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!

Ear Cuffs…..

This week scrape your hair back, add a high collar and show off the latest accessory that is taking over the fashion world….the ear cuff is the coolest statement piece this season and you can WIN the gold one by Maria Black in the first look!  Just retweet the blog or leave a comment below, deadline Friday 29th November…good luck!

TIP… a loose top knot looks with a minimal high collared top and layer over a sweatshirt in black to emphasise the collar, I have worn with leather dungarees and trainers to give this a more relaxed and comfortable look

TIP… opt for a silver cuff for those with a more rock n roll style this looks great against creams and metallics

Inspired by Christopher Kane this winter camouflage has been a big inspiration this season and you can win an amazing winter coat this week by PINKO worn in my second look.  All you have to do is RT the blog or leave a comment below, deadline Friday 15th November….good luck!

TIP… pastels look great with neons and for those who wouldn't wear a printed coat then try try extending this trend through accessories but be adventurous with your colour choices for a modern update

TIP…the parka is reminiscent of the 90's but the camo print gives this an alternative to the traditional colours but in these muted tones this coat would look great against more neutral colours as well as strong brights or denim and look out for faux fur trims that have been key to trends this winter
