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!

Checks.....

The print this season is CHECK but there are 2 ways to go... are you the punk girl or the future girl?  Take your side here and accessorise as you wish but t help you along you can win the latest necklace from Eddie Borgo that I am wearing in the first outfit.  Just leave a comment below or retweet the blog for your can to win! Deadline is Friday 2nd August...Good Luck!











TIP... check shirts dont have to be reminiscent of the 90's why not wear a classic check shirt in a more grown up way by mixing embellished textures against the check and wear a loose shirt like this tucked into a pencil skirt for a modern update that can also be great for the office or a night out and wear with brogues 
shirt and skirt by no.21
shoes by jil sander
sunglasses by topshop
necklace by eddie borgo at shopbop









TIP... strong graphics look great on oversized shapes wear with a pencil skirt to balance the look another good tip is to use a jacket as a top try which works perfectly if they are bigger in shape
jacket by lucy offen
skirt by joseph
trainers by new balance
