Topshop’s £22 stripe bardot top

Topshop’s £22 stripe bardot top When you’re in need of a quick wardrobe pick-me-up, but you don’t want to spend too much cash, where do you turn? Well, Topshop, of course! Or, OK, ASOS. Or Dorothy Perkins. Or… OK, you got us: we’re really lucky to have a huge selection of affordable fashion at our disposal here in the UK, but it’s Topshop who are selling this split-sleeve Bardot top (honestly, we could live without the split sleeves, but we get that they have to add an “on trend” element in order to appeal to people who care about that kind of thing, so we’re willing to overlook it, and try not to think about how much those sleeves would…

A Quick Spring Wish List

If you read any of our other blogs, you might have noticed that The Fashion Police have been a little bit obsessed with Oasis lately. It’s not that we don’t love Oasis ALL the time, of course, but this is a brand that’s pretty much made for spring – just look at all of those florals they do! Here are some of our favourite pieces, just in case you’re in need of some retail therapy on this bank holiday Monday… Long textured skater dress One of the things we love most about Oasis is that they release many of their dresses in both a longer and shorter hem. We prefer longer lengths, ourselves, and are constantly finding dresses we love,…

The Shopbop Big Sale is on now!

Shopbop’s Big Sale is happening this week, which means that, here at Fashion Police HQ, there’s been some endless browsing of the Shopbop website this week, too. Adding items to baskets, removing items from baskets, trying to work out if we can possibly justify squeezing in that one extra item… you get the picture. You’ll find all of the essential items from the sake in the graphic above, but here are some things that caught our eye from the ‘new in’ section: Maison Labiche Crazy in Love sweatshirt You just can’t go wrong with a classic grey sweatshirt, can you? No, it probably won’t be the most exciting purchase you’ll ever make for your closet, but we can practically guarantee…

Things to Buy From H&M

H&M have really stepped up their game over the last couple of years or so, and this season, the collection is looking better than ever. Here’s some of our top picks: Sleeveless silk dress OK, so at £99.99, we’re going to guess that this is probably a little more expensive than you’d usually expect from H&M. Luckily, though, the price is justified by the fact that it’s also a little more special than you’d usually expect: this dress is silk, and, from what we can see of it in the product shots, it looks to be beautifully made, with a classic shape, flowing cut, and, best of all, pockets. Gotta love a dress with pockets, right? this would be perfect for…

4 Things to Buy for Spring from River Island

The wind might be howling around the Fashion Police HQ as we write this, but that doesn´t stop us looking ahead to spring 2017 – and, more importantly, to all of the wonderful clothes we hope it will bring us! Today we´re taking a look at some of the spring offerings from River Island: here are four things to get you in the mood for warmer weather… This mustard trench coat River Island actually released this trench coat around this time last year, too, and we´re more than happy to see it make a comeback for 2017. A good trench is a spring staple for us (and for a lot of other people, too), and this sunny yellow shade will…

Dinsosaur Style from Kate Spade

Dinosaur bags by Kate Spade, available at Shopbop Dinosaurs are going to be, like, SO HOT this year, folks  – but only if they´re either purple or hot pink. How do we know? Because Kate Spade says so, obviously. The bags above are just two of the dinosaur-themed creations from her collection currently available at Shopbop. Are they cute, though, or just kinda childish? We´re going to let you be the judge of that: and while you´re making your mind up, here are some other Kate Spade goodies to feast your eyes on… Dinosaur bags by Kate Spade Now that Christmas is finally out of the way, it´s time for the PRs and bloggers to start obsessing over Valentine´s day…

50% off partywear – and your last chance to find that perfect Christmas outfit!

OK guys, there are just four shopping days left until Christmas, and if, like us, you like to do most of your shopping online, we’d recommend getting those last-minute purchases in today – and ponying up the extra cash for next-day delivery- if you want to make sure they get there on time. If you still have gifts to buy, well, we’re afraid your on your own with that – good luck, though. If you need a last-minute outfit, however, your luck is in, because River Island are currently offering 50% partywear – and there’s still time for that next-day shipping option to get it to you on time. Phew! Here’s some of what you could buy… Black bandeau jumpsuit,…

25% off at Dorothy Perkins – but only until midnight!

