Patterned clothing can be fashionable but stripes, dots and checks should be accompanied by something plain and should NEVER be worn together. I saw a friend wearing all three at once and I couldn't help but stop her, take a photo, and tell her what she was wearing was totally unacceptable. People make excuses such as 'it's comfortable' or 'it's my fashion sense' however just like double denim, it never has and never will be in style.

Summer blues are returning. Wearing blue is one of the season's key trends which has been flooding our streets. If you fancy a blue look then there's a sea of blue clothing displayed across the high street.

This weekend why not head to the local high street and see if you can find an outfit to fit in with this trend.

If you're a man and wondering 'what can I do to look good this summer', there is a new trend sweeping the nation and I'm going to let you in on it. The blues and beiges are looking sizzling this summer. Why not try a blue shirt with beige trousers and brown shoes for a classy yet chic look.

Remember what you wear is partly to do with what is comfortable. However, it is important to dress in a presentable way – dress as you would like to be addressed, or, in the words of fashionista Rachel Zoe: 'Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.'
