So Lindex x By Malina what do we need to know? Its the newest drop on the High Street and we are obsessed. Their first collaboration with the Swedish fashion brand By Malina. With its bright colours and gorgeous unique prints, think seashells and palm trees. Modelled by three influencers, one peak at the campaign images of Nina Sandbech from Norway, AJ Odudu from the UK or Margaux Dietz from Sweden make us want to be on holiday, like NOW, wearing it all head to toe right?

Nina Sandbech in Lindex x By Malina

Founder of By Malina, Malin Ek Andren told us ‘The collections was inspired by the heat of the Mediterranean, with thin, lightweight fabrics designed for the effortless woman. Over the years, Ive often felt that packing for vacation is a struggle and I wanted to change that with this selection of garments. They’re simply the perfect items to take on a Summer getaway!’’ We couldn’t agree more! There is something about packing for a trip that brings team Marie Claire out in a rash so we are all over anything that delivers on the fashion front. Not just for holidays, the collection is full of pieces you can wear at home too, just add a slouchy knit over the tiered maxi dress and Stan Smiths for a easy weekend look.

Our favourite pieces would have to be, anything in the broderie anglaise, the high waisted bikini, with its flattering tie detail and the printed tiered maxi dress which is the perfect piece in your suitcase to accommodate all those long holiday lunches.

The Harry Potter x Vans collection is here and it is magical

The Harry Potter x Vans collection is here and it is magical


Accio immediately, please

harry potter vans

The Harry Potter films might have wrapped eight years ago (yes, it really has been that long), but our obsession with the magical world is stronger than ever. Daniel Radcliffe recently spoke about the movies getting a reboot in the not so distant future, and we’re forever being spoilt with all things HP – from magical pop-up bars to beautiful and delicate themed jewellery.

So many Potterheads were thrilled to find out that something was on its way to fill that Harry Potter footwear-shaped void in our lives.

Vans teased a magical collaboration back in April, and we finally have the official pictures of the shoes. A word of warning: you’ll love and want them all.

Each Hogwarts house has been transformed into footwear form. The Gryffindor-inspired Sk8-Hi has red and gold stripes against black suede with an embroidered lion crest on the side.

Slytherin is a green and black Era trainer with a snake of the tongue, while Ravenclaw is an Authentic checkerboard in blue and white.

Finally, Hufflepuff is a sensible black Classic Slip-On in with the yellow crest stitched onto the front.

‘Whether goofy foot or regular stance, Gryffindor or Slytherin, the Vans x Harry Potter footwear and apparel collection will appeal to all enthusiasts of Vans and the Wizarding World,’ the brand has said in a statement.

And rumour has it there will be even more styles as part of the collection but there’s no official launch date just yet – so we’ll keep you posted as soon as we get any more info.

This is how our fashion editors navigate pregnancy style

This is how our fashion editors navigate pregnancy style


Whilst Kate Middleton’s and Meghan Markle’s maternity style were on point, it’s not always that easy to pull off IRL, especially if you don’t want to spend a fortune on a new wardrobe.

Which is why I asked all of Marie Claire’s editors to share their best pregnancy style tips.

Lucia Debieux, fashion editor, found the perfect jeans and maternity dress

“I’m currently going through maternity style so I am all about this! Citizens of Humanity and Paige denim are the best maternity jeans around (I have these). Don’t get from the regular collection and size up, invest in the maternity styles. Yes they are expensive but you already feel like your body is changing so much and you don’t feel like your normal stylish self so to have something like a pair of jeans that you know will with everything in your wardrobe is a win win. Plus you can wear them after the baby when you body is settling into its new shape.

‘Ganni and their smock style has been a lifesaver for me, I went up a size to make room for pregnancy boobs which are a thing FYI! But essentially the empire line smock shape that Ganni does so well is perfect for maternity. I bought this in black but have also seen it in a multi coloured leopard which would be perfect for a wedding I have coming up when I will be full term.’

‘Don’t think that you can’t still wear the trends, silk slip skirts and slip dresses are perfect with a growing bump. With skirts, just look for a elasticated waist that will work with a bump, I have this that I wear with a oversized sweater or a white shirt tied up. Slip dresses are perfect and I have a wardrobe full from last summer so it’s a dream. With silk being naturally stretchy it’s a must have in your maternity wardrobe and beyond.’

‘Lastly don’t forget your lingerie drawer, I’m all about a big pant and pregnancy is no different. Gap and Hanky Panky do a great sexy stretch lace option, not a whiff of a granny pant to be seen. When it comes to bras, it’s not advised to wear underwired so seek out triangle bras. I LOVE Rossell England, they are so comfortable and super stylish.’

