Six Stylish Scots
Six women from around Scotland share their top fashion tips.
are a great piece for me – casual and so comfy, which I’m all about when it comes to clothing. I wear them with a casual top, usually a white top as you really can’t go wrong with monochrome. I also love throwing on a leather jacket, I seem to be wearing my leather jacket with everything at the moment as it just makes everything that wee bit cooler.
I also love my mini kilt paired with a black sweater and again, my leather jacket.
It’s ideal for keeping me toasty in the winter. An accessory always goes a long way so I’ll brighten it up with a necklace, then just pair it with my comfy flat boots. I feel cosy, comfortable and ready for winter in an outfit like that.
My style is probably not that stylish to be honest.
I’m all about being practical, being comfy and in my job I need to be ready to go. One day I could be out picking berries and the next day I could be finding what the key fashion trends are for this season. I’ve got to be ready for all different activities. I’m quite tall so I’ll usually opt for flat shoes.
I love a deal, most of my pieces are bargains because I like to keep things a budget.
I don’t like to spend hundreds on one piece because I like having a variety of options.
I think the biggest splurge item I’ve ever purchased is when I bought a sequinned gold strapless dress for when I was going to Miss World.
I thought that was an occasion where I was able to justify a few hundred pounds and it made me feel amazing. I got it from Wish Boutique in Glasgow and I am totally in love with it.
I tend to be quite good in the sense that if I buy something and don’t like it – I’ll take it back because I don’t have enough wardrobe space for lots of regrets.
However, I do have a leopard print dress that is too tight across the thighs and will probably never work. But I did that thing where I thought, ‘If I lose a few pounds I’ll squeeze into it.’ But it’s been hanging there for a while! I have so many fashion faux pas, as I said, my style is not particularly stylish. I constantly look back at pictures of myself and think ‘What was I doing?’
I think when you’re on television you’ve got to dress in things that make you feel confident as confidence is key.
In terms of clothes, I’m not given too many pointers by my work, mainly just to wear something that makes me feel good.
The outfits I feel best in are my evening dresses.
I am a horrible person to shop for – I’m tall and I’m curvy. But I’m lucky with my shape, although it is a nightmare to shop for. I just love an evening gown – something that is meant to be worn to make you feel fabulous. If I could live everyday in an evening gown, I would.
In terms of fashion related accidents on screen – nothing too dramatic has happened yet, touch wood.
But I have worn a dress which I thought was fine and day to day it is, but because of the studio lights it became a little see through. You could definitely see my bra. But I learned from my mistake!
