Ten of the best fur-trim coats and jackets

There’s a few things that make winter less cold, harsh and unbearable. Hot drinks is one that will always offer comfort. The open hearth is another. But if you’re out and about, nothing beats a fur-trim.

The fluffy and luxuriously soft fur, whether faux or real, give the semblance of being curled up in bed. On the right coat or jacket, it can also look decidedly stylish without being over the top.

And even better? A few of these are currently on sale.

Ten of the best summer wedge heels

Wedges are such summer classics that there’s really no need for introductions.

We love that there’s always new quirky designs and patterns each year, which you can use to update your wardrobe. But you can just as easily strut out in last years patterns and they won’t look out of place.

Certainly, we think it’s a wardrobe staple – one that will work with jeans or dresses as they can easily be dressed up or down. They’re comfortable too, especially on grass.

We’ve picked ten of our favourite summer heels so you’re after a new pair of wedges, why not start here?

Ten of the best culottes

Have you wandered on to this post, wondering what the hell a culotte is? Well, let us explain.

Once part of the upper-class gentleman’s wardrobe, the culotte now something of a fashion staple. For women. It’s most frequently seen as wide-legged shorts that fall at or below the knee but it can also be cut to resemble a skirt. It had its hey-day back in the 60s but now it’s seeing quite a revival.

In fact, you’re looking for shorts anywhere right now, you’ll probably have spotted these. It’s no surprise really. They’re long enough to be suitable for work while being stylish enough to be dressed in a pair of heels and a clutch bag.

Curious? We’ve picked ten of our favourite culottes that’ll work in the office or at the bar.
