This season we see a revival of the stripe, and a rebirth of the spot. Both were on parade at the spring-summer 2015 catwalks in a barrage of geometrics and colour blocking, vertical, horizontal, round and bold. Expect to reach dizzy heights. Which one will you pick?
Once the sale racks are emptied, Spring fever will soon be upon us with a new collection of clothes to get you set for the warmer months ahead. Bag a bargain now and get up to speed with the looks that are here to stay. Minimal fuss, maximum impact. Here's how:
A face exfoliator is nothing new, it was the buzz-word of nineties skincare and still remains the most effective way of polishing your skin. Surprisingly, however, according to Mintel's 2014 skincare report, a mere 39 per cent of women regularly use a facial exfoliator.
It may take you back to a 70s disco vibe but in fact velvet is having a fashion comeback for day and night. The difference? Brushed not crushed is on trend with an air of ladylike luxe and timeless elegance adorned on clothes, bags, shoes and even accessories.
Chanucah, Christmas, Chrismacah, whatever holiday you choose to celebrate, it's all about giving (and receiving). Here's our best buys for the whole family plus some self-gifting treats that anyone who has braved the crowds thoroughly deserves.
Turn up the heat by adding a shot of red to your usual muted wardrobe. Crimson, ruby and pillarbox hues make a bold statement this season. As seen at Valentino, Matthew Williamson and Jonathan Saunders. This look is passionate, heated and sexy and ensures you stand out from the pack. Team with 60's monochrome or dark navy. For a modern colour-block finish, clash with hot pinks and bright yellows.
