3 Looks to Channel Your Inner Claire Underwood from House of Cards

House Of Cards

Claire Underwood is one of TV’s best-dressed characters—nothing makes me rethink my wardrobe, especially my work wardrobe, more than her. Played by Robin Wright, Underwood is minimal and crisp but takes risks with silhouettes, making every look into a very powerful statement. This season she has pushed a bit further with a dramatic all-white inauguration look. It read perfectly feminine and strong, and the military details in many looks she wore during briefings with key politicians really put her in the power seat.

Ahead, three looks that'll let you channel her take on power-dressing.

Anatomy Of The Perfect Boiler Suit

B_Feature1
I can feel my grandmother turning in her grave at the idea that boiler suits are en Vogue. I can hear her preaching, “What ever happened to pretty little dresses?”. Well, grandmother, those days are gone, and modern women are chasing clothes that are comfortable enough to carry us through the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, and trends that disrupt the sacred masculine-feminine divide. Boiler suits are having a moment. Once a garment sported by mechanics and quirky art students, they now have the celebrity seal of approval, appearing in our favourite high street shops and social feeds. Are boiler suits just like jumpsuits? Yes, my friend, they are. Except, boiler suits tend to have a more industrial hit off them. Jumpsuits offer a softer, more playful silhouette....

5 Of The Prettiest Print Dresses

20161215_054_Lotus_Dresses_Red_Finery_London_0408_copy

It’s June and so there’s no better time to take a risk with a couple of pretty print dresses. Everything looks better in the sunshine.

Online retailer Finery London is overloaded right now with distinctive prints. This vibrant peonies print dress is ultra feminine with its frills and pleated sleeves, but the rich raspberry red colour and bold graphic blooms keep it contemporary too. If you’d like to try this on before you buy, it’s currently stocked in Brown Thomas too.

How To Wear Millennial Pink If You’re Not A Millennial

Millennial-pink
From Wes Anderson movies and nail art to graffiti, music videos and interior design, there is no escaping the “it” colour of the year, despite its somewhat off-putting title. Here is how to embrace and wear millennial pink, even if you’re not one. Pink is my thing. I wear pink when I’m feeling down. I eat those pink Mikado biscuits with my tea – you know the ones with the fluffy bits? My decor is pink. My trainers are pink. My hair has been pink (and will be soon again). I’m well-versed in the world of pink – from bubblegums to French – but when the term “millennial pink” was tossed at me recently I was a taken back. What the hell...

The IMAGE Festival Fashion Checklist

Fashion-festival

With festival season about to kick off, avoid the fashion clichés with the IMAGE festival fashion checklist.

The shoes

SS17-DetailNY-0052
First things first, you’ll want to be comfortable. You’ve got a lot of dancing around to do and it’s a long day on your feet, so bare that in mind when choosing footwear. As we all know, weather conditions can be unpredictable and sadly, this isn’t Coachella. Fishing out your wellington boots is significantly more likely than your new sandals but that’s not going to stop us from trying the next best thing. Wellies don’t exactly scream fashion so trust in your trainers to see you through the festival fashion show, wherever yours may be. Maybe not...

Is This The Most Flattering Silhouette For Women?

Screen-Shot-2017-05-25-at-15.40.47

A paperbag waist is an elegant one. Sitting at the hip with a loose bow neatly tied at the waist, a tapered trouser creates a flattering, hourglass figure while the wide-leg lengthens the silhouette. To avoid looking frumpy, tuck a graphic tee or smart shirt into the waist and wear a heeled shoe to further elevate the long and lean frame.
