Cheap chic goes down a storm...
IT has forever been the TV presenter’s dilemma – picking a fresh on-screen outfit every day.
But one weather forecaster took up the challenge of dressing to impress for only £1.50 per wardrobe change.
STV weather expert Laura Piper marked her 100th broadcast by revealing the way she has been saving the planet – by wearing only second-hand clothes. The style-savvy TV presenter has been rooting around for outfits that cost as little as £1.50.
She now hopes fronting the channel’s weather bulletin in her sustainable chic will encourage colleagues to turn to recycled clothing.
She tweeted: ‘Wow! Can’t believe it but this month I marked my 100th weather shift of the year – and I’m happy to say that everything I’ve worn on camera has either been from a local Scottish charity shop or from the amazing Big Pick shops which divert clothing destined for landfill.’ Newly engaged Miss Piper, 34, said: ‘People have been supportive. I’m hoping to persuade more colleagues on air to have a go and see if I can do this on a wider scale.’
