Why? I like simple style. I think it looks much more elegant. I prefer neutral colours over anything too bold.

Wore what? Top, £14, Gap; scarf, gift; trousers, £20, bag, £30, both Next; shoes, £15, Marks and Spencer.

Why? If I had to describe my style in one word, it would have to be casual. I always wear stripes. I think they are eye-catching without being too much.

Why? I would describe my style as feminine and vibrant. I love anything effortless, and if it’s got a floral print it’s even better.
