autumn style: knee boots and a shift dress

Having worn my current knee-high boots for five autumn and winter seasons, it’s time to look for a new pair. That got me thinking about what to pair with a great pair of boots, and the ultimate for autumn (or fall if you’re in the Americas) is a neutral toned shift dress with bright lipstick and a universally versatile geometric silk scarf.

summer style: wear bold stripes with accessories

Wondering how to wear monochrome stripes with accessories? Styling a statement necklace in a bold colour can make your outfit pop. Just add black accessories with one accent colour theme running through the rest. Don’t amp up the makeup, just let the clothes speak.

summer style: wear white to wimbledon

Wimbledon is the event of the summer for tennis aficionados. Whites are de rigeur for the players here, and it’s pretty fashion forward to wear white as an onlooker too. Here’s an outfit that keeps you looking casual and chic with a jacket just in case it rains (it is England, after all).

summer style: black tie dinner or formal event

When you’re invited to a formal event, be it a black tie dinner or a corporate event, it’s easy to just wear a little black dress. But when the little black dress is this delicate, feminine and unique, that’s a guarantee you’ll make an impact and be memorable as the most elegant lady in the room. Paired with a stunning statement pendant and gold accessories, it’s a knockout outfit.

summer style: navy blue for ladies day at ascot races

Ladies Day at Ascot is a day for extravagant hats and formal dress. Taking inspiration from the blue skies we hope to be blessed with on the day, here’s an outfit idea for that most special of outings. This could also be worn to a wedding as a guest or even by the mother of the bride (or groom).

summer style: wear boho denim to glastonbury music festival

Glastonbury, the ever popular five-day festival of contemporary performing arts that takes place near Pilton, Somerset, has been an annual pilgrimage for music-lovers since its inception in the 1970s. These days it’s the millennials who are attending, but style is always at the forefront. Here’s an outfit that hopes for sun, but prepares for rain, and celebrates the bohemian roots of the famous festival with denim and folk embroidery.

spring style: camel coat for a casual look

A camel coat seems to be the item that everyone wants this season, and styling them with casual jeans and a pristine white shirt can be both classic and boring. Amp up the style with a colourful statement necklace and pair with camel bag and shoes to keep the casual vibe going.

spring style: pastels and print

The weather is pretty depressing in London, but let’s take a moment and think about Spring. You’ll definitely make an impression in this chevron skirt, paired with a pale blouse to tone down the pattern. Adding pale blue accessories and nude pumps accentuates the pastel blouse without losing the impact of the bold skirt.

effortlessly stylish: t— wears his bespoke green paisley silk scarf

T— is from India, and he’s a dapper gent. He’s sent me this photograph wearing the green scarf I made him, as a casual alternative to a tie. Paired with a classic corduroy shirt and tweed jacket, he’s definitely effortlessly stylish.

S— is a good friend and also occasionally models for me, as you might have seen in my online shop and on instagram. She loves her satin fish scarf, and has styled it casually in this photograph, taken when out for a coffee with friends. I do love it when clients send me photographs.
