Didn’t see that one coming

If there's one thing we know about Made in Chelsea's Rosie Fortescue, it's that her style is always on point (if you don't believe us, check out our Fashion Week video interview here).

She's got that timeless chic thing down to a T, but she's also not afraid to take risks either. So what's the secret? To launch her new jewellery collection, Rosie exclusively reveals the fashion rules she swears by.

  1. Always dress for yourself and not to gain attention from anyone else (men especially!)
  2. Learn what suits your body and stick to your guns as that's how you will be most confident.
  3. Never wear high heels that you can't walk in.
  4. If in doubt wear nipple covers (there's nothing worse than being caught in cold weather!)
  5. ALWAYS complete every outfit with jewellery.
  6. Have fun with your outfits and experiment within your comfort zone.
  7. Mix and match your metals when wearing jewellery. I love playing around with my new Single Band Rings and stacking the different metals in different ways. I tend to wear gold and rose gold more in the day and black rhodium is great for a night out. A watch is a great way to jazz up your stacked bracelets, why not grab one from our Black Friday watches edit?
  8. Accessorise with a pop of colour when wearing a monochrome outfit.
  9. My Heartbeat Hand Cuffs are the perfect statement piece from day to night so the ideal piece to wear from work to drinks.
  10. Wear eye-catching earrings with your hair tied back. My Heartbeat Earrings are sure to get attention!

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
