HOW TO AVOID SUMMER STYLING PITFALLS
Rules to follow to avoid looking a bit dodgy this summer? Avoid TMT: too much tan. These days, anything beyond a tinted moisturiser constitutes TMT. And if you are false tanning, for God’s sake make sure your top half matches your bottom half — we will notice. The skater skirt is to be avoided at all costs. It’s delusional to think it works on anyone outside the professional ice-skating world or over the age of six. Cutaway or sheer panels in a garment are a no-no — we do not want to see your side boob, side ass, stomach, or side stomach, unless you can carry it off like Laura Whitmore, right. And if you insist on doing this look, for God’s sake, get the underwear right. Too-tight coloured jeans are the new jegging: a bad thing, in case you were unsure. And make sure to get your summer jacket/coat right — don’t get all dressed up, forget to work out the final layer and just throw some shabby old thing over it. Delusions of Nicole Richie-ness are just wrong — yes, summer allows for a certain relaxation of formality, but the hippy look can go too far. Leave out the headbands. And don’t think you can just put a leather jacket on top of everything. We’re over it.
