It's one of those fashion editor discussions that is repeated year after year especially in the run-up to party dressing and a change of weather. Are sheer tights a yes or a no? As ludicrous as it sounds, I would rather go bare-legged in the height of winter than cover up in the wrong shade of nude.
Stand to attention. The fashionista army is indeed growing again this season. Military accents continue to make their mark on our wardrobes. We're not suggesting you go all out in head-to-toe camouflage but instead add a tough feel or a splat of khaki to your daily outfits.
It's the cult-classic fabric with the rebel attitude. It never dates; it's timeless and wears well on young and old. Match a soft biker jacket with trousers or a feminine floaty dress for a tough edgy feel. Give ladylike dressing a sexy twist with a leather skirt. Minis or midis rock this season. While leather trousers lend a laid-back effortless attitude to dressing in leather.
It may be the most 'parev' of colours but grey is having a bit of a fashion moment.

For us mums, it's not all about Clarks school shoes and a fresh stock of school uniform.

It's that time again. Out with the old and in with the new. Follow the fash-pack and get shopping before the change of weather and the abundance of festivals that will soon be upon us. Here are our top 10 pointers to breathing new life into your wardrobe.
I'm a sucker for detail. Give me a zip, a buckle or a tassel and I’m immediately reeled in. Intricate details make an otherwise simple garment stand out from the crowd. A fringe, (the fashion kind, not the hair variety) has a Boho-feel that’s more fitting with American cowboys and Wild West films.
Jumpsuits are your modern solution to easy fuss-free dressing. These all-in-one ensembles are your casual and more versatile alternative to a dress and especially fabulous for those you don't like flashing a bare leg.
