QUESTION: I have a pair of Hudson Horrigan boots in beige suede, I love them but having always been a knee length boots girl I get the fear I look ‘wrong’ whenever I wear them! Any tips generally for getting the best out of them? I am a committed skinny jeans girl.
ANSWERED: I’ve checked out your boots and they are definitely going to carry you through the seasons in style. The fact that you love a good pair of skinnies is great as this is the best style of jeans for your boots. Here’s a few outfit options we hope you’ll love.
1. Zara, Coat £79.99:- Whether in the city or the country a great pea style coat always says winter chic. And the black will go great with your boots, team with skinny jeans and simple top for some Christmas shopping and lunch with friends.
2. Pull & Bear, Jeans £29.99:- I think the colour of your boots will work great with these shaded jeans as they both have that not too polished look.
3. Mango, Top £19.99:- Keep it simple with this top the length will help create some curves and balance your proportions. Add a country checked blazer when the weather warms up again.
4. H&M, Scarf £34.99:- Cashmere during the winter is a must have but instead of breaking the bank for a coat add this gorgeous super soft camel scarf. It will sit so well on the black pea coat.
5. Mango, Jeans £29.99:- Black jeans will definitely still work with your boots. And you can even still wear the simple cream top with this pair. Try this skinny black pair from Mango for a great fit and price!
6. Pull & Bear, Coat £39.99:- If you opt for black jeans try a grey coat to break up the colours and you can still wear the cashmere treat with this outfit. I hope you love our suggestions. SarahA x

QUESTION: Please help! I am attending my future sister in law’s hen weekend, there are 15 of us going out to dinner. If you could help me understand what I should wear I would be so grateful. budget…about £100ish
ANSWER: The hen party sounds like a lovely evening and a perfect reason to buy a new outfit. As it will be in February, we’d suggest looking for something with a sleeve as restaurants can often be on the cooler side – especially if you’ll be there for a most of the evening.
1. Monsoon Dress, £59: – As red is one of your favourite colours to wear, we thought it was the perfect place to start! Choosing a dress with a fitted waistline will create a gorgeous silhouette, nipping you in at your smallest part. Dress up with a pair of jewelled earrings, or tone down with a pair of black tights and court shoes for a smart office outfit:
2. Alexon Dress, was £64 now £49: - We came across this blue dress in your ‘liked’ items which is absolutely spot on for your restaurant evening. The draped front will skim past your tummy area, whilst the low V neck helps create flattering lines. If the neckline is a little bit too exposed, pop on a printed silky scarf which will add some pattern to your outfit:
3. French Connection Dress, was £65 now £52: - If you would rather go for something a little more casual, this French Connection jersey dress is great because you can jazz it up with accessories, or wear it with black boots for a weekend chic look:
4. F&F Heels, £22: – Adding a pair of heels to an outfit completely changes your posture, slims your lines and adds a whole load of confidence! A black pair of courts are great for all outfits suggested as you can wear either nude or black tights – just make sure you go for a closed-toe style:
45. Coast Earrings, £12: – Complete your look with one piece of elegant jewellery. We adore these classic earrings by Coast as they’ll instantly add glamour to any outfit! Karen x
Boiler suits have a been a hot topic of contention this morning thanks to this pic of Gwen Stefani. Actually it was her tartan Vivienne Westwood bag that initially caught my eye – not the denim jumpsuit-boiler suit situation. I liked the bag because a little bit of tartan gives a festive and fashionable spruce to a look. Even a boiler suit. My first ever celeb interview was with Jeremy Irons. Swoon. I really expected him to be a bit like his characters all suited and booted in say gentlemanly tweeds and stiff upper English lip style. “Duhhh!”…is what I believe would be the only correct term in popular vernacular to comment on my false assumption. There he was draped over the chair at The Lanesborough Hotle in a boiler suit and bold battered boots. Very Top Gun in a louche kind of way. So you see boiler suits can be quite cool. You can obviously style your jumpsuit/boiler suit up or down. Throw on some strappy heels and statement jewellery and this Boohoo number will take on a very different flavour. But Gwen Stefani always knows how to pull off a look. It may be quite masculine chic what with a flat boot and mannish style coat…but add that slick of red lipstick, perfectly coiffed locks and immaculate make-up for a girlie boost. Natalie x

With cosy gloves, fun beanies and shearling boots we’ve all been doing the spring/summer 2014 press day rounds to see what we will all be wearing and lusting after for next season. Even though this one feels as if it has only just started. Soooo pay attention:-
Did anyone mention bright colours? It’s going to be riotous. Neon pink is cooking up a storm but just look at these funky tribal inspired accessories and figure-flattering shifts from Very.Co.Uk. It’s a wild combination, pick a hot summer shade and add more madness with fabulous bold tribal prints:
And it carried on at Monsoon and Accessorize. Even though I am partial to paired back black, I love a burst of mad colour via my accessories and now you can do the same thing via your jackets. Well why not:-
A Boden press day is always a glorious event. This season we were off to the seaside complete with Boden Brighton Rock and a cheeky chappy ice cream seller:-
There were lots of silky fluid shapes and fabrics at Wallis giving that hip safari feel with an urban twist. And have a look at the Evans moodboard to see the thought and inspiration went behind fashion student Rebecca Partington’s collection for The Cut at Evans:-
Reiss was inspired by the French Riviera and Coco Chanel. It’s not often that you see long dresses in their collection but I really did love this billowing white number. It just needs a yacht and a cocktail:-
The Designers at Debenhams collections always mean you can get a flavour of designer looks at high street prices. Hot off his departure from Strictly Come Dancing, Julien Macdonald showed us why he is the king of razzle dazzle:-
