Ready To Wear: If Kate can wear the same thing twice, then so can I

"What do you think I should wear for the Jubilee?" I asked my other half last week.

Ready To Wear: My sunshine wardrobe may be loose, but it's tightly edited

Is there such a thing – in this age of fast fashion – as a working wardrobe?

Ready To Wear: Pastels may be fit for a princess but they’re not quite real life

The dust has long settled on the gorgeous candy-coloured confections that took the summer catwalks by storm.

Ready To Wear: I love it when Miuccia Prada and I have the same sartorial opinion

Miuccia Prada is nothing if not contrary.

Carla Bruni Sarkozy's judgement regarding what to wear and when and how to wear it is faultless

Carla Bruni Sarkozy: Au revoir to France's first lady of style

Equally bizarre to me is this season's love affair with printed denim

Ready To Wear: Resisting the urge to change clothes may be no bad thing

Fashion is attention seeking.

Ready To Wear: These hats are so lovely they could quite turn your head

The season is almost upon us and all those interested in hats – and there's no better time of year to celebrate their flamboyancy, of course – might like to pay a visit to the genteel city of Bath for inspiration.

Ready To Wear: Borrowing your mother's clothes is a very hard habit to kick

Is it acceptable for a grown woman to wear her mother's clothes?

Ready to Wear: Some people are natural fashion plates – but the rest of us are not

Victoria Beckham was once rarely seen without a baseball cap jammed on
Samantha Cameron with Michelle Obama yesterday

Susannah Frankel: Samantha and Michelle, a contrast in style

Feeling comfortable in one's clothes speaks volumes, as the appearance of Samantha Cameron and Michelle Obama out and about during the visit went to prove.

If ever proof were needed that, long term, the loudest noise is made by the most talented designers, and that their skill is more important than any slick marketing and/or money-spinning licensing and accessories, it lies here.

Ready To Wear: A decade of elegance for gifted Elbaz at Lanvin

How good it was to see Alber Elbaz celebrating his 10th anniversary at the helm of Lanvin.
