"I like to stick to the basics as my style is very much casual n’ chic. Weekend wear for me consists of a pair of good fitting jeans with some sort of design element, like this distressed pair, a top that matches everything, and then I like to tie it all together with accessories - a statement necklace, a great bag, some shades, a smart trench or a cool leather jacket.”
