Fashion is constantly evolving, with the raising and lowering of heels and hemlines, colour-blocking, print on print and the bag of the season, it’s easy to get a little lost in trends. That's why we’re going back to the basics with some of our favourites from DFO Brisbane. Bargain buys are always on-trend.
