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 Summer Boots......

This week I am showing you two ways to wear my perfect summer boots plus you have a chance to win them in a size 7!  Leave a comment below or retweet the blog to enter, deadline Friday 3rd May...good luck!

TIP... I have given the boots a masculine twist with a boxy red coat over a leather dungarees dress keep bare legs with this outfit as heavy leather looks good with skin to break it up

dress by alexis barrell
t-shirt by current elliott
boots by office

TIP... loose jeans rolled up the hem is one of my favourite ways to wear these boots slightly boyish but worn with a floral printed sweatshirt gives this outfit a fresh summer look

TIP... seen as the next big print for aw13 get involved with pinstripe but keep a shirt and blazer relaxed with loose pants and simple trainers

mens pyjama trousers by gap
trainers by vans for kenzo
sunglasses by the row

TIP... add a crisp shirt buttoned up under a 50's inspired dress to make this feminine outfit sharper and again dress down with trainers play with colours for anyone trying to make a statement that also looks great against black

TIP... white and denim are great neutral basics that work perfectly together and accessorise with tones or the same colour for a modern update

TIP... the skirt suit is such a great summer look especially if you wear a mini and add trainers to make this look edgier and less formal plus play with print again like a heavy block stripe

TIP... a classic red looks great as denim and to give this a modern sporty edge the minimal bomber jacket is simply styled with it to keep the look clean again the trainers and cap give this a street twist
