I have written a fashion column for the brand new issue of RWD magazine, which should have hit the shops now. RWD is a brilliant magazine edited by Hattie C (whose blog you can find on the links section) and the fashion editor is the one and only wonderman of Shoreditch, known for his amazing threads, Richard Shoyemi.

RWD is the ultimate in youth publications, long may it reign

Here is the text as you wont be able to read it above:

There is doom and gloom on the news, money is tight and the weather's pretty gross - no one can save us now but fashion. Kanye was spotted in Paris recently with his crew of pattern adorned, neon bright fashionista friends and the recent Marc Jacobs show ushered in a whole new collection of acid bright clothes. Note to self, don't go wearing black, it's so not cool. Take your pick from the following high street trends hitting shops near you:

50's floral

Brand new UK singer VV Brown and hit TV show Mad Men have sparked the trend for 50's fashion nostalgia. Pick up your vintage style floral from, their spring summer collection is full of structured tops and great voluminous 50’s skirts.

Denim leggings

Want your skinnies as skin tight as possible? Then Urban Outfitters have just the thing for you, their denim look leggings are flying off the shelves, wear with an oversized vest and dunks or peep toe heels for that totally on trend eighties look.

Hair bows

A look seen at the Topshop Unique show and, therefore, sure to explode on the high street soon. We're not talking Gossip Girl-esque head bands adorned with bows here, oh no, channel Winehouse and tie a headscarf into a bow to create the perfect hair accessory for Spring/Summer.

Double Denim

Yep, you read correctly, double denim is going to be a big hit this year, whether you are wearing denim jacket and jeans combo, denim bikini tops with cut off shorts or a denim jumpsuit. It may sound like the worst idea on paper but Topshop have pulled it off in their Unique collection – boys this is for you too. Pastel colour jeans are making a huge comeback, you can get great versions in H&M – again, boys be brave, don’t leave all of the fashion fun to the ladies.

Great article and great advice, when I started seeing the denim on denim look it freaked me out a bit. But after seeing it successfully done I am actually really liking it.
Well done again :-)
