Looking stylish and being comfortable are top priorities for hairdresser Toni-Marie Robinson, owner of Blenheim’s Cutz on Weld. Toni-Marie finds she is busy and on her feet most of the day, therefore a wardrobe that is practical and easy to create different looks from is a must.
What are you wearing today?
A Witchery blue and white stripe shirt, black faux leather pants from McRaes and white Puma sneakers.
What is your style?
I’m all about comfort, as I stand all day with my job. So anything that is comfortable.
What is most of your wardrobe made up of?
Shirts and trousers. Plus the odd dress.
What are you loving at the moment?
Boyfriend-style shirts. I love that you can just tuck part of it in and it still looks classic.
What are you dressed for today?
Work and comfort.
Where do you buy most of your clothes from?
McRaes. Always local. I’m all about supporting local businesses. I find I like to try things on and get an honest opinion from shop assistants.
What is your approach to shopping?
I aim to buy items I can intermingle. That way I get more wear out of the pieces and can keep it simple.
What is your all-time favourite purchase?
A classic striped shirt from Witchery which can be dressed up or down, tucked in or left out.
What has been your worst clothing disaster?
A checkered dress. It made me look like I was wearing a tablecloth - as my wonderful children told me.
What wardrobe item should everyone invest in?
Classic shirts. Be it striped or one colour. For me, it’s about adding things to dress it up.
Do you have a style rule you always obey?
I always have to feel comfortable and confident. Confidence gives you the ability to wear anything you want and look great.
If you could raid one person’s wardrobe, who would it be?
Karen Walker. She has the most amazing sense of style and confidence. I love how she is embracing her grey hair! She always looks classic.
Finish this sentence – You would never catch me wearing…
Crocs. I cannot stand them. Some people love them, but definitely not me!
