Here come the girls!
International Women's Day and Mother's Day are on the horizon. Make March a celebration of all things female with our pick of quirky, feisty and fearlessly feminine fashion, homewares and accessories.
Celebrate her curves with this quirky vase from Lindfield-based Kell & Collins, the perfect foil for those special occasion flowers. Fun, cheeky and full of feminine sass, it’ll liven up any living room or mantlepiece.
Say it proud
The Insta-market was saturated a few years back with a range of ‘Mother/Mama/One Good Mutha/Strong Girls Club’ style tees. This iconic design from Kent-based Mere Souer, aka the gorgeous Carrie, has such cachet it was even copied by a Major High Street Label. Get the original and best direct from the maker.
If you’re going to save the planet, do it in a bikini of flames whilst riding a pink tiger with rainbow eyes. This kitsch, comic-book style tee from Stella McCartney is part of Net-A-Porter’s official International Women’s Day collection, with proceeds going to Women for Women International.
Light her up
We love the neon lipstick shades of these cool candles, from Lewes-based Cordelia James. A feisty and funky accompaniment to a grown-up candlelit dinner.
Ah, leopard print, that eternal staple beloved of Pat Butcher and all other fearless, feisty females. Give the tiger in your life (that includes you, btw) this supersoft sweater from Sugarhill Brighton – £5 from the proceeds will go to charity Give Directly and help a low-income household in the developing world.
Lend a Hand
£35 from each sale of these gorgeous pendants from Links of London founder Annoushka Ducas’ International Women’s Day collection will go to Women Supporting Women. Choose from three designs depicting the help and support young women receive through Women Supporting Women – helping hands, hoping hands and loving hands.
