H&M: DRESSING FOR A LONG DAY AT THE BEACH

A BIKINI PERFECT FOR SUNBATHING
Sure, there are more intricate styles this season, but we tend to return to the classic

triangle bikiniA bikini is usually a women’s abbreviated two-piece swimsuit with a bra top for the chest and underwear cut below the navel.. Simple and comfortable, perfect for catching sunrays – just loosen the

straps if you want to avoid tan lines. If you’re still chasing trend points, go for a

bright yellow one.

is to fasten the buttons imperfectly and to roll up the sleeves – this will keep the look

beachy and not too formal.

A FLOWY DRESS FOR AFTER-BEACH DRINKS
There’s no better feeling than going straight from the beach to sundown hangouts. Embrace

your beachy, slightly tousled hair and sun-kissed complexion! Opt for a flowy dressA dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). that

H&M: ELLIE AND NURIA ARE RIVIERA-READY

Exactly halfway between Paris and Rome lies Menton. A coastal town that is so captivating that generations of royals and nobles – including Queen Victoria, Winston Churchill and the princes of Monaco – have spent time in the little village that hides behind the Maritime Alps and is embedded among lush botanical gardens, lemon tree plantations and picturesque pastel houses.

Ellie, the styleStyle is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one. maven behind Slipintostyle, grew up in Martinique but moved to the south of France at 20. After four years on the glittering stretch of coastline, she relocated to Paris, but still makes her way down south whenever she gets a chance.

“There’s a very special atmosphere down here that’s different from anywhere else in France. The people are so hospitable, and there’s an air of mid-century glamour that creates a pretty unique lifestyle. Film classics like Bonjour Tristesse, To Catch a Thief and La Piscine still convey a pretty accurate picture of what the Riviera is like.”

When the word style slips into question, Ellie lights up even more. A self-proclaimed shoesA shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function. and mini-bag aficionado, she launched her inspirational account just over a year ago and has gained both followers and made fashion friends since. One of them is photographer, creative director and style icon Nuria Val.

She’s still my fashionFashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture.

With Nuria fresh in from Barcelona, the Mediterranean is calling.

For a perfect summer day, Nuria and Ellie keep their packing lists short and sweet: fruit, sunglasses, ice cream, kaftans, playing cards and – of course – swimsuits, bikinis, and some more swimsuits.

“I usually just bring a friend, some fruit and my favorite music. Then we eat and talk and sunbathe all day long. It’s perfect,” Ellie says.

The two have a lot of things in common, but their love of nature might be their biggest shared passion – drawing inspiration from it in all they do. Further proof of this is the fact that they both concur that summer style is just a different term for always wearing bikinis or swimsuits underneath any outfit to be ready to plunge in at any given time. Function is always the most important thing when it comes to beachwear.

“All my inspiration and motivation come from nature. Wherever I travel, my goal is always to find something different and something beautiful,” Nuria says as she stares at the sea wearing a one-shoulder bikini paired with a crisp cotton shirt.

ASOS: TOP 5 AUTUMN TRENDS FROM COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK

Ah, Copenhagen. Home of The Bridge, great bacon, and some of the best styleStyle is a manner of doing or presenting things,

especially a fashionable one. you’re likely to see. From denim hacks to the best

way to clash your prints, the motto to stick to for AW18 is: ‘What would the Danes do?’

Here are the top five styling tricks we’ll be rocking for autumn…

Suits you
For AW18 the trouser suit is oversized and cooler than ever. It’ll be the hardest-working

thing you’ll buy this season – those trousers would be perfect belted over a logo tee,

and the blazer is made for slinging over a midaxi dressA dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt

with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece

garment). with dad trainers and a bum bag. Best paired with a sleek bun and an

undercurrent of sass.

Long and short of it
Not a trend we saw coming, admittedly, but long denim shorts are this year’s transeasonal

master stroke. Worn just above the knee, with a blazer or check shirt, they’re the middle

ground between trying to keep the spirit of summer alive (understandable) and wanting warm

legs without giving in to jeans yet. Also, they’re easy to do at home – just crack on

with a pair of scissors and a steady hand.

The clash
The main rule when it comes to prints this season? There are no rules. Anything goes, from

floral pyjama blouses mixed with leopard-print skirts, to patterned shirts (shout out to

Prada for the most extra design of the season) with geometric midis. Just chuck it all on

– then chuck on some more for good measure.

