*Steel drum sounds* Yep, it’s that time of year again. It’s bank holiday, everyone’s enjoying the last dregs of summer and, once again, the very cool masses will descend on west London for some stylish frivolity.

INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
WEAR THIS TO NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL

Let’s be honest, retro R&B music videos were the pinnacle of fashion and this dreamy look is the love child of TLC and Destiny’s Child (circa I’m a Survivor, obvs). The camo is right on the money for 2017 with Marc Jacobs, Kenzo and Coach all championing it this year. Take it from catwalk to street-chic by opting for an acid-yellow hue and wearing it in slouchy combat trousers, held up with a nylon utility belt.
Keep the throwback theme running strong by pairing the trousers with a belly-baring top, clompy high-top sneaks and one butter-yellow canvas jacket. Party on.
