Five things you need to own NOW

It’s officially summer on Gimme Fashion and nothing says sunny days like your favourite denim jeans and a raffia bag casually slung over your shoulder and a sex-on-the-beach or other classic cocktail in the other. So here’s to some good vibes and pleasant nights.

the top

Preen/Debenhams is the hottest designer/ high street collaboration in town right now, featuring gorgeous gingham pieces and some pretty prarie blue tops and jackets. This striped cropped top is the pick of the bunch and despite its appearance here sits just above the waist rather than under the bust. So if you don’t have a solid six pack you can still partake.


Top, €58,

the jeans

Mom jeans are a fairly scary prospect if you’re not a midriff bearing millennial, however anything is possible if you find the perfect pair. The wash on this denim is equisitely 80s and the rips and patches bring the jeans right bang on trend. Also they sit nicely on the waist, so no unsightly bulges!

the earrings

Vivien Walsh does a beautiful line of drop earrings from semi precious stones. These gold plated beauties are made from sodalite stones (or the poet’s stone), is a gem which represents truth, logic, rationality, and efficiency. So if you are behind in your taxes just pop these babies on for inspiration. Its also said to be particularly useful for honesty in emotions and love.
