Breezy, di­aphanous clothes ar­riv­ing in-store sig­nals warm weather on the hori­zon. Although it’s a stretch to imag­ine wear­ing some­thing the wind can blow through just now, sheers are es­pe­cially good for evening or for­mal wear, and that’s the kind of dress­ing where it pays to plan ahead. A sheer lace top, in par­tic­u­lar, is a great way to up­date an ex­ist­ing evening skirt or pants.

This Juli­ette Ho­gan lace T-shirt is more see-through than it looks here – we’re see­ing both lay­ers of the lace front and back. It’s very gauzy, so a slip is in or­der – a pale or skin tone one would show up the pat­tern, but I’ve gone dark to work tonally with the top. I’ve added a nude tone bra as the straps will show less, but with the per­fect slip for your bra, the straps can sit flush.

1. Ben­don Body seam-free con­tour bra, $45 2. Juli­ette Ho­gan Olive T-shirt in Odelia lace, $299 3. Sta­ple + Cloth Moon cami, $159 4. Blak Ebony skirt, $159, from 5. Mer­chant 1948 Swift heels, $210, avail­able mid-septem­ber


For break­outs, youu want a creamy, solid con­cealer cealer that comes in a pot or stick, rather than a liq­uid one that comes in a tube. Glowy, light-re­flect­ing con­ceal­ers are great for un­der the eyes, but here, we’re just look­ing for good cov­er­age and tex­ture. Try Ben­e­fit Air­brush con­cealer ($38) or MAC Stu­dio Fin­ish con­cealer ($40). Part of one of the most de­light­ful beauty col­labs of the year, be­tween top Parisian de­signer and beloved Parisian beauty brand, my favourite piece from the col­lec­tion is the mul­ti­pur­pose pal­ette. En­cased in the sweet­est em­broi­dered pack­ag­ing, which gives a nod to Le-tan’s sig­na­ture sought-af­ter clutches, it in­cludes colours for cheeks, eyes and lips, plus a mir­ror and petite brushes for ap­pli­ca­tion.
