Style & Then Some


What is Style & Then Some all about?

Essentially, it’s a fashion blog. An outlet for all the stylish outpourings of a team of six writers. If it’s aesthetically pleasing and/or interesting to us you’ll find it in the Style category. But even we can’t exist on a diet of fashion alone, so we’re casting our nets wider to fill the And Then Some category with news, opinions, food, films and things to do in London and beyond (that’s where most of us live). Get it? It’s style…and then some.

Who are we?

We are Helen, Katie, Sophie, Jo and Katy five twenty-something girls, united by a love of fashion and writing, and a distaste for fashion clichés and ‘churnalism’. With several years fashion blogging experience between us, and a good few seasons at London Fashion Week under our belts, we joined forces in 2011 to form a style-savvy blogging team.

Helen | Writer

Helen Coakley considers herself a fledgling in the fashion scene, trying to make her dent in the industry by working in trend forecasting by day and pouring her thoughts into written form at night.  Having lived and loved the North, she currently resides back where she grew up, in the heart of Essex, and works in central London. Oh, and she LOVES Louis Theroux.

Sophie | Writer

By her own admission, Sophie is a geek through and through. To avoid people thinking she’s too much of a boy, she insists on never wearing trousers.

Joanna | Writer

Joanna has worked at numerous fashion head offices both in London and abroad and loves all things fashion and beauty, boring anyone who’ll listen about a new skincare find.  Starting out as a buyer has made her handy with a spreadsheet and knowledgeable about import logistics, however has now crossed over into editorial to pursue her love of writing.

Katy | Writer

Based in Aberdeen, Katy joined the S&TS team after she attended the same London College of Fashion journalism short course as Katie and Jo. Originally a fashion design graduate, Katy interned at Richard Nicholl’s design studio before deciding that she preferred writing about clothes to making them.

Olivia | Writer

A recent graduate, Olivia hails from the Midlands but has her sights firmly set on the bright lights of London. Her spare time is spent scrapbooking from fashion magazines for style inspiration, making ill-advised haircut choices and buying shoes she’s too afraid to wear.
