You could say that Acne are a brand which although designer, epitomizes the high end of the high street. The prices are not ridiculous and you know that the cut and quality of the jeans and trousers is always fantastic. A favorite for the past few seasons amongst the fashion industry, their minimalist approach to apparel and pioneering cuts in denim have made them into a must have brand. The spring summer collection has an emphasis on contrasting silhouette. Without a doubt my favorite way to wear clothes. Being top heavy means you can wear the skinniest jeans and the clumpiest shoes and not look emaciated. Last season the carrot fit was featured and this season, drop crotch tailored trousers in the seersucker material have made an appearance. They are amazing. The problem with a drop crotch is that they never seem to be skinny enough at the bottom to create a big enough contrast to get away with them. In additional to this clothing, as expected for summer, they are pushing the sandal. They have produced a less intense more neutral version of their gladiator sandal of last summer. I still could never imagine pulling them off. Or wanting to. On the other hand, the desert boots that Acne are offering this season are beautiful. Going against the minimalist theme, the leopard print desert boots make quite a statement. Here are the highlights.

Although on their website, it’s only in an XXL, I popped into a couple of AllSaints recently and saw their full size range so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find your size. It’s hard to justify buying knitwear in a heat wave, but you can never have enough cardigans and with it’s seersucker design, it’s a staple that’s not going to bore other people to death.

The shops are going into mid season sales, and amongst the vast ammounts of shite, there are some good bargains to be had. Here is my picks.

Jumper by Junk De Luxe £84 £42

This fair isle knit is the only thing I could ever imagine wanting from River Island and I mangaged to snap it up half price the other day. Creates an easy slouchy look and is warm and comfortable. What more do you want?
Hoodie by River Island £34 £17

I actually cannot believ what a steal these are. Yes, I did have to suffer by going on the Burton website. But waht a bargain! Plus no cool people will have a clue where they’re from.
Brogues by Burton £50 £20
