There’s a strong focus on denim for Western Wanderer, yet what sets these items apart from the rest is the attention to detail on each piece. The dungaree shorts feature feminine crochet hems, the denim jacket includes lace applique and the blue heart dress gets a cute pink pocket for contrast. These minimal, yet important aspects to the designs bring basics into more contemporary, dress-up territories.
Pink jumper £9, skinny jeans £9, silver shoes £9
Striped shirt £7, dungarees £10
Key items include pretty A-Line dresses, in plain and polka dot options, along with cool dungaree shorts and statement striped sweaters. The silhouette for this trend is all about the slim fit but with maximum comfort. For young girls, this means wearing slim bottom weights like skinny jeans, teamed with Breton top and a denim jacket. Dresses are also easy-to-wear coming in jersey fabrications and worn with Velcro fastened trainers.

Undercurrent, is the title for our boy’s spring trend for 2016. This time of year is when boys are in their element, as pleasant weather allows them to play outside with friends, practicing their favourite sports such as BMX-ing and basketball. This theme takes inspiration from both this sense of energetic activity and also the rippling movement of water below the sea’s surface, resulting in a sports luxe vibe via smart casual items.
Shower resistant jacket £12, polo shirt £3.80, shorts £6
Fabrics are where this product drop gets interesting. Using contrasting lighter fabrications such as cottons and denims with slightly heavier, shinier materials brings each component of the look together in a completely original way. This idea of mixing up textures can also be used with existing pieces in your son’s wardrobe, making it a useful tip to take on board for the future.
