Meet @Dapper67

This week we want to introduce you to one of the coolest guys we’ve ever met, Andrew Rushworth…

@dapper67 in Joe Browns' 'Suits You' 3 piece

After meeting Andy at our store launch in Sheffield last October we just knew we needed to know more about him.

We met up a couple of weeks back for a coffee and we weren’t disappointed.

@dapper67 in Joe Browns' 'Suits You' 3 piece

Here’s a little bit about the man himself:

“I spend my day to day travelling around schools in South Yorkshire delivering year group lessons on a variety of topics. Each lesson includes live music, multimedia and Q&A. It’s great spending time with young men and women and talking through the real issues of life and being a part of their preparation for adulthood. 

@dapper67 in Joe Browns' 'Suits You' 3 piece

I’m a published author of “Barking Dogs” if every postman stopped at the barking dogs, he would never get the mail delivered. We all have a gift to give to this planet, but so often the barking dogs in our lives, the mistakes, disappointments, failings and upbringing can stop us becoming and doing all that we were created for.

I love acting and am a member of the 53 Theatre Group in Sheffield, going to watch Sheffield UTD play and all things dapper… I need a bigger wardrobe! 

@dapper67 in Joe Browns' 'Suits You' 3 piece

Iv been married to Sharron for 27 years and we have three children.

Check out Andy’s Instagram here for all things dapper.

After a good catch, up learning about his early life in the USA, his role as a Pastor and all about the work he does for Shine Sheffield, we had a chat about his love for all things Dapper.

From Tweed Suits, Starched Collars and Peaky Hats we basically covered it all.

Being the absolute star he is, he even planned a shoot in which he was rocking our very own Suits You Blazer, Waistcoat and Trousers.

Not to mention one of our favourite jackets from last season the Dressed To Impress Overcoat.

Check out the awesome locations used, such as The Lost Boys Tattoo Studio in Rotherham owned by award-winning artist Johny Matthews none the less, and the classic look of the Dore & Totley Railway Station giving our suit and Andy’s debonair look a real vintage and traditional British style.

Mothers Day ideas: Alternative ways to treat your mum

Struggling for Mother’s Day ideas? Want to do something a bit different from last year that your mum will really remember?

Or are you the mum and want to leave this page open on your browser for one of your little darlings to find and think they’ve come up with a great Mother’s Day idea all by themselves? (just remember to scroll down past this sentence)…


For the Boho Mum

Boho Reversible Cotton Bag £19.95
Simple Embroidered Dress £34.95 
Cool and Casual Leather Sandals £39.95

Stay: Hire a VW camper van and go and explore some awesome countryside.

Do: Wrap mum up nice and warm and go for a long walk.

Eat: Take a picnic – or if a mate’s got one of those portable stoves, even better, let her sit back on a deck chair and you do the cooking.



For the Classy Mum

Lovely Linen Mix Dress £49.95
Alicia Occasion Bag £29.95
Alicia Lace Shoes £39.95


Stay: Find a cute little B’n’B just for the two of you bursting with English charm

Do: Book yourselves into a spa, but instead of the regular massage she’ll be expecting, why not try something different like cupping, a seaweed bath or chocolate facial?

Eat: Why not try an afternoon tea with a difference – like an afternoon GIN tea or one on a moving bus or boat? 



For the Funky Mum 

Utterly Unique Tunic £44.95 
Just Divine Suede Boots £69.95 
Beautiful Basic Leggings £9.95

Stay: Some mums might not fancy full-on camping, but glamping in a tree house – hello!

Do: Why not keep costs down and take your bikes for a bit of exercise and adventure.

Eat: If you and your mum enjoy cooking, why not do a cookery course together for some quality bonding time over good food.



For the Rocky Mum

Joe’s Leather jacket £169 
Joe’s Favourite Border Dress £34.95 
Creative embroidered Boots £49.95

Stay: If cash is a bit tight, why not kick everyone else out the house so you two can have some time together by yourselves? Maybe just run the duster round first so it looks like you’ve made an effort. A bit of Mr Sheen won’t break the bank.

