It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue

Pastels are a no-brainer come springtime, it’s almost as “groundbreaking” as florals, but let’s face it, even if you live in a sea of black or various shades of grey {the less cringy Dornan kind} admit it, you can’t help but like the odd shade of soft blush pink or pale baby blue. It’s okay. It’s a reprieve from the onslaught of bleak weather and snow {ugh, we are SO over

Guess Who’s Back?

One word: gingham. There are a few things we get really excited about at Harrison. First is coffee. Because, life. The second is new season arrivals. Once those collections drop, we are all “oohs” and “aahs” as if it were some kind of fashion firework display. The spring collections make us really, really happy. Because as much as we know the autumn collections are probably way more stylish and, well,

The Neckerchief: How To Wear Guide

There was a time when I would have associated the neckerchief with something my granny likely wore. Or maybe someone French. But, as I’ve gotten older, I am beginning to appreciate my granny’s style (I’m thirty – what does this mean?!) and I definitely appreciate all things French. Just take a look at my bookshelf. Madame Chic has made a fortune out of moi. What with it being that “meh”

New Year, New Outfit

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

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

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.💪A little bit hippy, a little bit boho, with a touch of Western influence (think

The Coat Vote

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

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.

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
