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!

New Season.....

TIP...the easiest (and cost effective) way to head into the new season is with a pair of printed jeans, they will update and old jumper or coat wear with heels and for the rock chic in you try a biker jacket but in metallic

jeans by isabel marant http://www.net-a-porter.com
boots by barbara bui http://www.barbarabui.fr
sunglasses by the row http://www.lindafarrow.co.uk

TIP...the bomber and the silk tracksuit bottoms are the next two key pieces and both are perfect for the sportlux trend that will be happening clash your printed silk or stick to neutral and add print in the top half but mixing and matching print and texture works well dress the look up with heels
