Hottest Online Destination

Black Jumpsuit - £15.76

We've all been there. Selfie snapped, heels are on and you're primed to party perfection. It's Saturday night and the club is filled with glamorous girls laced in vivacious velvets, powdery pastels and crisp white ensembles. As you make your way to the bar, you saunter through a mask of expensive perfume and the unmistakable scent of L'Oreal Elnett. That's where you spot her; with her brunet hair coiffed into a chic chignon surrounded by beauties armoured in Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Lavish Alice.

She's wearing the same outfit as you.

The lime green Boohoo two piece you ordered especially for tonight. It's a fashion face off. Your efforts have been thwarted and your cheeks are turning a deeper shade of crimson by the second.

What do you do? There are these options:

One -Run. Run as fast as your 6 inch stilettos will let you and dive into a dark corner not resurfacing until closing time.

Two - You could order a large glass of wine and hope that your embarrassment will dissolve with the help of more alcohol.

Or three - Deal with it head on. Work that lipstick, pucker a smile in her direction and vow to never find yourself in this situation again.

With every high street packed out with the same shops, it's inevitable that we're going to bump into someone else wearing the same outfit as us. A chorus line of New Looks, Forever 21s and Zaras are cascaded all over the country. For a truly unique look, head to online boutique

SheInside is a fresh and vibrant online store that delvers catwalk looks and innovative styles ahead of the trends. The site is updated almost daily with flirty floral designs, stunning short suits and sumptuous jumpsuits.

White Out

There's been a white out on the red carpet lately, from  ivory suits to creamy court shoes - white is the hue of the moment. The bleached out trend is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd with minimal effort.

For a refreshing spin on the look, find a quilted two piece. Textured fabric and simplistic outfits have been favoured by Chanel, Lagerfeld & Co. for years. The classic tailoring never dates and makes for a chic outfit no matter the occasion.

Head to Missguided and invest in a Bridget Bardot inspired crop top. Make the style icon your muse and rock one of her infamous off the shoulder tops. Dare to bare your collar bones and streamline your arms with the stretchy fabric. To take the trend one step further, transform your outfit into an adorable suit with a matching skirt. If you're scared of heading out top to toe in crisp shades of white - break up the look with hints of black. Monochrome is still a huge trend and black detailing is the easiest way to slim down areas we wish weren't so curvaceous.

An all white ensemble adds the perfect amount of decadence to any evening outfit and a perfect hint of power to any board room meeting.

Mod Behaviour

Leggings are a wardrobe staple. They're every girl's best friend for good reason - their stretchy nature means they'll glide past your thighs with ease (even after a lunch time carb fest!) and their soft material means they're perfect for lounging round the house on a lazy Sunday. Channel your inner mod and sport a houndstooth pair this season. These high waisted beauties hide a multitude of sins - they have the sucking in power of spanx, while the busy design accentuates the derriere giving you a booty to rival Kim K & Co.

They're the perfect transition piece to take you through Spring without your knees chattering in a leg baring mini. The eye catching print works best when paired with a simple black top. Head to Bank and invest in a Bridget Bardot inspired crop top. If you're feeling a bit too pasty to bare your midriff, team the 60's leggings with a plain white tee and let your legs do all the talking.

Spring Greens

The pastel parade has been in town all winter and it seems to be staying for S/S too but that doesn't mean we can't indulge in a little bit of neon now and again. Pale pinks and subtle lavenders have been splashed on our outfits for months and they have even found their way into our make up bags - but now the sun is beginning to shine and the evenings are getting lighter - it's time to inject some of that brightness into our wardrobes. Take a trip to your local Topshop and pick up this grass green garment. The strappy dress is perfect for lazy Sundays in the park and looks equally as gorgeous on a night out sipping a Pinot or two. Make your outfit a real talking point and accessorize this jade beauty with a kitsch necklace. This adorable bird chain is from Topshop and really accentuates the look. Inject an extra pinch of personality and add some shades to your dishevelled hair. Now you can infuse some sunshine into your look - even if it's not actually shining...

Topshop Dress - £10 (Sale)
