Skincare
While we would normally recommend using a proper cleanser, there’s nothing wrong with reaching for a wipe before and after the gym. Pack a hydrating face mist to keep you cool, and don’t forget to follow your workout with a moisturiser to compensate for everything you’ve just sweated out.


Makeup
Ideally it’s best to remove your makeup before the gym, but sometimes we want to cover up (or simply won’t have time to remove it) and that’s ok. Switching a heavy-coverage liquid foundation for a powder or tinted moisturiser will limit any breakouts. The BareMinerals Original Foundation is our favourite for low-maintenance flawless skin – it claims to be so pure you could sleep in it. If you can’t live without eye makeup, save time after class by sticking to waterproof formulas.


Haircare
Post-gym hair isn’t always pretty, but there are a few steps you can take to reduce the damage. Firstly, keep it off your face during exercise. Dry shampoo is everyone’s best friend and we love Aveda Shampure to absorb any excess oil when you’re done. Finish with a quick spritz of hair mist like Gucci Bloom, and you’re ready to go.

Winter kidswear you'll want to steal

Winter kidswear you'll want to steal

Kim and North, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy… twinning is officially a thing. When once you wouldn’t be seen dead in your little one’s cutesy jumper or think of dressing your tot in your tee, today the modern family wardrobe is one that matches. From the t-shirt for every member of the gang to the cutest mini-me trainers, here’s the winter kidswear you can wear too.

The return to glamour

The return to glamour

 

We may have emerged from the depths of winter, but the heady heights of summer, holidays and sun still feel a lifetime away – let's face it, we could definitely all do with a little less bleak and a little more chic right now. So this spring, join us in our anti-minimalist rebellion, celebrating fun and feminine fashion and the joy of getting all dolled up. Whatever your sartorial threshold, you’re sure to find some treasures that will persuade you to kiss minimalism goodbye and embrace all things embellished, printed, textured and downright glitzy. Being overdressed has never felt so good.

Extra, extra


We’ll be the first to admit, we’re losing it a little bit over these accessories, aka: the very definition of glamour in shoe and bag form. Obvious Instagram appeal aside, a pair of statement heels or a stand-out bag can uplift just about any outfit, whether it’s a simple daytime look of straight-cut jeans, a white tee and a trench or a sleek little black dress for your more snazzy occasions. One thing’s for sure, you’ll definitely have yourself a conversation starter with any of these show-stoppers.



 

 

 

Press print

 

After a good few seasons of minimalism, we’re heading into a print renaissance, with brazen florals and animal prints taking centre stage for spring/summer. The real key to this trend is to break down those mental fashion faux pas barriers and experiment with the prints you love. Try splicing together graphic animal prints, bold, saturated florals or stripes, and oversized checks to achieve that ‘oh, just something I threw on’ effortless style. Wall flowers need not apply.

Dress up


Calling all maximalists and magpies – SS19 has some truly exciting and seriously glamourous updates to offer your eveningwear. This season will see styles that flutter between fantasy and classicism, with OTT proportions and romantic details like shimmer, ruffles and bows turning up the volume on after-hours attire - think Villanelle in Killing Eve. This will definitely hit the sweet spot for those who relish a chance to really dress up when it comes to after-hours style. For a more dialed down day-time look, just slip on a pair of trainers and an oversized coat with a ruffled midi.

How to Style Trainers

How to style trainers

 

Gone are the days when trainers were solely saved for athletic endeavours. Over the past few years, they’ve broken free from their gym-bag bounds and are now sweeping the street style scene as well as the runways. We’re calling it - sporty footwear is the cool choice for, well, pretty much everything. If you’re feeling inspired, take a browse below to get your fashion kicks.

Styling suits with trainers


To update your weekday wardrobe this year, try elegant suiting in traditional monochrome styles or pretty pastels (set to be a major trend for spring), and then add trainers. They may not be your go-to work footwear, but they'll provide the casual finish that heels are missing and keep your 9-5 look on the right side of dressed-up. A box-fresh white pair are easy and versatile but a coloured pair or a flash of leopard will freshen up a classic outfit. The best part? You'll be comfortable for a day on-the-go and look effortlessly cool.


“The trainer trend is here to stay. Dress down your favourite co-ords with these styles.”

 

 

 

Dress down your dress

 

Wearing a pair of trainers with a knockout dress was arguably the look of 2018, and for good reason. You get to look smart in a frock, but not too OTT, thanks to the addition of casual trainers. The trend is set to continue long into 2019, so try pairing some sporty kicks with a floor-skimming frock for the perfect antidote to feeling overdressed, or bring out the '90s vibes in your pinafore mini dress by adding a chunky-soled style. If dresses aren't for you, combine with a printed midi skirt and a soft knit for the same chic finish.


“Embrace flowing midis in statement prints and retro mini styles, then off-set them with trainers.”

 

 

Off-duty chic


For whatever’s on your weekend to-do list, trainers are the perfect comfy sidekick for everything from errand running to brunching. A classic trench coat looks effortlessly stylish when paired with something simple like jeans and a cream knit but steps into serious cool-girl territory when worn with fresh, chunky trainers. Alternatively, play up to the athleisure trend by teaming a sporty-chic trouser or a retro puffer jacket with your trainer of choice. Accessories and jewels should be kept to a minimum, as anything too fussy will counteract the cool vibe we're aiming for.


“All-white trainers look amazing with basics and minimal pieces, such as classic knits and black trousers.”
