why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

Tailoring.....

Tailoring is going to be huge again this winter so get ahead this week and you can WIN the one am wearing in the blog.  Just leave a comment below or Instagram or retweet the blog via Twitter to enter, deadline Saturday 20th June...Good Luck!







TIP...what you wear underneath is your choice, everything goes, but for me the top tip is about buying an actual menswear suit as the cut is sharper and more flattering, just get a smaller size or get it altered after, suiting is a classic so this will be worth spending the extra to make sure it fits well

Modern Bohemia.....

This week you can WIN this cute sixties boxy jacket by Tory Burch all you have to do is leave a comment bellow or Instagram or retweet the blog on Twitter to enter, deadline saturday 23rd may
good luck!











TIP...inspired by the gucci girl from the AW15 show, my look for summer is slightly bohemian and thrown together using colours that clash but are vintage in theme, wearing loose pants with an oversized jumper but the boxy jacket keep the shape tight, opting for a cropped style to allow the layers to be seen from the hems to the sleeve details but a high shine give it a modern touch

Red.....

One of my favourite colours to wear, red is going to be huge again for next season too so start experimenting how you would wear this sexy shade.  This week you can WIN the Etre Cecile pair I am wearing, just leave a comment below for your chance to enter...deadline Saturday 16th May.
Good Luck!










TIP... turn a classic tracksuit into a cool trouser shape for summer  in three easy steps: gather at the waist to create shape and show off the ankle the crop is in this summer and for the season ahead, unzip hems to give a bell bottom (another important style detail)and keep things simple with red, white and black only

The Mini Bag.....










TIP... bags are becoming the new accessory to be matched to your outfit like you would a piece of jewellery, it should compliment your look so why not play with colour like I have here by wearing a pale neutral shade all over, tones of grey work really well with most colours but I particularly like grey and yellow

Socks & Sandals.....








TIP...if you have just got a new pair of sandals that, like me, you are desperate to wear already why not roll up your hems and add a thick wool sock for a modern grunge way to wear them
