This is not a fashion victim

Not a fashion victim? Time to prove it… Here at The Fashion Police, it’s our job to identify and arrest fashion victims (and then to help them to rehabilitate, obviously: you CAN overcome crimes of fashion, people – it just takes a little bit of time, and a complete change of mindset…), so it’s helpful when people who AREN’T fashion victims make themselves known – which they can now do with the help of this French Connection t-shirt. Of course, SOME people might argue that paying £30 for a t-shirt is the very definition of being a fashion victim, but we’re going to leave that up to you to decide. In the meantime, here are some articles to help you…

Casual outfit ideas for classic dressers

Why is it that casual outfit ideas can often be the hardest to come up with? Many of us have no problem dressing for work, for special events, or for anything else that has a dress code you can follow: those outfits are relatively easy. Looking stylish but casual, however, is a whole other ball game, which is why we all know women (or maybe even ARE those women…) who can reach into their closet at a moment’s notice and pull out the perfect outfit for a wedding or other event, but who are totally lost when it comes to a casual lunch with friends, or anything else that requires them to dress down. If the words “smart casual” –…

Faces in Places: Anna Sui suede mini dress

Can you see it? Can you see the face on this Anna Sui suede mini dress? Because we can see a face on this dress: and it’s not a happy face either. In fact, it’s a grump, annoyed face – a face that clearly says, “For crying out loud: why am I attached to a stupid suede mini dress? Why wouldn’t I have been a vintage Dior ballgown? Or something Taylor Swift might wear? Instead I’m stuck here with birds for eyes, and a really big nose…” Now can you see it? OK, OK, bad Photoshop is bad, we get it. But you see the face now, right? And now that you’ve seen it, you can’t UN-see it. That’s the…

How To Help Your Man Pick Stylish Accessories

[This is a contributed post] When it comes to helping your man look more stylish, it can sometimes be tricky to know what to suggest for him. You might be a fashion pro when it comes to dressing yourself, but when it comes to helping out your partner, you may not have any idea where to start.

Most men have wardrobes that are fairly stylish, but what they lack is accessories. The key to helping your man look more stylish and well put together is helping him to accessorize.

Good coat gone bad : Balenciaga camel coat

It’s always disappointing when a good item of clothing goes bad, isn’t it? We’re talking here about those otherwise perfect items: the ones that SHOULD be on our “Wanted!” list, but which end up in Fashion Police Jail, on a minor misdemeanour. They’re the good clothes gone bad: the ones we’d love if it wasn’t one for one tiny little detail that ruins an otherwise perfect item. We’ve all seen them, haven’t we? There you are, rummaging through the rails in your favourite store, when all of a sudden you see what LOOKS like the perfect dress. Excitedly, you pull it from the rack… only to find that it has a giant cut-out section on the ribs, or it’s completely…

Anatomy of the Perfect Wear to Work Dress

What makes for the perfect wear to work dress? Well, let’s see… It can’t be too short … …because the last thing you want when you’re trying to be taken seriously at work is to be constantly hauling your skirt down, being afraid to lean too far forward in case you flash your knickers, or having colleagues oggle your legs rather than listen  to your ideas. That doesn’t mean you have to cover yourself for head-to-toe, obviously, but you DO want to wear something you can move around comfortably in without worrying about where your hemline’s going to end up. It can’t be too tight… …because the office is not a club (er, unless you ACTUALLY work in a club, in…
