Styling tips of the week

17 June 2009

We're all about updating our wardrobe on the cheap right now. Which is why we've been rifling through the rails of our charity shop and quizzing Grazia's Shopping Editor – and resident styling guru – for her tips. Here's her regular Wednesday afternoon styling advice...

1. Tuck some shoulder pads into last season's knit or jacket to rock the ’80s power look ahead of the crowds. At John Lewis they come in small, medium or large (for the brave only), prices starting at £2.95. Cropped tuxedo jacket, £34.99, River Island

2. Pull out those chunky, buckled boots you wore last winter from the back of your wardrobe and team with a girly dress. We predict this will be a BIG TREND at the festivals.

3. It's a little too hot for tights and too cold for bare legs – so what are we meant to do? Our leggings look a little dated (unless they're printed) so we are all rocking the DIY stirrup leggings with a pair of footless tights pulled under your heels. It looks great with glads and elongates your legs. What's not to love? Illuminate Stirrup Legging, £22, Topshop
