What’s your work style?
“I don’t stick to one particular style for the office, as different meetings and events have their own loose dress code. Overall, I like to be polished but relaxed at work; dressed in something chic and feeling ‘put together’ but still comfortable enough to dash around. Definitely not corporate!”

What’s your ultimate work outfit?
“My go-to outfit is always styled around a crisp white tailored shirt – it’s fresh, smart, and fashionably classic. I team this with washed black jeans and a pair of edgy shoes, preferably flats. My winter shoe addiction is Gucci fur-lined loafers, and for summer, it’s a leather ballet flat or an on-trend sandal. I never over-accessorise but my outfits are usually completed by a choker or statement earrings.”

What are your top three must-haves?
“A tailored blazer. It’s the only jacket you’ll ever need for important meetings and a garment you can assign to your ‘working wardrobe’ section.
“A slightly oversized white shirt. It’s a little bit ‘90s and the closest I come to a corporate piece of clothing. Invest in top quality and this shirt will be your friend through all career milestones.”
“A statement shoe – that’s as comfortable as possible. It’s true that a certain amount of judging is done on your shoes, especially in this industry.”

What’s your top tip for dressing like a #girlboss?
“Pay serious attention to your grooming. To date, I’ve never met a girl boss with chipped nails and unkempt hair! The little details help create the whole working look, plus you’ll feel so much more confident and assertive if you feel groomed and well presented.”

What’s your work style?
I’m now all about looking polished yet relaxed at work. I love throw-on dresses, jackets and great shoes. At the moment I’m sporting quite a few relaxed knit pieces from Celine and Victoria Beckham; they’re structured but really comfortable!”

What’s your ultimate work outfit?
“Tailored pants, flats/white sneakers (depending on the weather), a knit and a great jacket.”

What are your top three 3 must-haves?
“TDE Tote bag (perfect work carry all), white Isabel Marant trainers, and a black Celine jumper.”

What’s your top tip for dressing like a #girlboss?
“Look clean and smart, but dress practically. Flared sleeves don’t work when furiously typing or wrapping orders!

What’s your work style?
“My work style is practical, comfortable and stylish. You could describe my style as part sport luxe and athleisure – I’m all about mixing fashion with sportswear for my every day outfits.?”

What’s your ultimate work outfit?
“It would definitely include sneakers. I wear them every day! It means I can run around and get everything done in comfort, but also style – sneakers of all kinds are huge in fashion at the moment, and the trend is not going away anytime soon.?”

“If I’ve got meetings that day, I’ll dress up a pair of kicks with either a dress or skirt to make the look more feminine. It’s important for me to feel dressed up, you never know who you could bump in to!?”

What are your top three must-haves?
“Sneakers, an Apple Watch and a blazer. They’re my every day staples.”

What’s your top tip for dressing like a #girlboss?
“I get more done in the day if I’m dressed comfortably. Wear clothes that are equal parts practical and stylish – which is perfect for today’s athleisure style!”
