Do you have a wardrobe stuffed full of clothes, but still find you've got nothing to wear? Celebrity stylist Fifi Milne shares her top tips for updating your summer wardrobe without blowing your budget.
Style is all about feeling comfortable:
Know the style that suits you; pick and choose the trends that will work for you, your age and body shape. Don't be afraid of sticking to your own style. With the 1980s silhouette making a big comeback this season, it has never been easier to look glamorous and feel comfortable. Baggy pants, unstructured t-shirts and loose blazers all work for a relaxed and on-trend style.
Have a party on your feet:
Have fun with your footwear this summer! Bring to life your shoe collection with bold colours, distinctive textures and strong shapes.
White hot summer:
Wearing white next to the face takes away ten years. Invest in a classic white shirt or team brightly coloured t-shirts with white tanks tops for a youthful summer look.
Must-have additions to your summer wardrobe:
- A brightly-coloured pair of skinny jeans
- A simple white 1960s-style shift dress
- A blush pink silky blazer
Daring fashionistas might want to experiment with the latest colour blocking trend by wearing loud, clashing colour combinations. For a more realistic colourful look, choose one bold shade and pair it with neutrals, caramels and whites.
It can be really expensive trying to keep up with all the latest trends. When building your wardrobe, try and stick to three classic colours, such as black, navy and brown, then use statement jewellery and bold shoes to quickly update any outfit. Gwyneth Paltrow knows how to work the basic look, she's rarely seen wearing any prints, and always look fabulous!
Dress from the table upwards. Printed trousers can often be unflattering, so when it comes to your choice of bottoms, basic is best. Have fun and brighten up your outfits with jewellery and colourful tops.
Give your outfit a glamorous and 1950s-style twist with a pair of this season's must-have cat eye sunglasses.
