#OTLGirl: HANNAH CROSSKEY
Recognised for her classically chic and effortless style, our #OTLGirl of the month is one of the UK’s most renowned influencers and the undeniably cool, Hannah Crosskey.
Hannah creates the perfect juxtaposition between laid back and sophistication by combining hushed tones and exciting cuts – her ‘less is more’ approach proves that simplicity is key and it’s not just about the individual pieces, but how you put them together.
This OTL girl’s style has an androgynous feel to it, which is featured throughout her looks in the form of shirting and tailored pieces allowing her look to exert power and confidence.
From Hannah herself, we talk ‘go to’ looks, wardrobe essentials and how her style has evolved…
What's your first thought when putting a look together? Where do you start?
I usually start with one piece of clothing and build around that. I often plan round my shoes!
What’s the best piece of style advice you’ve ever been given and who gave it to you?
I wouldn't say I've ever been given a piece of advice, I think there's a lot of advice I've given myself. It's all about trial and error, seeing what works well together and having the confidence to wear it well.
How has your style evolved over the years?
I think my style has evolved massively as I've gotten older. I used to put so much time and effort into getting dressed every day, now I literally spend a couple of minutes in the morning and it works out so much better for me, more relaxed and effortless.
What would you consider to be your finest fashion moment?
I couldn't choose one moment. Overall it is just being recognised by my favourite designers and brands for what I do.
What most inspires your style?
I know it's not very original but I like to turn to street style, social media or magazines if I'm getting stuck.
What are your top 3 wardrobe essentials?
Trainers, a good pair of denim and my Celine Caty sunglasses! (I'm never photographed without them!)
What new season trends will you be working into your SS17 wardrobe?
The colour purple was seen everywhere on the catwalk this season. I think I'm going to be taking that colour and wearing it in midi dresses, suiting and accessories!

Finally, what does being an #OTLgirl represent to you?
It's really nice to be able to support new up and coming brands. As an influencer, it's so hard to stand out amongst a saturated industry so if I can help a new brand in any way I am all about being a part of that!
