    Retail expert, glossy magazine columnist, are you ever lost for something to wear?

    Not really, I have a very edited wardrobe and try to buy pieces that interplay with each other. If I haven’t worn something for 2 years, I get rid of it.  I generally stick to a simple colour palette of greys, navy, cream and black with a few pops of colour seasonally.  My current favourite colour is burgundy, it goes with everything!

    What is your top tip to unwind?

    I try to breathe deeply for 20 minutes and it really helps me relax and get the day into perspective.

    What is the best advice you have ever been given?

    Be yourself, everyone else can take it or leave it!
