This week we’re wearing…Aztec

Words by Steph Hodgkinson

Up and down the high street there’s one trend that’s everywhere at the moment: aztec. The bright and bold print is quickly becoming this summer’s hottest trend and a staple for every girl’s wardrobe.

Whether it’s monochrome or multi coloured, there’s something eye-catching for everyone this season. New Look are particularly nailing the look with their extensive collection of crop tops, bandeaus, midi and maxi dresses and shorts. Boohoo have also followed suit with their ‘Aztec Invasion’ collection.

Sally Crosby, who works for Topshop, says the look is back in: “It’s definitely on-trend to wear aztec this season, and it’s one of this summer’s staples along with midi and maxi dresses.”

Dress down the look for daytime with an aztec top and stonewashed jeans, or glam it up with wedges and a colourful midi dress – the perfect alternative to a maxi for petite girls.

Celebrities from Ashley Tisdale to Megan Fox have been spotted rocking the trend recently. So what are you waiting for? Here’s our pick of the best aztec pieces from the high street…

This week we’re wearing… Ankle Socks!

By Kim Perry

Do you remember those cute little lace trim socks you wore when you were at school? The ones you had to fold over so they sat nicely on your ankle? Well, they’re back!

Thats right, Spring 2013 has seen the return of the ankle sock, a cute little accessory ready and waiting to transform any of your key looks.

The thing I love about ankle socks is that they are perfect for day or night, and really add something a little bit quirky to what can be, a rather plain outfit.

Wear them with brogues, mary janes, or heels, they’ll go with anything that requires a little of bit of ankle.

They are available at most high street stores, Topshop having the biggest (and best) selection. Go grab some now!
