As the season gets hotter we get closer and closer to that all important bikini bare. Until then
working on topping up the tan without risking lobster style is essential. One of this seasons fashion
blasts from the past is the all-important washed-out denim. Acid hotpants, faded waistcoats and
stonewashed crop tops are one step away from helping you with that sun-kissed pampering you long
to leave behind.

Mix and match by wearing less textured materials against the denim. Aztec and floral patterns are
hot off the shelves this month so stick to cotton and nylon fabrics against denim to welcome back
this retro trend. With the bank holiday booster and weather about to reach its peak, it’s the perfect
time to get outdoors and get your glow on the go. Porcelain skin tones complement darker denim
with acid patterns and the lighter, stonewashed denim make any melanin-packed women look
strikingly bronzed.

As one of the staple summer season looks for festival-goers this particular 90’s trend is a timeless
style that will never fail to make a cheeky comeback. Dig out those acid wash leggings you once
considered offering to Oxfam as something worth giving or dare to bare with a denim skater. If you
don’t have any washed out denim already, go forth and seek your denim to get the latest look that
will potentially last the longest in that wardrobe that never wants to fit anything in. Ok, the over-
filled, under-organised wardrobe. Sigh…
