Each week we take delight in scrolling social media, sharing our favourite fashion posts that inspire, educate, and entertain.


Bringing back the retro suiting in a Gucci Aria wool and silk jacket, Harry Styles won the Best British Single award at the BRITs for Watermelon Sugar. Pairing his look with a signature Gucci bamboo top handle bag, Styles has us coveting tonal browns and flared pant legs.


The sister act we didn’t know we needed until now, Nicole and Sofia Richie have collaborated on the former’s House of Harlow 1960 spring collection. Available on Revolve, the collection pays tribute to a ’70s summer, all the while capturing the sisters’ distinct styles.


Singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama is truly the belle of the BRIT Awards, wearing a Balmain haute couture 2019 gown featuring purple organza with pleated ruffles on crinoline and jewels by Bulgari.

She says “I remember when Olivier came out with his first collection it was these amazing structural, ornate dresses. Every single collection since then has been such a major fashion moment. I’m so honored to be wearing this piece- it’s absolutely beautiful and so detailed.”



Influencer Lydia Tsegay is celebrating Aje Resort 2022’ Scent of Summer’ across the world in Sweden in the highly anticipated Vanades Cut Out Dress in fuchsia. A signature waist cut-out dress accentuated by voluminous puff sleeves, is this the dress of our dreams?


Local fashionista Rickie Dee is snapped in Ena Pelly’s minimalist faux fur jacket in a bone and black colourway, providing all the snugness and style we need for the coming months. The jacket is made from 100% recycled plastic bottle fabrication, proving that luxury can be ethical too.


Nicola Coughlan is living our prom dreams in Jovani, and we think Penelope à la Bridgerton would approve. Captioning the photo with ‘Feelin Jovani’, Coughlan is cleverly referencing Real Housewife of New York and singer Luann de Lesseps, who loves Jovani so much that she penned a single ‘Feelin’ Jovani’.


Camilla Freeman-Topper shows us how lounging is done best, wearing the Camilla and Marc limia tracksuit in sage. Made from a super soft, cosy brushed fleece, is this what living feels like?


Taylor Swift dazzled at the BRITs in a two-piece by Miu Miu and Jessica McCormack’s signature Gypset earrings. While Swifties are interpreting her post as another clue that her re-recording of 1989 is releasing next, we haven’t taken a deep dive into this theory. However, we do know that the Miu Miu ensemble featured white organza embellished with sequins and crystals, with floral detailing all over.


Model and stylist Dara Allen poses next to an enviable wall of shoes, opting for a bold t-shirt dress and statement metallic eyeshadow, again breaking down the boundaries of conventional fashion glamour.
