Please describe your style in three words.

Sporty, comfy, fun.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Not turning the light on! Ha. And over-thinking, I always cover the floor in all my clothes, then leave in the first thing I put on.

Do you believe in role models?

Yes, you can get inspired by all kinds of people. That’s what Pinterest is for right? I also love looking at what people on Instagram are wearing.

What are your favourite fabrics?

Cashmere jumpers for being so snuggly, plus they also pack up so small for festivals. Other fabrics that I love are merino wool and silk (in shirts and nighties).

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

I’m not sure if a leather suit works…

Which city has the best-dressed women?

London! Because there’s so many different looks going on here. Stockholm’s pretty good for style spying too, they’ve definitely got the normcore look down in a very cool way.

Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

I used to be more out there, but now I prefer the slightly more casual underdressed look, although it depends on what mood I’m in. So I am conservative I suppose. I appreciate something really well-cut that goes with everything or an amazing pair of neutral trainers. Having said that, you can’t beat adding an unexpected piece to peacock in!

What are the rules in the way you dress?

It normally starts with something high waisted, but it depends. I can wear a camouflage tracksuit all day or be in a pair of tailored trousers and heels. I love modern minimalist cuts, mixing smart tailoring with streetwear, finding amazing things in vintage shops, men’s jackets and weird dainty jewellery.

Celebrities and style...

Are beasts that feed each other! Their relationship can also be a myth. I get more inspired by strangers on the street or on Instagram than by looking at the style selections of big names.

Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

Trainers.

A woman should always look like…

She’s happy! I think you can get away with anything with the right attitude. I ended up at The Box in a pair of Nike sliders once… c’est la vie!

Who taught you what you know about style?

Probably my mum. She let me wear my Disney princess outfits to school and then would pick me up in ripped jeans and I’d to beg her to wait in the car! I didn’t appreciate her style then, obviously.

How do you select your clothing every morning?

I think about who I’m seeing and if they haven’t seen the outfit I wore yesterday, I’ll probably wear that because I do like sleep.

What is your biggest regret?

Style-wise probably a white pair of boots that my boyfriend at the time had painted graffiti on (I know!). But they apparently were cool then. Also, I once made all my friends wear different coloured ‘spice rack’ themed dresses to go see the Spice Girls in.

The three essential things a woman should know about style are…

Dress for your body shape, do not just follow trends, and have fun!

Do you have any shopping rituals?

I quite hate shopping in real life, but do love perving on clothes online. A lot.

We will never see you wearing…

A tiny dress and massive heels. Although it might look great on some women, in the words of Skepta: ‘that’s not me!’

Which new designers do you follow and why?

I really like Georgia Hardinge for evening wear; I think her stuff is so modern and feminine. Filling pieces is an interesting concept trainer brand, Persephoni do some interesting bags and Daisy Knight and Dominic Jones are the ones for awesome jewellery.

Who is the most stylish person you have ever seen?

Oh, it’s too hard to say.

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Her perfume.

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

Great fitting high waisted jeans, my grandma's jewellery and some vintage jackets my dad gave me.

The one image that defined your approach to style…

I think it’s something that is constantly changing.

Which fashion house never fails to impress you?

Moschino.

One article of clothing that a woman needs to pay close attention to is…

Her underwear.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

No! They are best friends.

Who would you like to recommend for My Style?

I really enjoy the dress sense of stylist Soki Mak.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

Pressure is a privilege.
