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… 

 

Ashley
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.” 

 

 

Debby
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!” 

 

 

Alyssa
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!” 

 

 

Grace
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! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Perfect Partywear For Your Shape

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!

 

29-11-2016-strawberry-v2

(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.

 

29-11-2016-hourglass-v2

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.

 

29-11-2016-straight

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!

29-11-2016-apple

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.

29-11-2016-pear

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!

The Joe Browns Christmas Party: Canapes, Competitions and Catwalks!

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!

 “Joe Browns is cool, it’s just so unique!” said Jessica, blogger of Heart Shaped Bones.

The party started in full swing with drinks, nibbles and plenty of chat about everything Joe Browns and our guests were treated to goody bags filled with lots of cool Joe Browns treats.

The popular pick a button competition was brought back to life which meant one lucky winner won a huge £250 Joe Browns voucher (Which went down pretty well to say the least)!

The store looked amazing (even if we do say so ourselves) decked out in our new Christmas range and was admired by our guests who loved all the hidden gems and decorations.

Tracey, who writes The Naughty Forty Diaries said: “Seeing the clothes in store really brings them to life!”

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:

We really loved the Cosy Polar Bear Jumper (£44.95) paired with Joe’s Jeggings (£24.95), Statement Long Boots (£54.95) and the look was finished off with Christmas Pudding Ear Muffs (£17.95). An extra special Christmas outfit!

 

Our model Fiona rocked the Wrap Up Velvet Party Dress (£44.95). It also comes in black which will make the perfect LBD for any party! The red version was put with Chrissie’s Favourite Velvet Boots (£44.95) which worked so well.

 

How stunning did Kimberly look wearing the Sophisticated Check Coat (£99.95)? It was teamed with Key To My Heart Velvet Shoes (£39.95) and the Mystic Enchantment Velvet Bag (£29.95).

 

Troy turned up the heat wearing the Lightning T-Shirt (£22.95), Joe’s Skinny Jeans (£34.95) and Must Have Oiled Leather Boots (£69.95). This awesome look was topped off with the Retro Stripe Leather Jacket (£199.00) which was a truly show stopping piece.

 

Pete really worked the effortless layered look wearing the In The Woods Jumper (£39.95) and the Longchamp Parka (£89.95) over the top. This was matched with Slim Joe Jeans (£42.95) and All New Vintage Brogues (£59.95) to give a totally individual look.

 

Guests also got a sneak peek at some of our new summer styles which aren’t available until 2018! It has us all dreaming of sunny weather while it was a chilly 3 degrees outside.

It’s only fair to share a little glimpse with you too…

Good times were had by all and we can’t wait to hold loads more instore events in the future! Watch this space…

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.

Don’t forget to treat your feet this Christmas!

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!

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.

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

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
Ladies

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).


 

 

 

 

 

 

Guys

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
Ladies

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!

Guys

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
Ladies

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).

Guys

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
Ladies

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).

 
Guys

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.


 

Joe Browns Meadowhall

Joe’s First Fabulous Brick-and-Mortar Store: Launch Day Event!

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!

Joe Browns Store

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.

food

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”.

customers

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!

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.

Cola

(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).

Pear

(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.

BonBon

(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.

Liquorice

(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.

Strawberry

(Lace Trim Coat £89.95)
