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[...]

The Appeal of the Kimono

•••
Why does a kimono look so fabulous? After all, in theory, a Japanese traditional garment worn with distressed jeans, a crop top and Birkenstocks doesn't sounds like a chic get-up. But chic it is. And it could be its very randomness that makes it so. Given its distinctive look and exotic origins, a gal wearing a kimono can't help but look mysterious. Othe[...]

The Bloomsbury Set

For those who imagine themselves something of an 'arty type', perhaps a blooming Virginia Woolf or a modern-day E. M. Forster, we suggest you embrace the style of the Bloomsbury set; a key home trend for AW14... A well-known group of esteemed writers, philosophers and artists, the Bloomsbury set were so-called due to the fact they all lived in the London [...]

AW14 Trend: Blue Notes

•••
Somewhere between blue's big debut at the shows in February and the onset of Indian summer, it became the new black. From cobalt to cerulean, and periwinkle to navy, a spectrum of modern, wearable blues have been popping up in every sartorial form. Although it’s not a hue that’s ever really out of style, this season’s statement-making head-to-toe blue loo[...]

This season take inspiration from the catwalk and create a variety of on-trend looks for your tresses. Straight Hair was a key look on the runway shows at Rochas, Tom Ford and Christian Dior.

The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens, after all... A few years back saw a huge surge in p[...]