Jess Wood, fashion features director, swears by tube skirts

‘My favourite tricks were to go up a size in non-maternity clothes – and stretchy tube skirts! I bought lots of loose printed boho dresses from River Island and some stretchy knitted skirts from Topshop main collections and wore both to death. When I got to the third trimester and the bump was very much out there, waistband extenders (in packets of three different colours, from Amazon) were my best friend. I’d use them on all my skirts and some of my jeans and got away with not splashing out on much maternity gear.’

Tanya Philipson, executive fashion director, recommends buying as little as possible

‘Buy nothing until it’s impossible and then but something that you can wear over again – staple pieces that will grow with you. I only needed to buy a few maternity basics that I combined with my usual wardrobe. I bought maternity jeans, leggings, tops, bras, and easy dresses.

Go back into your wardrobe and see what you can actually wear with your bump, you will be surprised how many treasures you have. Investing in a great pair of denim jeans is a must as you won’t get away with wearing your normal ones. J Brand I think have the best selection. THE OUTNET was great for any occasion pieces you may need to feel you are wearing something special but without the price tag as you may never wear it again.’

Katie Thomas, digital beauty editor, is buying normal clothes one size up

‘I’m four months pregnant, so it’s still really early days for me so I haven’t actually bought any maternity clothes yet. However, my plan is to shop exactly as I do now, but buy bigger sizes and find designs that will suit my new body shape better. For example, I love a floaty dresses and big tunic dresses so I’ll stick to that style, but go up a size if necessary. I really don’t want to spend lots of money on clothes that I perhaps wouldn’t wear again. However, I’ve been told maternity jeans and trousers are a must, so I’ll definitely be adding a few of those to my online shopping basket.’

Met Gala 2019: The campest outfits on the red carpet

Met Gala 2019: The campest outfits on the red carpet


met gala 2019

It was always going to be tricky to outdo the Met Gala 2018 red carpet, thanks to its religious theme which led Rihanna to dress like the actual Pope.

However it’s safe to say the celebs have outdone themselves again, taking the Camp: Notes on Fashion and running with it.

Met Gala Camp theme

First off, a bit of context. Like previous years, the theme was an extension of the Met’s exhibition, curated by Andrew Bolton and Wendy Yu, around Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay Notes on “Camp” which amongst other things describes it as a love of exaggeration. Gucci was the official sponsor, so the fact there would be extravagant and fabulous outfits was a given.

Met Gala 2019 best dressed

Now at this point it’s safe to say Rihanna is the Queen of the Met Gala red carpet, and this year she’s cemented her title, opting for another flashy dress. And while we didn’t think it possible for Lady Gaga to beat that Golden Globes dress, we were sorely mistaken.

Met Gala 2019 Lady Gaga

She pulled off not one, not two but three Brandon Maxwell looks on the red carpet. All within five minutes of arriving on the pink carpet. She arrived in a hot pink ballgown, which she took off to reveal a slightly smaller black ballgown which she took off to reveal a pink column dress, all whilst holding a giant Barbie-style phone. What a performance.

Meghan Markle’s travel case has had a MAJOR update and it’s the ultimate holiday essential

Meghan Markle’s travel case has had a MAJOR update and it’s the ultimate holiday essential


Words by Maisie Bovingdon 

Meghan Markle never fails to have fans swooning over her style, whether it’s her maternity wear, her Aquazzura heels, Veja trainers, or sleek tailored pieces.

But now there is a new must-have we NEED this summer, because who doesn’t want to look EXACTLY like the Duchess?

Prior to becoming a royal the former Suits actress was never pictured without her STOW leather zip tech case in hand – you simply couldn’t miss it being bright orange.

Meghan – who is expecting her first baby with husband Prince Harry and is due to give birth any day now – previously revealed the nifty travel wallet was her ultimate ‘travel essential’, and she gushed about the piece on her blog The Tig, which has since been deleted.

Now, the London-based brand has released a new miniature version, and we need it for our next vacay.

The Mini First Class Tech Set has nifty compartments for everything you need; your phone, as well as a power bank (a must for when you’re on the go), a passport section, a zip for spare change, a pocket for cards, and a folder for boarding passes, or travel money.

A matching pouch is also included to hold any extra necessities, or jewellery. STOW really have thought of everything!

The miniature pouch can be popped into a bag or simply held when on the go, and it’s 5cm shorter in height than the original tech case.

The mini tech set comes in four colours, black, tan, green and orange – like Meghan – although personalisation in the form of monogramming or painting is also available for an extra fee.

The essential is available to buy for £335 from STOW, but those who want the mum-to-be’s EXACT essential can splash out £465.

Get us on that next flight!

This iconic Topshop dress is BACK in a new colour and it’s giving us all the summer feels


*Adds to basket*

Words by Maisie Bovingdon

Remember the polka dot pinafore dress Topshop released last year, which sent the entire nation into a frenzy? Let us jog your memory; it was released in white with black polka dots and sold out immediately, before it was released in black with white polka dots, a floral print and animal pattern.

