Jool’s Oliver & her girls edit the collection…

We are thrilled to have Jools Oliver and her 3 girls as ilovegorgeous fans. As a super stylish mum of 4 we thought who better to do a summer holiday edit, so together they’ve compiled a little selection of their favourites – from the perfect bikini to a great summer party dress.

COLOUR POP – Rainbow nails, how-to…

You’re going to a party, you’ve found the perfect outfit (do we need to tell you that COLOUR-BLOCKING is SO on trend right now?!), you’ve followed our hair how-to, all you need now is coloured nails to match & you are all set! We love Little BU’s range of peel-off or wash off nail polishes (so ingenious, wish we’d thought of that!), & a great idea is using different colours on each nail, we’ve suggested a rainbow over colours but it works equally as well with just 2 or 3 colours – & the best part – you can peel it off & start all over again! Follow our guide below – simple! Don’t forget to enter our competition with Little BU, see post for more details.


The Sophie Mary in coral is an ILG favourite – simple, cool & colourful this is a great dress for daytime wear or for summer parties, add some bold accessories & a pair of Leather Mary Jane’s in Coral to finish the look (oh & if its a bit on the chilly side you may want to invest in the fabulous dip-dye Fade Away Cardi in pink).

COLOUR POP! Coloured hair how-to…

Coloured hair is a great way to dress up for a party and is a fun thing to do with family & friends – experiment with colour, plaiting, crimping, ponytails… the list is endless! Just remember not to heat synthetic hair! We used coloured hair on our Summer shoot and we LOVED the effect, it worked so well with our super bright ‘COLOUR POP’ collection. So here’s a few ideas for cool ways to play with adding in a POP of colour…
