This week we are totally obsessed with John Mayer; who keeps disappearing for ages then reappearing looking as stylish as ever. He is one celebrity who hasn’t always been a fashion guru but his style has definitely evolved from nerdy to high end casual wear and we love it! There is something that has stayed the same with John Mayer and that is his love for loose fitting trousers; and he makes them work.

He is actually noted as one of the most stylish celebrities right now and has even been awarded one of GQ’s ‘most stylish celebrities’ awards… no wonder we want more men to be dressing like him. In numerous of interviews he has described his style as being from ‘wonderland’, a miss mash of patterns, colours, styles and in that he has embraced his haters and it’s proving to be successful. His basic style is accompanied by denim shirts, leather jackets, slogan tees and trainers and he fits the criteria of a folk singer very well.

So, we have decided to give you a few ideas and tips into dressing like one of the world’s best dressed celebrity males.




Boss green akeen trainersThese black Boss Green trainers are the perfect blend of leather and suede; which is in this season. The mesh panels add an extra touch of versatility to these sneakers and would be perfect paired with any style of jeans for an added touch of comfort to any outfit you plan on wearing!


cruyff bomba trainers


These black Cruyff ‘Bomba’ trainers with contrasting leather and textile print are again another comfortable yet stylish sneaker that add the casual feel to an outfit. The white sole adds a modernsied edge to what could be a classic trainer.




folk shirtThis Folk shirt in light blue is a classic John Mayer shirt, the cream coloured buttons add to the folk style and the formality of the shirt can be changed upon occasion. If you are going out during the day, pairing this shirt with some darker denim jeans, or black jeans and for night wear; a more formal skinny trouser and some brogues would suit the scene.


y-3 shirt
This Y-3 tartan shirt shouts casual all the way, and the oversized buttons and large front pockets meet the neccesity of a daytime shirt. Wearing it open on mild days in the summer and closed in the winter means that this shirt will be ideal for all year round.




billionaire boys clubThis Billionaire Boys Club top is a super cool, illustrated t-shirt and is definitely something John Mayer would wear. The oversized astronaut printed logo and crew neck would look perfect paired with a pair of jeans and trainers; a similar style to John Mayer’s everyday wear.






This Diesel ‘T-zosimor’ t-shirt with ‘only the brave’ logo printed on it is yet another super casual t-shirt which in this light blue colour is a summer t-shirt. The classic fit will be flattering and ideal for any type of weather.


Sienna Miller first made an appearance back in 2003 where she became THE one to watch. And yet, it’s now 2015 and she is still taking on cool meets chic in her eye catching outfits that at Thackerays we adore, and I mean it. The way she makes her style look so effortlessly put together is without a doubt something that screams wow! And since stepping out in that beautiful multicoloured midi dress earlier this year, her style game has gone through the roof.

Sienna often rocks minimal smart wear, pairing super fitted pencil skirts with oversized blazers, and baggy cigarette trousers with low cut knitwear. She definitely has an eye for all things smart and glamorous. So, we thought we should put together some pieces that will make you feel just like this British actress and model.

Pencil skirts:
47792-1 This Boss Black ‘Oilina’ skirt in blue is perfect for the classic Sienna Miller look. Attached with a black snake skin  look belt giving the added touch to that all so dress down piece, that would look perfect paired with anything from a  plain black t-shirt to a sheer blouse. The slight denim effect makes it look casual, yet at the same time not taking  away from the smart feel.




This Ted Baker ‘Bebu’ skirt in black is definitely smarter than the Boss Black skirt, as the panel of leather adds the edgy tone that is needed to bring out your inner cool! These styles of skirts keep coming around every season, so at least you will always know… they’ll never go out of fashion!






This Selected Femme jumper in peach will be a versatile wardrobe essential. The colour is soft and the material is light enough for summer; paired with a skirt, yet easy to wear with layers in the winter, as well as boots and jeans.



This Armani Jeans fitted jumper in red is the piece for you if you dare to wear the v  neckline. The ruffled sleeves creates subtle detail, and this bold piece will be something that  is needed to make heads turn.



Relaxed fit trousers:



These French Connection black and white checked peg leg trousers are definitely something Sienna would give a thumbs-up  to. Their relaxed fit is perfect for you women that don’t always want to be seen in skinnies, and the light monochrome touch  makes it easy to wear with either black or white; or perhaps a splash of colour if you are feeling brave.






