You can create a feminine look with a floral dress, delicate jewelry, and ankle strap heels. Try shades of pink with your key pieces to instantly soften up a look. Think of textured fabrics too, like lace or cutouts. Celeb inspirations include: Eva Mendes, Taylor Swift or Sarah Jessica Parker.

“This is my favorite look — cool! Says Dimmock. “It's edgy, yet effortlessly laid back style that is perfect for weekend's relaxed days. Try a moto jacket with skinny jeans, or slouchy boyfriend jeans and a printed tank top paired with a blazer and loads of stackable bracelets. Gwen Stefani is the perfect cool inspiration!