Done in one
Who doesn’t love a jumpsuit? A full outfit in only one piece of clothingClothing (also called clothes) is fiber and

textile material worn on the body. The wearing of clothing is mostly restricted to human

beings and is a feature of nearly all human societies.? Sign us up. For AW18, go

for a loose, belted version with cropped legs and look out for earthy, rust shades or

classic black or navy. Scandi favourite Monki has a brilliant selection. Just dress it up

with cat-eye shades and gold jewellery and you’re good to go.

Good sport
It’s not just prints we’re mixing up this season. Take a tip from the Balenciaga campaign

(or Joey in Friends) and layer an oversized sporty zip-up over your summer wardrobe. The

mix of animal print with 90s-style colour-blocking make this high-low dressing at its very

finest. Now excuse us while we go and try it out…

TOPSHOP: How To Wear Your Favourite Summer Piece This Autumn

Whether you want to face it or not, summer is coming to an end and autumn is on its way.

key pieces and styled them with colder days in mind…

Take your printed hero dress of the summerSummer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring

H&M: HOW TO CREATE GLOWING SKIN WITH BRONZER

Keeping things natural have always been Nuria Val’s watchwords. With a full face of

freckles and a tan that doesn’t quit, the best beauty trick the Barcelona-based

photographer and styleStyle is a manner of

doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one. icon has up her sleeve is

creating the perfect summer glow.

“My makeup routine is pretty natural and simple. I clean my skin and I use some

moisturizer to hydrate it. After that I put some highlighter on and I do my eyebrows,”

she says during her journey on The Summer Express.

To enhance her summerSummer is the hottest of

the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the

Bronzing Drops to her cheekbones, nose, jawline and along her hairline. Then she applies

H&M Beauty’s Blusher Highlighter Travel Duo to the high points of her face and a few

brushes on the apples of her cheeks.

WHAT’S ONE BEAUTY PRODUCT YOU CAN’T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT?
“A highlighter palette.”

Nuria’s fashion and beauty style always depends on where she’s at, what mood she’s in and

– most importantly – what her plan is. In the summer, the best plan is always to focus

less on eyes and let your lips be in focus.

fingers.”

WHAT KIND OF LIPSTICK ARE YOU INTO?

brown tones that I use also for the cheeks.”

ASOS: YOUR NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL OUTFIT INSPIRATION

For many Londoners, the August Bank Holiday means one thing and one thing only: Notting

Hill Carnival. A weekend of festive floats, music, dancing, delicious food and cans of Red

Stripe ensue, not to mention some next-level carnival costumes to fall in love with. So,

if you’re heading to Ladbroke Grove this weekend and are in need of a little sartorial

inspiration, our ASOS Insiders have happily brought all the carnival vibes early.

Snakes and ladders
What is particularly great about Insider Ebony’s getup is that if you’ve got non-

carnival plans later that evening, this outfit will carry you right on through. The

snake-print trousersTrousers (pants in North

America and Australia) are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering

both legs separately (rather than with cloth extending across both legs as in robes,

skirts, and dresses). In the UK the word “pants” generally means underwear and not

trousers.[1] Shorts are similar to trousers, but with legs that come down only to around

the area of the knee, higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To

distinguish them from shorts, trousers may be called “long trousers” in certain contexts

such as school uniform, where tailored shorts may be called “short trousers”, especially

in the UK. are extra enough that the rest of the look should be easy – a cross-

body bag is especially useful when trying to negotiate a corn on the cob and a cold drink

while dancing.

If sunshine happens for us this weekend, let Olive’s sweet separates be your guiding

light. Mom-fit Daisy Dukes are the perfect basics to balance a very extra cropped sweaterA sweater (American English) is a knitted

garment intended to cover the torso and arms.[1] A sweater is either a pullover or a

cardigan, distinguished in that cardigans open at the front while pullovers do not. In

British English, a pullover may also be called a jumper or jersey, and there is no

hypernym equivalent to sweater covering both pullovers and cardigans. and if the

mercury really rises, a logo sports bra underneath will do nicely. Pick chunky dad

trainers to bring those 90s elements firmly into the new season.

