The first cool tee of the year is the Bauhaus tee from Free clothing company. Its abstract, its artistic, its simple and its grey. Whats not to love?

Isn’t she lovely? Urbanknit customers are just so gorgeous. The lovely Miss O rocking her Ankara peplum top on a night out. Love it!

Please share your pics of you wearing your ‪#‎urbanknit‬ pieces and tag us. We’d love to see them.

Here’s to a wonderful 2016. The year where dreams will come true.

After the popularity of the first African print snood, I decided to try it in a different colour combination and I think it works quite well. This version is bolder and brighter for those who want to add colour to their winter outfits. This one is made in a blue and orange Ankara print fabric and combined with a dark blue fleece.

So you now have a choice of a more muted version of the African print snood or a brighter more colourful version.

I am thinking of making a third version in a palette of pale greys with a touch of yellow.

Which would you rock?

Now this would be one cool selfie, don’t you think?

This week we have a white tee from Urban Outfitters. Not quite the classic white but definitely a lot of fun.

Designed by the brand Chunk who have an amazing collection of quirky and cool graphic tees. Check them out.


With Christmas only 4 weekends away, people are either thinking about what presents to buy or how to make some quick money, luckily we are holding a Winter Fair which will help arts and crafts lovers in either of these situations.

This winter season, we’ve gone BIG! Our new wool mix scarves are big and chunky. Perfect for keeping out those chilly winds. You can choose between a Grey, Blue or Green oversized scarf. They are all made with 100% merino wool which is soft and warm.

In addition, each scarf has hints of a different colour woven in, for that added sense of volume and texture. Check out the images below. For example, the grey version has hints of cream and pink. The green has a bit of red and blue and so on.

We’ve got a brand new accessory for you this season. The new Ankara snood scarf combines a funky African print fabric on one side and a soft fleece on the other. Who says winter has to be filled with boring block colours. This new scarf will inject the much needed colour into the dreary winter months and the soft fleece will keep you nice and warm at the same time.


You can wear it in many ways; on the fleece side, the fabric side, as one loop, as two loops. Under your coat or jacket or above it. You choose your own style!

In terms of dressing for the winter season, I am completely sold on what I call Oversized fashion. I keep coming across gorgeous images of sumptuous knits, large camel coats, blanket scarves and the like. They look so cosy and comfortable and cool!

I think the beauty of this look is in layering. You can add and subtract pieces until you achieve your desired look. The key is in keeping the rest of the elements of your outfit relatively standard in size in order to get a nice contrast to the look. For example, a large scarf and a big cardigan could be combined with a crisp tailored shirt and fitted jeans.

Check out some styling ideas from the cool looks and pieces below.


Stylish and comfortable, what’s not to love about this look?  Are you a fan of Oversized fashion?
