Zara is our ultimate destination for stunning work wear, and with so many iconic new pieces in stores right now, we had to select our faves that will work inside the office and out: 

Printed Shirt €9.95

This printed shirt is reminiscent of Matisse sketches – and the muted colour palette makes it the perfect companion for navy work trousers or blue jeans and runners on casual Fridays. 

High Rise Buttoned Trousers Details €39.95 

Tuck a white shirt into these with sandals for summer, or go all our clashing with an acidic green jumper and white chunky runners for a head-turning work look. 

These trousers could also be teamed with heels and a bodysuit for a simple but statement night out look. 

Hoodie With Seashells Details €29.95

Not all work spaces can get away with a hoodie, but the sea-shell detailing on this coral-coloured piece makes it an exception. 

Add a plisse midi skirt and mules for a fashionable but casual look. 

Dalmatian Print Maxi Dress €49.95

This polka-dot print dress will last you years as a classic-print piece.

Add a trench coat and baker boy cap for a trendy high-street look, or a leather biker jacker and boots for off-duty edgy style points. 

Tie-dye Blouse €59.95

Tie dye is having a major moment – and this tunic tucked slightly into black skinny jeans is a lewk. Hold on to it to pack in your suitcase for a summer holiday dress, too.  

Pearly Crossbody Bag €45.95

Looking for an accessory to take your wardrobe into the summer months? Look no further than this pearl-coated bag. 

Trench Coat With Belt €69.95

Trench coats are a classic staple piece, and they are having a resurgence as the coat du-jour. Try this light wash and light weight option on for size to add interest to the classic blue-jeans-white-tshirt combo.  

Blouse With Voluminous Sleeves €49.95 

A structured sleeve is giving us major 80s vibes, and with the decade being all the rage, this jewel-toned beauty is ticking all of the style boxes. 

Add to trousers for work or a denim skirt and boots at the weekend. 

Short Tunic Dress €39.95

 Add tights, a belt and boots to this colourful look when the weather is colder, or brave bare legs and a panama hat as we move into warmer months. 

Vinyl Technical Fabric Backpack €29.95

This handy backpack is ticking off the perspex trend in a big way. 




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. 

Weekday Short Colour Block Padded Jacket €110.60 

Pull&Bear double breasted coat in check €124.41

We're all most likely familiar with the incredible Marvel film Black Panther.

One of the biggest phenomenon's of 2018, and the highest grossing superhero movie of ALL TIME, the hiring of a nearly all-black cast was a pivotal moment in cinema.

The setting of Wakanda remains one of the most iconic aspects of the film, which mainstream fashion has gripped onto. 

Image: Polygon

The film's acclaimed costume designer Ruth E. Carter wanted to change the public's generalised perception of the African continent;

“I want people to have a new vision of the continent of Africa,” she told Refinery29.

“I want people to understand it's not just this dark place where everyone dresses the same with bones in their nose, living in a grass hut. People need to see this is a modern continent. It has a voice and an aesthetic.” 

Unfortunately, clothing brand Forever21 have released clothing inspired by the film, but have gotten into some hot water when it comes to the models chosen…

Fans of the film are NOT happy to see possibly the palest man in existence modelling merchandise for the infamously diverse movie, but some fans are claiming that the backlash is unfounded.

Forever21 tweeted; "Wakanda Forever, get the sweater here" last night, alongside a photo of a mens' top, named a 'Wakanda Forever Fair Isle Sweater.'

Twitter did it's job, to say the least. The clothing company quickly deleted the tweet, but the image is still on their website.

If you click on the link, it redirects you to another model, this time a diverse one, wearing a yellow and black sweater.

There's nothing wrong with a person of any race enjoying a movie's merchandise of course.

However, many users online were troubled at the perceived whitewashing, considering the film is arguably the first superhero of it's kind to appeal to all races, ages and genders.

Whitewashing has been appearing in fashion more and more recently, with Zara and H+M getting into trouble for missteps in their high street fashion.

Prada found itself getting backlash last week for a shop window display featuring a charm eerily reminiscent of a Blackface character.

We think Forever21 need to be a tad more careful with it's marketing campaigns…



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.

Some of these uber-glam coats are on sale this week (Black Friday, how are ya) so nab them before they sell out.

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?

As stunning the bride always looks at her wedding, draped in white silk and adorned with accessories galore, the guests also have a glamorous dress code to adhere to.

