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 Rucksack…..

This summer if you get any bag it has to be a rucksack!  The trend has been inspired by the must have Chanel backpack seen at the ss14 shows.  The one below is a favourite of mine and this week you can WIN the one am using in the pictures below just retweet the blog or leave a comment, deadline Saturday 22nd March…good luck!

TIP… black, white and blue they are my colours of the season the leather give this a more sporty but grown up feel less grungy than the typical styles and the white gives the outfit a fresh look look for padded details like seen on this one as it adds texture and tone
