  • Opt for a light, fluffy blouse instead of your average t-shirt or tank top – even though it is still light and summery, it will still protect you from not-so-pleasant breezes. If it is too windy, grab a cardigan!


  • Grab a pair of flats that can protect your feet from unpleasant showers! Loafers are in trend at the moment, so why not give ’em a try?

  • If the weather is still warm enough for you to wear skirts, go for it! Otherwise, why not try leggings?

  • Maybe add a scarf in case it gets chilly?

British Celebrity Spotlight | Kate Moss

Kate Moss (born 16 January 1974) is an English model who is known for her waifish figure and popularising the heroin chic look in the 1990s. She is also known for her controversial private life, high profile relationships, party lifestyle, and drug use. Moss changed the look of modelling and started a global debate on eating disorders, and her role in size zero fashion. In 2007, she came 2nd on the Forbes top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $9 million in one year.

Moss ushered in the heroin chic look in 1993(which prompted much speculation over her weight) with a highly publicised campaign for Calvin Klein. Her depiction in photographs also drew criticism from then-President of the United States Bill Clinton, who spoke out against the growing heroin chic trend.When questioned about her weight, Moss commented, “It was just the time. It was a swing from more buxom girls like Cindy Crawford and people were shocked to see what they called a ‘waif’. What can you say? How many times can you say ‘I’m not anorexic’?”

In addition to being known for her modelling work, Kate Moss is also an international fashion icon. She has garnered many awards for her style, including the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s fashion influence award and a place on the Vanity Fair international best-dressed list. In the early part of the 21st century, she was, together with actress Sienna Miller, one of the main proponents of boho-chic. She appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s September 2006 style issue. In recent years, she has popularised denim cutoff shorts, Ugg boots, ballet flats, Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boots, skinny jeans, waistcoat, Alexander McQueen’s skull scarf, Louis Vuitton’s Sprouse Leopard Cashmere Scarf, and the Balenciaga handbag.