Finding the perfect outfit to wear to a winter wedding can be difficult, seeing as winter in Ireland mainly involves wrapping up as warmly as physically possible.

It's downright offensive to have to cover up our chic wedding attires because of the temperature, but pair these gowns with a glam coat and you'll be the belle of every wedding ball. (Apart from the bride, of course, upstaging her is a faux pas)

We've taken the time to have a snoop across the winter season's new outfits across every fashion site we can think of to find the ULTIMATE fashion frocks for guests.

It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it.

There you have it, gals, the fashion bible for wedding guests.

Aimee Connolly has painted the faces of some of Ireland's top stars with her skilled hand, and she has taken to sharing her skills with a generation of up-coming professional makeup artists. 

At a recent Masterclass of her's, hosted at The Galmont Hotel & Spa, the all-star makeup artist impressed us with not just her makeup but her outfit choices as well. 

The MUA donned what could arguably be described as the perfect key piece for nailing this season's most popular fashion trend. 


A post shared by Aimee Connolly – Makeup Artist (@aimeeconnolly_com) on

Leopard print has been all over the high street, and Aimee's long-line dress is a simple and stylish way to tap in to the trend. 

From high street hero store Zara, the classic cut means you can keep wearing it long after leopard print retreats back to the jungle of foregone fashion trends. 

Despite it being a trend print at the moment, it's so classic and reoccurring that there's no reason to banish it once this season has passed. 

Leopard print dress, €49.95, Zara

Coming in just under fifty quid, the dress can be worn with a myriad of other pieces to keep it looking fresh. 

Opt a-la-Aimee and pair it with pointed ankle boots for evening, or try a pair of white runners and a black leather jacket for a NYFW-inspired daytime look. 

The possibilities are pretty much endless with this look. 



Summer is in full swing, and while we're loving the opportunity to don some tropical, seasonal pieces, we still need classic staples to see us through outfit after outfit. 

We're all about that cost per wear ethos, so while we love fast fashion, it's important to consider all the ways to wear something before committing to the spend. 

We spotted this Zara shirt on the raile during our last after work browse, and it couldn't be more simultaneously staple and on-trend. 

Short pleated shirt €19.95

From the cut of the lapels to the button-down accent, this shirt is pretty damn chic. 

We're picturing this piece with denim shorts and flip flops on our summer vacay, and with checked trousers and boots for the working week. 

Need more styling inspiration? Here's four more ways we'll be wearing this staple piece all summer long: 

 Faux leather skirt €19.95, Black Suedette Block Heels €27.99

 Leopard Midi skirt €29.99, Sneakers €25.99

Pink culottes €17.49, Platform sandals €49.95

Ripped hem skinny jeans €55.00 White leather block heel boots €67.00



Is it us or does it feel like we all deserve a bit of a treat at that stage?

While shopping doesn't solve problems (or so we hear), a quick trip on the Zara website definitely makes us feel better. 

These hot new releases are perfect for the summer season and we just can't wait to wear them!

1. Rustic pareo

2. Cat's eye sunglasses

Anyway, that means that summer is here, and we're bloody excited.

So when the sun peaked out this morning, I was straight on to Zara to purchase 46 pairs of new shoes. Love yourself. 

Here are some of my faves of the moment:

1. Beaded Fringed Slides.

We are thrilled for Emily Ratajkowski, who just got hitched to producer Sebastian Bear-McClard.

The two have reportedly only been dating for several weeks, according to TMZ. The exciting news comes not long after speculation began that she had split from longtime boyfriend Jeff Magid.

The 26-year-old model, who first rose to fame after starring in the 'Blurred Lines' music video, recorded the happy event on her Instagram story.

The couple tied the knot in a New York City courthouse with witnesses, including Internet star The Fat Jewish.

They are so sweet! And we love that a pug was involved (that should really be a requirement for every wedding).

One of our other favourite parts of the ceremony? All of the funky, colourful suits involved!

While their courtship has been short, they know what they say – when you meet the one, you just know!

We are so happy for them, as are the We Are Your Friends actress' followers on social media.

"Congratulations… Enjoy every day together, time flies when you're with the one you love," a fan shared.

Another wrote, "Congratulations! Wishing you a happy and lucky life."

Congratulations again to the happy couple!
