Boys Corner

The shirt and tie combo might not be for everyone. But, worn with casual jeans, it's effortlessly smart-casual. Snappy dressers, grab this Burton shirt and tie for £28.

Pick of the Day

Remember how much I love ruffles? Well, here's another beauty for you from Lipsy! Wear with a plain silk blouse or cotton top and nude heels. One tip when wearing ruffles on this scale - don't overdo it! You don't want to look like candyfloss. Strictly plain and simple elsewhere please girls. Get this skirt now for £40.

Boys Corner

Well, as I did it for the girls, here's the scent you boys should be wearing. Masculine and rich, it's the only scent I love on guys, and plenty of my girlfriends agree! Georgio Armani Acqua di Gio Homme, £42.

Pick of the Day

I know it's technically not fashion, but I just fell in love with this scent! And, it goes with everything. A delicious mix of black patchouli rose with a woody, musky base for a feminine yet macho scent. The new Jean Paul Gaultier MaDame, £49.

Boys Corner

Everyone knows geeks are cool now. And my favourite geek of the moment, the new Doctor, Matt Smith, is leading the pack with his preppy mix style. Well, if it's good enough for Daisy Lowe. Whatever you do, don't try bow ties (they're still not cool). But definitely give a trilby/bowler hat a go. Tilt back on the head and wear with some square framed sunglasses. All you need now is a model on your arm... Try this checked trilby (above) from Tesco for £7.

Pick of the Day

Tangerine is The Colour of the season, adding a tropical splash to this average English summer. F&F at Tesco do a gorgeous orange shift dress for just £16 (see below), but if you're not ready to go all-out tangerine - why not add it to your handbag with this Ted Baker clasp purse!? Get it now for £49.

Boys Corner

Utility Roll Up Sleeve Shirt

This colour blue looks great on anyone, and the rolled-up sleeves give it laidback cool. Team with jeans or smart trousers, but never with shorts. From Asos, £25.

Pick of the Day

Slash Panel Dress

A certain celeb was wearing a gorgeous chiffon lemon yellow dress today, and inspired by this sorbet-coloured number, I hunted down this one for you! Buy it now from Topshop, £120. Wear with a simple pair of shoes (nothing too bright - this shade is not made for neon).

Party in the Park

AllSaints Check Sleeveless Tunic Shirt Dress

Okay, so I was a bit naughty. I was trawling through Asos for a "Boys Corner" piece and couldn't resist taking a sneaky peek at the women's section. If I hadn't, though, I would never have found this! This AllSaints for Asos dress, £85, is so cute! I'll be wearing it in the park for a lazy summer's day.

Boys Corner

Peoples Market Teill Skinny Jeans

Boys, boys, boys. Will you never learn!? No one, and I mean no one, wants to see your underwear - Simpsons boxers or no. For tongue-in-cheek, fashion-forward style, I'm recommending you take a leaf out of a certain fashion-worthy friend's book (he knows who he is) and try some jeans in shades of berry! Not everyone's choice, but I personally like a guy who wears something quirky with confidence. Try these Asos jeans for £45.

Pick of the Day

Leather Lace Up Shoe

This season the loafer is The Shoe to be seen in. However, if you're not quite ready for that step, these brogue-esque shoes from New Look are just the ticket for a reasonable £25. Either way, make sure you keep it masculine this season!

White Cookie Monster T-Shirt

I took one look at this Topman Tee, £16, and fell madly in love. Buy it now! (That's all I have to say on the matter).

Pick of the Day

Rose Print Sun Dress

Miss Selfridge are doing what they do best - sweet prints on girly dresses. This sun dress is £35, and whether worn with or without a belt, it's going to cinch in that waist and give you a figure Dita Von Teese would be proud of. I'm going to throw a faded denim jacket over the top to get that masculine-feminine edge.

Plastic Watch in Light Blue

The girls got their on-trend watches in tasty pastel colours, but Next have gone bold with their men's watches. I quite like this bright blue watch, £25. Quirky and summery, and definitely one for the boys.

Pick of the Day

Turn Up Mini Short

Yes, yes, YES! I am ready and raring for festival season with this turned-up, worn-out shorts from Warehouse, £25. Team with a straw trilby and plain vest, sandals for sun or wellies for rain, and your festival-hangover outfit is sorted.

Wayfarer Sunglasses

Geek cool with these New Look sunglasses for just £3. Go retro with this tortoiseshell pair, ideal for festivals and beer gardens alike.

Pick of the Day

Boyfriend Pocket Cardi

The weather can't make up it's mind, but I certainly can! Pop into New Look and get this gorgeous boyfriend cardi for just £16. It comes in an array of colours, but my favourite is this "summer fruits". Throw it over your jeans and Tee for a laidback look that doesn't involve goosebumps.

A Sequin too Far?

River Island Sequined Shoes

These River Island shoes have been all over the place lately! Sequined, pink and uber-high, you couldn't get more Carrie Bradshaw. However, surprise, surprise, these babies have had mixed reviews. What do YOU think? Worth the £54.99, or are they just a fashion no-go?
