My style is classic with a relaxed edge. Good style means investing in quality clothing, making sure your fit is right and going for classic pieces that can easily mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe. Dress in the way that makes you your most confident, comfortable self.
The five wardrobe items I couldn’t live without? A great white tee, Levi’s 501 blue jeans, white low-top sneakers, a hardworking cashmere sweater and sunglasses.
Invest in quality garments that are well made and will never go out of style. I have an amazing suede jacket from Vince that was a lot of money, but I wear it all the time. My Common Projects are expensive for a simple white sneaker but, again, I wear them nearly every day. If you want to explore a particular trend, shop second hand, so if you happen to give up on it you aren’t contributing to the fast fashion cycle.
I am currently saving up for a piece from Bode. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind garment composed entirely of antique textiles. I love Bode’s modern workwear silhouettes and am honestly not sure if I want a shirt, a pair of pants, or one of its famous jackets. I just know one of them is going to be my next big purchase and I am really excited to get my hands on a handmade piece that tells a story. I also recently bought some black Issey Miyake Homme Plissé pleated trousers.
Most days I wear a t-shirt and jeans. Then I layer with a cool short-sleeve shirt. Then I choose my shoes depending on where I am going for the day. This may be embarrassing to admit but I recently just got a pair of Birkenstock Bostons and rarely take them off.
I can never see myself wearing bright colours. I have always gravitated towards more neutral and earth tones – the idea of putting something super bright on that would attract attention makes me feel really uncomfortable. I feel the best when I wear clothes that have a neutral colour palette, so while I love seeing neon and bright colours on others, they will never work for me.
If I could only wear one brand, I’d pick Sunspel. I love its range of classic wardrobe staples, own a lot of pieces and can attest to the amazing quality. The pieces always fit well and I just love the designs and color choices.