OK, Cinderella, you have until midnight to fill up your baskets and run off with your handsome prince – by which we mean your new dress, shoes, or whatever it is you’ve chosen to buy. Yup, the store that just keeps on giving is having yet ANOTHER sale: this time Dorothy Perkins are offering 25% off just about everything, so whether you’re shopping for a Christmas party outfit, searching for stocking fillers, or just giving yourself a bit of a treat, now’s the time to do it.

25% off almost everything at Dorothy Perkins

If there was a prize for the brand with the most sales and discount codes, we reckon Dorothy Perkins would win it, no problem. Barely a week seems to go by without another offer (not that we’re complaining, you understand!), and this week is no exception, with 25% off almost everything on the site. Here’s what we’d buy… pink satin full skirt – currently £31.50 We rarely find a full skirt we don’t love, and while the black version of this skirt would probably be the more practical option, this pink version is a lot more fun. black ‘Bethany’ court shoes – now £28.80 If you’re looking for something to wear with that skirt, meanwhile, these black ‘Bethany’ court shoes…

15% off at H&M – here’s what to buy

H&M is becoming a dangerous addiction these days: not only is the autumn/winter collection particularly covetable, there’s also been a steady stream of discount codes and sales which have made a spot of internet shopping hard to resist. Right now, the brand is offering 15% off, plus free delivery on all orders over £75: and if you’re wondering what to buy to get that discount, don’t worry: The Fashion Police are here to help… Pink wool blend coat This coat has been doing the rounds on Instagram lately, and it’s not hard to see why: it’s the perfect, baby-pink colour, but in a slouchy, over-sized shape that means you’re not going to look too ‘Elle Woods’ in it. Pink coats…

The Fashion Police’s Favourite Phone Cases

In an age when it seems no one is without their phones for more than a few minutes (Hey, can YOU remember what humans used to look like WITHOUT a phone clutched in one hand? No, us neither…) there’s no quicker pick-me-up than a new phone case. Plus, they look good in all those mirror selfies you post to Instagram, don’t lie… When it comes to phone cases, our favourite brand would have to be Kate Spade, whose fun, quirky cases take some beating. If you prefer your phone cases more on the sophisticated side, however, new brand Richmond & Fitch have a range of rather more elegant cases, in a range of different colours. (One for every outfit? Just…

Fashion Police Hit List: What to buy this week

Greetings, fashion force: here’s what we’d buy this week, if we only had the cash… // SCHUTZ Cadey Lee Sandals in light wood We’ve never been believers in the idea that there are certain items of clothing that EVERYONE should own, but if we were, we’d probably put a pair of a neutral, single-strap sandals on that list. Yes, we could definitely live without them: but would we really WANT to, we ask ourselves? // TOPSHOP BIRD PRINT ROBE OK, so this does look a little bit like something Dumbledore might wear to bed, but that’s all part of the charm, really. We firmly believe in the feel-good factor of feeling stylish even when you’re just lounging around at home,…

5 Things To Buy This Week

Week going  little slowly?  Not to worry: here are five things to brighten it up, from the super-simple basics to the slightly more special: enjoy! 01. Vero Moda stripe bardot top Can you ever have too many stripe tops? Don’t think so. What about bardot tops: can you have too many of those? Nuh-uh: or not the last we heard, anyway. This is a stripe bardot top, and it’s only £22: it’s impossible for us not to love it. 02. Oasis embroidered anchor t-shirt Because if there’s something else we can’t get enough of, it’s anchor print. This is a cute way to make a plain white t-shirt a little more interesting, and if you’re a fan of the nautical…

TFP Pick of the Day: The Perfect Stripe Dress for Winter

Staying styling AND staying warm aren’t necessarily one and the same thing at this time of year: in fact, all too often we end up forgetting about style altogether, and just layering on as many items of clothing as it takes to keep out the chill. The answer? Knitted dresses. They’re easy to wear (just as easy as jeans or leggings: maybe even easier, in fact, because you don’t need to find a top to wear with them), warm, but when you find one that works for you, you’ll look like you made a bit of an effort, even when you didn’t. Which is why we love this navy stripe dress by Sugarhill Boutique. The navy and white stripe gives…

