Trends | Leather Baseball Cap

I was lusting over a black leather baseball cap a few months back, and since then my love of this trend has seen the addition of three colours to my wardrobe with my eye on a tan version to complete my collection.

With sports luxe styling still going strong on both the catwalks and the streets, I see the leather baseball cap turning from a fashion trend to a closet staple.

Not just a great way to cap off (geddit?) an outfit, but also perfect for hiding unwashed or messy hair. I can’t get enough of mine!

Trends | Cropped tops

If you’re anything like me, the thought of baring my midriff after winter is very, very scary.

But I am loving this trend and the way the style-set are pairing cropped tops with high-waisted skirts and pants.

I think the safest way to take-on this trend is sticking to neutral colours or stripes.

Here are my top picks of cropped styles available now.
