So over: Summer Multi-trending

Look, we get it: we all feel a bit addled with the summer dressing. For a brief moment, about now, we might, just might, feel we've nailed it. Alas, it's too little, too late. We've already wasted the summer trying to decide if we are, in fact, gypsy-blouse people - we're not.

Instead of picking a few of the season's trends that work for us, we panic and go the 'throw everything at the problem' route, leading to unfortunate combinations, bad hats, or jarring juxtapositions of, say, 'gypsy meets rock chick' - see even the normally stylish Aoibhin Garrihy, pictured, making a rare fashion misstep.

Trying to tick too many trends in one go is really only for highly skilled stylistas.

Perhaps, next May, a quick scroll through this summer's style sins on Instagram will remind us all that the yellow of 2016 simply did not work.
