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 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

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

How To Wear The Embroidered Trend. Part Deux.

It’s no surprise given our recent blog post that we are all about the embroidered trend right now. If Olivia Palermo is on board, then so are we. But who says it’s just for denim? Well, we kinda did but then this arrived and behold, the most amazing trans-seasonal, on trend, actually kinda timeless little two in one number from Guess. Is it a jacket? Is it a shirt? Who

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,

Stitch It Up, Embroidered Denim

Embroidered denim is a huge trend right now (in case you didn’t know) and as much as we try not to buy too much into trends (it’s a Parisian timeless thing that we’re trying to achieve), we simply can’t resist the beautiful detailing. Those Gucci loafers sold the trend to us and that’s that. If OTT isn’t your thing and the bold embroidery is just too much, why not try

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
