Racy lacy – Yes or no?

Love them or loathe them, designers are trying to make gladiator sandals happen (again). From plain straight-up leather to wrap around, from flats to high heels there’s a multitude of styles to choose from.

Chloe, Miu Miu and Valentino walked them down the runways at Paris Fashion Week and now they’re rolling into a high-street near you with Mango, Topshop and Next embracing the greek goddess vibes.

Perfectly paired with a boho dress goes without saying but streetstylers have been mixing it up with these sandals and wearing them layered over denim shorts, side spilt maxis and printed shifts.

Will you go for some knee-grazing gladiators this summer?

Crop it like it’s hot

Forget your mom jeans and your skinnies because the new denim silhouette of the season is the cropped wide-leg. A shorter variety of the flare it’s become the favourite denim shape for the fash-pack, including Alexa, so it’s obviously going to be massive. And before you sweat about what to footwear to wear with, see below for some inspo, but they look strangely good with a pair of ankle boots. Or if you want to add a more ladylike feel go for miles or courts. 7778-Le-21eme-Adam-Katz-Sinding-Julia-Sarr-Jamois-Milan-Fashion-Week-Spring-Summer-2015_AKS2747

Ways to wear a skinny scarf

Whether worn loose, wrapped around your neck or secured into a single knot, allow the lengths of your skinny scarf to flow freely over a sheer silk blouse, blazer, leather jacket or a retro mini dress. Who knew a simple accessory could add so much to an outfit? And before you think this just works for day – take a style cue, or two, from Alexa and wear it for evening in place of a statement necklace.

Shop the Shoot

From loud and proud colour combos, to super saturated hues and geometric pieces, my latest shoot for Image Magazine (which has just come of shelves) was all about brightening up spring. My inspiration for the shoot came straight of the runways most notably Peter Pilotto and Roksanda bringing the colour-block-boom back.

Sweet-as arm candy

From bold colours, slogans, box clutches and embellished works of art, look-at-me clutches ruled the streets at London and New Year fashion weeks this year. Functional but hella fun, I’m a big of the quirkier arm candy variety – they just add a layer of unexpectedness to a more simple outfit. See below for major inspo and where to get your mitts on the cutest clutches around.

Head in the clouds

A fashion trend that’s above and beyond, if you missed out on the Kenzo cloud print a couple of seasons ago – no fear the pretty print is back again. The obvious cloud colour combo is soft blue and white but if that’s too gentle a palette for you look to stormy skies with hints of black and navy. For some uplifting inspo and where to get your hands on some fluffy cloud fashion scroll down!

All Khaki Errythang

We all know khaki is big for spring, right? There’s been plenty of blog posts and style reports on it already. But what I’m heralding for spring is wearing khaki head-to-toe. Mix luxe layers and different shades of the green stuff to add a super fresh and utility-chic vibe to your wardrobe. See below for some inspo.

Burgundy and Khaki = cool colour combo.

Can’t hack khaki head-to-toe? Add a hint of black for edge.
