AND/OR

AND/OR are one of John Lewis's new in house, exclusive to them, fashion brands.

Their jeans and denim have a great reputation and rightly so - they have loads of different styles, cuts, washes and colours and believe 'Great denim works with everything and it makes everything work'.  But as well as brilliant denim the rest of AND/OR's collection is great too. Their clothes are versatile, flattering and wearable, as are their fun accessories and shoes. And being John Lewis the quality is good too.

I love this embroidered, velvet bomber - it can be worn layered under a big coat or over a knitted polo neck in the cold or worn as a jacket on its own once the milder weather returns. I love the detailing and colours. 

I am always on the look out for a well cut, good quality and (hopefully) amusing slogan t-shirt and this OH WHAT FUN one is perfect.

Los Feliz Fray Jeans £120 / Valeska Velvet Embroidered Bomber Jacket  £160

I am a jeans lover - I have a lot and wear them often and I am always on the look out for a pair that are interestingly cut or have unusual details. These cropped and frayed ones are cool - I like the colour and fraying around the waist and along the bottom - the fit and quality is good too.

This long length striped cape top is a wardrobe staple - it would look great with leggings or leather trousers and it is suitable as (non)maternity wear too.

Another great staple is this matte leather biker jacket which is a great fit (something that is crucial with a biker jacket) - I love the long arms and zips.

Star trainers are having a moment and these are good ones, they are also available in silver with blue and red stars on - which are very cool.

Leather Biker Jacket £250 / Uhla Cape Top £49

A smock dress is a style of dress that I usually associate with summer but this velvet one proves that that is not the case. It is really easy to wear, so soft and flattering - I'm wearing it with my star trainers but it would also look great with ankle boots. A perfect winter dress for day or evening.

LOVED & FOUND AT JOHN LEWIS

John Lewis's loved&found section is a collection of fashion, beauty products, accessories and lifestyle brands  curated around a theme and title. Collections include Dressing Up BoxBalearic Beach Club and World Beach.

loved&found is a great way to discover new products and brands that you might not have thought to shop. When a website is as large as John Lewis's it can be hard to know where to begin, so a good place is an already curated edit of interesting brands.

I have found so many things in loved&found that I like. 

Star Mela £110 / Soludus £59

I  love a summer smock dress - so comfortable, flattering, practical, can be worn if you are pregnant and will last a lifetime of summers. I also love shoes with pineapples on, neither of which i would have thought to shop for at John Lewis. My bag is by Star Mela who I have been a fan of for ages, this is a perfect all round summer bag for work, beach, nappies etc.

Star Mela £70

From the Dress Up Box collection I love this black and white spotted dress, I might wear it for wedding I have coming up and it would become a really useful dress to have in your wardrobe - It could be worn with any colour, with or without a jacket, with bright coloured shoes/ sandals flat or heeled, it could also be worn casually or to work, you could wear a t-shirt underneath it or a jumper over it.

Another thing that caught my eye was this silver jacket, the good thing about metallic coloured things is that they go with everything (metallic is a neutral in my world) and can be worn anywhere. I would wear this dressed down with jeans or dressed up to a smart event or party.

Baum und Pferdgarten Adia Strap Dress £289 / Darling London Dulcie Coat £109

Another couple of brands i have discovered via loved&found are contemporary, fair trade jewellry brand Mirabelle and Scandi inspired British brand Waven (pronounced ‘who-vuhn’).

 Mirabelle Palm Tree Pendant Chain Necklace £57 / Waven Caaren Loose Jumpsuit £70

I love leopard print everything and I can see that this leopard print jumper is probably going to become one of my staples, (as well as metallics) I believe a leopard print to be a neutral too.
