Looking for some inspiration to spice up those holiday Instagram outfit posts? We’ve chosen our favourite bold style updates for you, from eyeliner to retro-inspired sports luxe. Wear them individually as statement pieces or all together during these warmer months to inject some excitement into your wardrobe.
Going Round the Block
Block colours are back. If you aren’t already wearing primary colours on your face, wear them on your body… or do both (plus turn up that saturation on your Instagram edits).

Be Bright Eyed
If you’ve ever wished you could find make-up in the same array of colours as your colouring pencils then you’re in luck. Crayola now have a make-up range with asos!

Paper Bag Trousers
Forget the same old, same old ‘jeans and a nice top’- now it’s all about the quirky trousers (nice top still recommended though)

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean heritage prints need be left behind. This is rainy Britain, after all, a fact that Burberry fortunately never forgets.

Suit Up for Summer
Modern suiting isn’t going anywhere- simply swap heavier fabrics for lighter ones during the sunnier months. If you manage to come across a blazer with matching high-waisted shorts (or dogs in a North London chip shop), you’re laughing.

Chunky ‘Dad’ Trainers
Forget heels – the new way to give yourself extra height is through extra chunky trainers. Bonus points if you pair them with classic tailoring.