Well, it’s FINALLY made a comeback.

The high street brand has now launched two new designs of the Lace Pinafore Dress, and we have no doubts it will be a huge sell out this year.

winter wedding guest dresses

Topshop 80s Floral Pinafore Dress, £55

The must-have wardrobe staple this summer comes in two colours, black and white, and is the exact same style as last year’s version but with the added detail of lace around the neckline, back of the dress, as well as a panel down the front of the dress.

The mid-length dress has a v-lunge neckline, as well as cut out back detail and thigh high split.

However, eagle-eyed shoppers will notice a slight difference in the new creation in comparison to last year’s version.

The polka dot dress had ruffle detail down the front, which the new release has not included.

Some will also notice the lace version has belt detail around the waist to accentuate your frame, and this was not a feature the original had.

One more thing, the Lace Pinafore dress comes in sizes 4 to 18, and costs £69, but the Mix Spotted Midi Dress retailed for £20 less.

In the words of Ariana Grande (kinda), we see it, we like it, we want it, we’re gong to get it.

Mickey and Minnie love the points of regiment.
We love Mickey and Mini.
That is why we love the regimental points.

We do not know how closely you follow the trends, but last year all the points of the regiment broke out. The points found the revival they deserved, not the "old-fashioned" 21st century. From running pieces and ruffled tops to formal dresses and skirts, now they are perceived differently. Put your points in the wardrobe and show you how.

11 Ways to Wear Polar Points

    Home or Ball around the Corner? I guess the man in you can not start taking the typical girl's outfit. Take a dress from a friend or rent her, throw a leather jacket and finish it with boots just the way you like it.

    I do not exaggerate when I say there is a lot you can do with your breasts. While "the boy" is a reflection of an innate person, we can all play with that idea either by following the norms of a real boy or changing them to suit our own personality. Are you a boy?

    How to pick the best lingerie for your wedding dress

    How to pick the best lingerie for your wedding dress


    It’ll be a life changer

    bridal lingerie

    You’ve said yes, been fitted for the wedding dress of your dreams and booked the band… but what about lingerie? Picking the perfect underpinnings to set off your gown can seem like a daunting task.

    Lingerie plays a huge part in your wedding, as it determines how your dress will both look and feel. Your underwear should work with your dress to give you all the support you need, accentuating your assets, making you look sleek and sensational from morning and noon to night.

    But worry not, we got the expert at Ultimo to give us the lowdown on how to help pick out the best bridal lingerie for your big day…

    The best underwear for a backless wedding dress

    If you have chosen your dress already, consider its style and shape – is it structured with built-in support, bones, or a corset? Or is it silky and slinky? A slinky dress can call for a bit more thought in terms of lingerie. Look out for a low back strapless bra, and pair it with our amazing high waist knickers to give you a super sleek silhouette and avoid unsightly lumps and bumps. It’s advisable to avoid heavily embellished undergarments as these can show through the fabric, detracting from your look.

    The best underwear for a strapless wedding dress

    A strapless wedding dress will require a strapless bra, so try Ultimo’s Multiway Strapless bra. With its ‘wear five ways’ strap solutions, it will accommodate a plethora of styles from halter neck to asymmetric or removed completely.

    The best underwear for a fitted dress

    No bride wants a visible panty line on her big day. That kind of activity is highly impractical, so make time to find the perfect pair of pants. If your dress is figure hugging, the only option is seamless briefs to banish VPL – it will make your derriere look picture perfect.

    Meghan Markle’s sandals are back in stock – and we want them in every colour

    Meghan Markle’s sandals are back in stock – and we want them in every colour


    pregnancy skincare

    Words by Maisie Bovingdon

    Meghan Markle never fails to have fans swooning over her outfits whenever she steps out, from her shoes, Missoma accessories and now her maternity wardrobe.

    During the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal tour to Australia last year, which came shortly after the couple announced they were expecting their first baby together who is tipped to arrive any day now, Meghan showed off an incredible wardrobe AND shoedrobe.

    Meghan also donned the sandals when she returned back to the UK and attended the Audi Polo Challenge in June, and even before she was a royal as she posted a picture of her wearing them on her now deleted Instagram account.

    The former Suits actress had everyone across the globe lusting after her  Sarah Flint Grear sandals, so much so they completely sold out.

    Now months later Meghan’s must haves are FINALLY back in stock – can we get a hip hip hooray?

    The flat summer staple feature fold over construction on the body of the shoe, which is made from Italian Vacchetta calf leather, cotton straps to lace around the ankle or further up the calf, as well as a leather sole.

    The Grear style comes in an array of colours, including metallic, black and white, but if you truly want to copy Meghan’s wardrobe opt for the tan pair, called Saddle, which will set you back only £189.39.

    Meghan paired her Grear sandals with a blue striped summer dress, but they are an essential item that will complement any outfit, which is why we want one in every colour!
