Wore what? Dress, £7, Topshop; coat, £75, ASOS; boots, £45, Office; bag, £15, Accessorize.

Wore what? Top, £6, bag, £10, both Primark; coat, £50, Next; jeans, £25, River Island; shoes, £70, Dr Martens.

Why? I’m a fashion student, so I prefer to have an interesting and edgy look. I’m not a ‘plain Jane’ at all.

Who? I love how Scottish blogger Molly McFarlane can put an outfit together that you’d never think of doing. She has a very unique look.
