Choosing the right winter coat is a personal thing. You can buy into the reigning trend (this season it’s anything goes– yes, it is) or you can stick to something timeless that will take you seamlessly from season to season, year after year. Much as retailers (us included!) want you buying all year, every year, a winter coat is best selected with some care and consideration. It’s meant to be
Wanna know what you’ll be wearing all next season? Fashion stops for no-one and even though we may actually need to be wrestled from our puffer coat (no joke), spring collections are already arriving thick and fast and *gasp*, florals are making an appearance. But wait, it’s not just about florals, there are some stripes in there too but not as we normally know them. As we approach the new
Is it even December without a scattering of shiny sequins and an awkward office party? After last year’s mini-meltdown, we planned our party season outfits ahead to avoid any hissy-fits. That way we can spend more time sippin’ champs. Win win. Prefer velvet over sequins? Yeah, this season is a close call. Once upon a time, we were firm believers that all that glitters is gold and absolutely worth wearing but now,
Three winters ago, I succumbed to the puffer jacket. I had dug my heels in long enough, but you know when you’re ankle deep in snow, you really have no other alternative. Except for maybe hypothermia. The puffer screamed “giving up” to me. It was ‘mumsie’, a bit of a fashion no-no really. Oh, how wrong I was. It’s like being wrapped in a great big duvet. Statement coats are
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
All hail the return of the bootcut jean. They’ve made a comeback even Mariah Carey would be proud of. And they’re way more flattering than the skinny jean. Trust us. Totally retro and a sure fire way of slimming those thighs without having to ditch the donut. Hallelujah! This time the look is stronger than ever.💪A little bit hippy, a little bit boho, with a touch of Western influence (think
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 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.
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?
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
