The J Brand Ellis style

What we love, we're buying and we're not so sure about

We love… Blue jean baby

A new pair of jeans is just what the doctor ordered in this tricky end-of-sale period. The J Brand Ellis style, which has been dubbed the "Strinny" because it's a hybrid of straight and skinny, is top of our shopping list. £200, selfridges.com

We're not sure about… Slogan styles

Hair accessories brand Kitsch is launching a range of slogan hair ties. We have nothing against slogans, but there's a time and a place for them – having a band in your hair that reads "nerd" is not it.

From £4, mykitsch.com

 

We're buying… Rose touché

Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Éclat is a cult beauty product that can be found in most women's make-up bags. For summer it's been given a makeover and for the first time is available in a rose tint. £25, boots.com

We can't wait for… Sexy smalls

Victoria's Secret may be known for its jaw-dropping catwalk shows, but its everyday lingerie is actually surprisingly wearable. The new range, Simple Sexy, unfortunately won't transform you into an angel, but does promise a perfect fit. From £32, victoriassecret.co.uk

We're visiting… Show-dry bar

If you like a bouncy barnet, head down to Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, London, where luxury hair-care brand SHOW Beauty has launched its first ever blow-dry station. A styling session is complimentary with the purchase of any product in the range.

From £30, harveynichols.com
