What is style to you?

“Style is a rhythm. It’s the way your body re­acts to your clothes and how they in tan­dem cre­ate a har­mony. You have to be com­fort­able in what you wear, but that doesn’t mean that you must wear the most com­fort­able clothes. It takes some time to get com­fort­able in, and get used to, a new style. The plants in your gar­den don’t flower right away and they won’t at all un­less you look af­ter them. The same goes for style.”

You man­age to pull off an el­e­gant look by dress­ing in high­street brands and vin­tage. What ad­vice would you give to some­one who wants to dress right with­out spend­ing a for­tune?

“I cre­ated my blog Le Vrai Win­ston in 2007 in re­sponse to all the ques­tions I used to get about where my clothes were from. Peo­ple were sur­prised that you can find a com­bi­na­tion of vin­tage in­spired clothes in reg­u­lar high-street stores. De­signs and man­u­fac­tur­ing are im­prov­ing day by day and it’s pos­si­ble to find de­cent stuff that fits in cheaper stores, as long as you’re pa­tient.”
