Selecting swimwear is one of the most stressful times of the year. Make sure you try on your costume from last year to ensure it’s best for your shape, especially if your weight tends to fluctuate. These top tips will ensure that you stand out for all the right reasons!

Shrink stomachs

For those ladies who are self-conscious of their tummies, there are lots of clever tummy control swimsuits which will slim your silhouette. The unique panels and material will smooth your stomach, define your waist and give you a great beach body. This adorable piece by Miraclesuit. £138, will make you look like a 1950s pinup as it claims to make you look 10lbs lighter!

My top tip for avoiding over-packing your suitcase is to select a few well-chosen, best loved pieces that work well together. Stick to a simple colour palette that allows you to mix-and-match items for a multitude of outfits.

Holiday Must-Haves

It’s wise to travel in a comfortable pair of skinny jeans. Choose a neutral shade you can wear throughout the holiday paired with an array of bright, print or neutral tops. I love Warehouse for its great selection of denim in a variety of colours for all shapes and sizes.

A pair of black or beige shorts that you feel comfortable in are a necessity for wearing in the day with vests, shirts or jackets. For a relaxed, yet stylish daytime look pair with flat, strappy sandals. For the evening, transform the outfit by accessorising with bright heels for a sexy night-owl look.

It's game on ladies, but don’t sweat it; this look is simple and you don’t have to squeeze yourself into lycra to rock this trend.

With the Olympics just around the corner, this look takes inspiration from the athletes, transforming sportswear into stylish, sexy pieces.

A plethora of racer-front vests, crop tops, high-top trainers and luxury joggers have hit the high-street in a multitude of performance fabrics such as neoprene, leather, cotton all with a splash of neon.

Spring and summer are the seasons to lose the heavy foundation and blusher and embrace a more natural look. It’s important to ensure that your skin is in top notch condition as you minimise the amount of makeup you are using.

Fortunately, there are plenty of tips, tricks and products to have you glowing on the inside and out.

Your first step to clear, bright skin is to make time once a week for an exfoliating treatment. However, regularly and thoroughly you may cleanse, pores become trapped with dirt and oil causing blackheads or blemishes.

Zaea shorts

Fingers crossed temperatures are starting to soar and we'll soon be waving goodbye to our rain macs and Hunter wellies.

Shorts were seen all over the catwalks for Spring/Summer ’12 with the likes of D&G, Peter Pilotto and Mary Katrantzou mismatching prints for a playful, vibrant look. Alternatively, if you prefer a more subtle take on the trend opt for a clean, classic look as seen at Anna Sui and Erdem.

Don’t shy away from shorts if you are no longer in your 20s, there are plenty of options to suit all ages on the high street. Embrace the flower power trend with these fashion-forward short shorts by Zara (pictured below). This style is more suited to the younger lady and a stunning floral print is sure to get you noticed this season. Carry off a casual day time look by dressing with a plain shirt and flat shoes for a relaxed, yet stylish outfit. Alternatively, for those gutsy fashionistas pair your print shorts with a mismatching print top for a flamboyant fashion statement!
