When Company asked Alexa Chung to choose leather/denim/stripes, she opted for the reliable denim. I would have to agree. Don’t get me wrong I love my leather trousers, and some slimming vertical stripes are such a saving grace on a ‘fat day’, but denim has stood the test of time. I can’t remember a year, since I got it, when I haven’t worn my levis denim skirt, a denim jacket can instantly turn your favourite outfit for the clubs into the perfect attire for a day in the park, and although I have been a little late to discover the wonder of them, everyone I know has at least 3 pairs of jeans.
The S/S lines are hitting the shops already, and denim is everywhere. Pastel coloured skinnies, 70’s inspired skirts, animal print hot pants, oversized boyfriend jackets and also holiday must have playsuits seem to be popular with the high street.

I’m pretty sure my sewing skills are not quite good enough yet for me to make myself any of these items, so I will be heading to the charity shops and the wonderful markets of London to see if I can discover any similar items.
