Take a much-loved old faithful and mix it with something shiny and new for the cleverest way to dress this year.
We’re not saying that we don’t love treating ourselves to a head-to-toe new outfit once in a while but, honestly, like everyone else, we have items in our drawers that come out year-after-year and always help us to feel great.
Whether it’s your soft, worn in denim jacket (mine is 26 years old, yes, really); a floaty summer dress that always makes it into the holiday suitcase, or a cotton sweater that seems to go with everything, these old faithfuls are timeless, personal classics.
At Javelin we try hard to keep it real, so we love to help you discover pieces from our current collections that will slip seamlessly into your wardrobe each season and give a boost to your much-loved favourites. If our team can help you to create fresh looks and outfits by mixing and matching new items with things you already have then, frankly, we’re happy.
And you never know, this season’s latest buy may become one of your old faithfuls in years to come…
Here are three looks we’re loving, taking classic pieces that you might already have in your wardrobe and mixing with some Javelin new arrivals.
Your favourite dress
There are some dresses that, try your hardest, you can’t resist taking them on holiday - again. And there’s a good reason. That’s the dress that goes from beach to bar to dinner with only a change of shoes, and has become softer and more delightfully sun-bleached over the years.
Get the footwear right and you have a outfit that works from dawn to dancing
Your forever jacket
A denim or leather jacket is one of those old faithfuls that, when you find the one you love, you will wear it year- in, year-out: a multi season classic that literally never goes out of fashion.
So mix it up this year with gorgeous wide-legged pastel striped pants from Frnch
Sling it over a feminine, broderie anglaise blouse
And if you’re searching for a glamorous evening look, this black jumpsuit might be just the thing
Your much-loved sweatshirt
We’re guessing that lots of you have a much-loved logoed sweatshirt somewhere. Perhaps a favourite band or sports team?
Wear with sharp denim jeans (and we’re betting that you have a favourite pair already, by the way!), or over a floral midi dress for an eclectic take that’s right up-to-date.
