The future's here ... and it's orange

By Jan Shure, May 13, 2011

It is, let us be frank, the Cinderella of colours. If this colour was an act, it is the one not even Michael McIntyre could bring himself to vote for. It is the shade most frequently found on the sale rails alongside egg-yolk yellow.

Surely, the only way is Chessex

May 6, 2011

They may come from Chelsea but they don't wear Boden. And they may come from Essex, but they take their holidays in Barbados and the British Virgin Islands and shop in Harvey Nichols.

Recognise her? Yes, Chelsea Girl is back

By Jan Shure, May 4, 2011

River Island's raid on its own fashion back catalogue to create their heritage Chelsea Girl collection was perfectly timed. With all things 1970s as one of the strongest trends for this season, the slogan T-shirts, floral maxis, wide-leg trousers, floaty florals and A-line skirts which were mainstays of the Chelsea Girl vibe are now totally topical.

Whatever you are trending, the perfect way to pep up your spring wardrobe is a bold cuff, brilliant necklace or gobsmacking ring.

Heading for a long summer

By Jan Shure, April 14, 2011

Please pay attention at the back, especially the fashion professionals (PRs and retailers, that means you) skulking out of earshot and confusing consumers by describing long evening dresses as "maxi dresses".

Hats off to a spot of nostalgia

By Jan Shure, April 7, 2011

It is immaterial whether you are buying a hat for Pesach, for a simchah, for a visit to Ladies Day or even; Lady Sacks, for that wedding, millinery this season is again all about nostalgia. And the prettiest and most alluring are inspired by the 1920s and the late 1950s/early '60s, two eras placed firmly in the fashion spotlight by the hit TV dramas Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men.

How to work the trends for yomtov

By Jan Shure, April 1, 2011

It has to be admitted that several of spring/summer's trends may not be the most appropriate when it comes to dressing for shul this Pesach, or for formal events like weddings, bar/batmitzvahs and Royal Ascot. Head-to-toe denim, slouchy trousers, jumpsuits and shorts all come to mind.

But several of spring's key trends, happily, will work when a bit of glamorous formality is required.

Get ahead of the curve

By Jan Shure, March 28, 2011

There's good news and even better news if you are a curvy girl - if you wear size 16 or above, that is - and you want to replenish your spring/summer wardrobe.The good news is that plus-size clothing has, to a major extent, lost its ghettoisation - at least for those seeking up to‑ size 20 - with many high street brands now routinely offering their entire collections up to size 18.

This is the big spring cover story

By Jan Shure, March 16, 2011

Last spring, there were few coat dilemmas: the trench coat ruled. All we were required to do was choose the length (mini, knee-length or cropped) and we were sorted. End of... But this spring doubts are popping up like crocuses over what is the definitive spring cover-up.
