I love leather pieces – they are a great investment and give an outfit edge. 

My biggest consideration is comfort and cut. Everything has to fit well, not twist out of shape, untuck or crease.

My wardrobe is based on neutral colours of varying textures so I don’t look too matchy-matchy. For an instant update I’ll add a pop of colour – this season it has to be red.

Khaki is a real wardrobe unlocker as it gives my classic pieces a contemporary twist.

I always team navy trousers with either a neutral-coloured Gianvito Rossi heel or,

for a dressed-down feel, white trainers.

Layering is key to creating a versatile wardrobe. One of Me+Em’s bestsellers is a jersey top with a collar and cuffs which, when worn underneath something, gives the smoothest of lines.

The perfect gold drop earrings are all I need to take my outfit from office to evening.
