The ac­claimed de­signer and en­tre­pre­neur on how she keeps her work­ing wardrobe bright and in­spir­ing

KEEP PRINT TO ONE PIECE

I usu­ally go for a pat­terned shirt: that way, you can go quite crazy on the print, par­tic­u­larly if you opt for a block-coloured skirt or trousers.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO CLASH

Pick­ing a colour from your print and co­or­di­nat­ing your ac­ces­sories does look gor­geous, but a clash­ing shade can be great, too. I love our leop­ard blouse, with a neon-pink trim.

KEEP YOUR OP­TIONS OPEN

With these J Brand trousers (pic­tured above), I or­dered 10 dif­fer­ent sizes and styles on­line, then I kept the pair I loved most. I’d rather try clothes on at home, panic-free.

EM­BRACE AN­I­MAL PRINT

It’s ev­ery­where right now. For work, I tend to wear it on my feet only. I just bought a gor­geous pair of Tabitha Sim­mons boots, and they’re a great en­try point into leop­ard.

THINK DAY TO NIGHT

Some­times I’ll do boyfriend jeans with a heel, but mostly, a printed silk shirt and cu­lottes are my go-to work look. I went straight out to a cock­tail party in this.
