The Shopping Habits of Stylish People

What are your shopping habits? If you tend to shop when you feel bad, or panic-buy at the last minute, this post’s for you: these are the shopping habits of stylish people… The Shopping Habits Of Stylish People Wear the right lingerie If you’re going to be trying on clothes, make sure your undies aren’t going to let you down. They’re called ‘foundation garments’ for a reason: they form the foundation of your outfit, and should be completely invisible underneath it. Ill-fitting underwear creates lumps and bumps that will make any outfit look unflattering, and bright colours might look pretty on their own, but will show through light-coloured fabrics. We’re not fans of the lists of items that “all women…

faux fur mules

Crime of Fashion | Maison Martin Margiela faux-fur mules

OK, we’re declaring a state of emergency. The fur shoes thing is getting out of hand. All summer we’ve watched as designers presented us with fur-covered shoe after fur-covered shoe. We hated them all, naturally – as far as we’re concerned, there’s never a good reason for a shoe to have fur on it, and whether it’s fake fur or not, it’s still always going to be a crime of fashion – but we bided our time and hoped it was just a flash-in-pan trend. There are even MORE furry shoes on show as part of the autumn/winter collections, however, so the situation seems to be getting worse rather than better. And as soon as we saw these faux fur…

capsule wardrobe for people who hate capsule wardrobes

How to Apply the Capsule Wardrobe Philosophy to your Non-Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule wardrobes are big news right now. Everywhere we look, people seem to be embracing minimalism, clearing out their closets and decided to create a simple capsule wardrobe instead. Entire blogs have been built on the capsule wardrobe principle, and you only have to look at Pinterest to see tons of images of perfect, colour-coordinated capsules, for every possible scenario. While it’s not difficult to understand the appeal of the capsule wardrobe, however (Seriously, who hasn’t looked at those images of perfectly-organised closets, and thought how much easier life would be if you didn’t have to work out what to wear every morning?), it’s also true to say that they’re not for everyone.

not a fashion victim

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” –…

dress with a face

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…
