Hot looks to make your tan pop

Bar a fantastic few days in the Scilly, the tan I’ve nurtured this year is entirely home grown – I’ve spent much of the summer skyving er I mean researching the best bits of our county and that means hitting the road/ beach/ moors to bring you the delights of the Duchy. And I’m not ready to let go of it yet. So, stop with the #autumn hastags please! Here’s my handpicked guide for hanging on to summer’s last call …


  1. Cheeky leopard espadrilles, because summer is a state of mind right? Soludos Dali at Onda £46
  2. Khaki still rules! It’s a perfect summer-autumn transition colour, and ok, ok we are edging in to jeans season. Team these La Parisienne jeans with white or orange for a classic look. Plum Boutique £104
  3. Raspberry skinny leather belt, Maison Scotch at Plum Boutique £34
  4. My last foray into fake tan had me looking like a Trump-OompaLoopa lovechild. Here’s a lush gradual daily tanning cream to prolong your natural tan from Pure Nuff Stuff £14.50
  5. Braid tan wrap bracelet with hermatite and clear crystals Boho Betty at Muddy Boutique £25
