Let's not skirt around this

October 14, 2010

Considering how irredeemably off-trend skirts were last winter - apart, of course, from the pencil skirt which has become a wardrobe classic - it is astonishing (or would be anywhere apart from the capricious world of fashion) that this year a skirt is one of the most sought-after garments.

This is partly down to the novelty factor. We have grown nostalgic for them, having worn mainly dresses and trousers for the past two winters.

A coat is not only one of the major investments of the winter, but - depending on its length and which trend it picks up on - it will also impact on many of your other fashion purchases.

London shows sheer style for spring 2011

By Jan Shure, September 28, 2010

It has been half a decade since Jaeger began its regeneration under boss Harold Tillman and in that time it has been transformed from a stodgy heritage brand, bought primarily by county types in pearls and Hunter wellies, to Jaeger London, a dazzling, iconic and perfectly on-trend British fashion label.
