Boho's Back!

By Tamara Corin, April 24, 2015

Reshaping the looks from the ’60s and ’70s, fashion takes a modern turn with paisley prints and fluid textures with a strong hippy spirit — but minus the peace sign!

Think of a grown-up Sienna Miller with her tousled beach hair swapped to the more recent style, a textured bob, or Nicole Richie in her fashion heyday, all flowing maxi dresses and headscarves framing a tiny face.

By Tamara Corin, April 8, 2015

Although I haven't quite reached the “big 40” mark, I’m not too far behind! Wrinkles and fine lines have become my new obsession.

Slacks with attitude

By Tamara Corin, April 2, 2015

Tailored, refined and ladylike dressing is often associated with dresses and skirts, but this season, trousers are the big news in fashion, spotted on spring/summer 2015 catwalks at Victoria Beckham, Mulberry and more.

There are two pant styles - culottes versus cropped - that are creating headlines, it's just about deciding which one to choose and knowing how to wear them.

The neutraliser

By Tamara Corin, March 12, 2015

Beige, cream, stone, aka the parev shades of the colour spectrum, have never really had much of a powerful feel until now. Long gone are the days that neutrals are chosen simply for easy colour matching. This season, fashion draws back to its simplistic and rawest form. Think ballet-dancer nude shades with just the right amount of flesh tones that stops your complexion looking cold and deathly.

Life in print

By Tamara Corin, February 5, 2015

Retro prints, clash of colours and bold graphics get this year off to a bright start. Steer yourself away from your usual muted palette and wake up both your wardrobe and your mood with this season's explosion of print. Offset rainbow hues with denim for a played-down look or go all out and mix and match your prints with your colours.
