Fit and fab
The days of wearing that tired old tracksuit out for a jog or down to the gym are dead. These days, sportswear is as chic as everything else in your wardrobe: from smart zumba looks that are anything but traditional, precision running gear that's breathable, durable and design-focused to yoga clothes you can really move in. As Kendall Jenner (above) knows, it's time to get strong in style.
Taylor Swift, Sarah Jessica Parker and even Bill Clinton have fallen for the charms of Irish knitwear so it's no surprise to see We Are Islanders Art & Fashion House doing so well. Their knitwear is produced in Donegal Yarns, one of Ireland's last remaining woollen mills.
Steal her style
Take a leaf out of Kirsten Dunst's ladylike look (above) with a jacquard knit dress for a touch of vintage romance. This Gucci printed and pleated number makes for a sweet statement that'll work from desk to dinner. It's not all saccharine with a gold lamé thread giving this dress a youthful and contemporary shimmer. Complete the look with loosely tousled tresses and a pink lip.
