Trend watch: January blues by Bairbre Power
A good new year's resolution on the fashion front is to wear more colour and blue is a solid start as SS16 delivers a gobsmakingly array of denims... and yes we will be doubling them up.
Baby, it's blue!
There's a chic mix of denim, matt leather and striking hardware on this cute bag (above) from popular high street brand River Island. Morphing nicely from a clutch into shoulder bag, this beauty costs €37 and arrives into stores next week.
Weekend luxe: Zoe Jordan is the queen of understated, sexy weekend leisurewear and her new SS16 collection really captures the magic of layering up blues. Her 'Goodall' round neck cashmere sweater features a plaited cable detail snaking from shoulder down the length of the sleeves. It costs €475 and is available at Brown Thomas. The leather skirt is €400 from her website, zoejordan.com and Zoe's collection will be arriving later this month to Emporium Kalu in Naas and Havana in Donnybrook.
Watch out for these denim pieces landing in stores for spring. The jeans jacket (pictured, no.1) will cost €17 at Penneys from the last week of February and, in March, keep an eye out for the handy long denim skirt (€18).
In stores now is the salsa denim one-piece (no.2), €110, House of Fraser, Dundrum Town Centre. The sleeveless, button-through dress (no.3), will be €16 at Penneys from January 16 and the cute €13 pale tan suede brogues are slated to land January 27. From the catwalk, this striking Marc Jacobs tartan shirt (no.4) is €535 at Brown Thomas.
