What To Wear

      What to Wear to a Concert

      WHAT TO WEAR TO A CONCERT? This is actually a trickier question than you might at first think: concerts SEEM like a great excuse to dress your best after all, but then again, you’re probably going to be getting hot, sweaty, and possibly stamped on a few times, so you also need to go with something practical. So what to wear? Well, first things first: before you can decide what to wear to a concert, you need to know what KIND of concert it is. If you’re going to be sitting down, listening to classical music, say, you’ll probably want to dress a little differently from someone going to a rock concert. If it’s country music you’re into, meanwhile, the…

      Heart print pieces for Valentine’s Day

      Valentine’s day: whether you love it or hate it, you just can’t avoid it – not even here at TFP, we’re sorry to say. (Actually, you probably could: you could head out into the wilderness, or travel to some far-distant land, where no one cares about pink hearts and other romantic cliques. We’re willing to be that even there you’d bump into at least one person who’d ask if you got any cards, or what your plans are for the “big day”. Are you picking up on the fact that we’re not huge fans of Valentine’s Day? That’s good: we were worried we weren’t making it quite clear enough. Here’s the thing, though – our shameful secret, if you will:…

      Essential Items to Help You Stay Stylish This Winter

      Looking stylish is tough in the winter: in fact, when you’re faced with freezing temperatures and streets filled with ice and slush, it can be tempting to give up altogether, and simply retreat into layer upon layer of winter woolies – no matter WHAT they look like.  The good news is that it IS possible to stay stylish during the winter. Hard, maybe… but possible. Here’s what you need… 01. Boots that work with dresses and trousers Footwear is often the biggest stumbling block when it comes to winter style. Bulky boots can make an otherwise awesome outfit look messy, and a pair of that’s too slouchy will ruin the line of dresses and skirts. The trick here is to…

      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…

      How to Wear a Red Pleated Skirt 3 Different Ways

      Pleated skirts go in and out of fashion all the time: but for every woman out there who somehow manages to look effortlessly elegant in them, there’s another one wondering why she just looks like a little old lady, rather than a Pinterest Princess.  The pleated skirt can take a bit of careful styling to get right: to help you on your way, here are three ways to wear this red pleated skirt by Topshop… Red Pleated Skirt, Take One: Dramatic sweater / shoes / watch Some might dismiss this look as too matchy-matchy, but when you think about it, if it was a red dress, rather than a sweater and skirt, you’d probably have no issue with it, so don’t…

      5 Alternatives to Dresses for New Year’s Eve

      We love dresses. And, chances are, you probably love dresses too – or like them, at least.  Sometimes, though, no matter how much you like something, you just feel like a change. Here are five things to wear on New Year’s Eve – and not a dress in sight! A tuxedo jacket A menswear-inspired tuxedo jacket is dressy enough for just about anything, and makes a really nice alternative to a dress. Wear with tailored trousers if you want to keep it classic, or over leather/sequinned leggings for a more contemporary look. A jumpsuit We never thought we’d see the day when we’d be actually recommending you wear a jumpsuit, but jumpsuits have come a long way from the days when…

      5 style mistakes to avoid at the office Christmas party

      5 Style Mistakes Not to Make at the Office Christmas Party

      Ah, the office Christmas party! A time to connect with your colleagues over canapes and cocktails, celebrate the end of another working year, and maybe get to know them a little better, away from the stress and formality of the office. The office Christmas party, however, can also be a sartorial minefield for those who secretly quite like having a dress code to stick to, and don’t have a clue what to wear when their trusty tailored dress or trouser suit is off limits. To help you along, here are 5 style mistakes to avoid at the office Christmas party… 01. Dressing like you’re going to the club afterwards Even if you ARE going to the club afterwards, it’s not…


      What to Wear on Christmas Morning : cute loungewear and sleepwear options

      Most of us will put a bit of thought into what we wear on Christmas day – but we’d argue that what you wear in Christmas morning is just as important. Well, no one wants to look back at photos of themselves in a ratty old dressing gown or worn out pair of PJs, so here are some smart-but-comfortable options for a stylish morning with zero effort required: any time is a good time to invest in some new nightwear/loungewear, and the best thing about these pieces is that because they’re not “Christmas” themed, you can wear them all year round… joggers / sweatshirt / slippers We never thought we’d see the day when we’d be calling jogging pants “stylish”,…

