Is it second time lucky for 70s trends?

As always, what’s currently in style is a blast from the past. Although 90s and Y2K trends have a special place in our hearts and wardrobes, we’re moving towards the punk rock and old-school patterns, colours, and materials of the 70s. Beige and brown took us by storm this year, starting with the brown North Face puffer jacket that was whisked off the rails after taking over TikTok. This neutral colour palette seems to be everywhere – and I love it. You would’ve expected us to leave it in AW20,

Fashion at the BRIT's: Stars wearing stars

After waiting for so long, events are finally happening in person again, allowing us to fully critique each and every celeb look. With colours coming back for summer, the brown and neutral colour trend refuses to budge along with the comeback of Old Hollywood style looks on the red carpet, paying homage to the 1920's. This year's BRIT’s looks encapsulated this range of fashion. Here’s a run down of some of my favourite and least favourite styles seen: Rising star winner, Griff, wore one of the

Fashion at the Grammys: The best and the worst

After a long wait from the initial January date, fashion at the 2021 Grammy Awards ceremony did not disappoint. Alongside a consistently bright and colourful array of clothing, thanks to Covid-19, a mask became the new accessory of the season. While most of us watched from home, the limited number of performers and award presenters who were able to arrive in person made the outfits more important than ever. The expectations of masculine and feminine went out of the window this year with floral

The catwalk shows defining SS21 trends

Despite the ongoing Covid situation, catwalks across the four fashion capitals managed to go ahead. While New York and London opted for digital showcases, Milan and Paris held small events with social distancing measures in place. Some of the trends spotted at these events seemed very impractical, such as the capes and long trails that adorned the Raf Simons and Halpern catwalks. However, there was also a lot that I think we’ll start to see during our Tesco trips and Zoom calls. As showcased by

Fashion trends we should leave in 2020

As 2021 gets underway, have you vouched that it’ll be ‘new year, new you’? If that’s the case and you want to switch up your style, here are the things you should leave in 2020. Unfortunately, we can't leave the pandemic-related, political madness behind just yet. I’m a big advocate of comfy clothing (who isn’t?) and after spending a year staring at the same four walls, I completely understand why this trend has stuck around. However, my only saving grace in lockdown was getting dressed up so t

The rise of reworked fashion

During my first day in Sheffield I wandered down West Street and immediately became infatuated by COW, a vintage shop with locations across the UK. To my disappointment, they do not have a shop in my hometown of Newcastle. I picked up a branded tote bag during my first visit - useful for the weekly food shop but also cute due to the use of reworked fabric. COW sells a range of tote bags, but this one caught my eye because of the bleached yellow dye against the thicker black material, which diff
