Wear less, wear it well
A while ago, Lauren Laverne wrote about dressing like your hero in her regular column for The Observer. Her hero was an imaginary Lady Steve McQueen, an aesthetic touchstone to help navigate her wardrobe through the whirlwind of her 30something years. She talked about forgetting fashion, being more selective, less emotional in her choices; wearing less, but wearing it well, always asking "would Lady Steve wear this?"
The article immediately had us thinking that we too are channelling some Lady Steve up in the womenswear department this SS14. Great jeans remaining a number one priority, boyfriends through to straights; t-shirts, turned up at the sleeves or criss-crossed in stripes; shirts, wafty cheesecloth through to classic Oxfords. Yes, we're right onboard with this hero-dressing.
