Fashion brand, From My Mother’s Garden, has won the prestigious BRITISH BRAND OF THE YEAR at an industry awards event held at The Mayfair Hotel in London.
With COP 27 currently taking place and the environmental matter being even more under our attention, there is still much confusion around which brand is really sustainable according to the younger consumers, Gen Zers.
Launched back in May and consisting of an eight-week project, Stella McCartney and Lenovo have revealed the winner of Central Saint Martins’ sustainable design competition.
As we pack away our treasured summer dresses, shorts, and skirts, many of us might be feeling a little miffed that the warm weather is slowly disappearing.

White Tank Tops

It turns out that white tank tops aren’t just for summer! And what welcome news that is. Brands are investing in quality staples more than ever before and consumers are following suit. Make your staples collection bulletproof with a quality white tank top that provides a solid base layer during the colder months.

Whether you’re buying skirts, dresses or coats, the fashion gods have spoken: the longer the better. Add a touch of glamour to your evenings with an elegant maxi dress and combat those chilly evenings with some layering underneath. Make your maxi the focus of your outfit and pair it with fitted garments for a silhouette that looks flattering on all body types.
Thanks to the Italian brand Valentino, fuchsia pink is having a major moment. Gone are the days when pink is just for young girls and Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods. Women of all ages are stepping out in the season’s hottest colour and brightening up the high street whilst doing it.
Step back predictable greys and blues. Pink’s coming through!
Micro Mini Skirts

When they say mini, they mean mini. Hemlines are more daring than ever this season and thanks to thermal tights and leggings, micro miniskirts are cold weather-proof too! Pair them with a killer pair of knee-high boots for a truly head-turning look.
Swish sway, fringing is here to stay! It’s the thing we never thought we needed. With fringing, your clothes have a language of their own, moving with your walk and bringing some serious attitude. Mini -skirts are being elongated in a there-but-not-there way whilst sweaters are graduating from cosy staples to outfit showstoppers. In a similar way to your maxi silhouettes, make one fringing piece your centrepiece and pair it with understated accessories.

Bringing some high-octane drama to your life is leather. No longer is the material limited to biker jackets, boots, and bags. Tailored leather is making a splash with corsets, tailored trousers and fitted dresses taking over the runways. Sophisticated and sexy at the same time, say hello to your new occasion-wear staple.
There are so many different trends you can incorporate into your winter wardrobe this year to feel stylish and on-trend. Whether it be leather, fringing, micro mini-skirts or maxis, there’s a trend to suit everyone. Which one will you try out?
