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 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.
Whether you’re a mum on the school run kitted out in gym gear or a jeans-and-top-combo kinda gal, here are some alternative wardrobe essentials for the new term. They are timeless, practical, stylish and, best of all, take little effort to sling on at the crack of dawn.
It's that time of the year - summer is coming to an end, the chagim are just around the corner and a new academic year is about to begin. In fashion and beauty terms this means change, and a good one at that. Here's our favourite finds that will lift your post-summer mood in no time at all.
