Denim Dungarees

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.

Tartan Trousers

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.
