Tome Shirt, Insider Crop Step Fray jeans by Mother, Boots by Ego Shoes 

If you have a more minimal aesthetic then a statement piece takes on a different definition. It doesn’t shout but speaks confidently. The piece is on trend and has a edge, whether in terms of design or quality.

The outfit I’m wearing is a timeless combination- white shirt, blue jeans, black ankle boots. However ever single piece has a twist which makes this outfit special

This tome white shirt is a blogger favourite and for good reason.  The open back falls beautifully and is just ridiculously photogenic.

Blue jeans have been given an update with an asymmetric raw hem. If you are deft with a pair of scissors why not give life to an old pair of jeans by giving them a chop?

And the perspex heel on this ankle boot is just fun and a bit futuristic.

Paying attention to the little details can result in a big statement in your outfit.

The New Denim

Insider Crop Step Fray Jeans by Mother, Chosen by Tuchuzy camisole, Asos Belt, Dylan Kain Bag, Vialis shoes from Shoe I Am

Skinny, boyfriend , distressed- these jeans have been solid staples for a number of seasons. However if you’re looking for a new pair of jeans, it’s time to bypass these styles and upgrade your denim game.

Refresh your wardrobe with a new shape- think wide legs, cropped flares or full length flares in a modern fit, or focus on a raw hem.

The raw, fringed hem has been haunting me for months and I finally found the perfect incarnation with the Insider Crop Step Fray by Mother Denim.  There are so many subtle details that I love, the asymmetric raw hem that will only look better with wear and tear, the cropped length, slight kicked flare, high waist, and classic dark blue wash.  In terms of fit, these jeans fit true to size and are super comfortable thanks to the inclusion of elastane in the fabric.

So if you’ve been living in skinny jeans for the past few years, go beyond your style comfort zone and look at investing in a new denim style.

Organic by John Patrick Slip Dress, Jac + Jack Tee, Kara backpack, Converse sneakers 

So you’ve probably been seeing slip dresses appearing in shops and invading your instagram feed. Here are 3 reasons why you need to join the slip dress revival:

  1. It’s the perfect layering piece and really easy to style- It can be worn on its own, layered over a t shirt, over trousers, or under a sheer dress.
  2. A slip dress will extend your wardrobe and transition easily from Summer to Winter and from day to night. I’m envisaging this with an oversized cardigan for winter- easy and effortless.
  3. It’s timeless.  Whilst currently being a trendy piece and a nod to the 90s trend, it’s also an item that will last the test of time.

Have I convinced you? Will you be adding a slip dress to your wardrobe?
