A Night Out In Sorrento

I’m talking plump lemons hanging from orchard trees by the Italian Riviera (a little more juicy than that Gemma and Davide date). Inspired by the delicate Dolce and Gabbana iconography of Kravis’ wedding in Portofino, these warm yellow, orange and purple colours will channel that tequila sunrise on the beach type style. Pull out the lemony colours from this Studio Lindos dress with these handmade, citrusy earrings from Etsy. Pair that with some trendy but walkable chunky shoes. Finally, accessorize with a mini bag that may only fit in your purse and a lip liner, but hey, here’s to fashion. Wear this down the aisles of Sainsbury’s and the shoppers will never know you haven’t just hopped off a jet straight from the shores of Southern Italy.

Flower Power

There’s no frills with this one…well, maybe a ruffled hem. Since Prada’s runway in February donned the infamous jelly shoes, 8-year-old us have been desperate to dust off our old Crocs and jellies and style them this summer. These lilac jelly mules from ASOS style bring out the winding blues and pinks of this floral Zara draped dress. Chunky jewellery is mega Instagrammable ATM, so pop on these chunky bracelets and bangles and you’ll be bringing European glamour to the table tonight at dinner.

(Straw)Berry Cute!

Didn’t I mention strawberry threads were in this season? I meant quite literally. A dose of fruity reds is perfect to style with a muted linen jumpsuit like this one from ASOS. On holiday, you’ll be able to walk for miles in these chunky Lazy Oaf slides with pinky, blush detailing. Accessorise with these Tony Stark-like glasses that all the cool girls are going for this summer, and finalise with this plump, blood red, strawberry handbag. Never mind pink to make the boys wink, I’m fawning over this outfit already!

Going Down To Funky Town

Daphne Blake from Scooby Doo or retro go-go dancer chic, this party-style outfit really brings colour together in one groovy ensemble. If you’re going dancing, this small heel from EGO Shoes matches the colours of this daisy-print jumpsuit to a T. Try out some complementing green accessories to go with, and slip into that Austin-Powers type disco style. It’s groovy, baby!
