Fugly Flats, or Fashionably Ugly Flats (yes, that’s really what they’ve been named) are everywhere this season. Designers have reworked them in different styles for S/S 14, and one example is the ’80s pool slider.

There were bling-tastic sliders at Prada and Phillip Lim, metallics at Chloé and crossover styles at Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant, not to mention the original Adidas sliders, which are back too.

For the budget shopper, you’ll find the best high street takes on the trend at Zara, Aldo and Urban Outfitters.

33 Pieces = Perfect Wardrobe

6th July 2012

I read a piece in Grazia a few weeks ago which quoted April Glassborow, head of womenswear buying at Harvey Nicks that says the perfect wardrobe can be achieved in just 33 pieces. This is split into 10 Tops, 10 Bottoms, 3 Dresses, 2 Bags and 3 Jackets and apparently this number of items can produce a staggering 3090 outfit options! I thought I’d give it a go and put together a summer wardrobe…and here it is….(yep- some of the items prices def sway to the ‘in my dreams’ category)

Top Row L-R Cotton shirt, Carven £182, Beaded blouse, Rohit Ghandi & Rahul Khanna $144 www.perniaspopupshop.com, Breton shirt, Maxmara £158 www.matchesfashion.com.
