Summer is offish here, Shopcaders and you know what that means… it’s time for our July #StyleBattle™ to launch!

Last month’s winners, @styleskittle and @alexandertuffley1 took part in a VIP photo shoot at Shopcade HQ, to be be featured in WEARECOLLISION’s September Issue, and were given tickets to Wireless to enjoy some festi-fun in the sun!

For July, however we are going ALL out. We are stepping up our game and looking for only the most fierce and fabulous fashionistas to become the faces of July.

The winners will be featured all across our social media as the official faces of Shopcade, take part in their very own fashion photoshoot with celeb stylist Fabienne Hebrard, have their make-up done by the pros at Illamasqua, plus have their bouffant expertly quaffed by the artistic team at Rush Hair.

Phew! If that wasn’t enough, the winners will also be walking away with goody bags piled high with pieces from Villain, FYT & CO and more!

So, what do you need to do to win this awesome prize? Well, it’s pretty darn simple. In a nutshell, we want you to fill our app with your top looks on a daily basis!

There are a few rules you need to abide by however; it needs to be a full length look (no close ups of your chin or anything weird) and you MUST use the hashtag #stylebattle to qualify. For the full T&C’s check them out here.

Other than that, go mad! We want to see you all over our app 😉 Here’s the Style Council you need to impress this time around…
