10 things worth checking out from… Matches Fashion

18th December, 2019

Is there any better activity than a night with a glass of wine in hand, scrolling through a fashion site with beautiful things aplenty? Matches Fashion is one such site, with a healthy roster of designer brands and so many great pieces to fall in love with.

Whether you’re after an outfit for a Christmas gathering or something to ring in the New Year or even a ‘just because’ present to yourself you’ll definitely want to settle in for a session perusing everything on offer. I recently did and these are the things that I think are definitely worth adding to cart.

Whitefield Rippled-plissé One-shoulder Top, Roland Mouret

Bookmark this top for an event. It’s the perfect combination of elevated details (that fold!), a sophisticated peplum and an on trend one shoulder neckline. You can also easily pair it with pants or a skirt and have yourself a sophisticated look that’s effortless.

Double-breasted Striped Wool Jacket, Hillier Bartley

A double breasted jacket is a forever wardrobe addition, and in white it’s versatile but just a little bit different to the failsafe black blazer. This is perfect for popping on over a summer look and instantly looking polished.

High-rise Textured Metallic Mini Skirt, Dolce & Gabbana

If you’re looking for a piece that’s guaranteed to be the focal point to a look this is it. Ultra feminine and luxe, this is the kind of outfit element that will take your look from good to outstanding.

Maria One-shoulder Crepe Swimsuit, Haight

I’m a huge fan of understated, classic swimsuits and I don’t think you can get much better than a simple one shoulder silhouette. You could wear this for a day at the beach and pop on pair of dressy shorts or a statement skirt and wear it straight to drinks.

Cotton-blend Sangallo-lace Maxi Dress, Luisa Beccaria

A lightweight, airy maxi dress is ideal for summer and this one just evokes the spirit of the season. Pair it with your fave summer sandals and you’ve got effortless dressing nailed.

Embroidered Pleated-sleeve Crepe Blouse, Loewe

I love the classic silhouette of this blouse but the interesting features — from the pleated sheer sleeves to the cuffs give it a knockout effect that will transform even the most sedate of pieces.

Galativi 85 Mesh-panelled Suede Pumps, Christian Louboutin

A great pair of pumps is always a wardrobe necessity but this style gives it a modern touch. The mesh panels inject a little edge into the look while maintaining the beautiful versatility that defines black heels.

BB-logo Leather Belt, Balenciaga

Logo belts are still huge right now. White is easily able to be worked back with many a look but the double BB feature adds a bold touch.

Devotion Floral-jacquard Cross-body Bag, Dolce & Gabbana

When it comes to mini bags this one has a distinctly regal vibe that allows it to stand out from its diminutive counterparts. Wear it with a chain as a crossbody bag or tuck it in to turn it into a clutch. Win-win!

GG lion Door-knocker Earrings, Gucci

It’s always fun to embrace a statement earring and this pair are striking enough to enhance any look but also simple enough to give it some versatility.

The gift hub that’s making Christmas shopping easier for fashion fans

7th December, 2016


The countdown is on to Christmas and I’m well and truly in shopping mode. I am quite a frequent visitor to Matches Fashion throughout the year and have definitely made a purchase or two so I was excited to discover their Gift Studio. I’m all about anything that makes life easier during this busy time of year and this certainly makes gift buying a cinch! The edit on the Matches site is always top notch, and they always stock my favourite designers so I know I’m guaranteed to find something perfect, but to make it easier to locate the ideal present, the dedicated Christmas hub narrows down present ideas into different categories, price range and style so it serves up just the right list of suggestions. It really takes the stress out of shopping. Plus if you’re a little short on time to gift wrap you’ll be glad to hear that every package comes in their signature marbled packaging so you don’t have to worry about wrapping. The packaging is so beautiful so it’s guaranteed to impress and their delivery times are super quick so if you’ve left things to the last minute, don’t worry, it’s not too late!

Here are some standout gifts that I’m sure will put a smile on someone’s face (I know I’ve bookmarked them for myself)…

Statement shoes

Whether it’s Aquazurra’s iconic Wild Thing sandals or Valentino’s beautiful Rockstud leather mules Matches’ shoe selection will satisfy any shoe addict. Flats don’t need to be boring these day either so I ordered a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood backless loafers.  These shoes are just the right style to ensure whoever receives them will get plenty of use out of them whilst still making a head-turning statement.

Bold jewellery

One huge trend at the moment is statement jewellery. The bolder the better. Whether it’s a pair of Gucci pearl-effect earrings or a gorgeous gold cuff any woman would be pleased to see something so special under the tree on Christmas morning.

Embellished bag

Gucci have really nailed it this season, especially when it comes to bags. The Dionysus embellished bag is the stuff designer dreams are made of. It’s gorgeously artistic and completely striking and is the type of wardrobe addition that will certainly impress.


I’ve mentioned my love of sunglasses previously and I think they make a great gift. Whatever the style, beautiful frames are the perfect way to update an outfit and are a summer staple.


Why not treat yourself to beautiful lingerie? It’s the ultimate indulgence but oh-so right when it’s as pretty as this.


Whether it’s a Dolce & Gabbana iPhone case or a hot pink Givenchy card holder a mini designer hit is the kind of gift that is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone receiving it.
