Snug Life: Stay Warm, Look Cool

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

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

Making the Case: The Bootcut Jean

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.đŸ’ȘA little bit hippy, a little bit boho, with a touch of Western influence (think

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

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?

How To Wear: The Floral Print Maxi Dress

Mark-Francis, look away now. Floral prints in spring is pretty much a given. And although sometimes we agree with Miranda Priestly on this one, we just can’t resist a pretty floral print dress. They’re just so pretty! And versatile! Garden parties, casual lunch, something more formal. Really, when you think about it, they are a very practical fashion buy… Oh, we can talk ourselves into any fashion purchase. This season,

The 5 Spring Trends You Need To Know, Now

Spring does not necessarily mean florals. Miranda Priestly will be relieved. And you know what, so are we. We love a good floral print and goodness knows we need a little colour in our lives right now (you watch the news, right?) so we get it. Florals are fun. But yeah, they ain’t groundbreaking. So, meet the five spring trends that we are all over, so much so we may

Caped Crusader

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly might just spring to mind when you throw on a poncho (if Margaret has anything to do with it!) but push past the Man with No Name aka Clint and picture Alexa, or Cara, or SJP. I mean, isn’t that enough fashion credentials right there? By the way, is it a cape or a poncho? You see, a cape is sort of like

How To: Model Off-Duty

When they’re not strutting down the runway, models are just like us. Um, no, not at all actually, but they do prefer to trade couture for laid-back looks when off-duty. So, next time you are having one of those mornings, you know the sort, you’re late, you’ve absolutely nothing to wear, the wardrobe is so crammed you just can’t see, you can’t see anything, think “off-duty-model”. It’s not rubbing salt

Earn Your Stripes

Stripes. Again. You know it’s spring when you fancy sporting a stripe. I mean, it’s no secret that we love the Breton and thankfully, the fashion gods seem to approve the stripe season after season. Amen to that. Scroll down for a street style master class in stripes, and then, shop our edit.  Style Notes: A classic trench and a Breton top is a match made in heaven. No better example or
