When Chloe’s not doing her day job as a fashion PR she’s out and about at the UAE’s most stylish events. Her blog The Girl who Lives in the Desert is an expat’s go-to site for style secrets and tips. Being in front of the camera all the time calls for Chloe’s own style to be impeccable, and she let team Ahlan! into her wardrobe to find out just how she does it!

Describe your style 
Boho in black! I love really soft flowing shapes, but I like to toughen it up with accessories – a classic biker jacket or boots and studs are always somewhere in my look. I like to add a little edge, rather than being totally polished.

And which celebrity’s style hurts your eyes?
I’m not naming any names but most of the girls from one of the UK’s biggest reality shows.

Who are your style icon?
The Olsen sisters and models Kate Moss and Cate Underwood. 

Favourite designer? 
There’s too many to name but Alexander Wang, Balmain and Isabel Marant are my top three.

Favourite high-street store?
Topshop and Zara 

And what’s your favourite online store?
www.boutique1.com

Which items are currently on your ‘to buy’ list?
I want the Parental Advisory Explicit Content jumper from Alexander Wang’s Spring/Summer 2014 show, and the Chanel perfume bottle bag. I would cherish it forever!

Top trends for next season? 
I’m not the biggest trend dresser but I’m quite into the ‘Wanderlust’ look – a glamorous traveller with lots of accessories. 

And what’s the best piece of fashion advice you’ve ever been given?
Know your body and dress for your body shape – there’s no need to feel you have to follow a trend.
