Stripes and denim are two of my all-time favourite fashion themes, and combined they look even better. If I’m stuck, they’re my go-to styles; both timeless and easy to wear. When I feel too girly (that’s not really my thing), denim is the best way to add a bit of that boyish edge that I love to any outfit. You can never go wrong with a striped dress and trainers to caj it down or a striped tee, teamed under dungarees or a denim pinafore for maximum cool points. A Breton top tucked into blue, cropped jeans is always a fail-safe ensemble for me if I can’t find anything else to wear.
The flared sleeve is Spring’s undoubtedly chic trend: effortlessly cool and easy to pull off. If my purse allowed it I’d have invested in probably every style on the high street because, let’s face it, the flare isn’t going anywhere. Ideal for beating the cold of these chilly but sunny months (no one’s ready for bare arms yet…right?) but hinting to summer with an airy and relaxed vibe.
These are my favourite picks, but there are plenty more options out there too if you want a pop of colour or a slightly more subtle sleeve. For me, though, I’m loving the neutral and almost clinical presentation of stripes, surgical white, grey and (especially) gingham.

As much as I love dresses, I’m a massive advocate for ditching feminine skirts for trousers and a more masculine style. Most of the vintage items I buy are men’s checked shirts and oversized tees, and in today’s society jeans have become probably the biggest staple for everyday womenswear.
