HOT

Metallics

Either in gold or bronze - or just pick a fabric with a sheen for a cool summer look.

Chambray

This lightweight fabric looks like denim but is much lighter and more comfortable. We're sold.

The traveller look

Incorporate subtle prints and pieces with an ethnic vibe - if you're mistaken for a backpacker, you've got it all wrong.

Raffia

This fabric is cool yet nonchalant - if it's good enough for Chanel ...

NOT

Denim shoes

Taking the 1980s look way too far.

Socks worn with heels

Miuccia Prada may advocate it but we don't.

Peg-leg trousers

We're still trying to find a redeeming quality in them.

The new 'trendy' tracksuit bottoms

We declared them cool until we tried them on.
