Fashion

  • Ready to get crafty?

    Forget its naff '70s connotations, macramé is a big news in interiors and fashion this summer.

  • Killer kicks

    Kick off spring in style with a pair of super-cool new season trainers. Here are our 9 faves - plus how to wear them when you're not heading to the gym.

  • Say my name

    Fashion gets personal with the trend for emblazoning your name across your T shirt, handbag or phone case. Think school uniform name tags but cooler!

  • New season fashion

    Spring here coming but what to wear? Here are the key six trends that'll give your wardrobe an easy-peasy update.

  • Hey sexy pants!

    Ooh la la! We've hunted down the sexiest, slinkiest new lingerie around. Bridget Jones enormo-pants, be gone!

  • Witness the fitness!

    Finding it hard to kickstart that hardcore new exercise regime? Buy some slinky new kit and you'll be sprinting around the park faster than Mo Farah (possibly).

  • Powder perfect

    Budget not stretching to Fendi or Chanel on the slopes this year (or frankly *any* year?). Julien Macdonald's collab with Dare2B to the rescue!

  • coalville designers clothing brand

    Cool Colville

    Molly Molloy, former designer at Marni, has just launched the supercool label Colville. She talks fashion mistakes (she's made a few), art inspo, and how to nail your personal style.

  • Our festive fashion Top 10

    Invitations piling up and nothing to wear? Well, Cinders, you shall go to the ball (or, er, pub). Muddy's partywear edit incoming!

  • Wrist Action

    Obsessed with the time since the clocks went back? Then you'll appreciate our round up the coolest watches for all the family. Christmas inspo incoming!

  • Millie pink charm bracelets colourful glitter band with solid silver star and heart charms on arms

    Millennial magpies

    Worried about your teens' choice of arm candy? Problem solved. Millie Pink's new bracelets are cool, colourful and less trouble than a crush.

  • M&S SS18 lilac shirt, checked trench coat and black smart leggings

    Bored of your wardrobe?

    Lost your fashion mojo? A styling sesh could save time and buyer's remorse. Muddy tries the new M&S Fit & Style Studio, Westfield.

  • Trailback: The Perfect Outdoor Boots

    Meet my new best friends! Comfortable, waterproof and stylish too. These are the boots I wear every day, from new Cornish footwear brand Trailback

  • Would you give away your wedding dress?

    Your wedding dress is the most important item of clothing you’ll wear. It’s probably the most expensive too, but it’ll fit like a glove, make you feel a million bucks. It’s the sort of feeling you want to bottle. So it’s a shame you only get to wear once (although I confess I occasionally pop on […]

  • Hurrahs for bras! Just make sure you get the right size.

    Squished together, hoicked up trophy bosoms are so last year! The more natural '70s boob' is in, but unless you're a nubile teenager, you'll probably still want to wear a bra to stop you from falling out. But will it be the right bra? Incredibly, about 80 percent of us are wearing the wrong sized bra - are you? If so, help is at hand...

  • Fashion that plays to your strengths!

    Got a part of you that you’d rather downplay (err, yes!), or an attribute you’re happier to flaunt? Check out the-bias-cut.com, an online fashion boutique I discovered recently with a clever filter system that helps women play to their strengths. What’s more it’s aimed at over 40s not by patronising us with safe styles but by […]

  • Wouldn’t you though?

    I've just discovered Jules Hogan on Twitter. She knits beautiful cushions, ponchos, wraps and more in her garden studio in Berkshire. Can't get enough of her gorgeous things. Take a look!
