And it doesn't have to cost a fortune.

Brooke Blurton may be looking for love on The Bachelorette Australia, but her status as a style icon has already won our hearts.
The pint-sized TV star has been flexing her fashion muscles on the show, donning custom suits and extravagant dresses at every cocktail party.
"I have complete say on what I wear and want to wear," Brooke told Now To Love of her on-screen style.
"Paul, who is my friend and now my stylist, actually came over to be a part of The Bachelorette with me this season. He put a lot of effort into making me feel confident in what I wore every day."

But when she's not gracing our TV screens, Brooke is actually the queen of casual chic summer style.
Don't believe us? Just take one peek at her Instagram and you'll see the 26-year-old rocking all of this season's hottest trends.
From her obsession with neutrals (brown is the new black, everyone), to her elevated basics and oh-so-natural beauty looks, we simply can't get enough of Brooke's style.
Keep reading to see how you can recreate her best looks as we embrace hot girl summer.

Elevated basics are your new best friend

The coronavirus pandemic forced us all to spend weeks and months locked inside in our tracksuits and activewear.
Now that we're back to "normal", many of us want to hold on to the more casual styles we embraced in lockdown.
That's where one of Brooke's favourite style staples comes in: the elevated basic.

Elevated basics are essentially just simply pieces that have been made a little bit special - think pieces with a unique design or made from a more luxe fabric.
You can also create elevated basic outfits by pairing staples like a t-shirt and pants with one more elevated piece, like the chic corset Brooke styled in the photo above.
The appeal of elevated basics is that they're easy to style, go with just about everything and can make a comfy, casual outfit look effortlessly chic.

Brown really is the new black

You may be surprised to hear that brown is shaping up to be the hottest colour of the summer.
Chocolate hues have infiltrated even the most luxe fashion labels, with the trendy new tone quickly filtering down to the brands we all shop and love.
Brooke has happily jumped on the trend, which perfectly compliments her own brown skintone.

Expect to see plenty of brown dresses, skirts, pants and tops out and about as the weather heats up.
But we're obsessed with Brooke's take on the shade, opting for a brown bikini as she embraces the heat.
There's nothing Aussies love more than cute swimwear, so take a leaf out of Brooke's book and inject a bit of brown into your beach outfits this summer.

Making masculine styles work

Brooke has never been afraid to embrace a more "masculine" ensemble, just take a look at some of her suits on the Bachelorette.
The pint-sized star has proven time and again that women don't have to be afraid of boxy, tailored pieces many people still reserve for men.
From oversize blazers, to this chic little shorts suit, Brooke is living proof that anyone can pull off a masculine style with confidence.
And while it can be easy to think of suits and blazers as winter styles, they're totally here to stay as the weather warms up.
Embrace a shorts suit like Brooke's as you return to the office, then pair it with slip-on heels for Friday drinks.
Monochrome is another hot trend this summer, so pair your tailored sets with tops of the same shade for the ultimate on-trend ensemble.

Summer is all about natural beauty

There's no denying Brooke looks phenomenal in a bold red lip, but she's also a huge lover of a natural beuaty look.
As the weather heats up and we all emerge from lockdown, it's the perfect time to embrace a more relaxed beauty routine.
Ditch the heavy foundation, thick concealer and false lashes and focus on dewy, barely-there products to enhance your natural radiance.

You can recreate Brooke's effortless "no makeup" look above with BB cream, easy brow products and a sunkissed swipe of cream blush.
Simply prep your skin with moisturiser and apply your favourite BB cream, using concealer to spot-conceal any blemishes you'd like to disguise.
Then pat some cream blush onto the apples of your cheeks and blend up across your cheekbones.
Finish off the look by filling in your brows - or just using a gel if yours are naturally full - and applying a lick of mascara.
