Nothing beats a bit of red lipstick to make you feel in charge of your life and pretty damn unstoppable – but it can’t just be me who finds wearing red lipstick in summer really really hard, right?

I remember getting a pair of wide leg pants more than 5 years ago – a staple in any girl’s new work wardrobe. They were light grey, high-waist (of course) and my favourite thing to chuck on. The only issue? I don’t think I was wearing them right.
