Style Watch: How do I get that summer sizzle in our cool climate?

'I'm finding it really difficult to dress in this weather and I'm reverting back to black when the temperature drops. I really like Isabel Marant S/S 11 collection, which is so cute and summery, but pink shorts aren't very practical in this climate! How can I get the look without frostbite?'
Zara may have done sweet look-a-like pink denim shorts, but while the temperatures are still volatile, try whitestuff.com for cute, cropped, baby-pink jeans.
White, coloured or pastel jeans are a great season swapover from blue or black denim that instantly say summer without being cold!
Next up, Marant did super-sweet hand-knit style fisherman sweaters -- in classic ecru, which is summer-friendly yet cosy!
Get the original from BT's or netaporter.com or try Oasis's cardie aran knit, which is currently reduced from €69 to €31 -- steal!
Marant knows how to work a summer boot, so why not try tan cowboy style booties, which look summery, but, unlike sandals, keep your toes toasty and dry when the clouds start storming over!
Finally, keep chills and showers at bay with Marc O'Polo's practical but chic parka -- the perfect weekend throw-over.'
