With the weather on Monday meant to be a hot one, you’ll need to be sensible about what you wear.

Dress so you’ll be comfortable, but also not too exposed to the sun – or if you simply have to flash the flesh, spf is your bff.

Choose shoes wisely

Look, we know you want to look great for the ‘gram.

But over a million people are expected to dance their way through Notting Hill Carnival.

Open toes and exposed feet shouldn’t even be considered. Slip on a pair of trainers and take to the streets with confidence (and without blisters).
