  • 'Tis the season for seeing red

    November 21, 2016

    As the Christmas season approaches, the annual descent into collective chaos is already upon us and we are beginning to see red. Trees are appearing in windows in the third week of November; supermarkets are replete with mince pies and party-ready platters; Jingle Bells and Slade have begun their relentless assault on our eardrums; and we are expected to remain merry throughout - all the while shopping until we drop. Even the turkeys who didn't vote for Christmas seem glad to be heading for the exit now that the advent countdown has been triggered.

    But we are also seeing red in a good way with a selection of Christmas crackers en rouge from our catalogue, none of which will land you in the red at this expensive time of year!

  • Frockery for the big freeze

    December 1, 2015


    Winter has officially arrived and, with it, plummeting temperatures, snow and ice. The frockmobile is currently sporting a white winter coat and will no doubt be a reluctant starter after sitting idly on the drive for several days. The frockers’ garage should really have been emptied of junk during the better weather (not that we ever had any better weather) to allow it to fulfil its proper purpose, but we didn’t get round it it (again!)

    Anyway,  warmer togs are now a wardrobe necessity as we don’t predict a move in the mercury any time soon, so we have been selecting some stylish stock from the catalogue that we think might help banish the winter blues.

    This vintage curly sheepskin jacket in natural cream is one we are loath to part with as we absolutely love it, but our personal outerwear collection is already bursting at the seams and we are operating a strictly one in, one out policy.

     Another winter white favourite...

    We are big fans of Norwegian knits and we have a few pieces in the catalogue which will cheer up any winter day.

     The camel coat is a true classic which never goes out of fashion. This one, by Long Tall Sally, was sadly too big for K Frocker, who really really wanted it!

    We have other camel classics, including this vintage double breasted coat by Sixth Sense. More cosy camel  >>>

    Mohair is another of our favourite fabrics and traditional stoles and scarves are always popular. More mohair >>>

    The luxury of pure cashmere will see you through the winter months in several shades of sumptuousness! More cashmere >>>

    And last but not least, you’ll be sure to get noticed in these colourful stripy leg warmers and matching gloves.

    The big freeze may be here but you can stay stylish and warm with a little help from our winter warmers! Like Fi Frocker, pictured below modelling her favourite animal print onesie...

  • It's a wrap

    March 23, 2013

    Shawls, stoles and wraps have been flying off the Frockery shelves of late and we were practically cleaned out of mohair, so we thought we'd better list a few new arrivals and highlight the benefits of wrapping up for spring (which is still promising to be just around the corner!)

    More mohair has just come in...

  • Something in the mohair

    November 9, 2012

    There's definitely something in the moh-air at the moment. Whether in the form of scarves, shawls and hats, slouchy jumpers and cardigans, jackets, coats or capes, it has fair been flying out of the shop over the past few weeks as folk get geared up to combat the late autumn and winter chills.

    An ever popular choice with our customers, here's a selection of some of our favourite mohair pieces from the current catalogue, but you'll find plenty more examples if you search our collection.

    The winter white mohair slouch cardigan jacket by Donegal Designs (pictured above) has just arrived, along with the vintage amber mohair cardigan below, which we have accessorised with a silk Scottie dog scarf and belt to give it a more up to date look.

  • Get set for St Andrew's Day with tartan frockery!

    November 15, 2011

    In anticipation of St Andrew's Day on 30th November, we thought we'd showcase a few pieces of our tartan frockery.

    You'll find lots more Celtic-themed clobber in our Scots Frockery department, so do take a wee gander! We also have a couple of black Argyll kilt jackets in stock  which aren't yet on the website - please drop us an email if you are interested.
