fashion: Moss code; HOW STARS LIKE KATE INSPIRE OUR WARDROBES.

DESIGNERS may dictate trends for the fashion season ahead, but often it's celebrities who set the style agenda. Take Kate Moss and our won't-goaway obsession with waistcoats, Sienna Miller getting a-head in natty bowler hats, and Agyness Deyn stepping out in Dr Martens boots.

But forget the celebrity stylist and designer labels, you can get their looks at a snip of the price. We take a peek at how fashionistas have dressed this summer...

VIVA VINTAGE

TV Presenter Alexa Chung describes her wardrobe as "granny meets sailor". She mixes vintage pieces with designer classics and adds a quirky hat, belt or pair of shoes. Key details include retro style top or short dress, slouchy cardigan, shoulder bag and flat pumps.
