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.
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.
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.
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.
