It's time for some winter white

By Tamara Corin, November 19, 2015

No longer just a colour set aside for breezy sundresses, white continues its reign into the colder months too with winter whites taking control of our wardrobes. Whether you wear yours with daytime denim or integrate it with splashes of black, navy, gold or grey, white is the cleaner, fresher-looking hue that will brighten both your style and your mood.

Warm up your wardrobe with new season knitwear

By Tamara Corin, November 12, 2015

Knitwear is soon to replace lightweight fabrics to ensure you're wrapped up for the cold. This season, it's not simply about your jumper but the whole ensemble. Knitwear is literally creeping down our legs with skirts, trousers, dresses and even jumpsuits all making an appearance to ensure there's no space for any draughts.

Geometry lesson

By Tamara Corin, November 5, 2015

Maths has never been one of my strong points, but when it collides with fashion, I somehow manage to work out my style equations. With designers currently reaching dizzy heights with zigzags, stripes and patterns aplenty, it's hard not to get carried away with a print or 10.

Get your beauty sleep

By Tamara Corin, October 29, 2015

Do you spend the night tossing and turning and remain wide-eyed? If you do, then chances are you're sleep deprived. Experts estimate one third of us do not get the shut-eye we need to stay on the ball.

Bootilicious

By Tamara Corin, October 21, 2015

Boots and winter go hand-in-hand. It’s almost a compulsory fashion rule that you buy a new pair of boots every winter. This isn’t just me making an excuse to enrich my wardrobe with burgundy bikers and 70s suede tassels.

Highland fling

By Tamara Corin, October 15, 2015

There are some fabrics and prints that just keep on giving whatever the era, and tartan is most definitely one of them. Wide or narrow checks in rich hues that give a nod to our Scottish sisters and the heritage that surrounds them are abundant this winter.

The caped crusaders

By Tamara Corin, October 8, 2015

Capes are odd items of clothing. They don't give you the warmth of a coat but are heavier than a jacket, plus they expose your arms to the cold. Although the cape is probably high up on the list of impractical fashion, their style and elegance, still makes them desirable.

Well-suited: office-inspired fashion

By Tamara Corin, October 1, 2015

The two-piece was replaced long ago with pretty dresses and high-fashion twists on the usual stark and safe Reiss-like suit. Now, this much-loved combo is making a comeback - but not as we know it. Softer tones and fluid fabrics make this look less harsh and more feminine while scarlet reds, dove greys, mustard yellows and prints bring a sense of fun to the usual black and navy hues of the past.

Hell for leather

By Tamara Corin, September 24, 2015

I have made a brave decision this season - I am going to part with my well-loved but worn out leather biker jacket. With an obvious tear down the front (don't ask!) I've realised my jacket is looking more tatty than grunge and more cheap than expensive.
