Bleached out: summer colours take a beating

However hesitant the sun may be about sharing its rays with the good folk of Britain, with a little imagination you can step right into summer by wearing the latest sun-bleached, faded colours and prints. Imagine the pink suggested by the red heart on an IheartNY white T-shirt seen inside-out, and you have the shade. Pink, ironically, has a recent association with hooligan chav-dom in the UK, but faded back to barely-there, fleshy pinkness it loses it’s Casual associations and becomes something more nostalgic.

ASOS are big on faded prints and colours this summer, from the faded floral of these shorts, to the bleached out brick tones of their chino shorts. Meanwhile, ever colour-conscious American Apparel‘s super-pale pink V-necked T-shirt is an old favourite that always charms.

Biotherm Homme Power Bronze Tinted Moisturiser

If you’re a man, there’s only one thing worse than wearing make-up – and that’s being caught wearing make-up. So it was with extreme caution that I approached Biotherm Homme’s Power Bronze tinted moisturiser. This moisturiser has a hint of bronzer in it which promises a natural healthy look  – so it’s not going to make you change race or anything. It’s also a gel, which mean that it goes on easily and evenly so you don’t get any tell-tale streaks.

I must say, it does deliver on its promises. It was very easy to apply and gave a very subtle effect – more of a healthy glow than a tan. If you’re a pale Anglo-Saxon like myself, it’s a good way of fighting that ghostly winter pallor without making you look like a drag queen.
