Items of the Week: Washed Denim

This week we’re so excited by the launch of our 2014 Denim Guide that we had to choose our mens and womens items of the week from new arrival jeans!

This washed and distressed denim look is a key trend this Winter, and we love this G-Star Raw style in both mens jeans and womens jeans. Paired with a tee and some Converse or even dressed up, this versatile denim is an essential addition to this season’s wardrobe. Check out our inspiration and items of the week.

Maurie & Eve: Mineral Minds

Not long ago we mentioned how happy we were to be adding Australian label Maurie & Eve to our site and it looks like we weren’t the only ones welcoming the brand with open arms…and our credit cards.

We are even more excited about the most recent drops from this amazing labels Winter14 collection, Mineral Minds. This collection gives us one reason to look forward to winter. So many of the pieces are bound to become key pieces in your wardrobe this winter. On top of my list is the ‘Word Denim Jacket’, it has all the best elements of a denim jacket and is in the running to become a lifetime friend. It’s the perfect vintage blue wash and has enough slouch to keep you comfortable for hours on end!

We have a few of the pieces already up online and quite a few more to come! Shop the collection here.

STRIPED STAPLES

My appreciation towards a striped staple on a Monday morning is almost on par with that of my first coffee for the day. There is nothing worse than standing in front of your wardrobe and having a “I have nothing to wear” moment when you’ve snoozed your alarm a few times too many and cut in to the time you usually allow for this exact moment. On top of this, you’re probably dealing with the harsh reality of the weekend being over and dreaming of a brioche bun for breakfast but having to settle for vegemite on toast…or is that just my average Monday? To avoid dragging on the morning anymore than we need to, just opt for your striped staples. Over time I’ve accumulated enough stripes to ensure that even if I haven’t done the washing for the week, I’ll always have some stripes for my Monday morning.

Check out some striped pieces you could add to your collection here.
