Posh Joggers

Claire Lopez Joggers, Trousers Leave a Comment

What has all the comfort of a jogger but with way more style? Well, actually it’s just a jogger but one that is in a different material. It has all the same features – the elasticated or drawstring waist and the looser leg shape which is either tapered or cuffed at the hem. Add a few details if you want and Bob’s your uncle, you’ve got …

Spring Shackets

The stars have aligned – both big kids have decided that working in their bedrooms is the way forward and the baby has also decided it is her nap time which means a few minutes to speed type this blog before I hear ….’Muuuuuuummmmmmy!’ from the top of the stairs and the baby wakes up. Fashion loves a hybrid and this week it’s …

Stay at Home Style: Skirts

Claire Lopez Skirts 1 Comment

It’s taken me a few weeks to get my sh*t together and get back to blogging as it turns out being Miss Trunchbull is a full-time job. Oh and the baby… And while life has changed beyond all recognition and I cannot physically see clients, I need for my own sanity to get back to doing my job in one …

Often the hardest thing to find are the basics – the building blocks of your wardrobe that you turn to time and again.

Claire Lopez Boots, Menswear 2 Comments

It’s been a while since I did a Menswear special so I thought it was high time I was back on the case and I’m going to kick off 2020’s editions with a footwear focus. Given spring feels a long time away despite technically being here, it’s a good time to look at boots as there are several styles you …

It’s nearly March so it’s time to look at some florals which still continue to be a huge trend for the season ahead.

Pretty in Pastels

Claire Lopez Colour, Pastels Leave a Comment

In stark contrast to the sharpness of last week’s monochrome, this week I’m looking at another of the season’s key trends – pastel. These gorgeous yellows, blues, lilacs and greens look fab with denim and will certainly help to add some lightness and freshness to your spring wardrobe. As the weather warms up, swap your blue denim for white – …

Mean Business in Monochrome

Claire Lopez Houndstooth, Monochrome Leave a Comment

It’s back to business with my monthly spotlight on workwear and this month, I’m looking at the classic combination that is monochrome. Dogstooth or houndstooth (actually has nothing to do with dogs or teeth but just refers to the pattern itself) is where it’s at. If you are after something to lift your work wardrobe then this could be it. …

The Beauty of Blue

Claire Lopez Blue, Colour 1 Comment

The colour of 2020 is Classic Blue according to the colour officials, Pantone. Seeing as this is a colour which is supposed to bring peace and tranquillity and instil calmness and confidence, no wonder blue is a great colour to wear to the office. So this blog is all about gorgeous shades of blue – classic or not – and with smart and casual pieces …

Think Pink

Claire Lopez Colour, Pink Leave a Comment

While Classic Blue may be the colour of Spring Summer 2020, I have got a bit of a crush on pink at the moment because it’s such an uplifting friend on dismal January days. And also because it’s a hard working chap which goes with all the usual neutral suspects no problem, but may also surprise you at how well it also works with some …
