Fashion, Style



There’s nothing like a buttery leather to make a look pop. I had to give the virtually impossible answer to the team at Elle Magazine: ‘How would you describe your style?’.

As a fashion lover since I can remember I am guilty of embracing a lot of trends as I find most things exciting, get obsessed then get bored very easily. After working in the industry for a few years now wardrobe space is tight so I only make room for things I truly love and know will wear (of course I leave a pocket of space for a wild card every now and then, it’s the Carrie Bradshaw within).

I described my personal style as dressy casual (#dressycaj) which is timeless, quality and understated with a few on trend pieces that pop. It’s the notion of generally having a simple wardrobe consisting of classics, which I do love to talk about, and then throwing in some sunshine whether it be a special designer bag, a piece of jewellery or in this case a flash of colour.

I think my look here sums it up, can you see how buttery the lovely Bimba y Lola skirt looks? YUM. The striped jumper or pullover is from new designers Trager Delaney, whom I had the pleasure of graduating with at Central Saint Martins #fashionfriends. With their brand motto of innovative and functional luxury, combined with their skills in knitwear and design they are certainly a design team to keep an eye out for over coming seasons. The shoes here are a true favourite by Grenson and their comfy too. From city slicker to fashionista, everyone needs a pair of black brogues in their wardrobe. See all outfit details below, and make sure you pick up your copy of Elle UK Magazine this month.
