Week Two of our Christmas Fortnight and we’re well into December. And, you know how it is….You’re getting ready for Christmas, you are perhaps indulging in one too many mince pies and the pounds are rather annoyingly piling on.

Zero time, Max style

White jeans. How do I love the idea of thee. In theory. In practice, I am not convinced that mine is the life which accords with their pristine perfection. (Fraternise with children; travel to work by tube; by nature rather clumsy….) However, this does not stop me looking at other people wearing white jeans and feeling wistful. Particularly Hanneli and Emmanuelle Alt, the beyond-chic Editor of French Vogue. Things we must take from the above: white jeans should be worn with heels (I saw a FAB leopard print pair of pointed-toe slingbacks at the Boden A/W press day last week – and will be clicking away come July, when they are available); great accessories; and keep it simple. Witness Alt doing what she does best on another occasion: See, simple? I reckon it’s doable. What you need is a perfect, perfectly simple shirt, loosely tucked into your jeans (skinny cropped and boyfriend-fit options below). I seem to have a Donna IDA obsession today – but both these blouses are ideal. IDA – designed by Donna herself – is a fabulous range of wear-anywhere and all-the-time pieces – I LOVE the Mrs Thatcher pussy bow blouse.  (Do also check out Equipment…


Maternity Monday – Part 1: How to dress a bump

Welcome to Maternity Monday! Fear not: for the bump-free and the ‘no intention of being with bump any time soon’, normal service shall resume tomorrow. We’ve just come over a little bit pregnancy today. Call it the Kate Middleton effect. This is the first of three special posts: come back soon for  an indispensable beauty guide from the brilliant Grace Timothy – beauty editor/guru and writer of the fabulous The Pregnant Beauty Guide. But, first up, because style is a subject so very dear to my heart (as my bank balance knows to its cost), I bring you the W&W guide to dressing your bump. You’re pregnant? Congratulations! You are about to embark upon the best adventure ever. You are also about to embark upon Wardrobe Confusion. Fancy looking like this? Then avoid doing what I did when first pregnant, and temporarily forget how you actually dress. If you never wear pattern/dresses/a blazer over leather leggings/dunagrees, why on earth would you do so now? I think of this when I see pictures of Kate Middleton (I cannot for the life of me remember to call her the Duchess of Cambridge. She looks exactly like a Kate Middleton to me) with her teeny weeny…

Meet Antonia. She’s a stylist, deputy fashion editor at The Express, owner of a sausage dog called Holly, and the self-named ‘sartorial guinea pig’ behind the fabulous Thirty Days blog.
