If you haven't yet sat down in front of Queer Eye to hoot, holler and dab your eyes through eight hours of the most joyful TV 2018 has produced, well, you're lucky it's still on Netflix. 

For the uninitiated few: each episode sees a team of ridiculously handsome and charming homosexual men, each with special powers (grooming! clothes! making guacamole!) whirl into the life of a hapless but bighearted every John whose self-esteem, daily habits, and dress sense are all in need of a drastic makeover. It's reality TV at its least cynical—a show that finds time to address issues like homophobia, police violence, and religious tension between all the life-affirming high fives—and it's great.

One of the 'Fab Five'—and the only Brit in the crew—is stylist Tan France, whose role it is to make a beeline for each guy's wardrobe, throw out the boot cut jeans and frayed plaid before gently educating him in the benefits of wearing nice shoes and clothes that actually fit properly. 

As well as being a TV sensation, Queer Eye has turned its five presenters into social media stars, with each of them picking up half a million or so followers on Instagram—a platform Tan uses to demonstrate the kind of considered (but eminently achievable) casual style he advocates in the show. 

So, while appearing on Queer Eye for several thousand pounds of free interior decorating a life-changing inner journey may not be an option for everyone, you can still be inspired by France to improve your spring/summer wardrobe. Step one: keep those trainers white my friend...
