Meet the team…

Name:  NINA
The Girly Girl
Outfit:  As Stella McCartney’s S/S 09 catwalk collection showed, a boyfriend jacket over a party dress gets a big thumbs up!  The front rows of all the London Fashion Week shows contained a generous handful of this combination too – get the look with a charcoal blazer from Topshop (£55).  Invest in a decent jacket and wear it with everything – from super-girly dresses in sugar shades, to skinny jeans and a band Tshirt, just throw on your tux jacket for instant fashionista status.

Blazer:  Topshop, £55.  Dress:  model’s own, Oasis.  Leggings:  Topshop, £18.  Shoes:  Faith, £65.

Name:  HELEN
The Golden Girl
Outfit:  Acid-wash jeans?  Yes please.  Fringed boots?  We want those too.  And a lumberjack shirt?  Perfect!  This western-inspired outfit incorporates so many key pieces, which come together to create a practical look that is perfect for spring.  Ideal for the evening too, when teamed with sky-scraper moccasins – Topshop have a great pair for £75.  Keep jeans skin-tight and faded, and team with a YEE-HA! attitude! 

Jeans:  Topshop, £40.  Shirt:  New Look, £22.  Vest:  stylist’s own, Zara.  Boots:  Primark, £12.  Hat:  Accessorize, £18.

Name:  ALISSA
The Girl About Town
Outfit:  Forget your LBD and inject some electric blue into your wardrobe – the shops are awash with it at the mo after it proved to be the coolest colour on the catwalk this season – Gucci, DKNY and Michael Kors are all big fans.  With its striking effect against pale skin and bronzing boost to a winter tan, there is no excuse not to invest!  Wear with black leggings – swap cotton for wet-look for an instant day-to-night transition.  Get your hands on Oasis’ one-shouldered number (£50) – the asymmetric design is big news this season, too.

Dress:  New Look, £30.  Leggings:  American Apparel, £22.  Shoes:  asos.com, £50.  Belt:  model’s own, vintage.

Name:  AISHA
The Revolutionary
Outfit:  The Jumpsuit.  Shock horror – this is the iconic 2009 item, and it’s surprisingly wearable!  No more agonizing over what top to wear with what bottoms – team with a blazer for day-wear, or sling one on with a statement waist belt and killer platforms and you’re good to go at night.  Warehouse do a gorgeous waisted blue silk one (£80).

Jumpsuit:  Bay, £40.  Shoes:  New Look, £30.  Leotard:  Bay, £12.  Belt:  model’s own, vintage.
