OK, so it mightn’t feel like it, but we absolutely promise longer evenings, warmer weather and cuter outfits are just around the corner.

And with that in mind, we thought it was essential to ensure you were prepared for the overhaul your wardrobe will no doubt experience once Spring eventually sets in.

Ladies, let’s take a look at some of the outfits you’ll be rocking in the not-to-distant future.

Over the past number of years, celebs have donned gorgeous dresses, from the out-there glitzy ensembles, to the classic demure looks.

Here are 20 of our favourite award show dresses that we're all still drooling over years later in Shemazing HQ:

We’ve actually just about given up on our teenage dreams of looking like a real celebrity.

Sure we do a mean liquid-liner-strong-brow combo and yup,we’ve been known to rock some pretty on fleek, red carpet worthy looks.

But we’ve now old and wise enough to come to the conclusion that constantly sporting SnapChat-ready hair, make-up and accessories (we salute you, famous folk) is just too overwhelming for normal beings.

Suzanne Jackson

Still, we’re not ones to pass on the opportunity to occasionally go serious Kardashian-Jenner glam for a really special event – and that’s where Starla dresses comes in.

Rosanna Davidson

Located on Dublin’s South William Street, but with a great website for anyone based outside the capital, the outlet is basically the go-to place for the likes of Rosanna Davison, Holly Carpenter, Suzanne Jackson, Nicola Hughes, Hazel O’Sullivan, Vogue Williams and Lynn Kelly.

And let’s face it: those lovely ladies go to A LOT of fancy-pants social events.

Starla hires out designer dresses from just €80 – think the head-turning Sierra dress, or the sexy All Saints gold eagle number, the latter of which has been seen on Rosanna. Or alternatively, borrow a serious statement number from Alex Perry for €200 or less – he’s the Aussie designer that’s hugely popular with the likes of Sandra Bullock, Giuliana Rancic, and Ariel Winter.      We furthermore got more than a little excited when we spotted fabulouso frocks to purchase from just €65. And *whisper it* Starla on occasion sells off former rental stock (which is always in perfect condition) for a fraction of the original price: at the moment we have one very keen eye on this stunning hand-painted Holt Miami dress. Kim Kardashian loves the label, and while it would have been (gulp) more than €1,000 to buy, it is now on sale for just €180… #swoon.   For those that don’t do dresses – the store and website both have a brilliant selection of accessories and fur for sale: think bags, bangles and rings, not to mention [pictured above] amazing €30 bobble hats that have just arrived in for winter.  Here, with a debs/wedding/ball/graduation spring in our step, SHEmazing! has rounded up the very best that Starla currently has to offer…

Michelle Keegan's A/W Lipsy range landed in London last night, and while we may not be able to look like the actress, we can still dress like her. 

As expected, most of the range includes a lot of short, plunging, tight dresses (which might not be everyone's style) but what came as a big surprise is how ah-mazing her collection of coats is. 

Faux Fur Trim Hooded Puffer Jacket – €110

Cowl Neck Poncho – €45

Michelle obviously realises that we can't go around in tiny lace outfits all winter, so her faux fur trimmed outerwear really is on point, coming in various styles, shapes and colours. 

As well as being super chic, the outer wear looks VERY cosy and warm, something we need on cold and rainy days. 

Black Suede Belted Coat – €165

Reversible Faux Fur Trim Puffer Coat – €140

Yup, she really hit the nail on the head with this collection, as the functional yet stylish coats won't cost you a bomb, and are sure to last you for many winter days ahead.

Check out our faves from Mrs Wright's a/w collection: 

Faux Fur Trim Parker – €135

Faux Fur Trim Hooded Parker – €135

Luxe Shearling Coat – €180

Quilted Wool Blend Coat – €130

Detachable Faux Fur Collar Coat – €165




There’s nothing like picking up a fashion bargain online – and then having the package delivered to discover a perfect fit.

And while we’ve long been huge fans of dresses.ie – it launched in 2007 – for serious style steals, lately we’ve fallen in love with the site all over again.

That’s because it’s been given a snazzy overhaul and now looks oh-so sleek.

The same celebrity-inspired fashions are all still there in dress form, along with a smattering of tops, skirts, and jackets for those looking for something a little different. 

An Irish brand, it also wins points for being really affordable; even the more upmarket/event dresses come in at under €100, while a load of stock is priced at €40 or less (hurrah!).

