selection of one pieces in three different styles and colours

Wonderful one pieces | swimwear roundup

One pieces from M&S and House of Fraser One pieces used to be considered the frumpy older sisters of the sexier, more stylish bikini, but these days one pieces have come into their own, and are once again starting to be seen as a glamorous alternative to the bikini, rather than the last-ditch option for those who aren’t quite brave enough to bare all. Far from being “frumpy”, one pieces can be hugely flattering on just about any figure. The right one piece will hold you in, create curves even if you don’t have any, and allow you to actually go for a swim without worrying about something falling out of your bikini.

high heels are painful

High heels are painful, and other common misconceptions about fashion

People say the strangest things. And when it comes to the wonderful world of fashion, sometimes people say things that just aren’t true: or not ALL the time, anyway. We think it’s time to set the record straight on certain matters, so here are some common misconceptions about fashion, and our responses to them… High heels are painful, and no one can actually walk in them For people who don’t wear heels, it’s almost impossible to understand how on EARTH anyone can walk in them.

Five fashion things you don’t need to worry about

If you read a lot of fashion magazines or blogs, it can be easy to get swept up in some of the trends and ideas they promote: the “fashion things”, as we call them. It’s most often a subconscious thing: we know you’re all far too smart to be sitting there thinking, “Oh, look, this was in a magazine: I better do it!” but sometimes these things creep up on you, and before you know it, you’re thinking you’re the only person alive who doesn’t go out bare-legged in the snow, or take the time to co-ordinate your manicure with your outfit every day, and that this must be the normal, totally unremarkable way to live and dress.

Wanted Wednesday: Pretty in Pink (and white)

For today’s Wanted Wednesday we rounded up some pale pink items for your viewing pleasure (or displeasure, as the case may be), but then we had to go and ruin it all with something that ISN’T pink: Temperley London silk-organza dress, £1,250 Well, it’s SORT of pink. In a certain light. If you kinda half-close your eyes and squint a bit. It’s also a total fantasy-buy, at £1,250, so let’s quickly move onto something that’s both pink AND slightly more affordable: Topshop ‘Gwenda’ pointed court shoes, £58 We’re big fans of Topshop’s ‘Gwenda’ courts, which are available in a wide range of colours, including this pretty baby pink. This is basically the perfect court shoe shape, with a low vamp…

Summer Style Crimes to Avoid

Summer is a great time for fashion. Without the need to worry about having to stay warm by layering up in coats, tights and anything else you can throw over that that cute outfit to beat the chill, it can be a great time to experiment with summer style and have fun with fashion. The more relaxed atmosphere and less formal dress styles of summer, however, can also make it that bit easier to commit a style crime without realising.
