Splash TV presenter Claire Greeves lets us in on the stylish secrets of her life...

Fashion blogger and presenter of Splash TV Claire Greeves prides herself on mish-mash style and her love for local UAE designers. Ahlan! chat to her about her love for fashion and the unique pieces you’ll find in her wardrobe.

How would you describe your style?
An eclectic mix. I love to combine pieces from designers that aren’t so well known with high street items and vintage finds. I also dress for my mood.

Who is your style icon?
Zooey Deschanel in New Girl

Which celebrity do you think always dresses well?
Katy Perry. I want to be her!

Which celebrity do you think dresses badly?
The celebrities that get it wrong are the ones that let their stylists dictate what they must wear.

Who is your favourite designer?
I really believe in local designers and my favourite is Corquette. Internationally I love House of Holland.

What is your favourite high street store?
Splash of course! You can get everything in there and the products look high-end despite the fact they are super cheap.

What is your favourite online fashion store? It’s great for all local designers and they even deliver the day you order.

What are you favourite trends for this season?
Bold prints. Particularly Aztec, although I can’t really get away with wearing them myself!

What’s the best piece of fashion advice you’ve ever been given?
It was given to me by Tyra Banks. She said “don’t be too matchy-matchy.” Since that I’ve never been afraid to experiment. We all make mistakes sometimes!

What are the items you are currently lusting after?
Chanel shoes!
