Having great style doesn’t necessarily mean you should be decked out head to toe in labels. In fact, women with great style rarely opt for conspicuous logos. Mixing high street and designer is an art and so is knowing when to splurge and when to save. 


Looking amazing doesn’t cost the earth and our Editors are big fans of affordable brands, especially when they roll out a decent designer dupe or two. We asked them for their tips on how to elevate an outfit, the best designer pieces to invest in and how they make their line-ups look that little bit more polished…

Never underestimate the power of accessories

Can’t afford a designer handbag but can justify that silk scarf? Let’s not forget bag charms and clip-on shoulder straps by the likes of Coach, Fendi, Valentino and Prada. Maximalise your tote’s power to shine with a few high-end additions here and there. 

The same goes for your outfit. Tie that silk scarf around your neck, rock a Chanel brooch on your high-street denim jacket and rock expensive jewellery with every look. Jewellery is one of the things worth investing in – you’ll never grow out of it and higher quality pieces will last forever. Plus, most styles are timeless. 

Sunglasses are your best friend when trying to achieve that super-polished look and most frames look pretty high-end whether they’re marked with a logo or not.

Do look for convincing designer dupes

From Mango to Zara and even online exclusive brands like Chi Chi, a ton of affordable labels offer great designer dupes. So, if you can’t splash out on runway-fresh styles, rest assured you’ll be able to find a convincing imitation that suits your budget. 

We love floral maxi dresses for summer days, chunky buckle belts for off duty, guipure lace for all our big events and cool boxy and boho bags; there are so to choose from this season and all at a pretty reasonable price point. 

Buy clothes that fit – tailoring is everything

The most important thing to remember when trying to look chic is that you should be wearing your clothes, they shouldn’t be wearing you. The cut of an outfit makes all the difference so invest in pieces that fit you perfectly and get the ones you really care about tailored. Every woman should have at least one well-fitting jacket, dress and pair of trousers in her line-up.

Sunglasses are essential. Without a doubt, they are an accessory that we use all year round. In fact, a pair of stylish eyeglasses can be the focus of our outfit, leaving aside those that are merely functional to welcome trends such as mini-glasses, with applications, with entertaining forms.

The Cannes Film Festival red carpet has, once again, been serving us a cavalcade of show-stopping looks. With so many events, screenings and parties taking place in such a short space of time, we’re always amazed at just how many incredible outfits we spot. 


Of course, every year offers up a look to remember and we always spot one or two memorable pieces from the runway, but this year, our favourite celebs seemed to be opting for the same few trends. We’ve put together a list of our favourites and included a few tips on how to rock these striking looks at your next big event…

Shimmer and shine

From Winnie Harlow in that incredible Jean Louis Sabaji gown to Kristen Stewart in a metallic Chanel mini, the order of this year’s red carpet is anything that sparkles. We spotted Bella Hadid in a shimmering design from Elle Saab and countless other models, actors and socialites kitted out in gold, silver and sequins. Now, this is a statement trend guaranteed to turn heads, so keep your accessories simple and your make-up pared down – except your lipstick, keep that bright for a cool contrast. 

Power suits

Tailoring always goes down well on the red carpet and at Cannes, the rule has no exceptions. Doutzen Kroes donned an achingly-cool Tom Ford suit, while Julianne Moore opted for trousers too in a softer take on power dressing. Cate Blanchett wowed us in a pastel-pink suit by Stella McCartney and we saw statement styles from Chanel in light blue too. Anything works with a suit, so mix it up with barely-there heels and clutches or statement trainers, sunglasses and a lace camisole

Graphic outlines 

From 3D shapes to contemporary twists on corseting, bold graphic shapes and unusual outlined details have been big at Cannes this year. Jennifer Connelly showcased the trend in Louis Vuitton while Star Wars actress Lupita Nyong'o showed us her take on the trend in Dior Haute Couture. Deconstructed silhouettes and futuristic shapes are here to stay but be sure to stick with monochrome or colour-blocked detailing to avoid looking too far out.

Sunshine yellow 

Yellow is having a moment and it’s been everywhere at Cannes. From pale-yellow suits to bright mustard dresses, the colour is reigning supreme for SS18. Our favourite yellow gowns? Lui Wen in Bottega Veneta and Leomie Anderson in Twinset. We’ll be seeing a lot more of the colour this year so find a shade that says something about your personality and team it with plenty of sparkling accessories.

