The £29.99 wicker New Look bag you NEED… and four other holiday must-haves

Fabulous' deputy fashion editor Clemmie Fieldsend is on-hand with the best breathable buys for your wardrobe – so you can dress for the summer without letting it all hang out.

CELEB STYLE CRUSH: Maya Jama

More than just a style crush, Maya Jama, 23, is my girl crush. She is just great.

The girlfriend to Stormzy – which I’m sure she hates – is a TV presenter, Radio 1 DJ and has her own collection with online retailer PrettyLittleThing.

Her Instagram, with 594K followers, is of course full of the usual I’m gorgeous poses.

Yet it's not all preened to perfection – she likes to keep it real too with bad angles, fan appreciation and let's not forget her hilarious Insta-stories.

And this just makes me love her even more because she’s actually just like the rest of us.

Her collaboration with PrettyLittleThing is full of summer essentials with a street-style twist.

It’s heavily sports-luxe inspired for every day wear with dresses and two-pieces that will work for a night out.

Maya’s look is effortless, whether it’s a hoodie and trousers or slip dress and denim jacket – she makes everything work because it’s simple.

Keep up the good work Maya, you’re great.


CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT… Summer dressing

Boys and girls, I know it’s hot outside but please for the love of God put it away.

Have you ever noticed when you’re on holiday sightseeing or just off to buy some souvenirs everyone has clothes on?

Probably not because why wouldn’t they have them on? But in the UK when temperatures rise men and women strip off.

I know it’s hot – trust me I have three fans going in my house 24-7 – but that doesn’t mean we want to see that much of you. There are rules when it comes to flesh-flashing and too much is strictly forbidden.

There are so many lovely things you can buy that keep you cool while maintaining your dignity and not offending others.
So put it away and get down to the high street to pick these breathable buys…

  • Culotte-suit, £13, Primark  – buy now

  • Skirt, £39.50, Marks and Spencer – buy now

  • Top, £29, Monsoon – buy now

IN MY BASKET

With England now out of the World Cup there’s nothing better to beat the blues than with a spot of retail therapy.

This week brands have been dropping new pieces, thankfully so you don’t have to battle the sale racks or floors, and they’re not into autumn/winter mode yet.

I’ve got these five pieces saved in my basket to help lift my mood after the nation’s loss, plus they’re perfect buys for now and when the temperature inevitably drops.

  • Bag, £29.99, New Look – buy now

  • Red top, £35, Topshop – buy now

  • Dress, £45, Dorothy Perkins – buy now

  • Trousers, £29.99, Zara – buy now

  • Shoes, £65, Marks & Spencer – buy now
