With a new year on the horizon, product developers and beauty brands continue to up their game while the wows of 2015 are still very much present and well worth the purchase.

Power party dressing

By Tamara Corin, December 10, 2015

A man in a black tuxedo jacket has always had a smart and alluring look, but a woman dressed in one makes men (and women) turn heads. The trend that was born on the Yves Saint Laurent catwalk in 1966, made "smoking jackets" sharp yet discreetly sexy too. It was an iconic look that rocked the fashion world and has been interpreted ever since by Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren among other top designers.

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.
