ON THE STREET

What are you wearing today?

A basic white long-sleeve tee from the House of G (Glassons) with a classic stretch denim jacket from Just Jeans, a tran-seasonal item with enough room to layer underneath. The skirt is from McRae's Fashion in Blenheim and New Zealand made. My white boots are also made in New Zealand, an impulse buy while visiting Hanmer.

Do you have a usual style?

Totally anything, from my on-the-go-active and tennis wear, totally glam.

What items do you have the most of in your wardrobe?

I would have to say I have quite a few dresses. I like to build a functional, beautiful wardrobe with bright colours that makes getting dressed fun and a way to express myself.

What looks or trends do you like at the moment?

I’ve always been a fan of colour and patterns. At the moment I’m all for floral and leopard print; anything bright and fun. After all, it’s 2020, wear what you love, what makes you feel comfortable and happy, even if it’s rocking a mask for Covid.

Where do you buy most of your clothes?

In the past I’ve been a big fan of Modcloth, but with times being tough for many, I like to support and invest in Aotearoa fashion, small businesses locally and nationally.

What wardrobe staple should everyone invest in?

It’s hard to choose one thing from my distinctly non-minimalist wardrobe but my favourite would be my blue velvet jacket. It has all the style and strut of it’s leather cousin, but without the shine. It’s versatile, soft and less likely to crack over time.

Finish this sentence. You would never catch me wearing...

Shoulderpads.
