Would you have thought that a jumper could also be worn as a dress? "Know-how" is the watchword here. Our top all-rounder can be worn as a jumper in two different ways, and those so inclined can also wear it as a cheeky minidress, with the sleeves as a belt tied at the front or in back. Three garments in one!
Or have you ever worn a rectangle of fabric as a poncho? Considering how simple this model is to make, it's all the more surprising what a sophisticated impression it creates – cosy warm, and beautifully decorative despite the
simple materials used to make it.
Even with our evening wear we fall back on a very simple style. The fabric alone makes a statement, with the little details dotting the 'i's and crossing the 't's.
Had you realised that it's almost Christmas again? This time, we've got to grips with the latest yuletide trends. Classic red-and-white, warm shades of brown and gold, pastel tones and restrained white are our favourites in the list of the most important Christmas colour trends. With all these options, you're sure
to find the right choice for every taste. Here too, we've taken care to keep the styles simple.
Often, it's the little things that grab our attention. We only really notice them consciously at second glance, but by then we're utterly hooked. Decorative seams, simple styles, special materials. It's entirely within your power to achieve maximum effect with a simple design. Sometimes, less definitely is more!
