No longer just a place for teenagers to hang out at the weekends, the shopping mall has become the ultimate stomping ground for leaders of the fashion pack. We weren’t disappointed on a recent visit to shopping paradise Westfield Stratford City.
Go gingham style with a checked shirt, sports utility backpack, chinos and a pair of tan or brown brogues with bright colour pop laces. Rock just the right amount of geek chic by adding a pair of thick-rimmed specs in black or tortoiseshell.
We adore these wide leg cream culottes. Make the most of the last of the summer sun and team them with an off the shoulder crop top and sandals for a pretty, minimalist outfit. Give the look a refresh come September by adding a fringed shoe boot or some T-bar flats. Add a boxy black top with an elbow length sleeve to maintain that must-have monochrome.
Whether you’re soaking up the summer at Secret Garden Party or partying hard at T in the Park – festival season is upon us. With tents, beer and folding chairs already balanced precariously on your back, you’ll want to pack light, so we’ve devised an all-weather ensemble to ensure you’re festival ready.
Statement colour chinos will help you look the part; and can be cuffed and rolled when the sun comes out. A short sleeve floral print shirt will work from day to night – and means you’ll be visible in a crowd. A pair of our Vulco Arrow Originals will help you look cool when you’re on your feet all day and our retro mini backpack is perfect for stashing a lightweight mac, festival guide and a cheeky hip flask.
Retro shades and a straw fedora will not only protect you from the rays but also complement that glitter moustache or dash of neon face paint you’ll no doubt acquire along the way. Finally you’ll have to pack your wellies, but hopefully they can remain in the tent…
