How do you balance new trends with a more timeless look?
My style is quite classic so I love jeans and blazers, Breton tops and cashmere knits. I will always buy the on-trend version so for me, some high waist mum style jeans and a boxy blazer are on my wish list.
Bags are also a great way to embrace a trend. I’ve just bought a red one, which adds a great splash of colour to pretty much all outfits, and is the colour of this season
