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.

Make-up that can beat the heat

By Tamara Corin, August 14, 2015

Whatever the weather, make-up should stay put. But what works well in the winter is highly unlikely to work so well in the summer. Our environment has an extreme effect on our skin and therefore our make-up too.

As make-up should flatter and emphasise our best features while hiding any flaws, getting our cosmetics right is a must.

What to wear for a summer in the office

By Tamara Corin, August 6, 2015

Scorching temperatures are hard to deal with in the UK. It's not just our homes that are built to insulate; it's our wardrobes too.

Finding the right transitional pieces that will take you from home to your workplace under a scorching sun without you breaking out in a sweat is no easy task.

Get your rocks on

By Tamara Corin, July 30, 2015

A simple outfit can be transformed in a second by one of two things - great shoes or gorgeous jewellery. A flash of sparkle can deliver a polished and glamorous finish, whatever your style.

Aloha! Hawaiian prints herald summer

By Tamara Corin, July 21, 2015

The hawaiian print is back in fashion. Tropical designs have won massive style favour for the simple fact that they make us smile. They may conjure up memories of souvenir shops in far-off holiday destinations, but the loud Hawaiianesque print of vintage men's shirts has been revamped, for women's dresses, swimwear and even shoes.
