This season you should be prepared to show some skin. Forget legs, decolletage or backs, because this Summer designers have declared that the midriff is this errogenous zone du jour. We like that it's a somewhat unexpected body part to show-off, and when worn the right way a flash of bare waist can look sexy in a youthful and uncontrived way. Avoid '80s flashbacks by keeping things grown up; think sophisticated colourways, tailored shapes and quality fabrications. Be careful with what you team your belly-baring topper with, as a too-tight skirt or ill-fitting pant can change the entire look. We've done a little fashion maths so that you'll have the styling formula on hand to pull off this tricky trend. Get schooled inside . . .
