Dare to bare - retro 80s crop tops are back!

You either love them or you hate them, and i'll be honest - i was never a massive fan of crop tops. Maybe because i'm bitter about not being blessed with a perfect washboard stomach. But recently i've discovered they can look good on curvier girls too (in my honest opinion). I found a gorgeous vintage-look button up crop top in primark the other day, dirt cheap (see photo). I wear mine with high-waisted shorts, so I don't feel self-conscious about cracking out my not-so-flat stomach. They were chic in the 80s and they're back in fashion now. Definitely worth getting some for the summer. I recommend primark and new look!

my vintage-look button up crop top is from primark (dirtdirt cheap and loadsss of designs to choose from!!)

Tribal Luxe meets Beachwear

Safari prints meet glamour-jungle in Triya's gorgeous collection of swimwear. Be daring and go for a one-shoulder design - swimwear has never been so chic!

Blue Man's collection of tribal luxe swimwear features a gorgeous palette of reds, blacks and browns, with paisley and islamic-inspired prints.

I LOVE this ''monokini'' from h&m; it's an ultra-glamorous option for skinny and curvy girls alike!

Street-style fashion from Coachella Festival in Indio, CA

top and sunglasses, both juicy couture

bodysuit by Vanessa Bruno, Opening Ceremony shorts (I WANT THESE)

dress from miss selfridge

vest from Wool & the Gang, vintage shorts

my new love; wedges

I've never been brilliant in heels and, especially after a few drinks, I'm like bambi on ice. But with wedges you don't have to worry about tottering around like a fool - they're suprisingly easy to walk in! Wear them anywhere: daytime shopping trips, bbqs, nightclubs, they're extremely versatile. Nude tones elongate legs so if you're a midget (like me) or just want to create the illusion of longer legs, these nude wedges from New Look are perfect, at just £19.99!!
