New Look


Judging by the less than ideal weather we're having, winter has officially reared it's head.

That means more layers, chunky boots, and, best of all, new cosy jackets. 

Check out a few of our faves that will keep you toasty while slaying on the 'gram.

Popular high-street store New Look has been at the centre of a major controversy after it was uncovered that they were charging more for plus size clothing.

Maria Wassell said the store placed a “fat tax” on their plus sized range. She explained that a pair of green trousers were £22.99 in the plus size section, however, when she spotted the exact same pair of trousers in the standard size section they were £19.99, making them 15 percent cheaper than the plus-sized pair.

Many people have disagreed with Maria’s accusation, stating that the store has a right to charge more for clothes from their Curves range.

One Twitter user argued that plus size clothing needs more material, therefore, there is nothing wrong with charging more for them.

“I’m plus size, more fabric is required, more time to make the garment. Why shouldn’t I pay more?” one user asked.

Another said, “New Look’s ‘fat tax’ complaints are stupid, you’re using more material and material costs money. It’s like saying you can’t charge me more for a bigger bag of pick n mix.”

“Children’s clothes are priced according to age in the same style. Why should these be any different?” another said.

One woman shared, “I am plus size and noticed the price difference but wasn't offended by it. The £3 difference is reasonable considering they use more fabric than other sizes, if it was £10-£20 difference then I'd complain.”

Another said it was a bad move, "I kind of see why it's done, but it's still pretty unfair as we're taxed into submission already, there's no need to start on our clothes!"

"Same amount of work no matter what size. What about petite or short do they pay less than tall and large?" one asked.

New Look has responded to the backlash. They told Sky News: “To ensure pricing differences like these don't happen in future, we are in the process of reviewing the pricing structure of our plus-size collection in a way which works best for our customers and our business.”
"We are proud of the ranges we offer to our plus-size customers and value all customers, no matter what their body shape or size,” they added.

Do you think people should pay more for plus size clothes?



Faux real, winter is well and truly on its way. "What does this mean?" I hear you ask. It means… it's time to get FURRY.

Finding the perfect coat can be a difficult, time-consuming and frustrating task. We've decided to do all the work FUR you, and compile a list of every coat that has caught our eye on the high street this winter season.

So far, brands such a Monki, Mango, Topshop and Zara have impressed us with their glamorous faux fur, but there are some KILLAH vintage websites such as Nine Crows, ASOS Marketplace and Beyond Retro which sell vintage faux fur items that have us collapsed on the floor in sheer fashion overdrive.

I mean, you're welcome.

Fur can be a tricky business to navigate, finding the right one to suit you is honestly like picking your new home. You're seeking comfort, warmth, and a place to sleep.

What? You can't deny that those coats are prime nap-time material. They're warmer than our hearts after watching pupper videos on Youtube.

Which one's your favourite?

What comes to mind when you think of Alan Carr?

If it's an earnest expression, a broad smile, and wide-rimmed glasses, you're not alone.

In fact, along with his trademark laugh and filthy sense of humour, Alan's appearance has undoubtedly helped to create his on-stage persona.

So, it's no real surprise that Instagram was left reeling last night when the 41-year-old revealed a very different look.

Long gone is the goofy grin and animated expression, and in its place remains a bearded, brooding and, dare we say it, smouldering Alan.


I think being a hipster suits me

A post shared by Alan Carr (@chattyman) on

Alongside a photo of him staring unsmiling into the camera lens, Alan wrote: "I think being a hipster suits me."

Unfortunately for Alan, not everyone was impressed, with some fans and followers suggesting the comedian revert to his previous clean-shaven look.

"Didn't recognise you ….. please lose the beard," wrote one while another added: "Omg hunny no. Love u, but no." (sic)

"Sh*t didn't recognize you! Although, you could be a stand in for Tom in Castaway 2," joked another.

The verdict might be out on Instagram, but we gotta say, we're liking the new improved Alan.

If you've been snooping around the high street, watching press days on the SHEmazing Snapchat, or keeping an eye on the runways, you may have spotted a trend emerging for Autumn 2017. 

The summer was all about gingham, but now the hottest print to hit the high street is literally astronomical

Inspired by the now cult classic Prada Caheir Astrology bag and the amazing PFW Chanel show, featuring a real rocket, astrology and zodiac pieces influenced by the stars are everywhere this season.
