So, a little about me. My name is Holly, I am a 27-year-old fashion stylist based in London. I am currently represented by The Frank Agency and mainly I work with celebrities. I’ve been running my own business for four years now and work out of a rather cute (plant filled) studio that I rent in the East End of London.

I’ve styledLittle Mix, Zoella, Ella Eyre, Joss Stone, Una Healy, Leona Lewis, Kimberly Wyatt, Gabrielle Aplin, Helen George, Laurel, Imani Williams, Dionne Bromfield, Deliciously Ella, Lucy Boynton, Antonia Thomas, Faye Marsay, Letitia Wright, Jessie Buckley, Emily Berrington, Sheridan Smith. I’ve collaborated with, Marie Claire, The Daily Mail, Harpers Bazaar Online, Adidas, Wonderland Magazine, Fault Magazine, Untitled Magazine, 1883 Magazine, NYLON Magazine, Nobody’s Child.


My career highlights thus far include; Working with the Little Mix girls full time for 2 years as their personal stylist, filming the girls first ever no.1 video ‘Black Magic’ was a great day. Styling Winnie Harlow for the cover of Marie Claire Mexico; Working with Joss Stone, as I am personally a huge fan of her music; And getting my client Emily Berrington on the best dressed list of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.

How to wear the trousers stems from two personal trains of thought. 1) My habitual trouser wearing, and 2) learning how to wear the trousers in running my own company. I am an avid fan of the pantaloon, be it high-waisted, tapered, straight-legged, low-rised, tailored or with a cheeky kick-flare (read my post on finding the right trouser style for you’re figure here). They’re comfortable, practical and easy-to-wear, a style that epitomises relaxed professionalism; a strategy that I also try to fuse into my business.


Wear the trousers is a space where I can share my world of styling and the practical fashion tips I’ve picked up along the way.


My stylist diary; This is a weekly insight into my life as a stylist, written in journal format. I also include in this post a style question of the week from one of my readers (please DM me if you’re interested in taking part here), quote of the week, podcast of the week, what I’ve been reading, and try this to de-stress.
Practical Style Tips; How come our mother’s by-passed the teachings of spanx and silicone nipples? I share some practical styling tips that will keep your wardrobe in check.
Runway-to-Reality; My guide to introducing the latest trends and silhouettes into your wardrobe in a way that works with your personal style.
Interviews; I talk to women I admire in the fashion industry to find out how they wear the trousers in their business (and personal) life.

    The brand has been established for 8 years, however July 2015 was a particularly important milestone in our calendar as we brought the first UK store to Leeds. After the success of our launch party we are now looking for well-established bloggers to review our store and garments.
    We’ve chosen you as one of the top 10 fashion bloggers, so we would like to invite you to join us at our exclusive blogger event in late March.

    The evening will consist of sweet treats and refreshments as well as a tour of our new store; as a thank you to anyone who attends and writes a review on their social media/blog page will receive payment in kind, which will be one of our jeans worth up to £150.

    I have not yet set a date for the event, instead I am open to suggestions as of when you are available in the last 2 weeks of March.
