Prince Harry @ 30: A life in style

•••
As HRH Prince Harry turns 30 today, we look back at how the royal redhead's style has transitioned from cherub-faced youngster and boy of Eton and philanthropy, to stylish man about world. Apparently, there was no big bash to date to commemorate the milestone, as Harry's planned party was cancelled due to sister-in-law Kate's severe morning sickness. He had[...]

Steal Her Style: Amal Alamuddin

•••
Immaculately groomed and wildly accomplished, the very soon-to-be Mrs Clooney, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, was spotted out in London in this stylishly autumnal biker-chic look.  Tough-luxe, gritty glamour is an aesthetic that always holds a place in the heart of every fashionista, and Amal is no different. Taking a break from her usual smart ladyl[...]

Debs @ #LFW

•••
So it's here - and so are we. When we first fell out of our beds this morning we weren't exactly impressed at the sight that greeted us; grey clouds and the promise of rain. But the lure of previewing the SS15 collections more than helped give us that little extra push away from a lazy Saturday at home (it is National Bed month, after all) to the hub of beau[...]

Designers at Debenhams: Happy 21st Birthday

•••
    As we get ready to celebrate the 21st anniversary of Designers at Debenhams - the first collaboration began in autumn 1993 - we got to thinking about what makes our designer collaborations so unique. Is it simply high-end quality at high-street prices, or is there more to it? (There's more to it.) Read on to discover how our designer coll[...]

Dress Like a Bullingdon Boy

•••
If you've not yet heard, the upcoming film The Riot Club  (based on the real-life hedonistic Bullingdon Club which David Cameron and Boris Johnson were members of) promises to be a who's-who of handsome British faces as well as a masterclass in formalwear. Hate it or love it, the Bullingdon boys' impossibly dapper outfits have inspired a new level of smart. [...]

Red Alert for the New Season

•••
  Vamp up your look this AW14 with a splash of red - the go-to way to brighten up your wardrobe and go for bold in the style stakes. Seen at the shows of Victoria Beckham, Moschino, Chloe and Victor & Rolf couture - to name a few - red is clearly a shade to invest in. Whether you opt for a simple statement accessory or a head-to-toe working of[...]

How to get snapped at LFW...

•••
With London Fashion Week starting this Friday, September 12, we're excited for a bevy of reasons. For general fashion industry action, for the spring/summer shows of our own Designers at Debenhams, and for photo ops. Yes - admittedly, everyone loves a street style cred (even model Elena Perminova, pictured above). Here's how to get one.  Street style phot[...]

Ben de Lisi: The Interview

•••
The name Ben de Lisi is synonymous with elegant, sophisticated fashion. A long-standing member of the Designers at Debenhams portfolio, many a style-savvy shopper has come to rely on the modern-day chic of his Principles by Ben de Lisi range. A New Yorker in London, Ben arrived from the Big Apple back in 1982, intent on learning his craft. Two years later[...]

Steal Her Style: Sarah Paulson

•••
Arriving at the 2014 Gracie Awards for women in media, American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson looked nothing short of ravishing in an off-the-shoulder floral cocktail dress. Ladylike off-the shoulder dresses have made a surprising but welcome comeback this past season, and those in the know have brought this look right up to date with neutral mak[...]

AW14 Must-Have: The Blanket Coat

•••
If you haven't seen Cara & co. sporting their own monogrammed versions of late, then we have to ask whether you've been hiding under a blanket, as opposed to wearing one - which you should be this AW14. Take if from us; the blanket is big for autumn. A perfect transitional piece, glam it up with a beautiful dress (as seen on the catwalk at Burberr[...]
