Summer without the Sunshine

Claire Lopez Chinos, Cropped Trousers, Trousers Leave a Comment

Right, I’m going to do a little bit of reverse psychology on the weather and write about trousers in the hope that this will somehow herald the return of the sunshine… Clearly, I am actually aware that this will have zero bearing on the British climate. But anything’s worth a try, right? So if you’re bored of your jeans, here …

Flat and Fugly but a little bit lovely

Claire Lopez Flatforms, Footwear Leave a Comment

Flatforms – they aren’t exactly the prettiest of things but they’re super comfortable and give you a little bit of height in the process. No bad thing in my book (all 5 foot 2″ of it). The good old Birkenstock is back and looking bang on trend, along with a whole host of other ‘stocks. Whether you go espadrille, cork …

Jumping for Joy

Claire Lopez Jumpsuit Leave a Comment

Well now that the sun is no longer shining, I can’t say that I am exactly jumping for joy at the never-ending at-homeness of this and the weather means it’s definitely back to the need for comfy clothes. So this week I thought I’d take a look at the jumpsuit – which bar the obvious bathroom-going issues – can be …

Pretty Little Thing

The Summer of Straw

Summer is upon us, the sun is shining (thank goodness) and nothing says summer more than a bit of straw. While you may not need your regular handbag – I haven’t used one for months now – a straw number is useful for bunging everything in for those inevitable park trips and  will make you feel like you’re on holiday. …

With another bank holiday weekend and half term (not that it makes much difference apart from the daily home schooling battles are just replaced with different ones instead) within touching distance, it has to be time to look at the sundress. Here’s the edit: minis and midis to maxis, strappy and short sleeved, plain, print and embroidered, there’s a whole …

The Buffet Dress – the phenomenon that swept the fashion world last summer is here to stay and these loose fitting numbers are perfect for sunny lockdown days when what’s called for is an easy to wear dress that you can chuck on. Never mind the fact that they hide a whole multitude of eating, drinking and lack of exercise sins. A double …
