Spring 2013 Trend report

To those of us in the Southern hemisphere warm weather may seem like a distant dream.

And so, without further ado, I bring you a [...]

Spring to Summer Wardrobe

It’s the bane of our lives. The conversation that is statistically the most talked about topic amongst people in this country and one that causes us to be ridiculed by other, more fortunate sun-blessed countries. Of course, I am referring to the not so great, British weather. Annoyances related to this include; the embarrassing moment [...]

Minimalist Strappy Sandals

Spring/Summer 2012 brings many delicious footwear styles, the minimalist strappy sandal being one of them.  It’s a delicate choice, a way to keep a busy outfit balanced or simply a way to add femininity.  The styles below are similar to the ones worn by Rihanna during the Battleship premiere in Australia, but each carries its [...]

Bold Prints For Summer Holidays

There is a lot of print around this season, from delicate, barely-there prints to bold in your face designs. Celebrities such as Florence Welch and Rihanna have really rocked this look recently but if it’s not your style to be quite so brash, you can infuse your outfits with as little print as you desire. [...]

Spring Clean Your Style

As usual our eccentric English weather has surprised us with an unexpected dose of early spring weather. So if you’re clambering through your wardrobe searching for something that isn’t a) black, or b) of the chunky knit variety, or you’re hiking up the high street in search of something that little bit more inspiring – [...]

Colour Me Cute

Casual Clothing

T-shirts are such a great wardrobe staple.  You can dress them up somewhat and you can certainly dress them down.  They look fantastic with jeans and shorts, trousers and skirts, with braces and with a cardigan.  Effortless chic when combined with some nice skinny jeans, sunglasses and a scarf around the head or neck.   [...]

Summery Shorts for SS12

Whilst black is beautiful, one can’t help but look forward to the uplifting hues that go hand in hand with the long, bright days.  Whilst some of these bottom-skimming shorts may be a step too far for some of you, we’ve picked some slightly longer ones too.  However, there aren’t many reasonably priced feminine, summery shorts [...]

Fashion Sudoku: Black and Metallic

Clash Your Heart Out

This is a season for the bold, the brave and the somewhat mentally unstable.  Clashing of prints, fabrics and colours are all huge during Autumn/Winter 2011-12 which means you can have a whole lot of fun throwing fashions together which previously would have been considered mismatched.   Lace with cord, star prints with jewel embellishments, [...]

Menswear for Women

I have often thought to myself, “Why do the men’s section have better clothes than the women’s?”  Admittedly I haven’t been able to resist the charm of their departments and have over the past ten years found myself buying an item or two out of the men’s and young boys sections.   Sometimes fashion is [...]
