I don't hate anything that's 'in', I just hate being pestered. It's boring and makes me grumpy. Everywhere I look there's hype. Hype on social media, hype at the Oscars, hype at work, hype at the gym, hype in my real world, hype in my virtual world. Hype, hype, hype. And then I had a double epiphany: hype has killed my cultural mojo!!!
2015 has seen the rise of clean eating and clean living. The bodies in the spotlight - the lithe, tanned specimens we really covet - don't spend their time partying. They drink water, do their squats and eat their veggies. They get their eight hours. They glow. That's the standard - and those that care, go a long way to try to meet it.
For almost ten years now, skinny jeans have had a sartorial strangle hold on our wardrobes. Despite the fashion press declaring the style 'dead' on a regular basis, we continue to favour the skinny over all other styles. But given the fickle nature of fashion, why has this particular jean stood the test of time? What's the secret to its staying power?

The following collections - some for women, some for men, some for both - are extreme examples of how you can introduce a bit of colour into your outfits this season. If you absolutely will not be parted from your darker styles, why not try wearing them with a pair of amazing, colourful kicks like these Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals designs?
It's that time of year again. Summer is over and autumn is in full swing, although with the temperatures were having in the UK at the moment it doesn't feel like it! The question is: what should you be stocking up on to keep on trend? Well here' s my guide to the hottest autumn/winter fashion trends around.
As a fashion stylist, I have styled many beautiful women with different body shapes, different complexions, different style personalities, and most importantly, different budgets. Through my bespoke styling sessions, I teach people that looking stylish isn't defined by the amount of money you can spend on an item but by how well you wear it.
