JEAN GENIE

Your favourite jeans are the best base for any outfit, it's all about what you pair them with. Take a leaf from style blogger and business woman Helena Bordon's book and accessorise with an embellished jacket, some classic sunglasses and a smile.

DOTTY

Polkadots are still reigning supreme as the print of the moment. A polkadot dress is a fool-proof way to look chic and current — according to this year's Haute Couture attendees, the colourways to be seen in are classic black and white, and bright look-at-me yellow.

HANDS FREE

The season's favourite belt-bags combine with cross-body bags for ultimate hands-free cruising. Make a statement like model Adwoa Aboah and her fluro Prada piece, or streamline with a complementary colourway for a sophisticated look.

PAINTBOX BRIGHTS

Pick a colour and turn the saturation up to 100. Make the focus all about one piece like New Zealand model Lili Sumner, or feel the fear and go full head-to-toe anyway.

SUIT UP

Suits aren't going anywhere. Embrace a seventies-inspired vibe with wide, relaxed trousers and plenty of accessories.

DAYS GONE BY

A throw-on favourite has been given a retro spin; vintage-inspired dresses were everywhere at Haute Couture week. Tank magazine's Caroline Issa looks easy breezy in her lilac dress and rainbow sandals — keep an eye out for flouncy necklines and sweet lace collars for a gently nostalgic feel.
