I Just Created My 5 Dream Spring Outfits From NET-A-PORTER

One of my favourite pastimes on an average grey Monday (or Wednesday or Friday) afternoon has to be scrolling through NET-A-PORTER's new-in section and mentally compiling my dream outfits. Judge me if you will, but really it's part of my job description to be on top of these things. Let's just call it research—I do anyway. Plus, I have found that there's nothing quite like a beautiful design to help one escape the mundanity and slipper-clad reality of lockdown life.With temperatures offering us a snapshot of spring this week, my mind has wandered to light layers, throw-on jackets, and easy pairings that will, fingers-crossed, help me celebrate my return to the real world at the end of April. My colour spectrum for spring 2021 has an inkling of the beiges and browns that dominated the ma...

Andra Day Portrays Music Legend Billie Holiday in Spot-On Outfits – The Photos Are Mesmerizing

Costume designer Paolo Nieddu, who is known for his work on the Sex and the City films along with TV series Empire, had just eight weeks to prep the wardrobe Andra Day would wear to play music legend Billie Holiday in The United States Vs. Billie Holiday. Directed by Lee Daniels, the movie follows Holiday's life and career, specifically highlighting how her song "Strange Fruit" helped advocate for the Black community in the '50s. Paolo's talent becomes clear the moment you see Day's portrayal of Billie. The clothing helps her transform, and she helps the clothing shine, or, as Paolo describes it, "one hand washes the other." Paolo did custom create many of Andra's looks based directly on old photos he found of Billie, but there were other moving parts. He leaned on old friends in the i...

Everything We Know About Tina Fey's Golden Globes Hosting Outfit(s), Straight From Her Stylist

The 2021 Golden Globes mark the fourth time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will come together for their award-season hosting gig. (The actors and comedians also shared the stage in 2013, 2014, and 2015.) On Sunday, Amy will be on the West Coast, while Tina will be on the East Coast, but no matter how many states separate these two, they're always a hoot. We talked to Tina's longtime stylist Cristina Ehrlich about how she's creating virtual looks for the event and what it's been like to carve out wardrobes for her clients in general since the start of the pandemic. "Everything all comes together at the last minute! I've been doing this for years, but each styling project I work on is completely different depending on the event and the client's personal style. This year, I'm hosting fittings a...

8 Spring Outfits Industry Insiders Are Wearing At Home

In a few weeks' time, we're set to hit the one year anniversary of the UK's first national lockdown. For many of us, that means we will have been working from home for an entire 12 months and while I call myself a fashion editor, I have to admit even I'm running out of interesting ideas for how to get dressed each morning. In desperate need of fresh WFH outfit inspiration, I decided to turn to some of the most fashionable women in the industry, tapping into the minds (and wardrobes) of stylists and fashion buyers from brands including Harrods, NET-A-PORTER, mytheresa.com, Browns and more. Having asked eight stylish women exactly what they're wearing at home, I discovered they all unanimously agree, there is just no substitute for comfort right now. Whether it's throwing on a cosy knit, ...

All I Can Think About Is Summer—So I've Found 13 Outfits I Love

I don't know about you, but the announcement this week about the road map for easing restrictions has meant that all I can think about is summer. If like me you're dreaming of afternoons in beer gardens and summer parties with friends, then you might already be searching for the perfect summer outfits for our return to socialising. I for one bought a pair of sandals and a summer cotton dress within hours of the proposal for a restriction-free summer come July. Sometimes, summer outfits need to be straightforward and simple to assemble, with just a flourish of a key accessory or subtle injection of a new styling move, and sometimes—because the UK's climate is so unpredictable—the layering and construction will be more demanding. (We've supplied the more advanced levels, of course.)So wit...

7 Styling Hacks For Chic Outfits That Look Way More Expensive Than They Are

Let's be honest: even a self-proclaimed fashion obsessive is reluctant to break the bank on every purchase. In fact, true shopping expertise may very well be savviness - the ability to make even the most affordable pieces look like they're actually superexpensive. Call it a fashion optical illusion. There was a time when the most coveted retailers were only available in a select few countries rather than the whole interweb, and now Instagram floods our feeds with covetable new brands on the regular. Suffice it to say, our bank accounts are probably happy to hear that times have changed. With an influx of great fashion at our fingertips, and more and more moderately priced brands entering the market practically by the minute, it's easier than ever to find what you want at a fraction of t...

8 Easy Spring Outfits to Try This Weekend

I don't know about you, but over the last 2 months my wardrobe has experienced a serious case of Groundhog Day. Jumpers, joggers, slippers, jumpers, joggers, slippers—the repetitiveness of my outfits has become quite an apt metaphor for the monotony of lockdown. Needless to say, I think we're all craving a little variety in our lives right about now, and if nothing else, the changing of the seasons will offer just that. While we still don't know when 'normality' will resume, we can still rely on the longer days and warmer temperatures to mix things up in the fashion department.If you've been following the weather forecast as closely as I have (I mean there's nothing else to do, right?) you'll know that warmer days are on their way, so I've used this an excuse to do a deep-dive on all my...

I Just Created 5 Perfect Spring Outfits From Arket's New Season Drop

While I am definitely a winter dresser at heart, there comes a certain point every February when I become beyond bored of wearing jumpers every day. I miss my light jackets and my blouses, my loafers and my midi dresses, and would love to be able to go for a walk without having to cover up every inch of exposed skin. Well, if the weather reports are anything to go by, this week is finally seeing temperatures tentatively creep above 10 degrees, which in my books means it's officially time to bring out the spring styling. Luckily, Arket is ready, waiting, and armed with the ultimate new season capsule.Living up to its reputation for delivering clean-lined staples with a Scandi-girl twist, Arket's spring drop will not disappoint OG fans. Coming in a cool colour palette of creams, beiges, g...

These 38 Outfits Prove Victoria Beckham Is a Master at Getting Dressed

Victoria Beckham's style should never be underestimated. Ordinarily, when she's more likely to leave her house, she's easily one of the most photographed women in the world; this means she yields significant power in the fashion industry and thus, on our wardrobes. Don't be fooled however; Victoria is no clotheshorse. Far from it. Her flair for styling is palpable, and the polish she puts into her looks is imitable. What we love most about Victoria Beckham's style is that you're never quite sure what to expect from her next. One minute, she'll be favouring head-to-toe black; the next, she'll don all three primary colours in one go. It's this fearlessness and unpredictability that ultimately makes her the icon she is.If you were to enrol in our (imaginary) Victoria Beckham style school, ...

9 Colourful Outfits I’m Going to Try This Spring

I'm so over snow. It's pretty and everything but once you get on to day seven of not being able to wear anything out the house except a head-to-toe duvet coat and all of the thermals, I get a little fatigued from it. I would much rather be wearing bright colours and fewer layers, to be quite honest, that make me think about the spring rather than grey overcast days that quite frankly make all of us feel pretty dismal.Once again, Instagram has provided a wealth of outfit inspiration to get us started. At the brightest look-at-me end are rainbow-inspired dresses and clashing block-coloured suits. But if you're more about a subtle approach to adding colour, and need to ease out of those classic wintry vibes, then a hot pink cardigan here or a brightly-coloured shoe there, is the way forwar...
