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!

The Jumper.....

TIP...I have worn this slogan knitted jumper with these great leopard print jeans to liven up the look and clash it all up adding the cowboy boots for a slightly rock n roll edge but have fun with print and colour and make sure the jumper is oversized if wearing skinny jeans

boots by all saints

TIP...houndstooth is becoming a big trend for the autumn but have some fun with it and try it with these untraditional colours to make this trend more modern I have worn the jumper with tracksuit shorts and the shoe add the extra sporty twist but keep the outfit looking sexy try shoes in bright colours for those scared of wearing colour!

TIP...the grey marl jumper is something that everyone needs in their wardrobe its great to dress things down but still look cool for day so go crazy with what you wear it with even if its a sequin skirt or leather shorts, I have worn it with these printed trousers as I wanted to add some colour and the contrast of both is exactly how I like to dress the trainers give it that laid back edge

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

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

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

Have been introduced to Timex and although I never wear a watch this one caught my eye as love the old school wooden effect face with the gold frame and strap went out with Jackie Dixon and we shot me wearing it on the streets I am now converted and maybe you can be too so why not have a look  and find the one that suits you too!
