#worklife? it goes a bit like this…

WELCOME TO GLAMOUR’S WORK & MONEY SPECIAL! And the career chat starts right here, where I’ve decided to try to answer a question I’m asked a lot: what does a typical day look like for a magazine editor? Not sure I have many ‘typical’ days – lucky me – but I’ve documented a day: 6.30am Wake up, try to fire up, get up and get in the shower – all while wondering what the hell to wear. Today it’s a pair of flocked, floral trousers (#clothes my husband hates) because they don’t need ironing, and a long white shirt. Plus flat shoes. Always flats. I like to walk everywhere at a cracking pace. 6.50am Either eat breakfast – probably Oatibix and milk (who are these people who have time to mash avo…

@glamouruk It was only right that Insta-powerhouse @emrata cover our special August Instagram Issue She looks D.I.V.I.N.E, doesn’t she?! Lessons in self-love Thank you, Jo, for your Editor’s Letter on self-belief. I recently broke up with my boyfriend after he cheated, and have been struggling with low self-esteem.

rock on, tommy

Every fashionable thing you need to know now Agreat American success story: Tommy Hilfiger’s first foray into fashion was when he opened a store in 1969 with money he made from his job at a petrol station. In 1985, he started his brand with a label that somehow simultaneously became synonymous with preppy dressing but was also embraced by shiny pop princesses (hi, Britney!) and hip-hop royalty (yo, Snoop!). He was one of the early adopters of turning celebrity offspring into famous faces – Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart and even (whisper it) Donald Trump have all had children who’ve appeared in Tommy campaigns. Then, 31 years after launch, Gigi Hadid came on board, showing his innate sense of what ‘the kids’ are into. This, along with those iconic logos…

what does your work bag say about you?

Does anyone even remember what a black briefcase looked like? Yes, as our working patterns have become less traditional, so too have our working wardrobes. Personality is now as important as professionalism in the workplace, and nowhere is yours more evident than in your choice of work bag. It’s the centrepiece of your entire work aesthetic (you use it every day, don’t you?), so it makes sense that we agonise over shopping for a new one. According to Lyst, we’ve upped our average spend on them to £397, buying predominantly in December and August (back-to-school mode, anyone?). Here, we ask five women how they found their dream work bag, and how it reflects who they really are… My bag says... “I’m a pulled-together perfectionist” Olivia Palermo, model and editor of oliviapalermo.com “People have told…

how would lucy wear... pvc

I’VE ALWAYS RATHER FANCIED WEARING PVC TROUSERS. However, a couple of hot and bothersome changing room experiences – where I’ve gracelessly struggled to get them past my knees – were enough to see me running for the nearest loose-fit jeans. PVC is punky, sexy and rebellious – and, for me, its allure lies in its potential to transform. At the risk of sounding deeply uncool, I wonder if it could lend me an edge. A little on the history first. In the ’60s, PVC came into favour with designers such as Pierre Cardin and André Courrèges, who recognised its futuristic qualities and fashioned it into coats, minis and knee-high boots. Then, in the ’70s, it was embraced as part of the punk uniform and has since become synonymous with fetish and a…

in praise of work uniforms

Amy Powney, the creative director of London fashion label Mother of Pearl, spends her days creating clothes that can take women from the weekend through the working week. Her own working wardrobe? Until this year, the 32 year old described it as “jeans and a jumper”, confessing that she often steals from her boyfriend’s wardrobe. “I’m really lazy with what I wear. I really liked that thing at school when you didn’t have a choice about what you wore.” Amy has subsequently instigated a uniform at her workspace. From this autumn, she’ll wear a self-designed boilersuit every single day. Though she didn’t intend to make it an office-wide policy, the wider team have embraced the aesthetic, too. “Our style has rubbed off on each other so we’re in sync,” she says.…
