We love: Burger battle

To say we’re a fan of a burger here at The Audit is a colossal calorific understatement.

So imagine our glee at the London opening of two legendary hamburger havens, Five Guys Burger and Fries and Shake Shack. Not fashion, strictly, but they’ll keep up your stamina in the sales.

We’re not sure about: Cut-out cossies

You may want to rethink your getaway wardrobe after a recent poll by  sunshine.co.uk revealed, unsurprisingly, that the holiday fashion trend voted the worst is the cut-out swimsuit. The swimwear hybrid was closely followed by the age-old faux pas of wearing socks with sandals.

We’re buying: Damir Doma

If you haven’t already been swept away in the sale season by all manner of bargain buys, you may want to get your credit card at the ready for another set of stylish steals. The LN-CC has delved into its archive for a very special Damir Doma sale with pieces available from previous collections.

We can’t wait for: New kicks

An event for those who know their Nikes from their New Balance; Harvey Nichols is hosting a one-day pop-up shop with Fresh Laces. Expect to find an array of sneaker specialists alongside exclusive one-off designs and even the original pair of Air Jordan X1’s worn by Michael Jordan in Space Jam.

20 July,  12-8pm, Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London SW1

We’re saving up for: Artistic accessories

If you’re looking for a new season handbag with a little more going on, head to Marni. This season Consuelo Castiglioni has brought on board Argentinian illustrator Romina Quirós and incorporated her iconic black ball figure motifs into a range of T-shirts and accessories.
