You’ve got the Saint Lau­rent boots, you’re at Shored­itch’s The Cur­tain. Now chan­nel Cé­line Dion

ELLE (UK) - - Contents -

THIS MONTH’S MUST-HAVE is a pair of Saint Lau­rent crys­tal-stud­ded boots, glit­tery won­ders that will last the whole night and aren’t a I-can’t-stop-cry­ing heel height. They’re the kind of boots that will change your life. Namely be­cause you’ll have to sac­ri­fice your kom­bucha ad­dic­tion, your desk snacks of ac­ti­vated char­coal nuts and prob­a­bly your rent to have them. If your Whole Foods habit is too dif­fi­cult to let go of, take the Uber Pool route and try a boot-share.

WHEN IT COMES TO BEAUTY, you can now get your be­hind as lit as your boots with sum­mer’s most un­ex­pected new hit: Sol de Janeiro Brazil­ian Bum Bum Cream (from £18 at cult­beauty.co.uk and lib­erty­lon­don.com). Yes, it’s ex­actly what it sounds like. Pro­nounced ‘boom boom’, it con­tains guarana – a na­tive Ama­zo­nian plant that is one of the world’s most po­tent caf­feine sources – and it stim­u­lates cir­cu­la­tion while smooth­ing the skin.

NOW YOU’VE GOT YOUR BOOTS and boom boom in or­der, hit the dance­floor at The Cur­tain in Shored­itch. Play up your look with a burn­ing-bright-red some­thing: lips, jacket, trousers, gi­ant ear­rings, or any sin­gu­lar state­ment item. Or­der a Cy­nar spritz (a more so­phis­ti­cated Aperol), but get there early be­fore the strag­glers from The Ned fill the place…

IN THE SPIRIT OF ALL THE ABOVE, let your motto for the month be this: be more Cé­line. Dion, that is. Give stand­ing ova­tions freely and with­out hes­i­ta­tion, wear blouses with gi­ant, vo­lu­mi­nous shoul­ders as much as you pos­si­bly can (stand out in some­thing from Jac­que­mus or Teija), even if you’re just head­ing out for the emer­gency Sains­bury’s Lo­cal dash at 10:52pm. Make wildly in­ap­pro­pri­ate con­ver­sa­tion with other peo­ple in public places (see any Cé­line con­cert for ref­er­ence), and sing, sing, sing your heart out with gay aban­don. Raise your voice loud and un­apolo­get­i­cally, be­cause a new sea­son is here. And it’s go­ing to be a good one.