Do: When was the last time you went to a gig with your mum? Have a rummage through her CD (or tape!) collection and see who she loves. Even if they’re not your thing – they might end up being really cool and she’ll love you for it!

Eat: Make a cake! Yeah, it’s not her birthday, but why not!


Whichever mum your mum is, these Mother’s Day ideas are sure to make her happy on her special day of the year.

Just how versatile is the Amazingly Versatile Dress?

If we’re going to call a dress ‘The Amazingly Versatile Dress‘ it seems only fair we prove it.

So let us hand you over to our amazing staff in our brand spanking new store in Meadowhall, Sheffield, who styled this stunning piece in all their own unique and stylish ways. Over to you guys… 


Teamed the dress with: Keep It Simple Coat £79.95 (In Black), Beautiful Leggings £9.95 (Black), and her own pumps.

“This look is great for casual day wear and going shopping with the girls, but can easily take you into the evening if you popped on a pair of heels. I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple and I love navy and black together.” 



Teamed the dress with: Flirty Fringed Knit £39.95 (In Burgundy), and her own boots, but this look would be perfect with the Embroidered Suede Boots £59.95. 

“This is a very casual style, good for relaxing around the home or to be snug yet fashionable when out and about. I really liked posing for this pic as it gave me a chance to read the Van Life book, only available in our Meadowhall Store!”

(We only asked our lovely shop staff to style the dress one way, but our Debbie couldn’t help herself…)

She then nabbed Carolines Favourite Jacket £64.95 – “Perfect look for the office, very smart and respectable!” 



Teamed the dress with: Supersoft Tights £6.95, Biker Chic Leather Jacket £169.95 (In Black), and Statement Long Boots £54.95 (In Black).

“I love this great biker chic look! You can really rock it up with these amazing pieces!” 



Teamed the dress with: Luxury 80 Denier Tights £8.95, Funky Floral Duffle Coat £79.95, and the Signature Ankle Boots £49.95. 

“I took inspiration from my friend beside me – I reckon I rock it better than her though! I feel really Christmassy in this getup – love it!” 

And we asked Grace to show us just how amazing the Amazingly Versatile Dress is all on its own. We think you’ll agree – beautiful. 

Thanks guys – good work! 













Fashionably foxy!

From tops to tights, like loads of you, we can’t get enough of fox prints this season!

There’s something about their cautious and cunning characters we can’t help but find intriguing.

Here are our top foxy favourites…

The Funky Fox Top (£29.95)  has a subtle fox print mixed with florals and is full of gorgeous autumnal colours. It looks great with a classic pair of Skinny Jeans or a skirt and tights combo, like the Mad Love Suedette Skirt.


How about adding some foxy style to your accessories? This unique Funky Foxy Shopper (£29.95) will certainly turn heads with this bold and cute print. It’s also the perfect size for all your stocking fillers.


Next up are these quirky Foxy Foxy Tights (£12.95). We love that the editor of Vanity Fair rocked a similar pair to these – a lady that clearly knows her own style.



And last but not least is our Foxy and Fun Knitted Scarf (£22.95) This gorgeous, hand-knitted scarf is full of fun and will keep you warm and cosy in style throughout winter. Complete the look with the matching gloves.


Still craving more? Check out more fox inspired tops, cardigans, gifts and accessories here.













Dressed for Christmas – the Joe Browns way

Christmas is the most awesome time of year and what better way to look and feel amazing than by wearing Joe Browns? We’ve put together some Christmas looks that will help you glide through the festive season in effortless style.

The Christmas Party

This Christmas party look will have you dancing all night! The luxurious Party All Night Dress (£59.95), with its beautiful black and metallic gold lace and fitted silhouette, will really make you stand out on the dance floor. For the finishing touch, we’ve teamed it with the Biker Chic Leather Jacket (£169.95) to add a funky twist and continued the elegance with the Dainty Diva Charm Shoes (£39.95) and matching Diva Jacquard Bag (£29.95).








