THE TREND: MIXED FLORALS HATTIE BRETT EDITOR With boots or sandals, there’s nothing easier to wear than a floral maxidress, so I was glad to see that the new-season spin is purposefully mixing them up. THE TREND: PASTELS REBECCA LOWTHORPE FASHION DIRECTOR I’m going for a soft sorbet palette this spring, but to avoid looking like a giant sickly sweet, I’ll be wearing with khaki, grey and off-white. THE TREND: UTILITY SOPHIE HENDERSON SHOPPING EDITOR Call me dull, but uber-practical pockets and easy-wearing fabrics are my 2019 mood. I’ll be polishing up my cargo pants with feminine tops, gold hardware and low heels. THE TREND: HANDCRAFT CHLOÉ MEDLEY CASTINGS & BOOKINGS ASSISTANT I can’t say I’ve ever used rope to hold my trousers up before… but I’ll give it a go! I love natural textures and tones, paired with black for…

Is there anything more thrilling than the idea of packing away your coats and cashmere in favour of silk dresses and pastels? While we might not be there just yet (thanks, British weather), in our Big Fashion Issue we’ve trawled the shops to find the best pieces to buy now and wear for months, no years , to come. In fact, we’ve made it our mission to help you find something you’ll love for a lifetime.

1. NON-MOVER MICHELLE OBAMA AT THE GRAMMYS There is a fine art to being able to tip up to any occasion and make it considerably better by dint of your presence alone. 2. NEW IN EMILIA CLARKE FT JASON MOMOA Two of our GoT faves will host the Oscars, in the wake of about 17 other people being fired from the role for doing bad things. We’re happy: they’re pretty. 3. UP HANSON, ALL GROWN UP As debuted on Lorraine Kelly’s show last week. Last seen looking very young and not nearly this good, while singing MMMBop, in the ’90s. As The Sun remarked: ‘Mmm hot’. 4. UP KENNETH THE PAGE While rewatching 30 Rock (All 4), our love for K the P has reignited; we’re therefore out of our minds to learn he’s starring in Waitress the musical in London’s…

YOU EVER heard of ‘Eveing’? Probably not, I only just THIS MINUTE christened it, though you’ll recognise the underlying concept once I explain. Eveing is that very female dynamic, in which one woman ingratiates herself into the affections, relationships and/or work of another, then tries to replace her. I’ve named it in honour of All About Eve , the 1950 film which has just reopened as a play starring Gillian Anderson and Lily James (plot spoiler: an ambitious fan endears herself to a revered older Broadway star, chips away at her friendships and sanity from within, then appropriates her status and success). And bloody hell! It’s weird . And bloody hell! It happens. Eve is the girl at school who loves everything you wear so much she starts copying you, and…

1 the wonderkid who woke up new york

IT DIDN’T MAKE for an auspicious start to last week’s New York Fashion Week that there was more chatter about who wouldn’t be there than who would. With Calvin Klein sitting out the season (following Raf Simons’ departure in November) and Rodarte the latest hot ticket to skip town (the Mulleavy sisters showed in Los Angeles), it felt like the city that never sleeps might hardly be worth getting out of bed for. But, steady on. This is a city with grit; you’d be silly to count it out. And so, NYFW delivered its big twist in the first act, served up in the form of Tomo Koizumi. Not heard of him? That’s understandable. The Japanese costume designer was plucked from relative obscurity just a month ago by super-stylist Katie Grand,…

new york’s beauty rules

BAMBI LASHES At Brandon Maxwell, make-up maestro Tom Pecheux layered lashings of mascara with falsies for an OTT doe-eye. THE BIG SMOKE Forget a cut crease, enhance your eyes with a smudgy smoke à la Jeremy Scott. PERFECT PAIRING Rodarte matched eyelids, lips and nails with punchy pink and red glitter. DAZZLE DOTS A well-placed pearl or stone can bring out your features – note Christian Siriano’s crystal freckles, or the pearly eyes at Adeam. HEAD GEAR Hair was dressed up for the Grammys and the catwalk followed, with fresh flowers woven into wavy hair at Rodarte.…
