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,

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

Coachella 2017

So, without fail, Alessandra Ambrosio is once again at Coachella. It’s like she’s the new Heidi Klum. Sorry, sorry, we don’t mean it really. We’re just, you know, bitter that we weren’t there. Okay, the grey skies are getting to us. I mean, it’s April! Late April. *sob* So, to rub salt in the wound, we have rounded up the best festival looks from the first weekend of Coachella, what

A Different Take on Stripes

Spring = Stripes. It’s just how the story goes. But this season, we’re busting out something a little more rock n’ roll and not as Beetlejuice-esque as you might think; striped trousers. Ah yes, unflattering we hear you say. Not so. Not with a wide, straight cut. Finish with a model-off-duty “half-tuck” or make like Vanessa Hudgens and wear a cropped, loose tee, and you have the look nailed. Think

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

Golden Globe Awards 2017: The Best Red Carpet Style

In the words of Maeve, “fashion police, assemble!” Ah yes, it’s that time of the year again, just when we’re down in the dumps, deep in post-holiday January blues and with resolutions failing fast, we can finally pass judgement on those privileged enough to walk the red carpet. No shame here folks, we will ‘ooh’, ‘aah’ and ‘nah’ all we want. While the Golden Globe Awards are considered by many

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 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 well

How To: The Art of Hygge

The French would say ” la vie est pleine de petits bonheurs”, the Danes call it “hygge.” Whatever, it’s not a competition, but they are doing their very best to tear me away from my adoration of France. Francophile or not, I can still appreciate the easy, “hygge” way of going. Even it doesn’t roll off the tongue just as easily – “hoo-ga” in case you were wondering. I think. To

Trending Now: The Floral Bomber Jacket

The one-time 90’s favourite and go-to for tricky transeasonal dressing, the floral bomber jacket is certainly proving it’s worth this season. With pretty, botanical-inspired embroidery, the bomber also has a touch of the ‘borrowed-from-the-boys’ which means it really does tick all the boxes. This is how we like to style the floral bomber. Matchy matchy. Blame Margaret. As much as we love to pair the bomber with sneakers and skinny jeans (although, the

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