Party hard this Christmas wearing this stylish, stand out look. Layer the Man About Town Blazer (£99.95) and Man About Town Waistcoat (£49.95) over the Super Smart Shirt (£29.95). The mix of textured black with the rich purple work perfectly together and give a unique style. Add Joe’s Skinny Jeans (£34.95) and the Mix It Up Leather Boots (£64.95) to complete the look. Teaming the jacket and waistcoat with skinny jeans gives the outfit an edgy, more laid back vibe.


The Christmas Market

Who doesn’t love a cute Christmas jumper? This Cosy Polar Bear Jumper (£44.95) has a super soft feel and we love the mix of the soft blue and red colours, printed sleeve detail and the cool (excuse the pun) polar bear design. It goes great with Joe’s Jeggings (£24.95), the Ultimate Coat (£69.95), Embroidered Suede Boots (£59.95) and the Unique and Quirky Tote Bag (£34.95). Perfect for keeping warm and looking stylish at a Christmas market whilst sipping mulled wine!


This look will keep you warm and cosy while also looking stylish as you sample your way through the stalls – pint or mulled wine in hand. We love the festive Fair Isle print on The Cool And Collected Crew Knit (£34.95) and you can smarten up the look with the Longline Military Coat (£120.00) – a modern take on the classic military coat. We’d suggest pairing it with the Burnout Biker Jeans (£49.95) and the Must Have Oiled Leather Boots (£69.95.) Finish off this outfit by adding the Mens Cool Wool Trapper (£29.95) with faux fur lining and cool alpine wool pattern.


Christmas Day

This first look for you ladies is great for a more casual vibe at the Christmas party or would make a perfect Christmas day outfit. The gorgeous Christmas Spirit Dress (£49.95) comes in red and green this season and it’s hard to pick a favourite! We’ve gone with the red but the accessories we’ve chosen will go with the green version just as well. The floral devore fabric on the neckline and sleeves gives the dress a lavish look and by pairing it with textured accessories it gives an even richer and funkier festive feel. We’ve gone for Paisley Net Tights (£8.95), the Mystic Enchantment Velvet Bag (£29.95) and Chrissie’s Favourite Velvet Boots (£44.95).


The In The Spirit Christmas Shirt (£37.95) is a subtle take on the Christmas shirt meaning you can wear it all through the winter season. For a more casual look on the big day why not wear the shirt open and layer it over the Better Than Basic T-Shirt (£12.95). We love it with the Straight Joe Jeans (£39.95) and the Distressed Finish Chelsea Boots (£54.95) for an effortlessly cool festive look. 

An impromptu festive tipple

Get in the Christmas spirit with the Up All Night Floral Tunic (£44.95). It has incredible attention to detail with beautiful embellishment and a gorgeous red floral design. Keep it simple by teaming it with the Ready for Winter Leggings (£24.95). We’ve picked out the red in the flower detail with the Funky Tassel Cross Over Bag (£29.95) and finished the look off with the Perfection Pixie Boots (£49.95). These feminine brown suedette boots have gorgeous beaded ankle ties which add a unique touch. This look will certainly get you in the festive spirit when you get that call for ‘just a cheeky half’ (that we all know is never just that).


This next look mixes fun with cool and will be great for festive drinks with friends. The Bike Dolf Christmas T-Shirt (£17.95) has a quirky print and the bold red will really make you stand out. We recommend you team this with the Slim Joe Jeans (£42.95) and the Distressed Leather Boots (£59.95). Add some edge to this whole look with the Road Holder Leather Jacket (£199.00). The red pop of colour continues through the outfit with the bright laces on the boots and unique red detailing on the biker jacket – perfection.


Jacket shapes feature

Joe’s perfect coat for your shape

Don’t you just love it when you rediscover your favourite winter coat after months of it hiding away at the back of your wardrobe? Well, we want to times that feeling by 10 when you pull out your favourite Joe Browns coat year after year knowing not only does it flatter your gorgeous body, but expresses your personality and makes you feel remarkable!

But with so many stunning designs to choose from it can be a minefield knowing which one is the best suited for your unique body shape.