      What to wear to a job interview

      What to Wear to a Job Interview

      Working out what to wear to a job interview used to be a whole lot easier.  Back in the days when many jobs came with set dress codes, there tended to be a much bigger divide between what people wore to work (typically suits or other, similarly tailored pieces), and what they wore in their free time. Now, however, as more and more people enter creative fields, and workplaces become more relaxed, working out what to wear to a job interview – and even what to wear once you’ve got the job – can be a bit of a minefield. There are obviously still plenty of jobs which have easy-to-work-our dress codes, or even uniforms. This article isn’t for people…

      What to Wear In Vegas

      Wondering what to wear in Vegas? Amber writes… So, lately I’ve noticed quite a few people have been arriving at the site looking for info on what to wear in Las Vegas, and it just so happens I can help with that, having just returned from a quick trip there last month. This was our second time in Vegas, although at a different time of year, so my first tip is all about the seasons… When are you going?  A lot of people think of Las Vegas as a permanently hot place, but it actually gets pretty cool in winter, so your first task is to check the weather for the dates you’ll be travelling, as you would with any other…

      What to Wear to a Funeral

      Here’s a subject no one really wants to think about, but which many of us unfortunately have to face at some point – what to wear to a funeral? Before we go any further, it’s important to note that most people don’t wonder what to wear to a funeral because they’re hoping to impress anyone: it’s a question we ask purely because we don’t want to risk causing offence. Because funerals are normally formal occasions, working out what to wear to one can feel like a bit of a minefield, so let’s get the basics out of the way first… You don’t necessarily have to wear black It used to be the case that black was considered the ONLY appropriate…

      what to wear leggings

      What to Wear With Leggings

      Remember when leggings came back into fashion? What are we saying: of course you don’t – you were probably still being dressed by your mother back then. If you do remember the fashion trends of the early 00s, though, you’ll probably recall that when leggings made their big comeback, most people were completely horrified by them. They remembered the leggings of the 80s, you see – the lurid colours and the camel toes, and the way leggings instantly became the uniform of everyone, everywhere – often to quite horrifying effect. They wouldn’t stick around, we predicted, but we wrong: leggings are still here, they’re probably not going anywhere in a hurry, and they’re STILL being worn in ways that aren’t…


      Style SOS | What to wear with a sequin skirt

      Since we published our first round of Christmas party outfit ideas, featuring that fabulous sequin skirt from River Island we’ve been getting a lot of searches for the same question: what to wear with a sequin skirt? What to wear with a sequin skirt Sequin skirts have been big news this season, and while the sparkly fabric makes them an obvious choice for Christmas parties, they’re not always the easiest items in the world to style. By their very nature, sequin skirts are fairly over-the-top, which means it’s very easy to end up looking like a glitter ball if you’re not careful. Obviously the question of what to wear with a sequin skirt will depend very much on the particular skirt…


      Christmas Party Outfits | Topshop

      Today we’re continuing our look at Christmas party outfits from some of our favourite high street retailers, so if you’re looking for some party outfit inspiration, read on… Topshop is a GREAT shopping destination for very trendy pieces aimed at the late teens/early twenties set – think sequined shorts, playsuits, that kind of thing. (And no, we’re not saying everyone in that age group likes/wears those particular items, just that that’s the demographic Topshop mainly caters to!). It’s not generally thought of as a source of classic style, but we’ve actually been really impressed by some of this season’s offerings, and didn’t have any trouble tracking down some Christmas party outfits which DON’T include shresses, hotpants or, God forbid, that…


      Four Quick Christmas Party Outfits | River Island

      So, by this point in the year we’re guessing you’re either one of those people who’s spending every free second obsessing over all-things Christmas – including Christmas party outfits – or you just never want to hear the ‘C’ word ever again. If you’re in the latter camp, well, we sympathise, but unfortunately we can’t help you, because with December just a few days away it’s time to either a) head for the hills or b) prepare to answer the question, “So, have you done your Christmas shopping yet?” at least a dozen times per day. Speaking of Christmas shopping… if you haven’t had time to think about shopping for yourself, let alone for anyone else, over the next couple…

