festive dressing

      The Christmas Sweater gets trendy. Sort of.

      Santa sleep tee, Topshop Once upon a time, Christmas sweaters were the kind of items that were worn just once a year (Christmas Day itself), and normally out of a sense of obligation: well, if someone had gone to the trouble of knitting one for you, the least you could…


      Style Trial | Fluffy fashion from Topshop

      All items available at Topshop We had a lot of love for Topshop’s fluffy knitwear a few weeks ago, but we’re a little less enamoured with some of the latest fluffy fashions to hit our favourite website. With their lurid colours and long-haired wool, these pieces have more in common…

      Louche 'Ivy' bow cardigans

      High Street Shopping: Louche ‘Ivy’ bow cardigans

      Louche ‘Ivy’ bow cardigans, £29 The Fashion Police are big fans of the humble cardigan. They keep you warm when it’s cold out (well, d’uh!), dress down too-fancy outfits, and make strappy dresses and tops suddenly appropriate for all kinds of settings they’d otherwise have been deemed semi-scandalous in. Honestly,…

      designer holiday sweaters

      The holiday sweater goes designer

      Holiday sweaters. For some people, they will always be the horrid, scratchy things they were forced to wear every Christmas morning, and were begging to be released from by the time the turkey was on the table. For others, however, they’re a designer fashion statement, and a chance to splash…

      Primark Pow Sweater

      High Street Shopping: Primark ‘Pow!’ sweater

      Move over Marcus Lupfer… Primark jumped right on the comic book trend with their ‘Pow!” sweater, which will set you back all of £14 (unlike the designer version, which was over £300). We hate to use the phrase “on trend”, so instead we’ll simply note that this will certainly help…

      crime of fashion

      Winter woolies, fashion criminal style

      Well, as long as your thighs are warm, who cares about freezing your butt and back? That seems to be the thinking behind this item, anyway. And really, this isn’t so much a fashion crime as it is a fashion mystery: the kind of thing that makes us shake our…

      roadkill sweater

      Crime of Fashion: The Roadkill Sweater

      Just in case it wasn’t bad enough, that’s real fur attached to it, to create this strange, “This is the skin of the tiger that mauled me” effect. That certainly explains why it’s £200 on sale, but it doesn’t even begin to explain why it exists, does it? [Product page]

      Bless turtleneck sweaters

      Strange Sweaters from Bless

      “Gosh!” we thought, “It’s not like our old friends at Bless to make an item of clothing that looks, well, ordinary. We’re more used to seeing hairy shoes, strange, off-the-shoulder suit jackets, and who could forget the Ra Multispaghetti dress? But these… these look like regular turtleneck sweaters!” Sigh. At least…

      Acne Gladys light sweater

      Unsolved Mysteries: Acne ‘Gladys Light’ grey sweater

      Something’s missing here. Over the years we’ve been policing the world of fashion, we’ve come to the conclusion that  fashion victims live in a completely different climate from the rest of us. In fashion land, it’s always warm enough for shorts… but also cold enough for boots. It’s cold enough…

      glove sleeve sweater

      Stuck Together Clothes Crimes: Glove Sleeve Sweater

      As far as Stuck Together Clothes Crimes go, sweaters with attached gloves have to be amongst the most hilarious. Seriously, can YOU look at the image above and keep a straight face? We’re impressed, if so. As chucklesome as this is, though, the fact remains that most glove sweaters are…

      cheap knitwear

      Wanted! Cute, cheap knitwear

      [Image: A|Wear] Knitwear: it’s one of those wardrobe staples, especially at this time of year, as the weather starts to turn colder, and our closets start to fill up with winter woolies. Is it too much to ask  that it actually be cute, though? Well, thankfully not: we’ve rounded up…
