Style Tips from the week's Best Dressed

FG10 gazes through the week's Best Dressed selections to give you the juice of some fresh styling tips!!

Channel your boyish side
Clemence Poesy ticks the box between androgynous dressing and unflattering boyish attire just perfectly. Trench coat, bowler and brogues in tow, bring your locks over your shoulders to accentuate the feminine side of your look.

Get sporty
When Diane Kruger visited the French Open Tennis Tournament at Roland Garros, she took the opportunity to embrace the athletic spirit set to rampage the high street with the coming of the Olympics. Look out for luxe sportswear with feminine lines and add converse for an old-school, classic touch.

Time for trousers
Forget the image of trouser suits as a cover-up manoeuvre for office ladies not so fond of their legs. Designers have been pursuing somewhat of a love affair with the masculine tailoring option and fashionistas, like Hanneli Mustaparta , are (pardon the pun) following suit. The neon pink colouring, statement lapels and side panels on the ensemble are merely plus points.

Convert eveningwear to daywear
Looking sartorially insouciant, Kate Bosworth proves that dapper dresses don't have to be banished to nighttime soirées. Team your frock with ankle boots, shades and an apathetic attitude, for ultimate style points.

Go heavy on the footwear
High-top wedge trainers and flatform boots are akin to catnip among the fashion pack this season. Forget dainty summer sandals, the British downpour requires a sturdy lace - or Velcro - up. Karolina Kurkova looks smug in the sunshine in her black booties, proving that the season can have a dark side too.

Bare some skin
Crop tops are no longer exclusive to cheer leaders, belly dancers or teens sporting newly pierced midriffs. Seen on the likes of models at the Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Pucci and Preen spring/summer shows, models oozed class while flaunting a little extra torso. Team with a high-waist, A-line skirt, like Karen Elson, for true elegant exposure.

Learn to travel lightly
The burden of the bulky 'It' bag is temporarily over, with the arrival of a new, compact carry case on the block. Essentially a wallet-sized holdall on a strap, the mini bag is set to take the shoulders of the fashion pack by storm. Solange Knowles leads the way with her monochrome cutie.

Embrace festival chic
The boho look has a lot of potential for fashion faux pas. Even Sienna Miller may have worn one gladiator belt too many. Done well though bohemian chic can look whimsical and fashion-forward at the same time. Try a flowing skirt, pumps and a smattering of gold jewellery, like style maven Olivia Palermo , for the upcoming festival season.

Reveal your crowning glory
Floral crowns and headbands have been having a bit of a moment, ever since Bora Asku and Dolce & Gabbana decked out their spring/summer catwalk models with headwear of the finest flora and fauna. Look to Poppy Delevingne for natural, leafy inspiration in the garland department.

Perfect pleats
Sarah Jessica Parker spruces up a khaki tank top with some dark, sharp knife pleats. Sashay along in a skirt that has a bit more sway than its pencil and mini companions. And add a pop of colour, like SJP, for good measure.
