10 hot ideas that will trickle into your wardrobe come autumn

1 FLIGHTS OF FANCY Expect even more reasons to dress up and go out with the season’s take on high glamour. Look to Richard Quinn, Erdem, Michael Halpern, and Emilia Wickstead for inspiration. 2 REALITY BITES Not big on bombast? See Victoria Beckham, Roksanda, Petar Petrov and Rejina Pyo’s excellent takes on wardrobing. 3 THE RETURN OF BLACK As conversations around consumption reach new highs, black returns as a forever chic, foolproof investment.

‘she faces the same challenges we all do’

I believe motherhood is a leveller. It is raw and full of unknowns. I started Happy Mum, Happy Baby because I truly believe that it doesn’t matter who you are, what you have or what you do – we’re all facing a lot of the same things when it comes to parenthood. I think this episode of the podcast is a fab example of that. We were both a little nervous to begin with but, behind the scenes, the duchess was just as thoughtful, giving and unassuming as she was when we hit record. She’s really passionate about the work she’s doing in Early Years: she’s clearly listened to the scientists, practitioners and care providers to discover all she can, as she talks in such an informed manner. It’s clear she loves…

win tickets to a grazia screening of misbehaviour

ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY, which is 8 March, Grazia is urging readers to down tools for the day – or just an hour, if that’s more doable – and say no to all the ‘invisible labour’ that keeps most households running smoothly. And what better way to do that than to watch an inspiring film that reflects on a real, and important, moment in women’s history. Jennifer Hosten was the first black woman to win the Miss World contest. An entrant in the pageant in 1970, held in London, she took the crown at a time when those off-stage were speaking out on the event’s place in society. Now, new film Misbehaviour explores the fascinating dichotomy between the women on both sides of the debate. Grenada-born Jennifer, played by British rising star…

word on the street

COLOUR-POP PANTS A pair of ‘kapow!’ pants – think Crayola-bright colours – is the fastest way to look ‘now’. THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT Knee-length shorts are here for the long haul. Wear them with knee-high boots now and you won’t have to save them for summer. POSH PADDING Think quilts are just for snuggling under? Think again! They’re the street-style pack’s favourite shelter from stormy weather. BI-COLOUR Spring has seen boots, coats and bags getting the Beetlejuice treatment. Our verdict? Two-tone = the perfect trend for indecisive dressers. HELL FOR LEATHER Leather separates, in a multitude of shades, made their buttery softness felt on the street-style circuit. NEW COLOUR COMBOS Look-twice colour combinations have the street-styler seal of approval. If it makes you double-take, you’re on the right track. ACCESSORIES ACCORD It’s now acceptable, nay encouraged, to be matchymatchy in the…

2 london’s bright young things

IT’S HARD TO remember a time in recent history when the simple act of getting dressed has felt as complicated as it does now. Do you know the origins of your denim? The carbon footprint of your T-shirt? Whether or not the faux fur on your back really is cruelty free? It can be difficult to figure out how best to approach one’s wardrobe – the meaning of it on a personal level, but also its impact on a larger societal one. Even if your interest in fashion is casual at best, you’ll no doubt have noticed the fashion world has been grappling with big, existential conundrums in recent years. And they carried right over into the new decade and ran an undercurrent from the men’s and couture shows that took…

you’ve divorced before you’re 30

MY WEDDING, IN May 2010, was beautiful. Great dress. Cool venue. Fun speeches. That inevitable bit at the end of the night when everyone sways along to New York, New York. But within two years, something unexpected happened. I fell in love with someone else. When I confessed this to my best friend Laura, we quickly realised that neither of us really knew how to get divorced. I was 29 and I had a responsible job – I even wrote columns about feminism. And yet I had paid more attention to the small print on my honeymoon insurance than I had to the implications of legally uniting myself with another person. Politicians have been talking about ‘no fault’ divorce for decades. Currently, though, if you want to exit a marriage quickly, one…
