We all love animals, right? I mean, anyone who doesn’t love animals is surely some kind of heathen. (Okay, heavy on the judgement here – but seriously, who doesn’t love animals?) We pamper our pets and spend hours watching cheesy animal-related reality shows on television. Some of us love animals so much that we show our love for them in our fashion choices. A great place for fashion items featuring furry friends is the vintage-inspired website, ModCloth. From unique handbags to adorable sweaters, we scoured ModCloth and compiled ten of our favorite animal-themed clothing items and accessories. Check them out here: 1.

5 Items of Clothing Worth Investing In

At the start of a new year (or a new month, or a new school season…) a lot of people resolve to start spending less on disposable fashion, and more on the so-called “investment” pieces. But what kind of clothing is actually worth investing in?  The answer to this will obviously depend on your lifestyle, and what you actually wear day-to-day, but here are some things we think are worth spending a little more on – although that’s not to say you shouldn’t ever try to grab a bargain if you can find one!

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.

I woke up like this

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…

Style Lessons We Learned from Audrey Hepburn

Style Lessons We Learned from Audrey Hepburn

It might seem like a total cliché to name Audrey Hepburn as your number one style icon, but the star’s classic style remains popular for a reason… [This is not Audrey Hepburn. But you get the idea.] Here are some of the style lessons we’ve learned from Audrey Hepburn… Simple is almost always best  When you look back at Audrey Hepburn’s outfits – and particularly at more candid shots featuring her “off duty” style – the main thing you’ll notice is the sheer simplicity of the looks. Hepburn favoured mostly black or neutral colour palettes, and while she wasn’t afraid to throw in a printed dress or colourful skirt, the pieces themselves were always simply cut, with minimal styling. While some would…

three things stylish women do on the weekend

3 Things Stylish Women Do Every Weekend

Well, it’s finally Friday: the weekend is just hours away, and for most of us, that means it’s time to kick back, relax, and not think about anything more taxing that what to watch on Netflix, or what topping to get on that pizza we just ordered. Not so for stylish women, though. OK, so stylish women are just people, at the end of the day: they also chill on the sofa, watching Netflix and eating pizza. Or, at least, we hope they do, because a life without Netflix is no life at all. They also, however, use the extra time at their disposal to prepare for the week ahead, and make sure it’s as stylish as they are. Well,…

How to Find Your Style

Don’t know what to wear? Sick of opening up your closet every morning and staring at the contents in despair, or trying on outfit after outfit, only to end up settling for that ancient pair of jeans and a sweater, because you just don’t know what you like any more, or what actually suits you? Maybe you’ve had a baby, gained or lost weight, or simply reached a point in your life when you no longer feel your old look is working for you any more, and you need a change. But how do you find your style when there are so many choices out there that you don’t even know where to start…

How to Wear a Midi Dress

… without looking frumpy “How to wear a midi dress” and “what shoes to wear with a midi dress” are two of the most frequently asked questions by visitors to the Fashion Police, and it’s not hard to see why. Ever since the midi dress came back into fashion a couple of years ago, they’ve become pretty ubiquitous, with most mass-market retailers stocking at least one midi for all of the legions of mini skirts which are their more usual fare. Although midi dresses are now easy to find, though, they’re not necessarily easy to wear. In fact, this can be one of the most troublesome lengths of all: it’s very easy to look frumpy in a dress that hits…

What to wear to a christening (And what NOT to wear…)

What to wear to a Christening or baptism is one of the most frequently asked question here at The Fashion Police, so let’s jump right in and talk christening attire… What to Wear to a Christening What to Wear to a christening: the basics Like weddings, christenings are formal events, which means that a certain formality of dress is expected of those in attendance. Unlike weddings, however, the good news is that  there aren’t many strange superstitions or colour-based clothing rules attached to them, so you’re much less likely to offend someone by turning up in the wrong thing. They’re also slightly less “dressy” than weddings, so unless you’re a Godparent, or, well, the baby, you’re probably not going to…

Adult Onesies: the Dress Like a Toddler Trend claims further victims

We don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this one, so we think we’re going to settle for “crying with laughter”. Because seriously, readers. Seriously. These onesies would look super-cute on babies or toddlers, but here’s the thing: they’re not for babies or toddlers. No, they’re for us. Adults.
