MAGGIE ALDERSON, novelist, philosopher of fashion and arbiter of style, brings us a new collection of her much-loved Style Notes column.

Find out why men hate shopping and why women love wearing clothes men hate.  Share the frustration of the search for the perfect Walkable Heeled Shoe and consider whether a size 'large' item of clothing is acceptable as a gift.

Learn why it's good if your child is too embarrassed to be seen with you, and how to harness your life force through the power of yoga – and liberally applied make-up.

Discover some key terms for the fashion addicted – Show Crow, Bag Hag and Fleabag – and work out where you fit on the spectrum.

Warm, witty and wise, Style Notes is the ultimate insider's guide – a knowledgeable but not-too-serious take on the wonders and weirdness of the world of fashion, style and life beyond.
