The preppy look gets a cool-girl update
Collared shirts and frocks have always been preppy staples, dressing up even the most basic of looks, but this season they’re standing out in a major new way. Seen on celebrities like Ashley Madekwe, Kate Mara and Alexa Chung, printed and color-blocked collars are the perfect way to switch up a simple look. Pair yours with edgy separates like boyfriend jeans and booties for an off-duty look, or look polished pretty in lace and lipstick.
Make your collar pop with these fun and funky must-have picks, suitable for every season!

10 “IT” Bucket Bags for Summer
This season it’s all about the bucket bag, and in particular, the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. Beloved by bloggers and celebrities, the much coveted carryall was an instant hit when it launched in 2013, selling out almost instantly and prompting waiting lists galore. It pretty much single-handedly sparked the current trend for bucket bags, which are all over the high street as well as designer stores.
If you can’t get your hands on the bag that started it all, then check out the multitude of versions out there. Whether you’re modern, Bohemian, rocker or classic, there’s surely a style for you. From a ’70s-inspired Gucci number to ’90s-style Chanel in white and gold, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites below. If you buy one bag this season, make sure it’s a bucket bag!

Men’s Summer Trend: Hawaiian Tees
You must have spotted these men before: tourists that don hawaiian print shirts, sometimes matching with their significant others, always in ill-fitting pieces. After seeing the unstylish ways of wearing hawaiian prints, you can’t be blamed for choosing to avoid them.
With labels re-imagining Hawaiian prints and putting them on sleek tees this season though, it’s time that you reconsider your stance on the print and check out on-trend Hawaiian Tees you can rock this summer.
Contemporary Hawaiian Tees
The days of baggy tackiness for men’s tropical-inspired fashion items have passed. Today, guys can take advantage of Hawaiian tees that have slimmer fits and a greater variety of colors and designs- the surf board, hula girl and palm tree combo isn’t your only choice anymore.
Definitely pair these tees with tailored shorts and and stylish sneakers for a casual look, but also try to mix them up! Use them to create some contrast with dressier, lightweight trousers and leather shoes.
Ready to take the plunge with this cool print? Check out the picks by our editors below, and shop the best Hawaiian tees this season!

Well, There’s a Ring You Don’t See Every Day…
ASOS’ Rock ‘N’ Rose Bitch Ring causes quite a stir, but it takes someone with a super cool, no-nonsense attitude to make this piece of jewelry stand out right.
Pair it with your studded biker boots, leather jacket and white t-shirt or go preppy with a button-down collared shirt and skater skirt.
You don’t need a Fairy God Mother to spell you a puffy ball gown and fragile glass slippers. Just discover Chanel you’ll love on Wantering.
