Win a Whole New Wardrobe

Despite my fondness for flats and tendency towards comfortable clothing, I must be doing something fashionably correct, as MoneySupermarket.com have chosen me to judge their 'Passion for Fashion' competition. Hooray!

MoneySupermarket.com are looking for stylish folks to create outfits for less than £200, across three categories - Casual, Holiday and Party. I'm taking the (virtual) swivvle chair behind the 'Casual' category to oversee all things jeans-and-t-shirt, and I'll be choosing my favourite off-duty outfit to win £200. My fellow judges Natasha and Olivia will be pulling out their best Simon Cowell impressions to judge the Holiday and Party categories with two more prizes of £200 up for grabs, and then we're all coming together (like at Bootcamp) to choose an overall winner who's really wowed us with their style prowess. That fashion maven will win £1,000 to spend on a new SS13 wardrobe. Fun!

Want in?
If you want a slice of this deliciously stylish pie, here's how to enter:
  • Write a blog post featuring one casual, one beach/holiday AND one party outfit. Remember, each outfit must cost less than £200 and you must include all three in your post to enter.
  • Include a visual representation of each outfit - you could do what I did and spend an enjoyable few hours browsing the internet under the guise of 'research', then make a collage of images to showcase each outfit. 
  • Include links to the items you've used in each outfit, and write a little something about them - maybe an insight into your inspiration? That's what the designers do, right?
  • Email a link to your entry to 
  • When you're all done, come back here and leave the link to your post in the comments so I can have a look-see and flex my judging muscles. 

The prizes
  • There are three £200 cash prizes for the winners of each individual category, as chosen by me, Natasha and Olivia.
  • There's also one £1,000 cash prize for the overall winner in all three categories - the one person who nailed every look and made us three judges sigh with fashion longing. 
Here are a couple of examples, crafted by my own fair hand:
casual1
Quilted Crop Jacket | Stripe Shift Dress | Woven Cut-Out Shoes | Cross Body Bag

I love pink and orange together - I paired this statement jacket and colour-pop bag with a simple shift dress and comfy flats for a stylish spring look. 

casual2

Slim Boy Fit Jeans | Tuck Stitch Jumper | Half Disc Collar | Pointed Courts

Nothing says casual like baggy boyfriend jeans - wear them with a neon knit, statement necklace and bright heels (not too high, remember!) for off-duty style any supermodel would be proud of. 


Pretty easy, right? Don't forget, each outfit must come in under £200 and you need to email your post to  passionforfashion@moneysupermarket.com and leave a link in these here comments to enter. So go forth, fashionable friends, and create the casual outfit of my dreams...

Good luck!

  4. Good luck to all that enter. I'm not fashion forward, I'm fashion backwards! I'm obsessed with 20s to 50s fashion and nothing else compares in my opinion!

  5. Love this contest! Would be such a great prize to win, I haven't actually bought new clothes for almost a year now because other things in life are so expensive!
