Abbey Booth Qualified Personal Stylist at Stories With Clothes.
I love how denim gets reinvented each season, especially this year with innovative styles all over the catwalk from ruffle dresses, denim suits, wide skirts, oversized jackets, veiled wedding dress and the return of the bootleg jean! There is a definite relaxed vibe to denim in 2020 and it’s interesting to see it’s journey from standard workwear to be durable and practical first invented in 1873, denim styles for women launched in 1934, to 60’s flares and bootcut styles heralding a more relaxed era, to the ubiquitious skinny jean in the 2000’s.

This is what happens when you shop your wardrobe, de-clutter and sort through the clothes you already own. There are new outfits crying out to be created sometimes with just a repair or two – but they are still all there to be loved and used anew with a fresh eye.
And this is why a Wardrobe Refresh is one of my most rewarding services as you will have found lots of new outfits, breathed life and soul back into ‘old’ styles and in the process get yourself a brand new wardrobe without the need to go shopping!
I was recently asked by the BBC to comment on the debate over the suggestion that Jo Swinson would generate more votes for her party if she wore low-cut tops, by an ill-advised member of the the general public (thank goodness it wasn’t someone from within her team). To be honest I find it utterly ridiculous and very sad that we are even having this conversation – it’s 2019 folks – nearly 2020 and the beginning of a new decade. But here we are with inequality in pay an enormous issue and less than 7% of women in senior roles in the UK and the increase worldwide for women in Senior Managements roles is still shockingly low being only 3% over the last five years.
