In the financial industry, insider trading is obviously a punishable offense, but thankfully we're worlds away from Wall Street and can divulge our best high-profile fashion tips with impunity! Whether that means providing access to Irina Lazareau's androgynous style, letting you in on how to wear a new hemline à la Alexa Chung, or publicly sharing the clog-wearing choices of it-girls like Jen Brill, we're thrilled to take the floor and offer up our full net worth of sartorial-minded insights. After all, the whole point of our being significant shareholders of top-notch tips is surely to impart them to our equally trend-invested readers! So without further ado, we'll let today's stylesetters take the floor as we bring you another day of open exchange with our June installment of WWW: Styling Tips!
Tip #1: Try a simple shape in a vivid print.
While a simple shift dress will always be staple cocktail attire, upgrading that understated piece with an eye-catching print is a must-try for summer. The perennially polished Chanel Iman showed us how to wear the paired-down silhouette when she chose Mulberry's Margaret Dress ($1195, 888.418.8400) in Loopy Leopard Print Purple Red to attend a book launch party hosted by Mulberry in May. Luckily, if you fancy Iman's of-the-moment frock, there are many equally posh picks on the market! We like Sonia by Sonia Rykiel's Oversized Leopard Print Dress ($395) for a looser fit or Twenty8Twelve's Corbusier Dress ($429) and Diane von Furstenberg's Bec Dress ($365) if you're looking for a more form-fitted version.

Tip #2: Mix a sheer top with a modest skirt.
While micro minis and knee-length frocks will always have a place in our wardrobes, one of the biggest trends on the F/W 10 runways was the dramatic descent in hemlines. Seen at influential houses like Prada, Fendi, and Marc Jacobs, amongst others, the new skirt shape has a belled silhouette and skims the mid-calf. While such excess fabric can be just as intimidating as a mini to pull off
