Stylewatch: How to navigate the silly season

Summer is finally here. But, before you decide to run out and buy every maxi dress you can get your hands on, take a deep breath and let our sartorial guide to the silly season sink in.

Step one: Scale back in a big way on your make-up — a light, natural tan beats tranny-style foundation any day. Step two: Before you purchase said maxi dress, ask yourself two things: “Is it empire line?” and “Is it printed?” If the answer to either of these questions is yes, put it back on the rail. Step three: Yes, there has been a lot of camel about the past few summers, and yes, we’re happy, too, to see that colour is back.

But that does not excuse head-to-toe turquoise rig-outs, complete with feathered headpiece for every wedding or day at the races you’ll attend this summer. And never, ever, forget: legs or cleavage — see this week’s cover girl, Caroline Morahan. Live by it.
