Look 1: Pick ‘n’ Mix
Pick a print and mix it up the way we do below.

“When it comes to Erdem y I always think of the most beautiful hand made embroidery and luxe fabrics. Well, Paris is the city of high fashion, Erdem Fall/Winter collection, presents a sublime broderie anglaise like, neon yellow and burgundy, lurex, Audrey Hepburn-esque look . I personally thought, how one might go about creating a similar outfit. Being that this look is very fashion forward, and what makes it fashionable is the use lace in such an unconventional way.”
Recreating the look from the British designer Erdem Fall/Winter collection, in a blue and black print.
Wear with a pair of heels in a bright contrasting color or print.
Here are some ideas for incorporating prints into the everyday.
“Peter Pilotto is definitely a major force in the “prints” movement and the mix bellow worn by Gwyneth Paltrow made it chic and uber wearable. Funnily enough I saw she picked this out right after seeing his Spring/Summer 2013 show pictures in Vogue June Issue and I kept looking for the right occasion to put together such an outfit like below.”

Retailing the outfit for you; using prints with similar effect by designers such as Preen and Stella McCartney. Finish off the look by mixing in black basics like a tote bag and a leather jacket.:
Take it from morning, to day, to night with sneakers for the school/College, flats for the office, and heels for nighty out.
Look 2: Peekaboo
Inspired by the sheer swaths of material in Antonio Berardi’s now iconic gown, I put together a few wearable looks with plenty of mesh, lucite, cut-outs, sheer panelling, and see-through details.

“WhatI like about Antonio Berardi is his magnificent skill in mixing and matching fabrics to create beautiful dresses, jackets and trousers. This season is all about having a sneak peek at body parts, whether it be a midriff, shoulder, cleavage or thigh. Antonio Berardi, Christopher Kane, Burberry, Tom Ford, Stella McCartney and many others have mastered this.”
A few peekaboo pieces I loved….
You can recreate this exact runway look from Stella McCartney for a spring or summer day.
For the beach or poolside, wear the jacket and shoes with a bathing suit instead.

Look 3: Colo(u)rware
Keep it simple by combining a few contrasting but complimentary colors in a minimal way.

“Colour is everywhere this season. I picked this flattering Victoria Beckham dress because of the fuchsia pink/purples. Emilia Wickstead creating some of my most favoured dresses.”
For you: by combining pastels with richer, darker tones will essentiate that colour look
For a fun weekend outfit that combines the same color concept as above.
A few colorful accessories you can add in.
Grey goes with pretty much any color. Start with a grey base and add bright pops…
Like these – a slightly subversive bag or cute, colorful sandals.
Simple dresses in vivid colors for days out.
Mixing blues, greys and greens…
Finish off with a pair of Charlotte Olympia heels or flats.
Look 4: Modern Classics
By pairing white with navy or black for bold, you automatically create simple and elegant outfits to keep in the wardrobe.

“Timeless clothes are always worth the investment . It doesn’t have to be pricey, even within a budget, you’ll be wearing this timeless collection for years and years. This Osman jumpsuit works now and will work for many years to come. Accessories – bags, shoes, sunglasses – are a great way to shake up any modern classic. I am especially grooving on the Tabitha Simmons boots below and the Mulberry Willow bag at the moment.”
Great, versatile wardrobe staples that won’t go out of style.

Keep it classic with this navy blue clutch and Mulberry’s shoulder bag, or make it modern with Christopher Kane’s jaguar-print clutch.
