Holly’s turned to Spanish brand Mango for today’s summery skirt

Whether you’re personally smitten by her style or not, there’s no denying that Holly Willoughby’s This Morning outfits have become as much of a talking point as any of the stories featured on the show itself – and today is no exception.

Following last week’s selection of dreamy high street #hwstyle picks, where we saw a Zara and & Other Stories ensemble and she introduced us to our new favourite dress from Nobody’s Child, we’re glad to see Holly opting for another affordable brand. This time, it’s Mango.

As we edge closer to spring, Holly’s outfit today is a nod to the brighter days to come as she has gone for a baby blue, pleated midi skirt from Mango and a cream light knit jumper from Pure Collection. It’s clear the presenter is a fan of this style of skirt as just last week she opted for a pleated floral number from & Other Stories.

While she stuck to her usual silhouette – an A-line shape, cinched in at the waist – and kept her accessories to a minimum, she’s opted for a slightly different shoe, a heel from high end footwear brand, Emmy London.

With such an affordable high street #ootd, and due to the popularity of the presenter’s outfits, we predict the skirt will sell out fast.

Where is Holly Willoughby’s outfit from and where can I buy it? 

Holly’s look today is entirely from the high street, and the entire outfit will set you back just over £100.

The thin knit cashmere jumper is from Pure Collection and costs just £69. Some sizes are already low in stock, but fear not because we’ve found the perfect alternative.

Her baby blue skirt is from one of our favourite high street brands, Mango, priced at £49.99. With an elasticated waistband and pleated design, it’s the ideal addition to your wardrobe as we ease out of lockdown.

If you fancy a twist on Holly’s original look, the skirt comes as part of a co-ord and you can also buy the matching polo shirt (£35.99, Mango.com).

Owing to the fact this knit is in the sale, it’s out of stock in lots of sizes, so we think this H&M fine knit jumper (£9.99, Hm.com) is a great alternative.

Does Holly Willoughby wear her own clothes on This Morning?

Holly Willoughby has a stylist for This Morning who works with her to compile her wardrobe, rather than wearing her own clothes.

Speaking to Red in 2020, she revealed that putting together an outfit “hasn’t always come naturally” – “for a long time, I was pretty clueless,” she admitted – and while her Instagram feed when she’s not working says otherwise, featuring an array of equally stylish ensembles in our books, this is likely why she looks to the expertise on the professionals on screen.  

Who is Holly Willoughby’s stylist?

Danielle Whiteman became Holly Willoughby’s regular This Morning stylist towards the end of 2020, replacing Angie Smith – Danielle is a previous assistant of Angie’s, who is now based in Sydney and expecting her first child.

Angie is often credited with having engineered Holly’s transformation to national fashion icon in recent years: “Holly was open to new ideas,” she explained during an interview with YOU magazine. “The main thing I wanted to do was get her into more colour – so we tried everything on and went from there. I remember her saying, “I’ve had my kids. I just need to change it up.”

How does Holly Willoughby do her hair? 

Holly Willoughby’s hair stylist is Ciler Peksah, who works with her for This Morning and Dancing on Ice, and seems to have well and truly mastered the ultimate wavy blonde bob. Previous products Ciler has said she’s used on the presenter’s hair for that signature swish include Batiste dry shampoo, T3 curling tongs and Aveda’s damage remedy daily hair repair (£26, Lookfantastic).

Holly is also a Garnier Nutrisse ambassador, and during lockdown shared a clip of herself dying her own hair using the Natural Baby Blonde shade from the range, if you want to achieve the same shade.  

Where is Holly Willoughby from?

Holly Willoughby is originally from Brighton, East Sussex, and attended Burgess Hill Girls school. She now lives in south west London with her husband Dan Baldwin and their three children, Belle, Harry and Chester.
