Celebrity style-spotting

Get your fix of style inspiration from our round-up of the week’s most covetable celebrity looks and must-have pieces

Wow in white

Bella knows a thing or two about fashion – and supermodel sass. To channel her white-hot vibe, take one mini dress, add sporty all-white accessories and top ’em off with classic shades. It’s a feel-good summer look that will make the most of your fake tan glow and take you from city to beach in a heartbeat.

Cut some shapes

Crop-tops (more substantial than a bra, skimpier than a top) are a fashion thing, and we’ve been watching a myriad of slender starlets nonchalantly sport theirs as daywear. If bearing your midriff feels frightening or unnecessary, put your doubts on hold right there, and say hello to this splendid not-so-scary swim creation. Sporty crop-tops on the beach? We can do that!

Find the one

The jumpsuit provides a complete outfit-in-one in a swift and stylish swoop. Whether you’re running errands (add trainers or pretty gladiator sandals) or meeting the girls for cocktails (team with summer wedges and a big, bouncy blow-dry), - it’s the totally wearable summer staple that’ll ensure you’ll always look pulled together.


Hit your stride

When temperatures rise, the summer trouser is a chic alternative to jeans. Just swot up on the new trews rules:

  • Find the right cut for your figure – order a few styles and have a good try-on session at home.
  • High-waisted trousers smooth out your tummy and accentuate your curves in all the right ways.
  • Team cool wide-leg trousers with a wedge shoe for a universally flattering look, and keep your proportions balanced by topping them with something slinky like Emily Ratajkowski’s crop-top.
  • Slim-leg styles work great when they’re cut cropped above the ankle to draw attention to the slimmest part of your legs.

Go some lengths


Floaty and effortless, maxi lengths come into their own for summer. Style with your favourite sandals, or – if the British summer decides to be all British – with ankle boots and a leather biker jacket. Flaunt it on your next BBQ, on holiday, or choose a more luxe version and say hello to fresh wedding-guest attire.
