The origins of the word cool…stated in Wikipedia as "aesthetic of attitude", somewhat predictably evolved in the 30’s during the jazz era. Sometimes, it’s a quality easy to describe, but sometimes verbally it’s too hard to define! In dress or fashion, it's perhaps the look of ‘meh’ I don’t care , but secretly I do, but it needs to look like I don’t…confused yet? BUT... there is the other meaning…temperature…so, whether you’re going back to cool, school or even Liverpool, perhaps it’s good to look at something for the plummeting temperatures AND raising of suave!


On the cheat sheet for looking cool, this would be at the top of the list, aged looking jeans, easy fresh shirt and a white jean jacket, oh...and don't forget the Converse. If the kicks are too casual, these jeans are excellent for either working in the garden or a casual weekend look, a change of footwear is all it takes! OR what could be cooler than one of the new Frida tops

While there are other denim cuts trending, there's still room for the skinny jeans. And if you haven't taken the plunge yet...give them a go. There's definitely a way to wear them that's not provocative. Just casual and uncomplicated, as know, like you'd like your life to be!

I actually don't care if this is cool or not, I think it's gorgeous. I love the flow and drape of the kimono; casual, exotic/boho. Yet another co-ordinate that flows from extremely casual, like breakfast on your patio to an evening on a restaurant patio. And it comes in two patterns, a lighter print that's perfect for now or the one above which is great well into fall!

This look definitely has that overt look of 'what you think of me, is none of my business'. Regardless, these cargos are so comfortable and very easy to match with other colours.

There's something very 'I Dream of Jeanie' about this, perhaps the ethereal nature of the silk fabric. It's really good to think ahead, be prepared for upcoming affairs...I!

Meo Meli silk over jersey slip dress (black, denim, blue or red) $119

I'm pretty sure I don't need to explain what cool is, either in attitude, dress or verbal skills. When you got it, you got it, when you don't... walk tall and pretend whatever it is you're wearing 'IS' the new trend. Because, frankly confidence is always cool!
