“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.”
“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…)
Now the party season’s in full swing it’s more important than ever you look and feel confident as well as 100% yourself.
So with the help of some Christmas decs (to help us illustrate what we’re going on about) we’ve given you and all your gorgeous body shapes a helping hand finding that perfect party look that’ll make you want to dance all night long!
(Also known as the inverted triangle, aka you have a broader chest, wide shoulders and a narrow waist and hips.) What you guys want to do is accentuate your lower body while softening your upper body. One great way of doing this is with a jumpsuit or 2-piece. The Sophisticated Velvet Jumpsuit has gorgeous stretch velour up top with a flattering waistband and will help balance you out perfectly.
This is if your waist and hips are similar in proportion and set off by a tiny waist. If this is you then you want to accentuate your beautiful curves, so go for tight fitting lightweight styles. We think you’ll look great in our Wrap Up Velvet Party Dress. The sheer mesh sleeves keep you covered up, with a sexy slinky edge.
If your waist, shoulders and hips are all a similar width than you’re going to want to show off your great arms and legs while creating some curves. Skater style dresses will do this for you, so we recommend the Jazzy Jacquard Skater Dress which has a metallic finish and is lots of fun!
If most of your weight is above your hips, you want to elongate your torso and show off your amazing legs. Empire styles are great for this and also anything that has a belt to show off the smallest part of your waist.
The Glitz Glam Party Dress is not only stunning, but it has a really flattering twist knot front which will cinch you in under the bust. Then the beautiful velour fabric will drape perfectly over your middle which will make you feel a million dollars.
If you’re a pear shape (meaning your lower body is wider than your upper body) you should be looking to create points of interest on your top half to balance out your bottom half. We recommend pairing the A Little Bit Different Tunic with Our Favourite Leggings. The hem of the tunic is in-line with your hips to keep them balanced and your eyes are drawn to the gorgeous gold detailing around the bust.
No matter what size or shape you are there’s a style to suit everyone. We hope you have a great time rocking these pieces this festive season!
We kicked-off the Christmas festivities last Thursday night with our first blogger event at our brand-new store!
Bloggers and VIP customers from all across West Yorkshire braved the cold to join us in Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield to get a glimpse of our inspiring flagship store as well as an exclusive peek at some Spring Summer styles not available until January!
After a quick Q&A session with the founder of Joe Browns, Simon Brown, on how the original idea of Joe Browns first came about and how it’s become such a success, guests were treated to a fabulous catwalk show where models strutted their stuff wearing items from the new collection. Here are our favourite looks from the show:
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.
With all the crazy running around we do in the lead up to Christmas, our poor old trotters bear the brunt, which gets heavier and heavier as per our consumption of mince pies.
So see it as not treating yourself, but your poor burdened, hard-working feet that deserve a treat too this Christmas…
Dancing all night
Steal the show this Christmas in these gorgeous Gatsby Vintage T-Bar Shoes (£39.95). The bronze metallic compliments the brown suede beautifully and gives these Christmas party shoes that glam factor. Metallic is on trend for this festive season, so you won’t have any trouble matching these with a party dress. Don’t forget to show off your incredible dance moves!
These beautiful Very Velvet Double Strap Shoes (£39.95) will see you through the night and certainly way past midnight (step aside Cinders). The combination of rich purple and velvet make these shoes a must have for any Christmas occasion. The pretty bow adds a stylish touch to these Christmas party shoes and they’ll look stunning paired with a classic black dress.
Walking in the woods
There’s nothing like a frosty winter walk with your loved ones and pooch in tow. These super comfy and stylish Distinctive Wedge Boots (£59.95) are perfect to wear as they’ll keep your feet warm and the low wedge is great for all that walking. We love the stand out red detail which will bring a pop of colour to the winter days.
These Ultimate Leather Boots (£79.95) are no ordinary pair of black boots and are awesome for your winter adventures. The mix of leather and suede give these riding boots that extra uniqueness. These are a great investment piece as you’ll be able to wear them with so many different outfits! We bet you’ll be wearing them for years to come.