      Spring Staples: classic, basic looks for the new season

      Although we’ve never been big fans of the idea of of “staple” items (Everyone’s lives and tastes are so different that there really isn’t a “one size fits all”…), we’re nevertheless always fascinated by what’s generally considered to be be “classics”. And with the days gradually starting to get longer and lighter, what better time to take a look at the generally accepted Spring staples? These are just a few of the items which normally appear on lists of wardrobe staples for the coming season: they definitely won’t be staples for everyone, but they are classic, basic items which pop up around this time every year… (P.S. Most of our chosen items came from French Connection, but are the kind…

      Of all of the questions The Fashion Police are asked on a daily basis, the most frequent are the ones beginning with the words “What to wear…?” We’ve answered quite a few of these now (some with the help of our readers), so, just in case you’re new around here, here are some of the posts we’ve written in a bid to answer that most important of all questions: what ON EARTH to wear? What to wear to a wedding We’ll probably all attend at least one wedding in our lifetimes (in fact, some summers it might feel like we’re attending at least one wedding every WEEK), but what to wear to a wedding remains one of the biggest sartorial…


      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…

      Choice of two ugly outfits

      Wear or Die: KTZ Edition

      So, we know it’s the week before Christmas, and the very LAST thing you want to do is slip into the ugliest outfit in the Fashion Police jail and hit the town in it. We know that. It’s too bad, though, because this is Wear or Die, and obviously you’re not going to die for the sake of fashion, so we’re afraid you’re going to have to pick one of the two options above to wear. Them’s the breaks. Here’s how it works: 1. You must choose one outfit from the two shown above, to wear in public. 2. The outfit must be worn exactly as it’s shown in the image: no modifications allowed! 3. Death is not an option. Will you…

      Style Challenge: What to Wear With Peep Toe Boots

      It’s Style Challenge! Some of you may remember this game from way back in the day, when it used to be a regular feature, but for those who don’t, it’s simple: we provide you with a hard-to-style item (or sometimes an easy-to-style item, depending on your take on things, and how generous we feel like being), you create an outfit around it, using the wonder that is Polyvore. As we’ve been speaking a lot about peep toe boots recently, we thought we’d make them our first challenge, so we’ve selected a pair of red, Alexander McQueen boots (click  here to buy them), and it’s your job to style an outfit around them.

      Can you wear white to a wedding?

      Alison writes: Dear Fashion Police, I’ve fallen in love with this white Closet dress, which I’d love to wear to my brother-in-law’s wedding this summer. Is it still considered bad form to wear white to a wedding, though, or is that no longer the case? Thanks! Alison Dear Alison, We love this dress too, but bright, unrelieved white to a wedding? Only if you’re the bride, unfortunately. While many of the wedding-related “rules” have fallen by the wayside these days, the fact remains that if you turn up wearing all-white, no matter what you’re wearing, and how non-bridal it looks, people will still think that either a) you’re the bride, b) you wish you were the bride, or c) you’re trying…

      Style Challenge: What to wear with Senso’s Wilma boots?

      Is everyone ready for the first Style Challenge of 2011? We’ve decided to ease you in relatively gently with this one: Senso’s ‘Wilma’ boots were hugely popular in fashion blogging circles last year, so if you’re running low on inspiration, you shouldn’t have to look too far to find some. Despite their popularity, however, bright pink animal print isn’t exactly the easiest thing to wear, so we challenge you to use Polyvore to create an outfit using these boots, and post a link to it in our comments section. We’ll publish your outfits next week and let you vote for your favourite. Ready to play? Take a look under the jump first to read the rules, and then off you…

      What to Wear With Bunny Ears: the results!

