DOUBLE DENIM ::

This Spring our cool friend denim is making appearances in the form of dresses, boilersuits, dungarees and denim on denim combos. Basically all in one denim or double denim is the way to go to make a street style statement. If you’re eager for a run down of the different denim looks at New York Fashion Week and on the streets of #NYFW2015 keep your eyes peeled for our next blog post.

THE BIG SHINE ::

 

My favourite way to liven up washed out tones, whites and faded denims is with metallics. A bit of shine can step up a minimal look and add that chic Spring/Summer touch to any outfit. Keep it clean cut and minimal in the form of an accessory or accent. Here are my favourite picks, in store now.

THE COPPER CLUB

Copper carries a sense of retro. It’s one of the oldest metals known to man, being instrumental to the name “The Bronze Age”, yet it is versatile and slick enough in the most contemporary environments. The resurgence of copper is modernised by using it juxtaposed with slick and minimal interiors and decor. A hint of yesteryear combined with a glimpse of tomorrow.

Country Road have a gorgeous range of copper items that make it oh so easy to combine these treasures into our homes whilst Cape Town vintage lighting company Hoy P’loy is jazzing up our light fittings with these beautiful copper fitted pendant lights. With the artisanal touch, copper promises never to disappoint.

Totes!

Country Road have a trendy range of tote bags at the moment. I walked into The Country Road store yesterday and couldn’t hold back buying myself one of the edgy black and white cross totes. Included in their range are seasonal hot checks and plaids, giving an autumn/winter ’14 twist to these products. Besides totes they are also doing stylish shoppers. Get your fill at Country Road stores or Woolworths.
