Wore what? Jumpsuit, £35, Quiz; shoes, £8, Primark; bag, gift, Celine.

Why? I like mixing designer brands and high street fashion. Other than that, I don’t really have a set style — if I see something and like it enough, I’ll buy it.

Who? Jennifer Lopez’s style complements her figure so well. I love how her look is so different, whether it’s a glam or street look.
