The stylish residents of Edinburgh were out in force on Saturday but 2 that really stood out for me where Lindsay and Gary, therefore selected by a panel at This is Edinburgh HQ I went off and set about recreating their looks.
Using my knowledge of shops all over the city from my personal shopping skills I loved this part of the process.
With trying to recreate the looks my challenge is to try and incorporate as many of the 4 threads off the Edinburgh style maps as I can from Unique Boutiques,Designer Destinations,High Street Heroes and Old Town Indie chic.
Pick up a style map its great to really explore the city and find some new places you haven’t discovered yet also to plan your shopping day around your own style choices.
Lindsays get the look
Royal Stewart tartan scarf Johnston of Elgin from EWM on Royal mile £50.00 entwined with M&S Limited Collection black and white scarf – £22.50

Black 1969 Legging Jeans from Gap Princes Street – £39.95
Brown NICA Tote Bag from Swish Boutique on Victoria Street – £49.00
Almond Black and White pumps from M&S – £39.50
Lindsay’s actual look is all designer purchased from Harrods so when recreating her look thought it would be great to put a more affordable outfit together. The Scarf was the main challenge in this the original scarf she is wearing is from Zara and I drooled over it last Autumn Winter and a couple of my clients are lucky enough to own it, so for this challenge their was only one destination in my sights the Royal Mile, Tartan scarf heaven in any fabric ,weight and any colour. Located my Scarf from EWM Mill store its a Johnston’s of Elgin scarf at £50 to get the 2 check effect I entwined it with another black and white Scarf that I purchased from trusty old M&S Limited collection scarf at £22.50 and voila Lindsays look recreated.
Garys get the look.
