Shore thing

By Tamara Corin, May 26, 2016

Whether it's royal or cornflower, blue is the favourite colour of choice for the fashion set. Add a classic Breton stripe and you're cruise ready. Think by-the-sea dressing with an old fashioned twist in blue and white hues. The look is tailored yet soft on the eye with "forever" pieces that will add to your wardrobe. It's French Riviera elegance that you can take to any sunny destination.

Shining example

By Tamara Corin, May 19, 2016

Metallics have a bad reputation in the fashion world. They're seen as limiting shiny reflective hues that are worn for evening events only and don't flatter any figure above a size 8. However, if you look in high street stores, you'll agree this couldn't be further from the truth.

Lost in lace

By Tamara Corin, May 13, 2016

It all began with several celebrities being papped in the latest must-have designer label, Self-Portrait. Though the fuss of a chunky crochet and flash of flesh has died down, it's left a host of high-street stores tapping into the sexy yet elegant way to dress for occasions.

Darling buds of May

By Tamara Corin, May 6, 2016

It's no surprise that a hot favourite trend for spring is florals. It might seem boring or even obvious that a change of season and a rise in temperature would bring a softer vibe in the form of a floral print. But it works time and time again.

Slam-dunk style

By Tamara Corin, April 27, 2016

We're all doing it in some way or another. I'm referring to the Deliciously Ella-esque women who are embracing everything healthy. Whether we're spinning until our legs can no longer move, juicing up our morning green smoothie or following the Hemsley sisters's every move. We've become a nation obsessed with all things healthy, fresh and raw.

It's time to sail away from the classic Breton stripe. This season we're celebrating the power of stripes but in its most modern form. Stripes are colourful and bold and are moving in all directions. It's a look that has always worked in fashion and keeps on giving whether you're dressed for day or night.

Hot foot it

By Tamara Corin, March 23, 2016

When a celebrity with as much influence on fashion as Victoria Beckham ditches her high heels for comfortable flats, it gives us normal folk the seal of approval to wear trainers in place of skyscrapers. And how grateful we are too. Years of balancing, sore feet and too many blisters to count, may now have come to a close.

Pyjama party

By Tamara Corin, March 10, 2016

It's not often I will allocate space to write about a trend that is so fashion (darling!) that you need to be in the business to pull it off, but outdoor boudoir elegance is huge this season and can't go unnoticed. I have found a short cut that works and ensures you can carry off the look whatever your lifestyle. Your main aim is to try to avoid looking like you did when you rolled out of bed.
