The Autumn-Winter Men's Collection Preview
Wondering what you should be wearing this summer? Get an idea of what we’re heading towards by taking a look ahead to the autumn-winter menswear collections and see what’s du dernier cri.
It’s time to reshape your wardrobe with baggier, looser and simpler cuts. The silhouettes of the menswear collections are distinctly oversized, whether it be about loose hanging trousers or voluminous ... Continue Reading
As we enter the throes of exam term, and find ourselves consumed by the necessity to prioritise revision over such tempting distractions as shopping for dresses, May Week might seem like a somewhat distant event. And yet, with only a few weeks until the balls commence, the need to settle sartorial choices is becoming an increasingly imminent concern. With so much to do before the big night and so little time on our hands in which to prepare, why ... Continue Reading

It might seem a tad early to be looking back over the noughties, but oh, what a decade it was!
Kate Moss, face and body of this decade as much as she was the last, entered into a beautiful and commercially successful marriage with Topshop. It left us smiling as much as it did Philip Green. The high street/high fashion melange continued elsewhere: H&M were reigning with collaborations from Karl Lagerf... Continue Reading
'Indigo' ethical fashion t-shirt and hoodie quote COMPETITION
The trend for fast, throwaway fashion has abated in recent years, as an opposing voice has grown louder, calling for greater ethical practice within the industry. With the widespread popularity of charity shops and vintage clothes, ethical fashion could be seen as a passing fad which conveniently complements the return to retro.
Yet, the continuing inclination towards ethical... Continue Reading

Cambridge essays always begin with a brief description of what you aim to do over the next eight hours. Advice columns should be no different. Over the course of the next seven headings or so I shall traverse the mind-boggling amphitheatre that is… dress codes. *Gasp*. I know what you’re thinking. What do you do when you read that staple of formal invites, ‘white tie’? Do you want to know? This is a secret, so, be careful for what you wis... Continue Reading
The sun is beginning to lose fear and once more returns to our skies basking us in mediocre spring heat. To the fretful student this can only mean one thing; the examination season is upon us. Having spent our academic lives in a calendrical system in which the year finishes in June, it is impossible to disentangle the guilty association between late spring sunshine and impending exams.
While monotonous, increasingly desperate revision beg... Continue Reading
To my (very sensitive) sense of horror, the exam term websites, links, pamphlets, and motivational emails flooding into inbox and pigeon hole alike, have failed to address one very important issue. A contribution from the 2010-11 Student Handbook, (admittedly one of the more high status pamphlets), didactically remarks: “Candidates shall be dressed decently and not in a manner that is likely to create a dist...

Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan 'lightened' for the Elle 14th Anniversary Issue cover.
Controversy is most definitely this season’s must-have in the fashion world. Between the alleged tax evasions of Dolce and Gabbana, furore over size zero models and the resignation of Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld, the fashion world has racked up more scandals than Charlie Sheen. And we were beginning to think all the skeletons... Continue Reading
