The Healthy Supplements Guide

A few months ago we wrote about vitamins, in attempt to demystify them (let's face it, all the spiel on the bottles is very confusing) – now we're going to tackle supplements. So, what's worth trying, depending on what you want to work on? Note that this guide is by no

Activewear Doesn't Have to Break the Bank

As anyone who has been into Lululemon, looked at the price tags and promptly ran out of the store, holding back tears can attest, workout gear can be so expensive. Hurrah for fashion democracy, then, and the Great British High Street, for offering up financially viable alternatives for those of

Steal Her Style: Chloë Sevigny

Art house film queen Chloë Sevigny never fails to kill it, style-wise, both on and off-screen, even after her 90s style heyday. Here, we break down some classic Chloë looks and show you how to recreate them on a non-movie star budget... The dreamy dress look## It was pretty much

Investment Pieces: Are They Worth the Price?

The term 'investment piece' is often bandied about by fashion writers, such is the allure of fashion purchases which, in an ideal world, increase in value after being purchased. But what gives a luxury item legs to become an investment piece, rather than a one-season wonder? And are investment pieces

Making a Case Against 'No Make-Up' Make-Up

There's been an unprecendented rise in the popularity of 'no make-up' make-up as of late. So far in 2018, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera have overhauled their public personas, proudly presenting their stripped-back faces to the world, and the Kardashians – who arguably made extreme eyebrows, 'popping' highlighter, eyelash extensions and

Tips for Going Plastic-Free

It's estimated that, by 2050, there will be more plastic in our ocean than fish. Grim, right? It's no secret that plastic is damaging the planet, but if you need futher proof, let me point you in the direction of the documentary A Plastic Ocean, which is now available on

Charting the Rise of Virgil Abloh

Who is Virgil Abloh? It's hard to put the elusive creative into a particular box. His is the name on everyone's lips in all corners of the fashion industry right now; he's killing it with his luxe streetwear output, Off-White, and he's racking up a lengthy list of collabs with

Paris Fashion Week AW18 Highlights

Fashion Month has just come to an end, going out on a high in Paris. It's always the go-to city when it comes to fashion's greats, from Dior and Chanel to Carven and Chloé, so it's hard to pick favourites, but we've rounded up a handful of collections that really

London Fashion Week AW18 Highlights

As is always the case when Britain's creative capital is concerned, London Fashion Week was a mixed bag of eccentricities. One minute Erdem was serving up dream girl looks in the National Portrait Gallery and, the next, CSM MA graduate Edward Mahoney was sending condom dresses and 'Trumpettos' down the

Calling BS on Valentine's Day

Why is it that all the things that make me want to throw up a bit inside my mouth are relationship-related? Whether it's cringeworthy Facebook statuses about how someone's boyfriend has spoilt them/given them a surprise gift/paid for their dinner, or finding out that someone has been proposed

How to Make Fine Hair Look Thicker

Doing my hair has never been for me. I had a fleeting relationship with straightners and the Carmen Girls Angel Curls wand as a pre-teen, but since then I've generally been a tie-it-up-and-ignore-it type. I wish I could put this lack of self (hair) care down to a lack of

Phoebe Philo's Greatest Moments at Céline

I t's been announced that Hedi Slimane will take over as creative director of Céline. While we'll have to wait and see how much of Slimane's hallmark I'm-with-the-band aesthetic will slip into his vision at Céline, one thing is certain: the guy's got big shoes to fill. Before Philo's second
