Wore what? Coat, £25, bag, £10, both Primark; top, £20, DV8; jeans, £20, boots, £20, both New Look.

Why? I am usually dressed very casually because I play a lot of sport but I love a nice coat. I think that a coat can really make an outfit.

Who? I think Meghan Markle is great, I take inspiration from her — she always wears great coats.

Wore what? Coat, £150, Jigsaw; bag, £80, Longchamp; shoes, previously my mum’s, Chanel; dress, £45, Warehouse.

Why? I like to be dressy and tend to favour black clothes. I think that black is simple but timeless.

Who? If I had to pick a fashion icon, I would have to say Olivia Palermo. Her style is quite edgy but she manages to pull it off so well.

Wore what? Jacket, £60, bag, £20, jeans, £30, all Marks & Spencer; shoes, £25, River Island; top, £10, Hollister.

Why? I like to be dressy and casual, to make an impression yet also be comfy.

Who? I really like Taylor Swift because she switches it up so often. Every time she brings out a new album her hair and style changes and I think it is great.

Why? I would say that I have a classic style. It also depends on the season, but I like clean lines and follow the trends on Instagram.

Who? I love the We Are Twinset bloggers on Instagram. They take every day basic items that you would have in your wardrobe or ones that you would walk past in a shop and give them a stylish twist.
