Charlotte Carter Allen - Model

The sports bra has become an acceptable layering tool - and why not? Charlotte combines her with clashing jazzy prints on a vintage shirt and Primark skirt - looking all the more current as a result.

Jade Conroy - Journalist

The Duster Coat is the new silhouette of the season - pick one up like Jade from your Mum's closet! Team with a crisp tennis dress and mules like this Zara pair to keep it looking now.

Martha Thorpe - Student

Add colourful hippy jewellery to an all-black and uber minimal tough-girl look like Martha, to make your outfit unique - a matching fringe is not essential, but fabulous.

Noreen Goodwin - Mother of eight

We love new Milan-based designer Stella Jean and Noreen wears hers with extra chic by adding metallic Acne heels and a Chanel perfume bottle bag - ultra-cute.

Sandra Kaminska

Sandra has defaulted to some big boy designers with this Dolce & Gabbana skirt and Louis Vuitton sneakers but she knows how to keep them cool: sporty touches and a slouchy ensure that her look isn't too precious.

Lucrezia Moncada di Paterno

Lucrezia is flying the Zara flag in this boxy white shirt. Daytime separates appear to be the way forward for Cannes - especially when chic and smart (rather French, non?) like these.

Candela Novembre

You ain't nobody in Cannes without some monogrammed leather goods: a Louis Vuitton bucket bag will see you through the crowd of A-listers with a nautical-striped look.

Silence Thay

Silence wears a top and shorts from Zara and looks easy-breezy for Cannes - no glitz needed when you have simple white cotton and khaki.

Ingrid

Brave enough to wear a skort suit to Cannes? Ingrid gets lots of points and her long jacket / slip-on skate shoes from H&M add extra cool to her individual look.

Martha Graeff

Martha wears a classic Chanel Boy bag with a cute sporty ensemble of sweatshirt and ripped shorts, showing us how to make an investment piece look perfectly low-key.

Christina

This is how to mix-up a nautical stripe (from Ralph Lauren): flip the cuffs and throw on a floaty vintage skirt.

Jennie

An oversized silk blouse is a great fit for a structured skirt like this one from Aussie brand Shakuhachi. Picking out the silver detailing with complimentary rope sandals and Michael Kors sunnies ties the outfit together expertly.

Nan Richards, Fashion PR

Nan knows how to ride the crest of uptown meets downtown wave with this collegiate-style Sandro sweater and metallic Whistles skirt. Matching silver sandals and a Chloe bag add chunky daytime touches to her glitz.

Ella Patten, Marketing Executive

Ella is doing her bit for the A-line dress comeback campaign. This vintage number is cool in a utility shape with huge pockets and a chunky belt her sporty Lacoste tote bag adds extra cool - especially in red's favourite complimentary colour: green.

Orsalia Munkeni, Designer

Orsalia shows us how to do summer layering in this slouchy Topshop waistcoat. Printed shorts custom-made in Africa ensure that she packs a unique punch too.

Weez Haycocks, Works in a cupcake shop

Weez has fully adopted the skate trend that has infiltrated the fashion world lately. The loose shape of this Joryich t-shirt dress combined with black luxe accessories from Nike and New Look means her short hemline looks super casual.

Steph Barry, IT Developer

How to go out with no trousers on? Add a preppy cable-knit jumper and some knee-high H&M socks to your Urban Outfitters shirt to distract passers-by with your studious-style. A super chic mannish coat from Zara will top it off.

Alby Bailey, Design Assistant

Alby knows how to work this skirt length without looking to pretty in pleats. Her vintage midi looks positively normcore with River Island ankle boots and a Topshop anorak.

Anastasia Orlova

A preppy Burberry trench and Zadig & Voltaire shirt are given extra sass with a Maje mini and Forgal knee-high socks - the key is all in the mix.

Charlotte De Carle

Charlotte has made an accessoriy of her House of Marley headphones, combined with black patent boots make the perfect tough-girl foil for her tropical Topshop boilersuit.

Gizele Oliveira, Model

Gizele has successfully married a bit of woodstock (fringed bag) with '90s accessories (plastic choker and heart-shaped glasses) with this irreverent statement bomber. It's all about adding a dash of eccentricity to nail a thrown-together look.

Naomi Sharpe

Kimonos were EVERYWHERE in Coachella and are set to be a staple cover-up this summer - get one like this from Boohoo. Hippie '70s is a great touch for a city denim look. Extra points for the off-key pointy flats.

Shahara Prajapa

These clompy Tipp-Ex white sandals from River Island are the perfect pop to lift Shahara's black body-con crop ensemble from Topshop.

Paula Goldstein di Principe, Creative Director

Paula has taken on this summer's hottest denim trend: the white dungaree. This Frame pair look perfectly boyish with an Antipodium sweater and luxe leather Eytys sneakers: a lesson in laid-back cool.

This week we pounded the pavements of the fashion graduate shows to see what looks are ticking the trendsetters box (clutch)es...

According to the summer-savvy girls on the street, it's now warm enough to wear tropical prints, micro minis and crop tops (knee-high socks seem to be a blustery-day trend too). Denim is de rigueur, as usual, but this summer it's taken a twist: try teaming it with a hippie kimono, try-on white dungarees or adopt an oversized coat for a new way to wear the world's favourite fabric. Alternatively use a statement coat to up the ante of your outfit: an anorak, printed bomber or mannish crombie are the perfect tough-girl antidote if you're summer dress is feeling a bit too pretty. This season's dressing is all about the mix.
