carry a jaunty broomstick.
