Front row: Transformer trousers
I’m obsessed with… Me+Em Transformer Trousers
Two pairs of trousers for the price of one? I’m sold. Me + Em, one of my top brands for on-trend wardrobe solutions, has just launched a range of ‘transformer’ trousers, featuring pairs that you can wear full-length or cropped (simply fold up the hems and fasten the studs for a turn-up) and another that can go from a wide-cut leg to narrow (button up the fastening at the ankle to taper in seconds).
They’re ideal for the transitional weather – and anyone as indecisive as me. After being tried and tested by the YOU fashion team, we all asked: why hasn’t anyone thought of them before?

It’s round two for your Toast favourites
Don’t go throwing away those worn and torn Toast favourites just yet… If you love the brand as much as we do and have some cherished items that have seen better days, you can now head in store to have them made as good as new.

In a bid to reduce waste, Molly Martin, a textile artist who uses traditional Japanese sashiko stitching techniques, will be visiting Toast shops around the UK until October to show you repair techniques (or if you book an appointment, Molly will mend your garments for you). Don’t worry if you miss out this time, the brand is planning to introduce in-store repairs as a permanent feature. To find out when Molly will be in your nearest store, visit toa.st/uk/content/features/sashikorepair.htm
