The Haute Ticket

Musings of the fashion and beauty kind, with a little travel thrown in.

Velvet Crush

Give me all the velvet, right now. It’s because I’m a nineties child. That’s why I’m so obsessed. Thank goodness it’s now completely acceptable to wear it head to toe without looking like Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen (remember him?). We like to think, should we fully embrace velvet, that we’re more onto Gwyneth Paltrow circa 1996 in that lush red Tom Ford trouser suit. Anyway, a velvet blazer is the ultimate finishing touch to

The Little Tweed Dress

It’s no secret that we absolutely love all things Chanel-esque. So you can imagine our excitement when this little Benetton number landed in amongst this week’s newest arrivals. Cue screaming and lots of arm flapping. Not only is this workwear appropriate, but it’s super sweet with ankle boots and a more dressed-down approach. But for full-on Chanel – because that is never not a good look – we suggest adding

Oh, For Pleat’s Sake

The pleated midi skirt has been much debated, chez Harrison. Is it really flattering? Or is it, well, granny-ish? Well now, to be fair, sometimes we do love a bit of granny look. But rest assured, the pleated midi skirt – your wardrobe must-have as you shall see – does not, repeat, does not fall into ‘granny-ish’ territory. For a start, let’s look at exhibit a.   See? So chic.

It Takes Two: Most Stylish Celebrity Couples

We don’t know what notion we’ve taken. It’s not like it’s Valentine’s Day or anything, but we suddenly felt a little nostalgic for that time that Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift strolled through Central Park sipping lattes and Taylor wore a duffle coat and Jake looked so happy. Oh Taylor, look what you made us do? This led us down the rabbit hole. Johnny and Kate? Or Johnny and Winona?

Emmy Awards 2017 Best Red Carpet Style

This year’s Emmy Awards (the Oscars equivalent of television, FYI) saw women front and center (and rightly so) with The Handmaid’s Tale and Big Little Lies the main winners. But enough of the actual point of the show, let’s get down to the best red carpet style and our favorite beauty looks from the night. Elisabeth Moss at the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards wearing Prabal Gurung.   Reese Witherspoon suited

New York, New York

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, not Christmas. New York Fashion Week, silly! Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week. Carrie Bradshaw But before we even begin to discuss our most favourite looks from the runway (and the front row) what would NYFW be without Ralph Lauren? As is tradition, Margaret

The Art of The Black Cashmere Jumper

We’re finally reading ‘Spark Joy’ by Marie Kondo (the only thing we could get on board with during that awful Gilmore Girls revival). Albeit, we’re fashionably late to the party. But you see, we’ve read Parisian Chic, we’ve read The Curated Closet. French Lessons from Madame Chic? Yeah, we’ve had them. In fact, we’re so busy reading all about perfecting the ultimate capsule wardrobe, that we don’t ever actually get round

Mademoiselle Chenille

Who needs Chanel when you can have chenille? Okay, just a little exaggeration there. If anyone wants to give us a Chanel anything, we’ll take it. But let’s take a look at the oh-so-soft, so snuggly, so slouchy chenille jumper, shall we? It’s probably something Karl Lagerfeld would find hideous. It may verge on ‘loungewear’ and we all know how he feels about jogging pants. But oh my is it

Copper Coin

Pantone who? We’re calling this season’s must-have colour and it’s this, we’ve coined it ‘copper coin’.🍂 Well actually French Connection did that. But trust us, copper is the must-have colour and don’t let anyone tell you different. It could well be called pumpkin or indeed burnt orange, but we prefer copper coin. For alliteration’s sake. If this particular shade doesn’t have you lusting for crunchy coloured leaves, cups of tea and

Glastonbury 2017 Best Dressed

We have a confession to make. As much as we talk about festival fashion and occasionally look a little like we’re going to one (albeit without the wellies, but some of us do live in band tees) we don’t actually do festivals. And certainly not Glastonbury which would appear to equal a mud bath. Maybe it’s the camping aspect? Is there a blow dry bar? A guarantee for good weather?
