Cannes may be over for another year (dry those crying eyes and keep it together red carpet fans), but the memory of all those amazing dresses will linger a while longer.

Sure, the Cannes fashion parade may be another league of dressing, but there are trends we can all take from the film premieres and apply to our normal person lives.

1. Matchy-matchy handbags

We can not shout it from the roof tops louder, it is time to get matchy-matchy with your handbags.

From matching your bag to your nails like Blake Lively here, to matching shoes and dress prints for AW14, co-ordinating your clutch is the future.

2. Embrace yellow

Yellow dresses have been slowly creeping up on us as the summer approaches, but Cannes has confirmed the trend has fully arrived.

From Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Uma Thurman, the striking yellow dress is a bold statement for fashion forward folks.

If you can't quite embrace the full-on yellow dress, try to just a yellow tee or bringing the hue out in your accessorises this summer.

3. Swan-like dresses

Many celebs wore Chanel couture at Cannes, and all had a delicate white sparkly effect to them. From Blake Lively to Chloe Moretz, we're dubbing it the swan fashion trend.

Not to mention the stunning feather dresses from the likes of Freida Pinto in Michael Kors. Translate the trend into your summer dresses with sandals - perfect for summer holidays.

4. Tees and skirts

Take a cue from Amber Heard and team a low key tee with a more evening wear skirt for daytime chic.

5. Big big earrings

Big earrings are back people. It may be the red carpet, but still, giant danglers were everywhere.

Translate this trend to your daily life by ditching other accessorises and wearing big earrings with a simple tee and jeans.

6. Side swept hair

As seen on the edgier of Cannes visitors, Cara Delevingne and Amber Heard were sporting 80s style side swept-hair. An easy look to replicate this summer.

7. Think about texture

It is not all about bold colours and clashing prints. Many celebs opted for textured dresses, playing with beading, feathers, ruffles and ribbons.

8. Silver screen styling

Make like Blake Lively this summer and try some old school Hollywood glamour.

Sure, it might be a bit much for the office, but at that summer wedding, try taking some inspiration from 1930s silver screen icons for your hair and makeup.

9. Luxe Lounge wear

Kristen Stewart took lounge wear to a new luxe level in sparkly Chanel on the Cannes red carpet.

A great summer in the city look, either for the day with sandals and sunnies, or throw in some killer heels and a statement lip for nights on the town.

10. Monochrome

Yellow and hot pink were features of Cannes, but keeping it simple with striking black and white was also a style focus.

From Kendall Jenner, Blake Lively to Audrey Tatou, black and white for summer is here.