Here, SHEmazing! takes a peek at our favourite pieces from revamped site…


Paper Dolls navy and white 2-in-1 dress, €80; 
Chi Chi floral print Bardot red midi dress, €80; 
Kim draped midi dress in maroon €49


Vesper Tammie dress, €87;
Paper Dolls navy floral Bardot dress, €76; 
Florence zip detail skater dress, €29


AX Paris wine plunge front bodycon, €37;
Allie satin midi emerald dress, €35;
AX Paris lace mini dress, €60



We can't really believe it's the end of August already. #supersadsies.

But as one month ends, another month of new fashion starts. And today, we searched our favourite high-street stores to find the best trends for you to grab before going back to college.

So if you want to up your wardrobe game, SHEmazing! has a few key trends to try to nail for your first-week-of-college outfits:


Button-down skirts

It seems the button-down, A-line skirts are here to stay for the next season. As the Seventies trend was HUGE over summer, it's going to stick around for A/W. Give denim or suede a go and you're sure to be on top of the style game when classes start back.


Shirt dresses

Shirt dresses are so simple and elegant – as well as super easy to just throw on for your 9am lecture. Chloé and Vivienne Westwood rocked the catwalk with these simple pieces but you are able to get great look-a-likes on the High Street.



The boho babe trend is back for autumn 2015 but this time round, the look has a much darker feel to it. Go for loose silhouettes and layers of moody autumnal colours to be right on trend. 



Fluffy bags, coats, gilets and shoes were a major hit on the runway for next season. So if you want to be warm, snuggly and stylish this semester – go for these cute pieces. 



Actress and comedian Melissa McCarthy has revealed the reason she decided to design a plus-size clothing line.

Melissa was talking to Redbook magazine when she spoke about the difficulty she had in finding a dress for the 2011 Oscars, saying: “Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anyone to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers … Very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people, and they all said no.”

The Bridesmaids star also spoke about the hard time she has when shopping: “When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed.”

Thankfully, Melissa knows exactly what is important in life – and it isn’t fame or the “perfect” body: “Success doesn’t define us [her and her husband], even though we love what we do. The important thing is our family and kids.”

Well, we hope those silly designers are kicking themselves now!



The biggest fashion night of the year has happened and we’re not really sure what to think!

There was a definite return to old Hollywood glamour, with lace, smooth curls and red lips a-plenty while those looking for a modern flair opted for dresses with cropped tops.

As usual there were fashion disasters, with some usually dependable actresses surprising us with bad decisions, but there were also a few stunning successes.

All in all, we’re a little underwhelmed – see what you think!



As you grow older, your tastes and preferences may change. The flares you were obsessed with a few years back might cause you to cringe a bit today – we can’t say we’re not guilty of that!

If any of these sound a bit too familiar to you, then there’s a chance you need to revamp your wardrobe:

  • When you’ve finally reached your ideal weight and your old clothes don’t fit you anymore.
  • When you start a new job and realise your summer shorts, skimpy dresses and leggings just won’t make the cut.
  • When your red clothes no longer look red.
  • When your blue clothes no longer look blue.
  • When you can’t remember why you bought certain clothes or why anyone ever let you wear them.
  • When you’ve finally realised that your ‘style’ is attracting the wrong crowd.
  • When your jeans are a bit rough around the edges.
  • When you reach for the top shelf and your jacket rips.




The National TV Awards were held last night so we have collected some of our favourite looks of the night for you.

Michelle Keegan was stunning as usual in a high neck clinging cream floor-length dress, not too sure about the hair though, hmm.

Rochelle Humes wore a lace navy-blue dress with long sleeves, we just love that colour.

Doctor Who star Jenna Louise Coleman wore a floor-length black dress with 70’s style sleeves and great neck detailing.

Jacqueline Jossa may be our winner of the evening however, the Eastenders looked simply ethereal in a cream glistening dress that was sheer enough for the perfect amount of skin exposure.






Kate Middleton is 32 today, so we decided to remind ourselves of some of her best looks to date.

The yellow dress is light, summery and a very feminine look, while the turquoise Jenny Packham number in the middle is incredibly sophisticated, with beautiful lace detailing. If only we had somewhere to wear it to…. sigh.

And for the grand finale, it couldn’t be anything less than the adorable frock dress worn by the Princess as she emerged from St. Mary’s Hospital in London on the 22nd July following the birth of her son Prince George.

Happy Birthday Kate!
