winter trends!

Tartan is so easy to wear and makes any outfit more fun, pair it with black to make the colour of the shirt pop and add some dark lipstick and gold accessories.

 The velvet dress is perfect for this winter, pair with chunky boots and black tights for a pretty but grungy look. You can also layer shirts or crop tops underneath for a more daytime style.

Our tees are perfect for any occasion, this Occult one is great paired with a tartan skirt and choker for an amazing 90's vibe. Layer under an oversized denim jacket and tie your hair in a high pony to get our model's look.

All these items and more are available on our website
