1. A Weekend In The Wardrobe Of The Duchess of Sussex

    A Weekend In The Wardrobe Of The Duchess of Sussex

    The Duchess of Sussex rarely suffers a fashion failure and we are sure that little Prince Archie's arrival will not interfere with her sartorial flair!
    Join us for a few days in Meghan's wardrobe and get some fashion inspiration for all of your weekend plans - day-time elegance, evening glamour, relaxed chic. It's all here!

    Try it for yourself: for the pantsuit, use a wool gaberdine with a little stretch, or a silk crêpe for more of an evening-wear look. For a blouse or a simple camisole, use a soft silk-satin or a microfibre crêpe de chine.

  4. Oscars 2019: Who Wore It Best?

    Oscars 2019: Who Wore It Best?

    You may have noticed that it is awards season in movie world, each ceremony bringing with it a new feast of fashion to pore over. One awards show trumps all others in Hollywood-land, however, when it comes to prestige, and that is, of course, The Academy Awards. The stars spend months preparing their Oscars looks for a world-wide audience - so we are obviously going to ask you, a part of that audience with us, to join us in deciding which leading ladies really made magic happen with their Oscars 2019 style.

    Who do you think wore it better?

    The Pinks.

    Pink was everywhere on this year's red carpet. These are our picks for the prettiest pinks of the bunch. Which one is your favourite?

    Dame Helen Mirren's trend-infused pleated tulle dress, by Schiaparelli.

  6. Goodness Gracious, Grammys! Fashion Hits From Music's Finest.

    Goodness Gracious, Grammys! Fashion Hits From Music's Finest.

    The 61st annual Grammy Awards took place in LA last night with its usual succession of wild and wonderful style moments. We think these five ladies took out the Best Dressed honours for 2019! Who was your favourite?

    Slinky, sequinned Versace. Lady Gaga was in one of the more sedate outfits of the evening, which is not a sentence we hear often...

  7. Did You Know...Custom Clothing Is More Accessible Than You Think!

    Did You Know...Custom Clothing Is More Accessible Than You Think!

    Did you know that recreating your favourite dress/skirt, kaftan or even that designer-inspired tweed jacket, can be as simple as purchasing some quality fabric and going to a great dressmaker.

    You would probably be surprised (and delighted!) to learn that the price of having a garment made up for you is often comparable to off-the-rack options. Most modern fabrics are woven in a wide width, so it can be very cost-effective to have your clothes custom-made, not to mention gratifying to replicate your (seen-better-days-but-fits-like-a-glove dress...).

    What you need:

    You do not need a designer. You just need the right dressmaker or tailor.  Joel & Son are always happy to recommend talented clothiers who have been shopping with us for years (and in some cases, decades).

  8. Four SAG Awards Looks That Stole The Show!

    Four SAG Awards Looks That Stole The Show!

    Putting the actual trophy winners from Sunday's Screen Actor's Guild Awards aside, these four ladies absolutely owned the red carpet and won the evening's fashion show hands down, in our couture obsessed opinion! Agree?

    Margot Robbie in Chanel. A white silk crêpe, stitched beautifully with inserts of hand-made golden and beige toned raffia.

  9. Coral - The Colour Of 2019.

    Coral - The Colour Of 2019.

    So, apparently, having a 'colour of the year' is a thing these days, and who better to make the call on this than colour institute, Pantone, AKA the universal language of colour standards.

    Their decision to name 'Living Coral' the 'one' for 2019 is based on research into what's been seen in movies, fashion, art, travel destinations etc, which basically means that this bright, honeyed, pinky orange was all over the runways in 2018, and therefore all over the stars, and therefore - soon to be all over all of us!

    Fun, bold corals and pretty peachy tones are popping up all over the place. Now it's your turn. Make a splash with it. It's a playful, expressive colour palette, so have some fun with it and look gorge.

  11. A Warm Welcome Back To: The Slip Dress!

    A Warm Welcome Back To: The Slip Dress!

    Want an easy, breezy update to your 2019 wardrobe? Silky slip dresses, that good old 90s fashion superstar, have bounced right back into style in all their slinky, comfy glory, and with them, they've brought their close cousin, the slip skirt.

    (Kate Moss was a 90s slip dress queen)

    If you remember them from the first time around, you're probably remembering how comfortable slip dresses are, and cheering that you can throw them on again without looking like you've wandered off the Party of Five set. And if you're new to the style, prepare to fall in love. These guys can go anywhere, a little bit slinky for evening wear or pared back with a sweater or tee for a more casual vibe. They're also a great transitional piece - warm it up with a knit on top and you've got a very Autumn (or English summer) friendly look.

  12. Red Carpet Winners: Golden Globes 2019

    Red Carpet Winners: Golden Globes 2019

    Hollywood has no time for a New Years hangover. It's straight into (self) celebration mode come the first week of January, and last night's Golden Globes kicked off the major ceremonies with a stylish bang.

    It was a return to colour after last year's all-black code (in recognition of the Time's Up movement). Lady Gaga sashayed onto the red carpet in an endless cloud of lusciously lilac Valentino. A divisive choice amongst critics and viewers, but we kinda love it.
