Introducing our new presenter stylist, Charlotte Bateson-Hill

Hello, I’m Charlotte, the new talent stylist. And whilst I’m an old hand at QVC, having worked here for over 12 years, this is new territory for me, stepping into the role left vacant by the uber chic and ever-so-talented Stine Wintlev.

Whilst finishing off a glorious year of maternity leave, Stine and I have been working remotely (her from Denmark… jealous much, me from my parents house while they look after baby Monty downstairs) to hand over the fantastic fashion reins, and I am raring to go and get to grips with what the presenters and QVC fashion has been up to while I’ve been off.

Until my time away, I managed the team of fashion stylists who work so super hard to bring you all our live fashion hours. As I said before, I started at QVC many moons ago as a fashion assistant and have slowly but surely climbed the ranks, growing and learning everything there is to know about everyone’s favourite shopping channel. So hopefully the presenters will feel they are in good hands.

While I’ve been away, we’ve started selling amazing new brands such as Julien Macdonald, Finery and Badgley Mishka so I thought I would start to acclimatise myself to diving into some of our freshest fashion with a particular focus today on summer trousers.

As I write this, the sun is gloriously shining outside but let’s be honest, these hazy days can be few and far between so a summer trouser is definitely a wardrobe essential for us brits (sob) But don’t despair, the selection below will still keep you with a seasonal spring in your step.

Opt for a fresh pastel shade like these (very lux-like) tracksuit bottoms from Finery. The additional perk of a stretchy waistband will keep you happy all BBQ season long.

Don’t feel you have to pack the leather looks away during the warmer months. Switch up your classic black for navy. You’ll still be looking as sophisticated as ever but giving a nod to this more relaxed time of year.

Finally, nothing says summer quite like a safari-esque zebra print. This pair is from the fashion maestro himself Julien Macdonald. Mix up your monochromes and clash them with a striped T-shirt, as shown here.

Thanks for reading my first blog post. For a more frequent fashion fix, follow me @stylistqvc for all the latest on what the presenters are wearing.
