Along with wearing clothes with an actual waistband, it's one of the first steps in helping us to feel more pulled together. And our new-found freedom has got us feeling a bit more experimental.
So what's hot? Anything and everything – the more colourful, the better quite frankly. As an introduction: gradient nails are still a smash hit (choosing one shade like pink and taking it from rose to raspberry across your fingertips).
