A Different Take on Stripes

Spring = Stripes. It’s just how the story goes. But this season, we’re busting out something a little more rock n’ roll and not as Beetlejuice-esque as you might think; striped trousers. Ah yes, unflattering we hear you say. Not so. Not with a wide, straight cut.

It’s time to lighten up and get out of the trenches. Wardrobe, say hello to your new spring jacket: The Duster Coat.

Spring is in the air, sort of, and that means an onslaught of bloomin’ florals. Interpret that as you will. The thing about florals is that, pretty as they are, especially the vintage inspired prints, they can, if not careful, tread into dangerous territory – dare we say it, ‘twee’ – or it can be a little in your face. Neither is good. So keeping that in mind, and that
