Boyfriend jeans spring summer 2013

I’m struggling to motivate myself to get down to Somerset House for London Fashion Week’s AW13 instalment this morning. Maybe it’s the cold weather making me reluctant to look at the styles we’ll be wearing next winter. Maybe it’s the thought of all the poseurs on the cobbles (ugh). Perhaps I’m just exhausted after staying up until the early hours celebrating Valentine’s Day…

I actually have the opportunity to relax today, and (until my Fashion Week mojo kicks into action) think I’d rather watch the live stream of fashion shows on LFW’s YouTube Channel than trawl around the exhibit in unsuitable shoes.

And anyway, one of the trends I’m into right now is keeping me in a spring/summer frame of mind: who wants to look at next winter’s styles when you can add some cowgirl chic to your life right now? The current wave of denim fashion is going back to boyfriend cuts and casual styles, worn with cute checked shirts, ditsy floral prints and fringed suede shirts. Fabulous.

If you want to create the look, start with a pair of boyfriend jeans (the pair shown above is only £14.99 @ New Look) as the foundation to your outfit and then frame them with western-style separates and accessories such as…
