The New Denim Rules

•••
Forget everything you know about denim because it’s time to rip up the rule book and get creative. At the SS15 catwalk shows designers experimented with new and inventive ways to wear denim. We’re talking patchwork, creative embellishments, modern silhouettes, as well as a flashback to the 70s with the return of the flare. However you decide to wear t[...]

Sugar Rush: Pastels

•••
A firm favourite every spring, pretty pastel hues instantly have us dreaming of the long summer days that lie ahead. From candyfloss pink to baby blue, buttermilk yellow to the softest lilac, we’re sprucing up our spring wardrobes with delicious sorbet shades that look good enough to eat. Could it be the longest love affair in fashion history? It seems de[...]

As the weather started to cool down in October, we were intrigued to see how the A-listers would adapt to the chill and we weren’t disappointed. We round up some of our favourite dressed up and dressed down looks from the last three months of 2014 and we think they really did leave the best to last… October Dressed Up From left: Blake Lively, Lily A[...]

Best Dressed of 2014: Part 3

•••
During the summer months of 2014 it wasn't just the weather that was hotting up, but the fashion too. With events such as the Serpentine Summer Party and the International Fashion Weeks taking place, the stars pulled out all the stops in the style stakes.  We round up some of our favourite dressed up and dressed down looks from the summertime. July Dres[...]

Lady in Red

•••
Forget about fashion. Red, sophisticated yet brazen, eternal symbol of love and power, is always de rigueur for those very special occasions.  Everyone has a power dress. The one dress you go to for all those challenging moments when you feel you need some armour. Mine - and I would wager many women's - is red. A scarlet red, short-sleeved sheath with a f[...]

Wear the LBD, Let People See You

•••
In honour of Black Friday, we look to an iconic piece that’s synonymous with fashion itself: the little black dress.  So much has been said about the ubiquitous LBD.  It’s elegant. Timeless. Chic. It’s an essential. The fashion mainstay certainly has an interesting history – from that pivotal moment in 1926 when “Chanel’s Ford” was published in American V[...]

Editor's Debrief: Love Colour, Be Happy

•••
  I have a pet hate around this time of year, and that is people asking me the question: “Aren’t you cold, wearing only that?” No. I’m not. Given I’m wearing a thick winter coat, a midi-length dress (with sleeves I hasten to add), combined with tights, and shoes that cover my heels and toes, might I please ask you the question, “Why do you think I wo[...]

Happy Feet

•••
Hooray! Flats are back and we couldn’t be happier, but we’re not talking your usual, mediocre flats; today’s styles are nothing short of fabulous. We've got the lowdown… As designers continue to embrace ‘real’ clothes, they’ve also come to understand the needs of the busy working woman – someone who, quite simply, wants to get things done. Step forward th[...]

Faux Fabulous

•••
Somebody call the fuzz. It’s not just faux fur coats that are big news this autumn/winter as luxurious touch-me textures feel their way into the accessory arena too. Brought to our attention by labels such as Shrimps and Ruby + Ed, faux fur is definitely having a moment and has seen its popularity propelled recently with the help of an extensive celebrity[...]

Steal Her Style: Alexa Chung

•••
Since she was scouted aged sixteen, Alexa Chung has become one of our favourite style icons. She has won the British Style Award an incredible four times and even has a Mulberry bag named after her- that's what you call fashion credentials.  As she turned thirty-one earlier this week we decided to celebrate her birthday by looking back to one of our favou[...]
