how to wear flares

Flared jeans are officially back on the high street and I’m ecstatic because in my mind they never really left. I’ll admit that some of the styles filling the racksΒ make me cringe a little with flashbacks to my college years where we all strutted about in our uber-low hipster Sass & Bides with the hems tattered from dragging along the ground around our Vans – but mostly this season the brands I love are producing far more sophisticated versions that… Read more »

One baby in particular I will be pining for is my fat faux leopard fur which I’ve worn with just about everything over the cold season. Anyway, I must remember it’s only spring, so here’s how I’m planning to stretch my winter staple into the new season…
