Trends

  • How to buy jeans

    Because let’s face it, it’s always a nightmare, right? Wrong! Thanks to this brilliant styling service at John Lewis, Westgate. Tricky customer Kerry Potter gives it a whirl – here’s how she got on.

  • 5 of the best… trench coats

    It's a style classic for a reason - the trench is probably the most chic, useful piece you can buy (banish all thoughts of Inspector Clouseau). Here are our new season favourites.

  • French slogan jumpers

    5 of the best… French slogan jumpers

    Bonjour, sexy new knitwear! These chic slogan jumpers are guaranteed to add a little je ne sais quoi to any ensemble - we adore.

  • Have pet, will travel?

    Have pet, will travel? Here's how to transport Fido or Whiskers in style. No, those passers-by aren't laughing at you, you must've imagined it.

  • 4 new season trends to try (and one to avoid)

    The high street is awash with new spring/summer goodies. Overwhelmed? Here's our pick of the new trends worth exploring - and how to wear them.

  • Bottle bags

    Water bottles are such a faff to carry around, aren't they? But Chanel are on hand with this chic solution. Can you guess how much it costs though?

  • 3 new online bridal collections

    Here comes the bride... and she's got next-day delivery! First time online collections from the likes of Matches, Kitri and even a recently revitalised Warehouse that will be right up your aisle.

  • Dotty about polka dots

    We're going dotty over the return of an old favourite print - welcome back, polka dot!

  • J’adore/ J’abhor

    Leopard-print has come a LONG way from Bet Lynch's barmaid wardrobe. It's flipping everywhere now. But is it still chic? Cue an almighty rumble in the jungle with two Muddy staffers with very different views.

  • Ready for a fashion reboot?

    If you're flat-lining when it comes to fashion, help is at hand. Muddy meets the high street personal stylists.

  • We came, we saw…

    The Muddy Stilettos x Bicester Village shopping and styling spectacular was the hottest ticket in town. Here's what went down on the day. (Spoiler: vast amounts of retail therapy and macarons).

  • Gotta Have It

    You'd be barking mad to miss H&M's new knitwear line allowing you to outfit twin with your doggy. Woof!

  • Word up

    Too busy to say it yourself? Lacking the vocab to express your feelings after a long day battling spreadsheets or sprogs? Let a classic slogan T do it for you.

  • Gotta Have It

    A chic, sexy, stylish... suitcase? Yep, really. Meet the cult luggage brand that's flying high this summer. Check it out before you check it in.

  • Over the Rainbow

    All things bright and beautiful? When it comes to the new jewellery trend for rainbow-coloured gemstones, you betcha.

  • J’adore/ J’abhor

    So, what's the hot topic currently creating emotional fracking by the office water cooler? This week - velcro sandals!

  • J’adore/ J’abhor

    In our new Muddy regular, we look at both sides of a hot topic that's currently dividing office opinion. This week: the return of bucket hats.

    Ready for an adventure? Us too! At Muddy we’ve committed to new experiences this summer (both cultural and clothes related, natch). Read on for inspo - and win a sizzling £400 hush wardrobe while you’re at it!

  • Ready to get crafty?

    Forget its naff '70s connotations, macramé is a big news in interiors and fashion this summer.

  • Say my name

    Fashion gets personal with the trend for emblazoning your name across your T shirt, handbag or phone case. Think school uniform name tags but cooler!
