    June 7, 2017

    Forget what you thought you knew about denim, as a key trend on the SS17 runway, denim is no longer just about jeans but is a fashion must-have. With fashion houses like Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger and Givenchy reworking the classic style, it got us thinking how we could update our collection.

    Gone are the days where denim was only associated with jeans, this new revival shows our wardrobe favourite evolving with dresses, skirt and embroidered shirts.

    Revamp your spring florals

    Miranda Priestly may not care for florals, but they made an impact on runways and are here to stay. With everyone from Alexa Chung to Oliva Palermo sporting this look, it’s not hard to see why it’s a hit.
