Woman of influence
Zippers, pastels and high-gloss finishes: style is all in the detail
It’s not what you wear but how you style it. Here, the ELLE girl takes three of the season’s big fashion trends and gives each a real-world twist
She was the girl at university who slashed her mini skirts and hacked her tees, all the better for showing off her legs and abs. And though she’s a career woman today, she’s still all about the sass. Only now it’s with a sense of fashion credibility: that means a corset worn over a zippered rollneck (strategically undone), and the newest street-style hit: split-seam trousers.