Fashion Police Picks of the Day: Cute nightwear from New Look

All items: New Look One of the new year’s resolutions we forgot to tell you about was to dress better ALL the time: not just when other people are going to see what we’re wearing. We’re sure most of you don’t mind investing in a new dress every now and then, for instance: or a pair of jeans, smart top, or whatever else makes up the “public” part of your problem. How many of you, though, have a drawer full of greying undies to wear underneath those cute new clothes? Or a ratty old dressing gown hanging on the back of the bathroom door? We’re pretty sure more than a few of you are looking a little bit guilty right now…

Boden Maggie Ottoman dress

Fashion Police Picks of the Day: Black and white stripes at Boden

Boden Maggie Ottoman dress, £89.50 The Boden spring / summer 2016 collection hit the website earlier this week, and there’s a whole lot of stripes going on. There are other colours and patterns too, you understand – in fact, all of the items we’re about to show you come in a selection of other colours – but it’s the black and white stripes that jumped right out of the page at us, and those items are the ones we’ve selected for our Picks of the Day. The abundance of stripes, you see, is a very good thing, as far as we’re concerned. There’s just something about bold stripes that manages to be both classic and contemporary at the same time,…

Topshop Baxter jeans in mid-blue

Fashion Police Picks of the Day 04.01.16

In this new series, we’ll be bringing you a selection of our favourite items, available to buy now, on the UK high street. Starting with… Topshop Baxter jeans in mid-blue, £40 Topshop’s ‘Baxter’ jeans are the perfect skinny jeans for people who don’t really like skinny jeans. By that, we mean they’re definitely skinny, but they’re not skin-tight, so they won’t create that “sausage-casing” look that’s become so familiar over the last few years. It’s been increasingly hard lately to find skinny jeans that aren’t super-skinny, and sometimes it feels like there’s no middle-ground between the legging look and boyfriend jeans – which can also be hard to pull off. These jeans, however, are everything you need: we just wish…

Wanted! Balenciaga mint leather pencil skirt

Time for a little bit of fantasy shopping to kick off this Monday morning. Because if we could just have this Balenciaga leather pencil skirt, we promise we’d never complain about Mondays ever again. Or about anything, really… It’s funny, because for the most part, leather skirts fall into the “love to look at them, don’t love to wear them” category for us. Sure, they look fantastic (or they CAN do, if they’re done right), but it can be hard to get the perfect fit, then you have to worry about them ruching around the hips when you walk, bulging uncomfotably when you try to sit down in them… Of course, most of those issues will be solved if you…

Wanted! Spots and stripes at Stefanel

There’s nothing quite like spots when it comes to making an ordinary item of clothing seem a little more special. Except maybe stripes, that is. Spots and stripes, stripes and spots: we wouldn’t want to choose between them. so we’ll just declare both of them to be our favourite prints, and leave it at that, shall we? This season, Stefanel have created a fabulous collection of spots and stripes: here are some of our most wanted items… 01. Longline stripe cardigan, £150 The nautical look never goes out of style: this longline stripe cardigan uses the classic red, white and blue colourway to create a fun cover-up that’ll look good over jeans, leggings, and anything else you choose to pair…

Wanted! Six Spring Pieces from Dorothy Perkins

Everyone has their favourite fashion season, and our would most definitely be spring. Particularly THIS spring. We’re totally in love with all of the pretty pastel colours, the big skirts, the polka dots and the stripes this season has seen fit to bestow upon us, and every day seems to bring new items to add to our WANTED! list. We’re particularly impressed with the current spring collection at Dorothy Perkins: here are six of our favourite things, which we’re hoping you’ll go and buy, so we don’t have to… 01. The baby blue sweater, £18 It’s still sweater weather, and probably will be for a while yet. Baby blue has been one of the big colour trends of the season,…
