When it comes to fashion, we are all inspired by what we see; whether it be a well-dressed celebrity, a blow-your-mind catwalk presentation or even a super stylish every-day passerby.
As fashion editors, we’re moved by all of the above, and then some. We’re exposed to under-the-radar labels; we get a first-hand look at collections months before they hit stores; we’re tapped into brands with chic-yet-cheap offerings and we shop – a lot.
To share our knowledge, FEMAIL brings you Style Swoon, a weekly series of the latest, greatest and on the verge. We hope this Friday series will serve as a buying guide and point of inspiration for the clotheshorses and fashion fanatics alike.

Stylish new release
Halogen X Atlantic-Pacific Faux Fur Coat, $249; nordstrom.com. Full suit on nordstrom.com
Atlantic-Pacific blogger Blair Eadie released a stylish collection of separates with Halogen for Nordstrom this week.
‘I wanted to create a collection that felt very cohesive and one that you could really mix and match in endless – and unexpected – ways,’ Blair told FEMAIL.
A self-proclaimed magpie, Blair never sticks to simple, streamlined pieces. ‘For me, getting dressed is the first opportunity of the day to be creative and transform my mood. I am a maximalist – so more is more. The more color, print, pattern, and layers, the better!
‘We wanted each individual piece to feel special and feminine, yet wearable and comfortable. There is so much versatility and differentiation throughout the collection, from a menswear inspired suit to a tulle skirt with matching bow blouse.’
Select styles go up to size 24 and prices range from $10 (ankle socks) to $249 (coat).