Rocking at a gig
Your choice of footwear needs to be as cool as the band you’re rocking out to! These Sassy Crackled Biker Boots (£49.95) will make you stand out from the crowd as they are a totally unique twist on the classic biker boot. They have a crackled metallic finish which adds a touch of glamour and they’re really comfy – leaving you to concentrate on having a great night!
Make a statement in these Signature Ankle Boots (£49.95). The gold stud detailing makes these a perfect fit for any gig or concert. You won’t want to stop rocking once you’ve got them on your feet!
Dashing around before the big day
The rush up to Christmas day is tiring work, right? So make sure you’re running around in comfort and style in these Embroidered Suede Boots (£59.95). They’ve got a chunky block heel making them perfect for all that dashing about. The boho hand embroidery detail and tassels give them a really funky vide and they also come in black, if a darker colour boot is more your thing.
These Cosy And Cute Wedge Boots (£44.95) will make your hectic days before Christmas so much easier as they are super comfy. The wedge heel will make you strong on your feet as you do your Christmas shopping and the knitted ankle band will keep you warm and cosy.
Creating office envy
Looking for a smart, unique, stylish and comfy pair of shoes to wear for work? That’s quite a long check list but these Remarkably Vintage Shoes (£44.95) tick all the boxes. Turn your co-workers heads for all the right reasons in these unique tweed shoes. They’re perfectly finished off with a cute diamante buckle that will add some festive sparkle to your working day!
How striking are these Marvellous Tweedy Shoe Boots (£39.95)? They’re a quirky twist on the classic shoe boot with gorgeous red velvet laces (perfect for the festive season). We predict plenty of compliments coming your way in the office canteen!
Styling it out on Christmas day
Who doesn’t love to dress up on Christmas day? What better way to add some stylish festive cheer to your outfit than by wearing these Irresistible Velvet Ankle Boots (£44.95). The embossed velvet boots come in a gorgeous rich red colour and really have the wow factor.
Wear Chrissie’s Favourite Velvet Boots (£44.95) on Christmas day and we can guarantee all your friends and family will be wanting to borrow them! They’ll have to get their own pair though, as you’ll be able to wear these right through the season. The lavish velvet boots have an embossed texture and stylish narrow heel with quirky lace up fastening. Don’t leave them in the hallway over Christmas or they might go walkabouts!
Brightening up a dull day
Be bold and bright in these Forever Elegant Velvet Bootees (£44.95). The striking teal colour is not for the faint hearted and will suit anyone with a vivacious personality to match! Don’t be afraid to take chances while strutting your stuff in these spectacular boots.
How awesome up are these Individuals Lace Up Boots (£59.95)? By wearing these you’ll brighten up the dullest of days. The vibrant baroque floral fabric and black satin laces give these ankle boots a funky and fashionable look. Make sure you have plenty of fun wearing them and don’t let anything hold you back!
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).
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).
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.
We are so thrilled to announce the official opening of Joe’s first store. The ability to see, touch, feel and try our products is now easier than ever!
Doors opened at 10 a.m Thursday 2nd November at Meadowhall shopping centre, and in true “Joe” style the day was jam-packed with lots of fun and free goodies!
We had to start the day right of course, with complimentary breakfast (courtesy of Koffeke) to get us prepared for the busy day’s events.
The day consisted of a variety of entertainment including; music, food, catwalks and competitions. Local acoustic band, The Squires, set a feel-good upbeat vibe throughout the day, while a collaboration of stores in Meadowhall provided us with scrumptious treats.
Our very own custom-made mocktail presented by The Botanist was served with dry ice steaming off the tray. “The spirit of Joe Browns” was incredibly tasty and unusual! Definitely one of our highlights.
From goody bags to our “pick a button” competition the opportunity to grab a prize was high. Customers had a chance to win vouchers to spend in-store or online at Joe Browns, starting from £5 up to a whopping £100!
It was great to see so many chirpy faces and great energy bringing our store to life. We really got to see the humorous and fun side of Joe’s staff! After all, you have to “love the life you live, live the life you love”.
We are so pleased with the best of both worlds approach- online and physical (turns out we are in great company… if Amazon can do it, we can too!). Thanks for all the continued support we hope to see you (in the flesh) soon!

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.
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.
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.
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.