Insider Astrid’s outfit, if it could speak, would say this: don’t just go to the party,

be the party. A rainbow mini dressA dress (also

known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or

a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). with retro ring-pull

deets is just about the most fun a half a metre of fabric can be. Add sunnies, sneakers

and as many delicate necklaces as you can manage to stack on and you’re winning.

If sporty streetwear is your vibe – no matter the occasion – Barbara’s fresh carnival

look is worth a gander. The festive elements are in there, sure – there’s a whole load

of matching bright yellows and some totally tropical nails. But the essence of the look is

still sporty-as with a logo-tastic adidas bucket hat, camo running shorts and serious dad

trainers.

Some of us can’t remember a time when we didn’t wear floaty dresses every day, and that

’s fine too. As ASOS Kicki demonstrates, you can bring your flouncy little number to

Notting Hill by adding two small details. First up, a belt bag for all your little bits,

second, a big ole pair of platform trainers to show you mean business. Can dance, will

dance.

H&M: CLASSIC STRIPES – THE MODERN WAY

THE NEW SILHOUETTE
Try a new way to wear your favorite blouseA blouse is a loose-fitting upper garment that was formerly worn by workmen, peasants, artists, women and children.[1] It is typically gathered at the waist or hips (by a waistband or belt) so that it hangs loosely (“blouses”[2]) over the wearer’s body.
– stylists and Insta-darlings are experts on these simple but clever styling tricks. Simply tie a knot at the waist to create a new silhouette, and partner with a pair of loose-fit shorts for effortless elegance.

THE DOUBLE-UP
The quickest way to make a classic print more interesting – add more prints! Contrasting stripes make the look a little less preppy and a lot more cool and chic.

THE SUBTLE STATEMENTS
For a perfect hint of seaside chic – layer an on-trend, voluminous blouse over a classic, striped SwimsuitSwimwear is clothing designed to be worn by people engaging in a water-based activity or water sports, such as swimming, diving and surfing, or sun-orientated activities, such as sun bathing., or tie a scarf around your head and wear it with this season’s best sunglasses. Classy and cool.

THE TRENDY KIMONO
A linen-mix kimonoThe kimono(きもの) (着物?)[1] is a Japanese traditional garment. The word “kimono”, which actually means a “thing to wear” (ki “wear” and mono “thing”),[2] has come to denote these full-length robes. The standard plural of the word kimono in English is kimonos,[3] but the unmarked Japanese plural kimono is also sometimes used. Kimono is always used in important festival or formal moments, it is the representative of polite and a very formal clothing. is the best thing you can wear to the beach (and anywhere else) this summer. Pair with simple sandals and a salty, wet hairstyle.

H&M: GOODBYE SUMMER

Our favorite fashion season? The one in-between: When brisker air calls for knit sweaterA sweater (American English) is a knitted garment intended to cover the torso and arms.[1] A sweater is either a pullover or a cardigan, distinguished in that cardigans open at the front while pullovers do not. In British English, a pullover may also be called a jumper or jersey, and there is no hypernym equivalent to sweater covering both pullovers and cardigans. and long-sleeved dresses, but the sun is still warm enough for bare legs.

We escaped the city for one final weekend at the summer house – this is what we packed.

LIGHT DENIM AND BREEZY SHIRTS
The best thing about summer being (almost) over – we get to wear all of our favorite jeansJeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871[1] and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873. Originally designed for cowboys and miners, jeans became popular in the 1950s among teenagers, especially members of the greaser subculture.
again. A white or light-wash denim is perfect for the transitional season. Pair with a classic knit for cooler days, and a breezy shirt for the lingering summer days.

CREAM COLORS
The perfect color scheme for easing into fall. We love monochrome cream looks – crisp denim styled with a classic tank top or a cable-knit sweater.

INDIGO AND CAMEL
What we long for this season: clean, indigo-blue denim, and beige shades. The denim skirtA skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits. is the perfect transitional piece – easy to dress up or down depending on the weather.

BOHO BABE
Bohemian vibes are perfect for September days stumbling between summer and fall. This season we’re all about reinvented 70s classics like peasant blouses, long-sleeved dresses and crochet tops.

THE KNIT TRICK
A cozy, preferably oversized, knitted sweater is the perfect throw-over for chilly afternoons. Wear with bikini bottoms by the sea, or with a flimsy skirt for a walk in the city.
