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!

TIP...if you dare the all over leather look is the new way to wear leather for autumn I have matched a leather tux style jacket with these amazing high waisted trousers and added a crop jumper in a high neck to give this a more grunge daytime twist the green shoes are amazing so add these for a strong statement and look for neon detail but keep it to a minimum detail

shoes by acne 

TIP...the 90's parka it still around for winter but the new trend to look out for is contrasting fabrics like these leather sleeve that have been added to the coat and also contrast against the embroidery mix and match textures its key for this aw12 season i have worn with leather shorts and boots and keep legs bare to stop it looking so solid

shorts by theory 
boots by new rock

TIP...the pencil skirts remains a key skirt shape but the leather gives it a new 50's bad girl feel and have worn it with animal print slipper shoes as another modern take on the 50's the turquoise knit complements the green leather and also breaks up the look of you are choosing to wear more than one leather piece
