Everyone from Christian Louboutin to Stella McCartney is doing them. They are perfect for that breezy, summer look.


But go for accents, no head-to-toe 1980s looks, please.

Sleek swimwear

Forgo cutouts and fancy embellishments. Instead choose classic styles with unusual details such as drapes and crossover necklines.

Optical prints

Get dizzy with 3D prints that add a new dimension to your style.


Red, white and blue

This colour combination doesn't work unless you want to look like a Yankee.

Leopard-print kaftans

Leave them to senior citizens in Florida.

Holey/lattice work tops

We don't want to see your bra, even if it's lacey and pretty.

Needle heels

We hate them more than super high heels.
