Trust Me, COS Has the Best Collection Of Summer Dresses

As one of our go-to stores for minimalist gems, COS has always been on our radar for timeless summer staples. The store specialises in those oversized silhouettes and tailored items you can easily wear over and over again. The kind of products that will stay in your wardrobe for seasons to come.  Evidently, this summer, editors are not the only ones championing the high-street store as several influencers have also been seen in the brand’s summer dress styles. From their neon green seersucker maxi, to their pastel knitted midi dress, COS’ dress collection certainly seems to be a winner amongst the style set this season.  Using quality fabrications such as cotton and linen, simple silhouettes and vibrant block colours, it’s easy to see why COS dresses are so...

4 Outfits I Wore With Just One Pair of Leggings

Working at home right now, my priority is comfort, but if I’m being honest, I’ve felt like I’ve been in a bit of a slump by wearing the same athleisure looks day after day. Fashion is something that makes me happy and gives me a mental boost, so I’ve been challenging myself to dress up a little bit each morning, which has returned some moments of fun to my days at home. This week, I used black leggings as the building block to my outfits. Black leggings are a wardrobe staple I wear on the regular, but in the past, I have reserved them for workouts. Recently, though, as they have become a core staple in my wardrobe, I’ve come around to the idea of wearing leggings as trousers. Yes, as trousers. Moving away from my workout-only looks, I added in some of my regular wardrobe ess...

The One Haircare Product We Can All Benefit From Using

If you’re anything like me, you’ll find the concept of using oils on your fine hair quite scary. The truth is, a bit of dry texture is often the only thing capable of giving fine hair a little bit of life and volume. However, because fine hair is often fragile, it’s important not to starve it of moisture, and this is where oils can be really helpful. Luckily, it turns out that those with fine hair can use hair oils without weighing it down. “The secret to using hair oils on fine hair is to control the amount you use,” says Barton. “Less is more, so apply only one drop, to begin with, and build up if you need more. Massage 2–3 drops into the palms, tip your head upside down and apply the oil through the length. To minimise breakage, I like to comb it through with a Manta hairbrush.” “While ...

I Haven’t Shopped All Year, But H&M’s Summer Collection Just Changed My Mind

Last September, post–fashion week, we knew what we were going to see everywhere come summer 2020. The biggest trends included leather (for summer? Actually groundbreaking), pretty white dresses and Bermuda-style shorts. While these trends and many others were pretty much guaranteed at the beginning of the year, January now feels very much like a lifetime ago. Since then, countries across the world have been locked down with few people spending time outside their homes. This has, undoubtedly, led to a whole host of other trends emerging for summer 2020 that we couldn’t have predicted even six weeks ago. With plenty of people now working from home, basic white vest tops and joggers have shot to the top of our shopping lists. But it’s also the cancelled weddings and holidays t...

Every Single Item I Want to “Add to Basket” From the & Other Stories Sale

It’s hard to believe that the 2020 summer sales are already here, but the time has come, and luckily for us, they’re looking pretty good this year. Of course, & Other Stories was at the top of our checklist, as it’s a brand you can always rely on for stylish, expensive-looking staples at purse-friendly prices. Sadly, we are currently unable to venture into its chicer-than-thou stores, but worry not, because the site is packed full with summer-ready wardrobe gems.  As you can imagine, there are plenty of fabulous frocks. Think floral, puff-sleeved minis, flattering shirtdresses, smocked detailing and plenty of feel-good colourways. There is also a generous offering of mix-and-match basics that are sure to last long...

I Searched All the Sales, and These Are My Favourite Pieces

Unlike the January sales (which all start within a week of each other), the summer sales can be harder to keep track of. Their start dates will be staggered across the months, meaning you have to be more strategic. This month is big for sale shoppers and designer lovers, as MatchesFashion is dropping its prices. And there’s no forgetting high-street brands, including Arket and Topshop, which have everything from boilersuits to summer dresses. Of course, we’re heading toward those cult buys we’ve spotted all over our Insta feeds so far this year, but we’re also picking the pieces you’ll still want to for many years to come. Yes, we mean Wandler bags and Arket tailoring. To help you navigate the often-confusing summer sale season, weR...

Every Single Dress I Love This Summer Comes in This One Colour

Green isn’t the most popular colour out there, but make a dress in the hue, and from what I’ve seen, it’s far likelier to fly off the shelves. Many of the most popular midi dresses over the past few years have all been green (often midi, floral and in a grassy shade), and this year, it’s exactly the same story. From acidic neon shades to brighter apple greens, almost every dress I have my eye on this year comes in this shade. Many of this year’s cult dresses on the high street all come in green. There’s COS’s zesty green sleeveless dress, and & Other Stories has delivered numerous beautiful green dresses. If a vibrant green dress is a little too much colour for you, you can find softer options in floral p...

Chrysler’s Complicated Parentage: Who Owns It Now?

The Chrysler brand has used many of its nine lives to date, but the longtime American brand, which has had many adopted and foreign parents, is still alive. For now. The Chrysler brand is currently part of FCA US, which is owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. FCA is a dual-headquartered company with the Fiat side of the business based in Turin, Italy, and the former Chrysler Corp. operations based in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Chrysler dates back to 1925, founded by Walter Chrysler, and it is still referred to as part of the Big Three or Detroit Three, referring to General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. Chrysler has teetered many times on the edge of a financial cliff. It was on the verge of bankruptcy in the late 1970s and was saved by government loan guarantees worth $1.5 billion that bought ti...

This Is How to Get Your Pores Under Control in the Summer, According to Experts

As a beauty editor, I’m lucky enough to have seasoned skin experts examine my complexion on a regular basis. For years, I have had facialist after facialist tell me that my congested pores need a little help. And it’s true; they always have. Unlike those that are blessed with buttery complexions, my T-zone is plagued with blackheads, and where they aren’t present, my pores appear like cratered pinpricks all over my face. Usually, it doesn’t bother me all that much. Not because they’re not evident but because every time things start to get a little out of hand, I can go running to a facialist who I know will fix it for me. However, the last few months have seen my pore situation get out of control. Without the option of going for regular facials (honestly, who do I think I am?) and since th...
