6 closet staples to build your wardrobe from scratch

6 Wardrobe Staples to Start Your Closet from Scratch

trench / dress /  jeans  / sweater / cami / shoes Anyone else starting the new year with a renewed determination to clear out their closet and start again from scratch?  Sometimes a good old closet clear-out isn’t enough. Sometimes a complete change of style is what’s needed, and if you’re still trying to work out exactly what YOUR style is (there’s some advice on how to do that here), a good place to start is by building up a solid foundation of basics: the so-called ‘wardrobe essentials’ that allow you to get dressed every morning without having to think too hard about what to wear. Now, we’re not saying these items will be wardrobe staples for EVERYONE – far from it….

Fashion Police Picks of the Day: Clothes for a rainy day

If you live in the British isles, we’re sure you’ll have noticed that it hasn’t stopped raining now for, ooh, about 50 years, give or take. Not only is this pretty depressing for those of us who live here, it also creates all kinds of sartorial issues, so for today’s Pick of the Day, we present you with this emerald green shower-proof trench coat from F&F.  The classic trench coat never goes out of style (that’s why it’s a classic, obviously), but if beige is too boring for you, the bright green of this coat will brighten your day – and if you don’t fancy that, perhaps the bright red will be more to your liking? (And it also comes…

Why We Don’t Follow the Red Carpet Any More

Amber writes… Last night’s Golden Globe Awards made me heave a huge sigh of relief: not because of who won, or what they wore, mind you – I actually don’t have a clue who won, or what they wore. No, I was relieved simply because this year, as with the past couple of years, I don’t have to pretend to care about it. No more late nights, trawling through image agencies, trying to work out who designed each celebrities dress, and get a blog post up about it ASAP. No more scratching my head and wondering what on earth to say about a sea of evening gowns that all start to look identical after a while. No more waiting for…

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…

5 Terrible Fashion Trends We’d Like to Leave in 2015

It’s a new year, which means we can expect a whole new set of fashion trends: some of which we’ll love, some of which we’ll hate so much we’ll instantly want to throw them into fashion jail.  Before that happens, though, and in the spirit of a new start, here are some of the fashion trends of 2015 which we’re hoping will stay there, rather than following us into 2016… 01. ‘I Woke Up Like This’ on everything  It wasn’t particularly clever the first time we saw it, and it definitely wasn’t making us laugh by the 67,556th time, either. 02. The 70s look Although the retail world beat the 70s look to death this year, we actually didn’t see…
