Knitwear, it’s not just for Christmas

Let’s just take a moment to chat about jumpers.  They are stylish but practical, keeping us warm and often covering up all the bits that are sometimes best left hidden. We all have our favourites, some favourites even have holes in but we refuse to recycle them because they’ve spent many months wrapped round us like a security blanket. But the good news is that when living in Britain a jumper is a wardrobe staple all year round. So if you’re mourning the loss of your big chunky winter knits... Read More

In fact Drapers (our industry bible) has recently reported that for the first time ever trainers outsold heels this summer. The cat walks have seen trainers being worn with exclusive dresses for some time now (albeit very expensive designer trainers of course!) so it’s only natural that we’re seeing the effect in store. Unisa and Gabor have embraced this with what we’d class as ‘lifestyle’ trainers: Suede is a very popular look... Read More

Women’s Capes and Ponchos

Capes and Ponchos are one of the key women’s trends for Autumn/Winter 2016 and here at O&C we have one to suit every occasion and budget.  And yes of course we’ve had the discussion about when is a cape a cape and not a poncho (don’t even mention cloaks!). Some say that a poncho is cut from a rectangular piece of wool whilst a cape is cut from a circle.  But did we care what shape it was when Clint Eastwood wore his poncho? No, we did not.  So, the...
