Our favourite Irish model and style crush — the divine Ruth Griffin — proves it’s time to ditch those skinnies and jeggings and invest in some high-waisted denims. Seventies-style jeans are a big look this summer, and Ruth’s subtly flared indigo jeans nail the trend, but avoid looking like they came from the Charlie’s Angels costume department.

Wearing a head-to-toe decade revival is never a good idea, so take a leaf out of Ruth’s book and team your retro trousers with modern classics such as her simple tank and All Saints black blazer. She keeps things laid-back with a black slouch bag from River Island, simple hoop earrings and cute tassled loafers. The skinny belt and baby-blue scarf add a dash of instant cool to this on-trend ensemble.