Wedding season is here, but if you’re not quite ready to give Meghan and Harry a run for their money – and let’s face it, who can afford to cater for 600 people? – you might want to consider a few shortcuts.We caught up with Fern Godfrey, Editor of the UK’s biggest Wedding blog Rock My Wedding, to discover her tips for planning your dream day on a budget… 


What do you love most about being the Editor of Rock My Wedding? Rock My Wedding was founded by Charlotte O’Shea in 2009, when she was planning her own wedding, it’s grown hugely since then and we’re now a team of 10. I’ve been Editor at Rock My Wedding since 2015 and I absolutely love my job. 

We get to share people’s love stories every single day, work with beautiful flowers and dresses, and champion incredible wedding suppliers with our directory, The List. The best bit is seeing the wedding photographs of brides who have read RMW religiously while planning their own weddings –- it’s such a great feeling. 

What do you find are the most popular wedding themes?

We feature a lot of rustic luxe weddings -– industrial and agricultural buildings with lots of exposed brick and lofty beams, filled with flowers and candles. This theme works beautifully for weddings across Europe as we have so many incredible historic and working buildings to use. The weather in the UK doesn’t always allow for the amazing outdoor celebrations we feature from France, Italy and Spain, but all of the weddings we blog are amazing in their own unique way. 

How can one plan a beautiful wedding on a budget? 

If you want to save money while planning your big day, then the key thing is decide on what is important to you as a couple. If you chose the areas you’re going to spend on, then you can try to save on the others. 

Do you really need wedding favours? Can you serve canapés as a starter and wedding cake as your dessert? Have you considered a Spotify play list rather than a band? Do you really need a pair of designer shoes? If flowers aren’t important to you, then use local foliage and seasonal blooms. The one thing we’d always recommend spending on is professional photographs and a film – these things will allow you to remember your big day forever and so they are the most important part. 

Can you share any useful DIY tips?

We’ve created a couple of floral DIY’s for Rock My Wedding readers. The first is a chair back arrangement to take your seating to the next level. The other is for a classic flower crown – these are very popular with boho bridesmaids, especially at cool, rustic weddings out in the countryside, but you can use any kind of flower to achieve the look and feel you want. There are plenty of examples on the Rock My Wedding Instagram feed.

As an expert, what would you pack for a destination wedding?

As a wedding guest? A floral maxi dress, a wide brimmed hat and some sunglasses. As the bride? A soft and flowing gown, some pretty sandals and lots of Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder.

Shop Fern’s edit for the perfect pieces to make your day special, whatever your budget and wherever you’re heading to tie the knot…

We love a three-day weekend and luckily, May offers up two in the UK thanks to our spring bank holidays. If you’re planning on jetting off for a long weekend away or just chilling at home, an extra day off work is the perfect excuse for some next level off-duty dressing.


We looked to our Editors for a curated edit of fun off-duty pieces and they didn’t disappoint. Blush pink, spring florals, designer sunglasses and effortlessly cool denim all made an appearance, with statement accessories reigning supreme.

You’d probably turn quite a few heads in these pieces at work, but for the weekend, these picks are fun, fresh and perfect for enjoying your time off in style.

Shop the edit below, click through the gallery above for outfit inspiration and dress to impress this bank holiday. Our Editors certainly will be…

What a creative and hilarious campaign.  When you look this image, you would think that you immediately will get distracted by the funny makeup, but instead, it acts like a magnet that attracts all the attention to the center of the face aka the gorgeous cat eye sunglasses.  Love this idea! photo credit: @manrepeller on twitter  #fashion #sunglasses #look #trend

I would call this look 50's babe crossed path with a country girl.  Even if the dress, the makeup, and the sunglasses look so classy, the cowboy boots break the outfit in a weird but cool way.  Maybe the girl stole the boots from her annoying roommate, or maybe she just was trying to be really chill.  photo credit: @whowhatwear on twitter  #fashion #outfit #ootd #trend

As much as we hate to admit the early 00's era of Paris Hilton in pink Juicy track suits, double denim x2 Justin and Britney, Christina Aguilera's dirty braided locks, oversized hoops and motorcross gear loving songstress Pink are all trending for 2017. Even though some of those trends especially worn in the early 00's period make us cringe slightly, incorporating a few items here with a 2017  approach will work wonders for your wardrobe this season!


Read on for the latest throwback staples of the season! 

