Ballet News Selects

Today I want to share with you some of the gems I stumbled upon over the weekend.  I’ve selected a couple of new suppliers who have produced beautiful items in perfect colours for Spring.  This time, the fashion picks are casual.

Boden Silk Trim Boyfriend Cardigan

First up, Boden.  I know – it’s not the trendiest place on earth and it’s catalogues don’t seem to change much from year to year, filled as they are with stretch dresses in busy prints, but maybe they’re onto something.

This Silk Trim Boyfriend Cardigan was a big seller last year and so they’ve brought it back – not a bad thing, surely ?

The lipstick colour is perfect for spring, and at £59 the cost per wear is likely to be low. The other benefits are :

  • 100% merino wool
  • Hand wash only
  • Relaxed fit
  • Full length sleeves
  • Length finishes at top thigh
  • Sizes 6 to 22

It does come in other colours including lavender, Vintage Gold and Storm.

I’d team this cardigan with skinny jeans, and there are so many around at the moment in gorgeous pastel shades that make a change from denim & are perfect for Spring.

ballet jeansI particularly like this pair from, wait for it, M&S!  Their Indigo Collection has been a hit for some time, as the clothes are easy, stylish casual wear made for everyday living.

These lavender skinny jeans are velvety-soft and just the perfect shade.

Skinny jeans are modern classics. They’re the easiest shape to wear and perfect for all shapes and sizes.

You can dress dark shades up for a smarter feel and wear lighter, authentic shades for casual looks.

Try buying a shorter leg length for an ankle-grazing length that’s great with heels!

The jeans are £35.

From TopShop, the Tower Chunky Laceup Trainers come in three colours, and since the aim is to mix up the colours, I’ve chosen the pink ones. They are £22 and 100% cotton.
