  • SEE: Gwyneth Paltrow models her wardrobe tips for the new season

    Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed her top style tips for the new season, picking key SS’09 pieces in the latest edition of her weekly Goop newsletter.

    Proving she isn’t all about the designer names, the actress gives an insight into her much-coveted wardrobe, and though there are plenty of labels (Isabel Marant, Burberry and Roksanda Ilincic to name a few), it is Topshop that features predominantly throughout.

    So what does the fashionable Ms Paltrow have in store for spring? Naming her five key trends, the actress first explains, ‘I’m going back to my day job this spring, and I am confronted with a few wardrobe issues.’

    Explaining her spring style mantra, she adds, ‘I am going to stick with the classics and update a few simple pieces that are easy to wear.’

    First up and it is trench coats that earn top spot, as ‘a staple that will always remain in your closet.’

    Modelling a Topshop version, Paltrow teams the design with distressed jeans and ballet pumps (‘perfect for the morning school run,’ she raves), and also dressed up with a Burberry dusky pink dress.

    Her second tip is a nautical stripe top (she picks one by St James), and in at third comes ethnic-style dresses by Isabel Marant, which she chooses for being ‘easy to wear as they have their own thing going on and don’t need accessorising or further thought.’

    Onto number four and Paltrow names slouchy trousers and gladiator flats, and then concludes with the most fashion forward nod – a jumpsuit.  

    And though the email may be all about the new, Paltrow also reveals that she’s had ‘a big cathartic spring clearout,’ the result of which is a huge eBay sale of her clothing, to raise funds for the Robin Hood Foundation charity.

    Gwynnie has put up a vast selection of pieces, including Chanel bags, a Michael Kors jumpsuit, and, of course, some signature platform heels, including designs by Roger Vivier and Burberry.
