small is beautiful

When the February issue of Red hit newsstands last year, my heart sank. We’d written it a few months earlier, before the third lockdown had been announced and when life felt full of possibilities. The coverline ‘Make plans, have adventures’ couldn’t have been more out of kilter with what we were about to endure. What the following months did make me realise was that changes don’t have to be seismic to be meaningful. Although our ‘big plans’ for the year ahead might have been scuppered, we still sought out ways to enhance our lives – even if that was going for longer walks, cooking more creatively and finally embarking on the pile of books beside our beds. It proved that new intentions, no matter how small, are beautiful. But actually, maybe…

We all know that the starting point for any great outfit is quality, flattering basics. And who doesn’t want to be that woman who reaches into her wardrobe to find a perfect knit, expertly tailored shirt, black trousers that fit like a dream and this timeless classic coat, which looks just as good belted over cargo trousers and trainers as it does a glitter party dress and heels.

THE STATEMENT EARRINGS An instant way to up your accessory game, statement earrings are always a winner. This time, opt for ornate gold flowers or crystal beads that feel dressy while retaining that everyday appeal. THE KNEE-HIGH BOOT Stone, cream and off-white are the updated shades taking our love for knee-high boots to new heights. These lighter tones make moody midnight dresses pop and give tweed culottes a contemporary edge. THE NECK SCARF There’s something refreshing about the return of the silk scarf and its ability to elevate any neckline. Simply tuck into zip-neck jumpers or jumpsuits and layer on the gold chains… THE CHAIN BAG The chain bag is the perfect combo of cool accessory and statement piece of jewellery in one. Wear it cross-body to add a flash of gold or silver to your look. THE…

spotlight on varley

‘I come from a very sporty background; my father was a professional footballer and I was into running, competing at a very high level,’ explains Mead. ‘I found it really hard to find training clothes that were functional and fashionable, so Ben and I created Varley to deliver quietly stylish, timeless, versatile pieces. I want women to feel polished and put-together when they wear our clothes.’ Varley’s designs are on trend and super stylish, but not at the expense of performance or practicality. The Cavanagh raincoat, with its oversized silhouette, asymmetric hem and enveloping hood, is just one example. ‘It is completely waterproof, so it will keep you protected from the elements when you stand on the side of a rainy football pitch on a Saturday morning, but you will still…

SHINE OF THE TIMES I’m taking a tip from Victoria Beckham’s S/S 22 collection and investing in a glittery skirt for spring. Juicy fruit hues take sparkle away from Christmas and into cool contemporary territory. I’ll be slouching a chunky knit over the top. WEEKEND VINYL A pair of high-shine black trousers is top of my wish list this month. I’ll wear them with classic pieces, such as a navy knit, my Chanel ballet pumps and a leopard print coat. SWEETHEART NECKLINES AND CHERUB CHAINS I love the new sweetheart neckline tops and bodysuits that are all over the high street this month, a style homage to cult US label Khaite, whose cream and olive green knitted versions are the dream. I’ll be investing in this more budget-friendly but just as chic navy one at…
