When the lovely people over at Very sent me an email about their latest collections, I couldn’t wait to blog about them. Not only are there ranges by two of my favourite female celebrities, Fearne Cotton and Willoughby, but now Very has teamed up with the gorgeous Diana Vickers! Love her or loathe her, I urge you to check out her range if you love anything vintage or sixties inspired. I’ll go into more depth about the collections in a mo, but first let me show you a piece that I was lucky enough to be sent. This beautiful dress is from the Fearne Cotton A/W collection. At first glance, many would brand this as being too bright, or too garish, but after looking at it properly you will see a stunning summery yellow drop back dress, complete with a seaside inspired seagull print. The fit is perfect on me, and the quality is amazing, much better than I had expected!

How awful does it feel to be pulling out your winter clothes? I felt like such a traitor wearing tights in July! I had planned wearing this bare legged with my trusty Primark lace up wedges for a summery look, but since summer has disappeared in the UK, I doubt I’ll be able to do that until holiday now! I was quite surprised at how versatile this dress is. Being such a bright colour I thought it would be difficult to style, but I’ve tried it with everything from sandals and boots to cardigans and blazers and it seems to suit most things I pair it with.
Here’s what Very say about the new A/W collections by the three ladies, and my opinions on each range.
They say – “Bold vintage inspired print dresses are the order of the day from Fearne this season with tartan check playing a strong role. The cape is the key shape for that statement item with long sleeve dresses a must have for a night on the town.”
I say – A true reflection of Fearne’s style. A little bit vintage, a little bit rocker, a little bit indie. An amazing mix of vintage prints and quirky shapes. I can imagine every single piece being worn by her in her day to day life.
They say – “Longer lengths and simple lines give this collection the air of sophistication delivered so naturally by Holly. Capped sleeves and nipped in waists in strong colours give the perfect silhouette for that day to evening look.“
I say – Holly down to a ‘T’. Oozing glamour in a retro fashion. Pillar box reds, and simple monochromes. Channels Holly’s yummy mummy style perfectly with figure hugging dresses with a forties feel.
They say – “In keeping with her signature style, Diana brings a collection of vintage inspired pieces including 60’s inspired shift dresses, 50’s hem lines and oversized straight cut coats. Key pieces lend themselves to being dressed up or down for the perfect transition outfit from day to night.“
I say – Diana has to be one of my favourite celebrities when it comes to style. I love her personal style and how she makes something vintage look up to date. These pieces are so suited to her, with over sized coats and little dresses, all with her signature vintage feel.
As you can see, all three collections are lovely, but Fearne’s is hands down my favourite. Be sure to check them out in full on the Very site.
