DIY Messy Braid Updo
Recreate the look with Amy's messy braid updo tutorial:
How would you describe your style?
I would describe my style as feminine with an edge. I love to match something floral with ripped jeans and a leather jacket. I grew up in the 90s so I love the grunge look and I am so happy that flannels and ripped jeans are back!
What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?
Probably a cape that I found in my grandmother's closet after she passed. It is plaid and so adorable and every time I put it on, it still smells like her.
Who are your style icons?
Emmanuelle Alt, the French Vogue Editor and Chief. She is so parisian chic and all of her looks are simple and classic.
Do you have any favourite designers?
I love Isabel Marant (also very parisian chic) but her close are expensive so I was so happy when she did a line for H&M.
Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?
Since I have a toddler, I buy everything online. I love Shopbop, Zara, Piperlime, Anthropologie and Madewell.
Do you make or customise your outfits?
No I wish but I do love my taylor. I think everyone needs a good taylor!
Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?
I love mixing patterns, such as leopard with plaid or florals with stripes.
