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.

It's a hat trick

By Tamara Corin, September 10, 2015

It used to be all about showcasing the new trends for the High Holy Days, but with Britain's erratic weather and the chance of blazing sunshine just as likely as a freezing cold day, advance planning for what outfit to wear in shul is tricky - so it makes sense to focus on our headgear.
