The summer rolls on and the stars continue to shine. This summer has seen so many great celebrity looks, ranging from beachy, sunsoaked styles to elegant dresses worn by actresses, TV celebrities and the stars of our favourite reality shows.
But today’s post is not just about holidays and pretty frocks. Celebrities from Nicole Scherzinger to Sarah Harding have been rocking some seriously beautiful jewellery from designers Katie Rowland and Zara Taylor London, whilst the lovely Laura Whitmore looks seriously fierce in an ear cuff from High Street brand Accessorize that costs just £8.
Here are some of the key looks and trends from some super stylish celebrities from this summer, many of which have been plucked from the High Street.
Sarah Harding loves Mya Blue Beach and Zatchels
Girls Aloud star Sarah popped into the offices of CiCi PR and selected some of her favourite designs from CiCi clients Mya Blue Luxe and Zatchels. The Manhattan kaftan from Mya Blue Luxe is already a celebrity favourite, with the lovely Georgia Horsley, soon to be Mrs Danny McFly, another fan of this exquisite piece.

Sarah also selected a stunning leather duffel bag in tangerine from hot brand Zatchels. Sarah is planning a trip to LA very soon, and this bag is certainly a perfect airport bag, wear it on your back and leave your hands free for browsing in the Tax Free shopping.

Sarah Harding wears Zara Taylor London
A few days later Sarah was photographed wearing a striking piece from Zara Taylor London. This cross design is a great look over a plain, simple shaped dress, adding a rock chick edge which Sarah complimented with chunky shoe-boots and Debbie Harry- esque hair.

Nicole Scherzinger wears Katie Rowland
I fell in love with Katie Rowland’s jewel designs at a press event earlier this year, so it was lovely to see them worn so publicly by X Factor judge and all-round Goddess Nicole Scherzinger. Delicate and pretty, the necklace is a piece you could easily wear every day, whilst the ring is an absolute showstopper.

Frankie Essex wears Love
Frankie Essex made a great choice of dress for her recent publicity photographs for her new range of hair extensions. This lace effect, a-line dress from In Love with Fashion has a really pretty feel. I would love to see Frankie grunge this up a little with black opaques once the temperatures start to fall.

Carrie Bradshaw style at Boden
This is not really a celebrity spot, but when I saw this great new dress from Boden’s Autumn and Winter range, I couldn’t help but think of ‘An American Girl in Paris’ and Carrie Bradshaw. Maybe Boden were thinking along the same lines, hence the very Parisian name Amelie…?

Laura Whitmore in Accessorize
Laura Whitmore always impresses with her style choices, and in her latest magazine shoot for Cosmopolitan, she shows the power of great accessories. The petal ear cuff is the standout piece, a touch of glamorous ‘bling’ that dresses up even the most tough and masculine of outfits.
This earcuff is not currently available online, but they do have a couple of beauties in stock to help you get a similar sort of look.

Paula Patton wears French Connection
The beautiful actress Paula Patton (so good in Deja Vu) is not necessarily the sort of actress you imagine wearing High Street pieces, but that is exactly what she did on Chelsea Lately, when she opted for a dress from French Connection.

Kate Middleton’s Max Mara Coat – back in stock and renamed
A sell out last time around, the middle of summer may not seem the best time to be thinking about your Winter coat, but as this one has been worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, it may not actually stick around for long. The Max Mara Studio belted cashmere coat has been cleverly renamed(what else?) ‘Kate’ and is a real classic piece of luxury. If you can afford it, it is worth the investment.

Sam Faiers in Celeb Boutique
Celeb Boutique is very quickly becoming another cult brand that is just loved by celebrities. Sam Faiers is the latest to wear its pieces, choosing a hot pink bandage style crop top for a recent holiday with her girlfriends.

Samantha Barks wears Reiss
Samantha Barks is a rising style star, one who always seems to be occasion appropriate and totally immaculate. I loved her recent choice of the Reiss fit and flare dress, which she teamed with colour pop heels for maximum effect.

Ruth Langsford wears Phase Eight
And finally, we have television presenter Ruth Langsford, who recently chose a wonderfully bright printed dress from Phase Eight for presenting ‘This Morning’. The dress, with its jewel print, is just gorgeous, and is still available in a few sizes.
