My title is:

Head of Styling at Monki HQ in Gothenburg.

My personal style in three words:

Relaxed, lo-fi and boyish, which is why I LOVE the Monki oversized white shirt and will be wearing it under a navy blue suit with my hi-top vans this winter. I also can’t resist buying dungarees…ever.

Why fake fur is so exciting this season?

It was seen all over the catwalk for AW14. Wrapping up in a cosy fake fur coat is AW14’s instant cool hit.

Top Tip Alert! The fake fur trend is set to continue into SS15, which means that pieces like the Monki fake fur bomber (as seen on me!) will still feel spot-on trend as spring hits. Consider it a savvy investment buy!

My three best tips for how to wear fake fur and feel fabulous:

Throw a fake fur jacket over simple jeans and t-shirt to achieve the ultimate in daytime cool. Easy!

The catwalks were full of fake fur in a spectrum of colours and prints. Our cammo patterned fake fur jacket in blue and grey is right on trend. It’s bold, fun and confident – everything we love at Monki!

A fake fur jacket is the perfect partner to your party dress, keeping you cosy against the winter chill and adding instant glam-factor.
