The Super Cardigan

For a few seasons the cardigan has been overlooked by sweatshirts and leather jackets but now they are back in all shapes and sizes. But it’s the coatigan that is reaching new lengths this season from knee length to midi duster like hemlines. Oversized cardigans are such a great versatile look you would be crazy not to try it.

There is nothing like an oversized cardiagan or a coatigan to keep you warm.   A cardigan is a style you throw on without much thought, a go to when the weather turns for the worst.   If you haven’t already got one a long oversized cardigan is the ideal must have for your wardrobe this Autumn.

 Spring 2017 is the season of ‘The Denim’: Denim is having one of its moments in time and a new pair of jeans is one of the easiest ways to upgrade your wardrobe.   Be prepared as we are not talking stretchy skinny type jeans, oh no, they are now being put on the back burner.

We’re talking classic jeans, proper denim. The ones some of us  have forgotten all about or haven’t even met yet. People have been wearing so many stretchy types of denim styles. I think that people have forgotten what it is like to wear real denim. Proper twill denim the type you have to wear in…and once you have you will never want to take them off. It’s not just jeans…its denim everything skirts, shirts, jackets and dresses. You can also have your denim  personalized  with embroidery and badges and patches

This time it is about mixing things up with different cuts, styles and textures. Embrace the Denim the style choices are amazing! You can choose from boyfriend cut….tapered, cropped leg, wide leg…time to be adventurous and break away from your skinny jeans! Let’s be honest we don’t all suit them!

Skinny jeans have been in fashion for so long most of us have forgotten or don’t know what 0ther trouser styles suit them.  We have started to feel conditioned into thinking that we all look great in them and actually that is not the case.

Here are a few tips to help you Hour glass and pear shapes look great in high waisted wide leg jeans…these balance your thighs, make your legs look longer and emphasise you great waistline.  Straights and Inverted triangle shapes go for boyfriend jean or a boot leg. If you have a wide waistline go for mid length shapes and avoid the high waistlines.

In my opinion it is always best to buy a good quality denim that will stand the test of time and not sag or go baggy.  For a middle of the range price try Levis or Wrangler.

It’s the end of April and it is time to look through your wardrobe and throw away those scruffy over worn jumpers, fluffy tights and thick holey socks.  Store the good clothes away until November.

 

All the extra space you have made in your wardrobe can now be filled up with the new Spring/Summer items. There are lots of lovely things out there this season. From monochrome and candy coloured pastels to printed flowers.
