If I had to choose one outfit style to wear for the rest of my life – a daily uniform if you will – it would have to be dungarees and a stripy tee. I usually have them on rotation anyway, and love how such a classic look has become the staple of my wardrobe. The simple style is so perenially chic, always hitting the nail on the head with relaxed Parisian vibes while simultaneously making a silent statement.
All hail the 90s! I was only a baby in the decade but my sister was a teenager and I have vivid memories of her getting ready to go out clubbing listening to sassy girl bands, parading around in an oversized Spice Girls t-shirt, so the era is nostalgic and special to me.
Vintage is my thing, and recently I have acquired some great pieces from Cow vintage, a haven of quirky upcycled treasures that I fell in love with last year when exploring Nottingham for the first time (they also have stores in Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester and recently opened one in Liverpool). Vintage shopping gives me a buzz that no other kind does (and trust me I love shopping) because old, unwanted clothes have a story to tell and styles can be rediscovered by a new owner. Cow has a fab selection of denim, floral dresses and reworked Ralph Lauren crop tops. Sometimes you can even find a battered pair of Docs or old school trainers for a ridiculously cheap price (it’s ideal for stingy students like me!).
