What are your rules when it comes to fashion?
A: Wear what suits you. This includes body shape, personality and lifestyle. To wear your clothes with confidence, these elements should be seamless. I: Have your own personal style and know what suits your body. Don’t try and replicate too many people’s looks, just rock you.

What piece of style advice have you tried to teach one another?

Do you ever share clothes?
I: Yes, we always share shirts, jumpers, jewellery and shoes. Most recently, I have got into Mum’s old Cheryl Vuillermin pieces from the 90s.
