For all the detail lovers out there, this blog’s for you! We’ve got some truly unique pieces this season full of unique embellishments, amazing textures and intricate designs so we thought we’d zoom in on some of our finest pieces so you can see the craft behind the clothing!
Who said romance was dead? Fall in love with this decadent lace dress. Featuring gorgeous scalloped edges, the red lace is beautifully layered across the black underskirt highlighting the intricacy of the pattern and creating floaty movement and fluttering texture, oozing with elegance.
The lady in red… and so you’ll be in this absolute show stopper! The red overlay is nothing shy of striking in contrasting black lining creating a subtle allure. The scalloped v neckline and subtly capped sleeves create a figure-flattering look full of mystery.
And if you’d prefer something a little more subtle this dress is also available in sultry black.
If you can’t sparkle at Christmas, when can you? This dress is adorned with sequins for a truly magical style. Only when you focus in can you see how truly intricate the sequin design is, the multiway of monochrome colour creates flickers of light and movement in all the right places.
This stunning foil print dress is something new this season and we just love it! When the light catches you can shimmer and shine all night long in this stunning foil print jersey dress. The gorgeous side ruching draws attention to the waist creating a flattering dark shade around your middle and will have you looking and feeling amazing all season long.
The ultimate in elegant fabrics, this rich and regal dress is simply lavish. Finished with layered cuffs and a gorgeous asymmetrical hem, it’s definitely one for those who like to be a little distinctive.
Champagne corks have been popping galore at Joe Browns HQ!
The celebrations started when we were shortlisted for the Best Store Design for our flagship store in Meadowhall Sheffield AND Best Fashion Retailer of the Year at the really prestigious Drapers awards in London.
Unfortunately, we were just pipped to the post, but we’re so proud to have made the final shortlist and be celebrated amongst so many other amazing big fashion brands.
In this sexy line-up (from left to right) we’ve got Darren, our FD, Derek, our Chairman, Tracey, our Marketing Director, Loz, our Marketing Campaign Manager and Andy our Store Manager.
Just a few days (and several bloody marys) after this, we dolled up again for the Meadowhall Awards in Sheffield.
This time we didn’t walk away empty handed!
Andy (this dapper chap) did us proud scooping the Manager of the Year Award!
He said: “It was the most incredible surprise to win! It means so much as it was voted for by staff, who must have written nice things about me!
“The team are amazing at Joe Browns and really do live and breathe the fun-loving ethos of the brand, making it such an enjoyable place to work and an inviting space for customers.”
If one award wasn’t enough, our gorgeous Debbie, Deputy Store Manager, was also highly commended for Employee of the Year.
A huge well done to everyone at Joe Browns for all their continuous hard graft and of course, you guys, our amazing customers, who we wouldn’t be here without.
This week we want to introduce you to one of the coolest guys we’ve ever met, Andrew Rushworth…
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
With thanks to Oliver Watts for all the amazing shots and of course Andy – thank you for being you and finding us.
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)…
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.
“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…)
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.
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.
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.
