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!

Always on the look out for interesting styling ideas my recent trip to Tokyo gave me just that.  We came across a shop selling chef's aprons, tops and anything else related to their uniform but I was so inspired I thought that this style of clothing could be great for everyday use.  So below are the pieces I bought to show you how thinking outside the box can be extremely fashionable!

TIP...the iconic chef's jacket is even better in grey and I have worn a long sleeve t-shirt underneath to give this a more relaxed feel to the top that looks best done up so the t-shirt softens the look.  I also added a skirt in white to match the piping of the jacket and the shoes in stripes adds a simple bold print, don't wear this look with fussy print, bold and simple is key

TIP... who would have thought an apron would be so cool, in orange gingham again the print is bold and simple and I have styled it with a top and skirt so the apron acts as a print over the top of a simple and plain outfit
