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!