      Fashion Police Rabbit Challenge by Rudidoodles featuring enamel jewelry Rudi’s outfit Ever wondered how you’d actually go about wearing all of those woodland-animal-themed headresses that have been popping up in all our favourite stores for the past few weeks now? No, to be honest, we haven’t either. We HAVE, however, wondered how all of our readers would wear them, so on Friday afternoon we set you the challenge of creating an outfit based around a pair of bunny ears. What would you do, we wondered? Would you try to tone the ears down with something stylish but simple, or would you decide that if you’re going to be wearing rabbit ears, you may as well go all out with the…

      What to Wear With Clogs: Style Challenge results

      clogs by lola101x featuring Vince tops Lauren’s outfit Love them or hate them, clogs have played a huge role in fashion this season, and it looks like they’re going to be clinging on by the tips of their wooden heels well into next season, too – have you seen the fur-lined versions that are coming out for winter? Clogs aren’t always the easiest things to wear, though, so last week we challenged you to show us what kind of outfit you’d put together to wear with them, assuming you absolutely HAD to wear them. Here’s what you came up with! Thanks to everyone who took part in this challenge: remember to leave us a comment to tell us which outfit…


      Style Challenge: What to Wear With Clogs?

      If you’re anything like us, you’re probably sick to death by now of hearing about how very “on trend” clogs are right now. We’re not going to tell you that. Instead, we’re simply going to ask you what you’d wear with clogs, if you absolutely HAD to wear them. And to make it interesting, we’re going to turn it into a Style Challenge, and ask you to submit a Polyvore set to show us your outfit. Sound simple? The clogs in question are Jeffrey Campbell’s ‘Charli C’ clogs, which are $124 at Solestruck. You’ll find the rules of the game under the jump: we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

      What to Wear With Cowboy Boots: the result!

      Emily’s outfit So, what DO you wear with cowboy boots? That was the question we posed in our Style Challenge last week, and here are your answers. The outfits submitted feature everything from pretty dresses to casual jeans, and from glamorous evening gowns to classic cowgirl style. We think the answer to the “what to wear with cowboy boots” question, then, is “whatever you want!” If you treat them just like any other pair of boots (which is, after all, what they are), you’re limited only by your imagination. We’ve put all of your sets into one post, which means we couldn’t add a poll, so please feel free to nominate your favourite outfit in the comments section, and let…

      Style Challenge: What to Wear With Cowboy Boots?

      We’ve had a couple of questions on Formspring recently about what to wear with cowboy boots, and while we’ve given our answer over there, we thought we’d pass the question on to our readers, and turn it into a Style Challenge. What would you wear with cowboy boots (assuming that you absolutely had to wear them)? Your challenge is to head over to Polyvore and put together an outfit using the boots pictured above. Next week, we’ll publish your outfits, and the question will be answered for once and for all! Before you get started, though, take a look under the jump to read the rules of the game:

      Style Challenge: What to Wear With a Denim Skirt?

      It’s been a long time since our last Style Challenge, so we thought we’d ease you back into things with a (fairly) easy one: the denim mini skirt! Denim skirts are one of those items which never really disappear from the stores, or from some people’s wardrobes, but they’re far from universally loved either, and, once you’re past your teens, can be a little tricky to incorporate into an outfit. How would you do it, whether teens, twenties, thirties or above?

      Style Challenge: How to wear the nautical look

      Our last Style Challenge was our toughest yet, so this time around we thought we’d go easy on you and just have some FUN.  Nautical-style stripes tend to come around every Spring/Summer, so we’d hesitate to call them a “trend”, but there are a lot more of them in stores this year than usual, so this should hopefully be a really easy one: the challenge, however,  will be in trying to come up with something different from everyone else! The item we’ve chosen for this challenge is technically a dress, but we reckon it could easily pass as a top, too, so it should give you a bit of extra versatility. (You can buy it here.)

      Guest Post: The Right Way to Wear Leggings

      Sara Bimmel writes… We’re on the cusp of spring (FINALLY!), and that means leggings and tights will soon start to crop up everywhere. I know they’re fair-weather winter wear, too, but spring is the season when they’ll actually feel comfortable and won’t result in goosebumps all over your legs. I often have trouble figuring out what to pair with leggings that will look classy instead of ’80s, so I put together this set to show my thoughts. You can see that there are a few common themes: 1) Prints with solids. Generally speaking, if your leggings have a lot going on, don’t pair them with a Hawaiian shirt, and vice versa. You can see that both the shoes and the…
