How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe That Will Last a Lifetime

Not so long ago, the fashion world was buzzing about the concept of a capsule wardrobe—the kind of compact closet that only held a bare minimum of pieces that all perfectly matched each other with great ease and much time saved in the morning. Perhaps because the economic downturn was ramping up at the same time that a furious decade of fast-fashion shopping was taking its toll on the capacity of our closets, the capsule wardrobe appeared to be the solution to everyone’s fashion woes. Around that time in 2014, Caroline Rector, a Texan fashion lover who’d had enough of the chaos, began to whittle down her closet to a mere 37 pieces, documenting the process on her brilliant website called Unfancy. Everyone paid attention to her method. Five years on, and we thought it time to cat...

Emma Stone Just Got Engaged With One of 2020’s Biggest Ring Trends

Not to say I told you so, but were we not just discussing how many celebrity engagements are happening this season? Well, now we have another one to buzz about because none other than Emma Stone has just announced her engagement to Dave McCary. The Saturday Night Live director and writer shared the sweetest photo of the two on Instagram that showed Stone revealing her beautiful antique-style engagement ring. Stone’s ring is stunning no doubt, and it also happens to be one of the most popular engagement ring styles experts are predicting for 2020. According to Olivia Landau, who’s a fourth-generation gemologist and founder and CEO of The Clear Cut, “Antique diamonds like old mine cuts and old European cuts have become extremely popular. They are distinct for their chunkier...

Layering Tricks That Will Help You Outsmart the Weather This Year

If the thought of layering clothes gives you flashbacks to being told to dress for school with the requisite “don’t forget your coat,” we promise you that piling it on has never been better.

And a decade later, playful layering is still on the style agenda, especially when navigating weatherproof dressing in winter. To help, we’ve compiled key layering tricks that will help you get more wear out of your existing favourites over the next few months and help you decide what you need to invest in. If there’s one major tip we can give you? You’ll find that one of the most versatile, lo...

10 Styling Ideas That Will Give Your Jeans a New Lease of Life

Ahh, jeans, where would we be without them? As someone who avoided wearing them for the first 20 years of my life, in the decade that’s followed, jeans have become as equally integral to my wardrobe as knickers and bras (I honestly don’t remember how I ever got dressed without them). And while they might not always be the most exciting thing to wear, they do open up so many sartorial possibilities. Fellow denim devotees will tell you that jeans have the potential to unlock countless excellent outfits, and you need only look to Instagram for proof. From Jessie Bush’s sleek take on the Canadian tuxedo to Ada Oguntodu’s penchant for retro flares to the way to Emili Sindlev wears ecru jeans, you’re going to look at your denim drawer in a totally new light after seeing these next-level looks.

11 Reasons Victoria Beckham Looks So Amazing at 45

I’m lucky enough in my job to have access to celebrity facialists, top beauty brands and the best experts in the industry, but I’ve noticed more and more that it’s A-listers themselves who are becoming all the more influential when it comes to serving up legitimately good beauty advice. Of course, celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sophie Turner are surrounded by the beauty industry’s cream of the crop on a daily basis—from makeup artists to hairstylists—so it’s really no surprise that they’ve picked up some expert beauty tips along the way. There’s one celebrity in particular, however, whose skincare knowledge I trust more than most: Victoria Beckham. With her own beauty line launching imminently (seriously, VB—spill the beans al...

Even the Pickiest Friends Will Love These 5 Jewellery Staples for Christmas

If Regent Street is anything to go by, Christmas has finally arrived in the UK, and that only means one thing: It’s time to commence the shopping mission of buying presents for the entire extended family, friends, Secret Santa, goddaughter and the cat. It’s exhausting, right? Well, we’re here to help—even if it’s just to tick one person off your never-ending list. It can be particularly hard finding pieces for the people in your life who are picky when it comes to gifting, but in our opinion, jewellery is one of those things you can’t really get wrong—especially when Missoma is involved.

Trust Me—These Brands Will Be Huge in 2020

With a brand-new year on the horizon, it’s hard not to contemplate what 2020 might have in store. Will Rihanna finally release a new album? Who will be the next U.S. president? What new show will come into our lives to replace our obsession with Game of Thrones?

The 9 Outfit Secrets Petite Girls Swear By

When you’re short, shopping for clothing is a bit of a battle. As someone who’s under 5’3″, I’ve regularly found myself in fitting rooms trying on laughably long jeans or jackets that make me look like I’ve come straight from the ’80s (such as unintentionally oversized shoulders). If you’re nodding along in empathy, rest assured that I feel your pain. But it doesn’t have to be this way. While we should all embrace whatever size, shape or height we are, sometimes appearing and feeling a little taller helps with being more confident. Which is why I’ve looked to petite Instagrammers to gather some tips on how to dress a smaller frame. Although they have their own takes on fashion, there’s one thing they tend to avoid: anything ...

All of Kate Middleton’s December Outfits Revolve Around This Colour Palette

In a recent episode of the Vogue US video series, Go Ask Anna, famed Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour was asked which celebrity was best to turn to for holiday style inspiration. Wintour answered immediately that it should be Kate Middleton.  TheVogue editor explained, “The Duchess of Cambridge always looks impeccable,” and noted that much of the appeal of Middleton’s aesthetic is that she always opts for styles that are “a little more classic and have a heritage feeling.”   Wintour could not be more accurate in this description, as we’ve also noticed that Duchess Kate adheres to a very specific style when it comes to the festive season. Whether attending a church service or reception at Buckingham Palace, throughout December it seems that Middleton often sticks to the very Christmassy colour ...
