Trends are inspiring, granted, but that's all the credit I'll give them. Over time I've realised that having a defining personal style is what interests me in fashion. I like the idea of creating an entire wardrobe around your persona and lifestyle. You'll regularly see me wearing an outfit based on a play of oversized volumes like the outfit above, an addition of quirky shoes has become quite a staple too.

When I was younger, more naïve and far less experienced, I had a particular distate for blue tops paired with jeans of a similar hue. The idea of chromatic like-for-like used to send shivers down my spine. Now I live-for-live for it.

This cyclical, hate-to-love pattern is quite a regular occurrence (listing Birks, pointy-toed shoes, sneakers and raw denim with orange seams amongst its highest contenders). Now I'm all about the Canadian tuxedo, the Blues Brothers, the Denim and the Deep Blue Sea. The above editorial, fresh off the CR Fashion Book site, is a fine example of sartorially elevating the American Dream of all materials to oxygen-reduced levels of high fashion. Not the first instance, either. And while layering trousers (yep!) is as far removed from practicality as heel-less platform shoes (looking at you, Ms Guinness), it does beckon the question: "How well do we really know our denim?"

With spring in (somewhat) full bloom outerwear takes on an increasing importance as temperatures change from morning to evening. I’ve put together an outfit that will allow me to go from day to night, from casual cool to an outfit that says ‘I’ve got this under control’… sort of.
