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!

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

scarf by pret a portobello

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 


  1. The coat and the scarf are sick. I'm loving the camo trend!

  2. Omgosh I love the parka! Who doesn't need a bit of camo and I'm all for channelling a bit of the 90s in my look x

  3. Just in case I'm lucky my email is hannahboyo @ hotmail.com xxxx

  4. Love the coat from the first look, where is it from? hope to win!

  5. I have a really similar scarf minus the fluro yellow, your's is so decent, where is it from? P.S I really want to win that parka coat!

  8. I love this coat, it is surprising how difficult it is to find a coat that I like that actually has a hood, so this is fab!

  9. great coat perfect for meeting Bear Grylls in the woods lol


  10. This is great! I love a coat with a hood because I'm usually walking places and getting caught in the rain. Nice to have one that's got style!
