Warehouse ‘Style me if you can’ challenge

In the days when we constantly hear about the influence of street fashion, and the idea that ‘real woman’ offer a style alternative to both the catwalk and glossy magazines, it is great to see one High Street Retailer putting its money where its mouth is. Step forward fab brand Warehouse, who have decided that their upcoming A/W 13 collection will be styled be one of their customers through a very special competition entitled ‘Style me if you can’.

The premise is very simple. Model Alex (seen above), has a busy and exciting life that takes in all manner of adventures in the course of a day. From trips to the cinema to cocktails with her friends, to a simple walk in the park, Alex is doing something new every 90 minutes. Your task is to choose the perfect outfit for a particular occasion. You are, of course making your selections from pieces from the new Warehouse collections, choosing everything from outerwear and coats, to the oh so important finishing touches, the accessories.

You can have a lot of fun planning as many outfits as you like, and of course, the prize you could win is just amazing. You could win the chance to bring your styling to life on a very exclusive Warehouse shoot, as well as an amazing trip of a lifetime to New York, Paris or Milan for yourself and a friend or loved one.

This competition is amazing – but be quick, it ends at 23.59 on Thursday 20th June. Click here to get your entry in.
