White shirts have been worked and reworked this season with volume, structure and detail to elevate this wardrobe classic from layering tool to the focal point to build an outfit around. The key: keep the focus on the shirt with the rest of your outfit pared back and always, always wear a nude – not white – bra.

The bomber jacket is hot on the heels of the blazer as the day-to-night jacket staple and if the Autumn Winter previews I’ve seen recently are anything to go by, it’s an outfit topper that’s here to stay.

There’s a definite style divide between Scandi-style minimalism and Gucci-esque maximalism in fashion right now and it’s not just us women who have to make the sartorial choice; the kidswear scene is also a tale of two styles with monochrome graphics vs retro rainbow brights – it’s a tough decision for our little ones. And as much as I try to […]
