The sun is shining (finally!) and here at F&F HQ we’re feeling oh-so summery. Whilst this is partly due to the long awaited weather change, it may also have something to do with the fact that we’ve been playing our new TV ad, over and over again, to really get us thinking about our holidays and the hot British summer that we hope is coming our way this year.
The brand new advert, which launches tomorrow night during Alan Carr’s Chattyman on Channel 4, shows some of the key pieces for our latest summer range.
With a mix of beautifully bright colours and rays of sunshine captured within the advert, it’s no wonder it’s getting us in the mood for sun, sea and sand!
Take a look for yourself and view a sneak peek of the new summer ad here and shop the range now to get ready to embrace your summer style!
Things are heating up at F&F HQ and we’re well and truly in summer mode now so I’ve picked out my favourite pieces from our summer collection to give you a little taster of more to come…
This look is casual and comfortable; ideal for weekends or on holiday. Mixing bold colours with bright prints will keep your day outfits on trend.
F&F Turn-Up Shorts, £6. Truffle Gladiator Sandals, £15. F&F Burnout Aztec Print Vest, £8. F&F Aztec Four Ring Shopper, £12.50
The right maxi dress can take you from day to night and this maxi is easily dressed up with wedged sandals which are really comfortable too.
F&F Slingback Raffia Wedge Sandals, £15. F&F Double Pocket Twist Lock Cross Body Bag, £12.50. F&F Double Layer Maxi Dress, £15
I love the ruching at the side of these bikini briefs and the vibrant tropical print is perfect for holidays. Just add metallic sandals to keep your look elegant and sophisticated.

Happy Wednesday readers! After the snow which came out of nowhere early this week, here at F&F HQ we’re trying to distract ourselves with thoughts of what we will wear once the summer sun rolls round… And saying hello to this Tribal Print Maxi Dress (£20) from our True collection, which comes in sizes 16 through 28. With a clean, streamlined design which is perfectly in-line with the current catwalk minimalist trends, this pull-on jersey dress has a monochrome tribal print which will go with pretty much everything.
I’m seeing this dress with a cardi or jacket and heeled sandals for summer in the city, or with flipflops and bold beads on the beach.
What are you dreaming of this Wednesday?
Ahh spring, we’ve missed you!
I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s welcomed the slightly warmer weather we’ve enjoyed over the last week or so. However, despite a colleague declaring on Friday that it was ‘weather for sandals!!’, I don’t think we’re quite at that stage yet. But fingers crossed. With that in mind, today’s Wednesday Want is the perfect pair of transitional shoes – bright and colourful with a nod to spring in their floral trim, but still with covered toes and in a versatile denim finish which won’t look totally out of place if the skies grey over in the afternoon.
What’s your solution to the transitional footwear dilemma? Do you have a Wednesday Want? What’s on your wishlist for spring? As always, we love to hear your comments here, on twitter and on facebook.
Today’s Wednesday Want is an easy to wear shift dress which is your shortcut to working the monochrome trend. Black and white stripes were seen everywhere during London Fashion Week, from the catwalks to the front row to street style. And ladies, believe me, black and white stripes are the answer to pretty much every ‘what to wear?’ dilemma. This nautical dress has just enough sailor styling to have you looking polished rather than Popeye, and in a flattering A-line shift shape, you can wear it with tights and a blazer now and with bare legs and heeled sandals in summer. Great for workwear and dressy looks, you could style it down a la Kate Moss with gladiator sandals and a grunge-y denim or leather jacket.F&F Limited Edition Striped Shift Dress: £25
From our Limited Edition collection, you’ll wear this dress over and over, and get a compliment every time you do.
Have you got a Wednesday Want this week? How would you style this monochrome nautical number? Let us know in the comments!
You may have heard about a little event called London Fashion Week going ahead this week but did you know about The Official British Plus Size Weekend? The first ever event of its kind in London is being held on 15th and 16th February to celebrate your curves and the fabulous fashion for real women.
So, for this week’s Wednesday Wants, we thought it was only fitting to pick a piece from our very own Plus Size collection, F&F True. The F&F True Dip Hem Animal Dress has an amazing abstract animal print and is finished in soft and floaty chiffon making it a glam dress with a touch of attitude. The elasticated drawstring waistline nips you in at the waist while the dipped hem completes the fashionable look that’s a guaranteed stunner with heels and a biker jacket.
Let us know what you think of our F&F True collection and how you’d wear our F&F True Dip Hem Animal Dress in the comment bow below!
Also, be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and right here on the blog for more news about British Plus Size Fashion Weekend.
Recently, I’ve been taking inspiration from around the office, and been keeping an eye out for ways to spice up a plain outfit or how to subtly introduce new trends into my daily outfit selection.
Some of the top tips from ‘the floor’ include layering, accessorising, bringing in more colour to your outfits and quite importantly, be comfortable!
I’ve taken these ideas and handpicked some of my favourite items from our new collection to show you how I’ll be making the transition into spring (whilst hopefully feeling as though my wardrobe has been well and truly refreshed with some up to date looks).
Enjoy and hopefully you’ll feel inspired too…
F&F Signature Oversized Satin Shirt £25, F&F Diamond Jumper £22, F&F Teardrop Necklace £5, F&F Mini Buckle Satchel £10, F&F Glitter Western Boot £22, F&F Skull Print Tee £10, F&F Mock Layer Jumper £14
Here at F&F Towers we spend a lot of time looking at what’s on the catwalks to make sure our range is bang up to date, and today I’m really excited to share a few looks with you from our new collection, 60s GRAPHIC. From Victoria Beckham to Marc Jacobs, this season is all about retro A-line shapes, crisp black and white body-con and splashes of red. Taking their cues from fashion icon Twiggy and Carnaby Street in its heyday, our designers have interpreted the swinging 60s vibe into flattering, comfortable and easy to wear pieces which pack a serious style punch.
Some of my favs from this range are below and include the Limited Edition Tipped Dress (1) and Mini Skirt (3), both £35, and the flattering cropped jacket (4) which comes in black or red, teamed with the zip detailed trousers. (6) An easy and economical way to get a touch of the trend is to work some platform shoes (5), I love these subtle ones from Ella, or give a plain top a retro twist with a scarf.(2)
Or if you’re looking to make a 60s statement without any fuss, these dresses are the perfect shortcut. We’ve taken 60s shapes and patterns and brought them bang up-to-date by lowering hems and streamlining designs so that the result is gorgeously on trend yet works on all figures. I’m already coveting the daisy dress (1) and the red mini dress (3) to team with a denim jacket, tan wedge heels and a bunch of bangles for summer parties. Check out the two monochrome lovelies below too – the black and white dresses shown at (2) and (4) will be available exclusively online soon and I’ll be sure to pop back and tell you when they’re live.
Speaking of the live fashion news, why not follow us on Twitter or join us on Facebook for all the latest from the team? We’d also love to hear what you think in the comments section.
So have you got a 60s swing in your step? How would you wear this colourful retro look?
Love, Gemma x