1. Velour Track Suit Ensemble 

Before the rise of athleisure the velour tracksuit was a no-fail staple. Combined with an oversized bag, a Starbucks venti Latte and a miniature dog it was the celebrity uniform adorned by most starlets of the time. Many years after it's inevitable demise the velour tracksuit is having a come back. Vetement's collaboration with Juicy Couture for SS17 should have given us a hint. Kanye's YEEZY and Chloe are also adding this naughts staple into their collections. You can probably thank or cringe at Rihanna and Kylie Jenner for putting it back on the Insta Fash pack radar. 

2. Trucker Cap 

In the heyday of paparazzi and celebrity culture which was the early naughts they had to be accompanied by some much needed streetwear and paparazzi-proof attire. Black sunnies have always been favourable but headgear is also quite integral. For the early 00's that attire included the trucker cap. The ubiquitous accessory for every 20-something celebrity from Pharrell to Ashton Kutcher or Britney Spears. It was Hedi Slimane who resurfaced the the polarizing accessory for Saint Lauren's SS16 show. Nowadays, Gigi Hadid and Kylie and Kendall Jenner have all been spotted with the infamous cap.#2e2e2e"> 

3. Hot Pink 

As fashion recycles every 20 years the early naughts adopted the early 80's trend of pastel pink. When it came to the early naughts Paris Hilton not only brought the flirty colour back but basically built her brand by sporting bold non apologetic fuchia-pink. Around the same time that Legally Blonde premiered by the way. And even though we have been drowning in pastel pink for the past few seasons you can attribute the rise of bold pink to Ballenciaga's SS17 collection. Just wondering when Paris Hilton's come back is due? 

4. Motorcross Gear 

The rise of early aughties hip-hop is undeniable and it quickly infused the fashion runways too. From Pharell Williams, to Pink, EVE, or Christina Aguilera's Dirrty video and most rappers of the time donning heavy leather tracksuits and jackets usually styled with braided hair and lots of 'bling' or 'bling-bling' if you're truly old - school. Nowadays, labels like Maison Margiela, Alyx Studio, Supreme and of course Rihanna's Fenty x Puma SS18 collection at NYFW are completely in racing-inspired gear mode. 

5. Candy Coloured Sunglasses 

Colorful sunglasses were everywhere in early 00's and adored by women and men equally. From Sisqo to Justin Timberlake Eve and the Olsen Twins (they've gone a long way we know), all 00's stars were sporting this trend. Nowadays you'll find the likes of Gigi Hadid and her entourage in similar rose coloured glasses. 


6. Oversized Hoops 

The oversized hoops are a symbol of RnB and Hip Hop music. From Lauren Hill, to Missy Elliot, and EVE it's the accessory that goes hand in hand with a bandana, baseball cap or sleek back pony tail. In the aughts the trend went more mainstream and was adored by many including Victoria Beckham.These days, you can see anyone from Kendall Jenner, to the Hadid sisters or Rihanna rocking those giant gold hoops from designers like Area or minimal ones from Lombardi and Nandi Naya. 

7. Fishnets 

We're not saying you should go full-on Avril Lavigne and "Hollaback Girl"-era Gwen Stefani, necessarily, but there's definitely something about this pop version of post punk fashion that us bubbling back up all over social media. Usually worn underneath low rise wide legged ripped jeans and peaking from the waist and calves. And of course, the fishnet top is a great way to add some interest under a slip dress—or just over a bandeau bra, for a fun flirty look.

8. Pointy slingback pumps 

You can pinpoint this trend to the late 90's who resurfaced the super pointy kitten heel. It was in the early 00's though that the silhouette became more relaxed and transformed into a more elegant and feminine slingback pump with a mid-height lift. Doesn't Sophia Coppola's outfit look truly timeless? 

There you have it! The eight 00's trends that are coming back in a major way. Which ones will you be sporting this season? Check out our exclusive edit of all the items that will give you that extra aughts edge!

Is it just us or are we suddenly seeing everything through rose-tinted specs? Designers have been taking cues from ‘60s and ‘70s style and it seems the tinted sunnies craze is here to stay.


Instagram is awash with cool round frames in warm oranges and oversized sunglasses in statement blues and greens. We saw yellow specs on the runway at Christopher Kane and even Kendall and Gigi have jumped on the bandwagon when off duty. 

Fancy trying the trend for yourself? Check out our edit of the best high-end and affordable tinted sunglasses and whether you’re channelling your inner Spice Girl or hippy chick, rock the trend with ease.
