Something else you should know…

And the accessories… oh, don’t get us started! Have you seen the bags? We’re talking designer, love it to bits, take it everywhere bags. And easy fashion fix, affordable bags.

You see, right now we’re doing Winter and Spring, because there’s no stopping fashion, not even the weather can stop you from looking fabulous!
Well you can’t blame us for getting excited! There’s a lot going on, a lot to tell you about and hey – London Fashion Week starts on Friday so there’s much more to come!
If there’s one trend you’ll see season after season, one purchase you’ll wear again and again, it has to be the printed tee! They’re just so versatile. Forget the fact that you can get so many different styles – from legs to cartoon characters, graphic prints to kooky characters – or the vast array of colours you’ll have to choose from. And think instead about all the places you can wear them, the looks you can create…
Never say never!
Wear them to work under a blazer, out on a night with a glitzy skirt or on the weekend with a trusty pair of jeans – there’s just no stopping you! And the occasions you can think of right now, off the top of your head, well they’ll never compare to the actual opportunities you’ll have to wear a printed tee once you’ve got it in your wardrobe!
The latest looks!
Let’s start with Parisian, because we’re just loving it right now. Go for sophisticated prints, like our Lace Print Top. It’s easy luxe, unstated glamour that won’t move past casual unless you want it to. And don’t forget our Longline Jersey Top. This one sits on the fence, bordering the season’s must-have Parisian style but hinting towards the ever-fashionable Rock-chic too! Which leads us nicely onto our Wing Print T-Shirt – the ultimate rock ‘n roller tee! Outdone only by the cartoon king in this Mickey Print Top – the Cute and Quirky take on this astoundingly versatile trend!
Right, that’s enough of the bad weather. It’s time to start thinking about warmer climes, whether that’s abroad or right here at home, where they keep promising that a cold Winter means a hot Summer (fingers crossed)! And what’s the first thing you need when the weather starts to turn? Well a gorgeous Spring/Summer Wardrobe of course…
New this season!
The Spring/Summer catwalks are done and dusted, leaving you to translate all the gorgeous, must-have trends into a personal style that works in the real world.
