Welcome to our fabulous fashionistas' weekly blog! Every week our stylists will bring you steals, deals and heels.

If you're looking for a bargain, wondering what to wear out tonight or want to know about the latest high street drops before everyone else does, this is the blog to follow! Shhh don't tell everyone!

Everyone knows pastels are a major summer trend each year but this season it's all about blue!

In the Reveal office powder-blue is our favourite hue. We've been lusting after the shade since Lupita Nyong'o wore her dreamy #NairobiBlue Prada gown to the Oscars.

Everyone from the Duchess of Cambridge to the TOWIE girls have been spotted sporting the cool hue. True Blood's Anna Paquin has even dyed her hair the colour of the moment!

Essex girl Lauren Pope teamed her powder-blue full skirt with cute frilly socks and sandals whilst Hollywood star Lupita kept accessories minimal in her elegant Elizabeth Taylor inspired couture gown.

Inspired by the hue we sent our fashion intern Sarah-Rose to preview Primark's AW14 collection and style up a look featuring the colour of the moment, but keeping the look on a budget.

Sarah-Rose said: "This powder blue skater skirt has such a luxe texture and a super flattering fit! I dressed it up with a beautiful bird print neoprene and lace tee, also from Primark, and nude flatforms. Both pieces are only £10 each and complement each other beautifully. I think the skirt makes such a good day-to-night piece as you can style either as I have for the office, or team with a pair of heels for dinner with friends.

"I accessorised my look with my favourite metallic silver bag from Marks and Spencer that hasn't left my shoulder all summer and a mixture of minimal gold and silver jewellery. I recommend teaming silver and blue together to enhance your post-holiday tan!"
