Lily with t-shirt and skirt7 For All Mankind High Waist Straight Leg  jeansStyle note: Light and fresh for summer, this latest incarnation of Mulberry’s Lily can be teamed with both casual and smart outfits. The obvious choice is to pair it alongside a pair of denim jeans, and it would look great teamed with 7 For All Mankind’s High Waist Straight Leg  jeans, pictured on the right.

Alternatively, if you want a smarter yet really summery and fresh look, try teaming the Lily with smart separates and dress to impress.

The model on the left is wearing the the Acne Pink Copy Tee and the See by Chloé Paper Plisse Tiered Skirt.

Finally, complete the outfit with a pair of leg lengthening nude heels for maximum impact. There are quite a few around this summer, but my personal favourite are the Vivienne Westwood Nude Skyscraper Courts, which have confidence boosting iconic style all of their own.

The Fat Face Upcycle bag is a new denim bag made from recycled denim jeans. This bag has been made in limited numbers but I’m fortunate enough to have one right in front of me.

This bag has a rectangular shape with a large open pocket on the front, stitched over the “fly”. There are further standard jeans pockets on the front, together with a slip pocket inside which could be used for a PDA or mobile phone. The bag is lightweight and pops easily over one shoulder. On the back of the bag at the waistband, there is a brown leather Fat Face label. Inside, there are various slogans printed, one of which says: “RENT THE HOUSE SELL THE CAR KEEP YOUR JEANS”. Wise words indeed.

For every denim bag sold, Fat Face are donating £5 to the Fat Face Foundation which aims to supports charities suchs as the  The Marine Conservation Society and Groundworks. The bag costs £20 and is available from selected Fat Face stores and online.

Measurements: Width 20″ / 51cm  x Length 15.5″ /39cm; handle drop 12″ /30cm (all measurements are approximate).
