‘A Smart-Casual Look’

This is my go-to office outfit. It’s easy but never boring. I really like teaming casual pieces like jeans with something more formal like a tailored shirt – I love stealing from the men’s section, too! My footwear has to be practical and comfortable – which explains why my Gucci loafers get a lot of wear. To relax the look of the shirt, I open the cuffs and roll up the sleeves. Put a sweater around your shoulders and you’re good to go.

‘A City-Break Look’

Comfort is key for travelling – both on the plane and when I reach my destination. I really think about what I’m packing and try to be smart and not bring too much. Typically, I gravitate towards easy, chic pieces then throw a couple of statement pieces in that I know can be worn with several different looks. This outfit is one I always come back to – it’s a combination of natural tones like white, light grey and brown, and always looks totally effortless.

‘A Seasonal Colour Look’

I’m not that into colour but I’ve recently been incorporating a pop of something to elevate my go-to combinations. This is a variation on my first look – only with white cropped, raw-hem jeans and a colourful shirt. It feels modern without being too trendy. If I do go for a fun colour, I always mix it with neutrals to ensure the look feels wearable. A simple flat is all you need here – for me it’s my Hermès Oran sandals every time.

‘A Beachside Look’

When I’m spending time at the beach or on a boat, I love wearing light billowy cotton. Not only does it make tanned skin glow, but it’s also chic and lightweight in your luggage. This Jacquemus dress ticks all the boxes – styled with minimal accessories it works well in the day, and transitions well into the evening with a glitzy bag.

‘An ‘Island Chic’ Look’

My go-to holiday formula is always a light cotton oversized shirt – either plain white or blue and white stripes – and a colourful sarong. It works as a cover-up and looks smart when you stop by a terrace for drinks later. Add brown leather Greek sandals, raffia details and some dainty gold jewellery to finish.
