In today’s terms a gilet (also known as a bodywarmer, waistcoat – or a vest in the US) commonly refers to a simply structured, straight-sided, sleeveless jacket primarily worn for extra warmth on nippy days.
It seems that over the last week we have gone from wet and windy to cold and in need of a jacket. Hence this blog where I have had a go at styling jackets, shackets and gilets in different ways.
It feels like the weather is definitely on the turn and with that in mind I thought it would be good to share with you some outfit inspiration ideas for transitional dressing.
Time to meet the team! As I write this the shop has not been open for seven weeks and sitting patiently in the side lines is the fantastic team that surrounds me waiting patiently to come back to work.
I think summer is about keeping your cool and what better way to do it than in a refreshing palette of laidback blues…so here is a blog post on styling summer blues.
We have been stocking Rose and Rose since I started Cleverly Wrapped in 2014 and it is one of my favourite brands as the pieces have a unique and bohemian feel to them which is the way in which I like to dress.
I often get asked about the people behind the brands who we stock so I have decided to start doing some new “meet the designer” blog posts where you can meet the designers and find out a bit about their journey.
About a year ago we started doing these outfit inspiration squares mainly for usage on Instagram but also they provide much of the content for our newsletters.
I’m very excited to say that tickets are now available to purchase for our SUMMER FASHION SHOW and are already selling fast!
We’ve had a bit of fun matching up some of our favourite men with our men’s scarves. Which one would you choose?
Who remembers the “More Dash Than Cash” edit that Vogue used to do? Well, here’s my very own Cleverly Wrapped version! I’ve taken our own label scarves and shown you how to refresh your wardrobe with an affordable and eye-catching accessory.
It’s that time of year when we need to start thinking about our winter wardrobe and how it’s going to work for us. So I’ve put together a few outfit inspiration ideas to help you on your way.
It’s that time of year again! The June silly season when your head is constantly spinning with logistics and you are permanently at a picnic, a party or a sporting event. You need a present at every turn be it a birthday, a teacher, a leaver, a hostess gift or a thank you. Whatever the occasion we are ready for you! Below is my personal selection of our best gifts for the summer season.
If you have been reading my blogs for a while you will know that I love to get multiple uses out of my clothes whether it be a scarf or a dress. So I thought it would be fun to choose three dresses from the current collection and show them styled in four completely different ways. I don’t think you will need much further commentary from me as hopefully the images speak for themselves.
If you are ever in the area Stockbridge is well worth a visit and in this blog I have put together a guide of my favourite places that I think would appeal to the Cleverly Wrapped customer.
One more blog on holiday styling and this time we are off to St Tropez. Sadly I have never been there but that’s not to say I can’t imagine what I would wear should the occasion arise!
Another blog to help you with your holiday styling inspiration and this time we are off to Santorini. Often described as the supermodel of Greek islands I thought it would be a good idea to dress appropriately.
If you’ve planned to head for the seaside this Easter weekend then I think you might have hit the jackpot. It looks like the weather is going to be gorgeous and it’s always such a treat when a public holiday coincides with great weather.
Imagine how happy your mother would feel if she received a cashmere jumper and pearls as her Mother’s Day gift?
To celebrate the launch of my new collection I’ve teamed up with handbag brand Hermosa London and influencer @luludumas to give you the chance to win the One Season dress featured in the image above and the co-ordinating navy bag and pouch by Hermosa.
