Pippa O'Connor's easy summer look.

It's the middle of August, and we finally feel safe in acknowledging that it's been a fab summer. With the benefit of hindsight, it might be time to establish the rules of summer city dressing for our new, mainland-Europe climate.

1. With the crop-top explosion, the old rule of legs or boobs must now be amended to legs or boobs or abs, so pick your best bit and show it off.

2. Tanned flab looks better than pale flab, so find a good tone that isn't ludicrously mahogany and shlap on some fake tan. 


3. Black opaque tights have no place in the summer. Two words: sweaty crotch. One word: yuck. Instead, aim to emulate Pippa O'Connor's easy summer look,  which proves that, when in doubt, throw on the Breton.
