THE POLO NECK UPDATE

Whether you call it a roll, turtle, polo or skivvy (skivvy? I’d never heard of it either.  It’s an Australian thing apparently), this is one knit that you should definitely be investing in this season. I spend most of the long British winter trying to stay as warm and comfortable as possible which generally results in all thoughts of style and fashion flying straight out the window.  However this season, throwing on a huge knit, in particular a polo neck, is totally legit.

A bit of street stalking gives us plenty of tips on how to wear this key piece.  Go big on top and tight on the bottom if you are leaving the house and want to avoid looking like Jabba the hutt and even layer up a tighter fit of polo neck under a shirt for a more glam look that will still keep you toasty warm.  Oh and top tip to look like a true fashion darrrllling- make sure your hair is tucked in to the roll neck.  Although a word of warning: this will result in being itchy and hot.  As is always the case, no pain no gain.

STAN THE MAN

I’m having a deja-vu moment.  I am about 14, sitting in the changing room at the beginning of a new school term and everybody, I mean ev-ver-ry-body has come back with the same trainers.  Everybody that is, except me.  Today, I’m not at school and definitely not in a changing room but I still feel left out of the trainer club.  This time round I am talking about the Adidas Stan Smiths.  These bad boys aren’t a new trend but it now seems like EVERY member of the fashpack is wearing them.  Whether you pair them with skirts, masculine tailoring or just your good ol’ jeans, the Stans are a sure fire way to update your wardrobe with a little bit of cool girl attitude.

FEELING THE HEAT

With temperatures staying north of 20 degrees in London for a 4th day in a row, our thoughts have inevitably turned to all things Summer.  After the initial panic of having to get the winter legs out, we are now fully in Summer mode…until that is, the onset of the forecasted rain next week.  This editorial from Vogue Spain (June 2014) is doing a pretty good job of getting us inspired for long, lazy beach days with super babe Karolina Kurkova doing what she does best.
