Gone are the days when dungarees were synonymous with workmen and decorators. Now, they can be teamed with sneakers and a cotton tee for an ultra cool casual look, or add heeled pumps and a cropped top or collared blouse to dress them up for the evening. Choose light or dark denim, distressed or clean finishes, over-sized or skinny fits, the choices are vast, but all are truly versatile.
We all know that accessories can be key to completing an outfit successfully. Let’s look forward to Spring and add some floral touches to our closet. Shoulder bags, backpacks, totes or clutches, with bright floral prints, depicting some gorgeous flowers in feel good hues. These are certain to cheer us up during these cooler winter months and will undoubtedly make us stand out.
Add pops of Bauhaus print, as seen on numerous catwalks last year, with a geometric scarf. Choose from cozy knits, soft silk or classic cotton varieties, in monochrome or brightly colored hues and liven up your casual attire, or add more pazazz to your glamorous evening look.
Tartan has been the ‘in’ print for sometime now and it’s still going strong. If you haven’t already jumped on board with this Scottish trend, now’s the time to do it, with a pair of effortlessly cool tartan pants. Go for bold or more subtle tartan prints in hues of blue/green, monochrome or the more obvious tartan shade of red. Team them with a vintage tee and red lips for an all out punk vibe.
Backpacks seem to be the ‘go to’ bag at the moment. As well as being ultra stylish (and some of the luxe versions that are around at the moment are just that) they are also super functional. Go big, go small, whatever your choice, be sure to let a backpack carry you through the day or night.