So with the help of some sweets we had lying around (we’re never without sweets in JB HQ) we’ve matched up the styles that best suit your beautiful body shapes….

A great trick to finding the right coat is to find a style that flatters not flattens your best assets. Single-breasted options are best for hourglasses, with an open neck to flatter your top half and a simple A-line bottom will skim your hips beautifully.


(Stand Out Check Coat £89.95)

Military styles with detailed buttons are great for drawing the attention to your top half while slimming your lower half. (This one also comes in black).


(Keep It Simple Coat £79.95)

A central fastening is great for lengthening your body and skimming over your tummy. Worn open in a swing-style with a contrasting top underneath will divide up your middle section even more while showing off your cracking legs.


(Distinctive Coat £114.95)

Create instant curves with this feminine shaped coat. The flattering full-skirt will accentuate your gorgeous lean shape and an assortment of off-centre detailing adds an element of sophisticated charm.


(Absolute Coat £74.95)

A deep V neck will look awesome on you. A slightly flared bottom will balance out your top half and the lace detailing on the back of this little beauty sinches you in perfectly at the waist and gives your finished look an extra touch of elegance.


(Lace Trim Coat £89.95)

“Wearing Joe Browns has helped me get my life back on track”

Ever feel like some stories in life just need to be told?

We did when Tracey got in touch with us on Facebook to thank us for designing clothes that helped her get through what can only be described as a horrendous time in her life.

Our aim is to make people feel confident, liberated and free so you can take on anything life throws at you and life really did throw it at Tracey.

In the last year, doctors discovered a large aneurism on Tracey’s brain, her husband of 30 years left her and her father passed away. We couldn’t imagine what Tracey was going through.

“It has been horrendous. Discovering the aneurism on top of the shock that the husband I had loved since the age of 16 was leaving me was devastating. When my darling dad then passed away we were all heartbroken.”

In March, with a 77% chance of the aneurism rupturing, Tracey, 53, endured a 9 and-a-half hour operation followed by 2 weeks in intensive care to remove it and is now going through a long recovery process. Tracey had a facial spasm which meant she couldn’t smile or laugh for a long time after the operation and her speech was also badly affected.


Tracey just after surgery

Tracey told us that at the lowest point in her life she felt determined to stay strong for the sake of her friends and family, especially her two sons Conor, 23 and Elliot, 21. She felt to keep her spirit up on the inside she needed to dress positively and confidently on the outside.

“The Joe Browns clothes I put on after the operation really did perk me up. I felt happy in them and ready to get back on track. Marriage breakdown worries, financial worries, ill and aging parent worries; I managed to keep a brave and cheerful face on to try to lessen other people’s concern by wearing cheerful clothes.”


Tracey wearing JB post-op.

Tracey’s story really touched us at Joe Browns HQ and we wanted to thank her for sharing it with us by giving her an afternoon of pampering.

We arranged for Tracey to come up from her home in Rugby to Joe’s offices in Leeds for a spot of lunch, tour of HQ, a personal styling session with hair and make-up by a professional artist and some pictures taken in our studio by our photographer.

Get Tracey’s look:

Jacquard Velvet Tunic £34.95 

“It was a lovely afternoon at Joe Browns – a real treat!

“Friendly, warm and creative people, lovely food and gorgeous clothes – I loved everything! Joe Browns clothes have been my favourite for several years. I find the quirkiness and boho chic looks are timeless and I can wear them forever.

“I am delighted to say whenever I wear Joe Browns, which always cheers me up, I get compliments and questions about where I got the clothes.”

Tracey thank you for sharing your personal story with us and we wish you tons of happiness and new adventures as you recover. We think you, and your sons, are a huge inspiration.

Into the woods…The New Autumn/Winter Collection

Each season we love to take you somewhere completely unknown and exciting – somewhere full of intrigue, mystery and of course fantastical designs that make you want to throw them on and embark on a spontaneous adventure, feeling confident, liberated and free!

The Joe Browns New Autumn/Winter Collection

Often we’re gallivanting all over the world to do this for you, but this autumn, we were inspired closer to home by the whimsical charm of our own beautiful English forests.