Then, lastly we have these Selected Femme tapered trousers; again in a relaxed fit just like Sienna’s trousers. The diamond illustrated print makes them eye catching and the way they go in at the top will make them flattering. Pair them with a plain t-shirt and some black heels for a night out, and some brogues for the daytime look.





The Start Of An English Summer – Ralph Lauren and Vogue

As summer begins, the sun is shining and festivals are on their way. However, the true significance of summer for us? Think strawberries and cream, whites and “quiet on the court please”. Wimbledon of course.

With less than a week to go until the 3 week long event, we’ve stocked up our wardrobe with pastels and whites, and our fridge with pimms and fruit. In the process we also dreamed of attending Ralph Lauren and Vogue’s Annual Wimbledon Party.

Celebrating 10 years of being the official wimbledon outfitter, Ralph’s party hosted at Kensington Palace Orangery was filled with actors, singers, models and a fair few Lady and Lords.

With a majority if them wearing Ralph Lauren Collection, there was a lot of blues, creams and camels found within the crowd of specially picked people.

Take a look below to see our favourite looks of the night:

Laura_Bailey_3350572kDorothy, is that you? Oh wait, it’s Laura Bailey looking INCREDIBLE!  Her ankle grazing sky blue dress is perfect for an outdoors garden party, and her braided hair compliments this cutesy dress. However in typical Laura Bailey she has rocked this look up with high pink platform heels and amazing cat-eye sunglasses.

Manolo-Blahnik-Vogue-23Jun15-Getty_b_426x639The king of shoes has now just earned the title of the king of summer suits (that’s a thing right?) Manolo Blahnik looks perfect in this sorbet yellow suit with casual blue and yellow undone bow tie. Plus he looks so happy (it’s the suits effect I’m sure… or all the cocktails) and reminds me of a Granddad? Like I just want to hug him…

Chelsea_Leyland_3350579k  DJ for the night, Chelsea Leyland wore an amazing Ralph Lauren Collection cream dress which has a Bohemian feel to it, unfortunately hidden behind a set of decks for the majority of the night.

We’ve Got You Covered This Summer

As the end of June is nearly here and July is fast approaching, here at Thackerays we think we have been pretty lucky with the weather so far. In fact do we dare say we might actually have a Summer season this year (touch wood) ?!

Although, lets not get too hasty- the chilled morning air still gets us grabbing for our jackets on the way to work, and then by lunch time all windows are open in Thackerays HQ with the hope that a tiny bit of breeze may make it’s way through into our computer crowded rooms.

This confusing weather, has got us thinking… what could possibly be the perfect outfit for this type of weather? Warm enough so we’re not shivering in the morning, yet light enough to not restrict us of any much needed air on our way home.

After much deliberation of light weight jackets, thick cardigans, vest tops and scarves… we have an answer:


Start off with a vest top, over the top goes a light weight jumper or blouse, and over that goes the jacket… but not just any jacket.

It needs to be waterproof (we are still in England you know), it should be able to do up right to the neck for those cold mornings… and it HAS to look flawless with everything you put it with… quite specific right?

Don’t worry we’ve got options for you:

Armani Jeans Jacket Was: £269.95 Now: £159.95

This Armani Jeans white drawstring jacket is perfect for summer days out. It being white means it goes with everything… and we mean everything. The elasticated waist gives your body definition under all those layers, and it’s hood means you  are covered for those random showers of rain we have here and there.


Barbour Jacket £179.95

Alternatively, go edgier this summer with this Barbour light weight jacket. Channel you’re inner biker chick and pair this jacket with summer dresses and feminine blouses.


Religion Duster Coat Was: £124.95 Now: £89.95

Glam your wardrobe up this summer with this lightweight duster trench coat from Religion. It’s relaxed shape means you can wear it with anything, with the option of the waist belt to cinch you in if your outfit requires (or the weather does). This coat is a no brainer, so when you’re still half asleep in the morning you can grab it and know that when you get home in the evening there will be no shocked “What was I thinking?!” thoughts running through your mind.

Style Steal – Couple Edition

Since Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift became an item 3 months ago, they have become THE couple to watch. After copious amounts of PDA at the Billboard awards, and them both looking perfect together, we decided that  we want to steal Taylor’s style and find someone for ourselves who dresses like Calvin.



While Calvin sticks to a very monotone style, dressing up casual outfits with leather jackets and looking handsome in suits; Taylor is very much the opposite. After experimenting with her style over the past few years she has finally found it – and it is amazing!
