YOUTHFUL FLUSH

Ask anyone about the one look they remember from Clueless and the answer will undoubtedly be Cher’s yellow plaid outfit. If wearing bright colours from head to toe is not your strong suit, don a pantsuit and add colours instead with your accessories like chunky bracelets and a necklace. Take this look from the office straight to aftersix drinks – it’s that versatile.

Blazer and pants, both from Ezzati Amira. Crop top, stylist’s own. Heeled sandals, Topshop. ‘Vicky’ bag, Saint Laurent. Earrings, bracelets, rings and necklace, all from Les Georgettes.

THE LOOK 

Cher’s known to gravitate to pink shades all over her face, but if you’re worried it would be a bit too much, opt for neutral shades on the eyes (think taupe or light browns) with a touch of shimmer on the centre of your lids for dimension. Sweep a light pink blush on the apples of your cheeks and finish with a pink tinted balm. This way, you’ll still retain that youthful flush without the hue being overpowering. Then, with a hair straightener, slick your strands down before curving your hand outwards gently for a slight flip.
