Close your eyes and imagine what really cool urban fashion looks like right now. (Now open them and carry on reading.) Nowadays the coolest items out there are covered in studs, are pastel, have a bit of dip/tie dye thing going on and are either cropped or totally oversized (perfect length and fit are so not in). And surprise surprise there is just the brand that this season has put all of those elements together and created the most perfect on trend denim collection ever. Meet The Ragged Priest.
I noticed the brand last season – wool jumpers patched up with studded leather, dark colours and a lot of denim looked interesting. But it was not until a few months ago, once revealing S/S12 collection Ragged Priest exploded – all the cool girls in town are wearing it and our favourite celebrity crushes are promoting the brand world wide (think about studded pieces Rihanna and Jessy J wore recently and chances are they were created by this brand).
But the coolness does not stop there – each piece starts off as a vintage items that is transformed to its new look (you can so steal some of the creative ideas for DIY fashion) making the exact size/colour/pattern more or less unique. And the prices are totally cool as well – completely in the high street range despite being way cooler (pardon my slight obsession with how cool this brand is).
So if you like my picks, check out the whole range at their online boutique. 1. Candy Striper Shirt, £45
2. Albino Sweatshirt Crop, £45
3. Bon Bon Gilet, £65
4. Gnarly Denim Jacket, £90
5. Limited Edition Shorts, £95
6. Toxic Waste Shorts, £40
7. Apple Jack Shorts, £65

If you are not wearing it yet, you are too far behind. Seriously.
It’s Velvet. Very old fashioned I hear you say? Well in fashion it all comes back around. And yes I agree, I am not fashionista enough to engulf myself in velvet from head to toe either. And if you do not have a velvet skirt or cardigan lying around than follow my lead and select garments with hint of velvet.
Like this beautiful Asos shirt with velvet trim and crystal embellished collar (attention is on the collar as well – another trend box this shirt ticks). I am wearing one right now. And my advise – make it more decent by adding a black tank top or camisole underneath. That way you can wear it to work too!
Purchase it from http://www.asos.com for £40.
