Choose the bag or shoes and then dress around it, says Isabel Spearman
What are you dressing up for this month?
The launch of my @DailyDressEdit pop-up on Motcomb Street, in collaboration with property developer Grosvenor. With 25 beautiful brands to choose from, I am struggling to pick what to wear on the night.
I love how women in the business and political worlds use fashion to get their message across. Michelle Obama is the perfect example.
I live in dresses and always look for a fun print or a block colour. As a freelance consultant, I can be in a board meeting in the morning and styling a photoshoot in the afternoon, so a flattering dress is my solution.
Favourite online retailers?
Under the radar labels?
A pair of high-waisted boyfriend jeans from Topshop with one of my husband’s old cashmere jumpers.
I am a white dress fanatic. I will pair them with some fabulous espadrilles and clutch bags found on far-flung market stalls. I am still looking for an excuse to wear a full length vintage white Laura Ashley dress I found in a shop in Ibiza last summer.
I prefer a ‘starting touch’– I’ll choose the bag or shoes and then dress around it.
I ride rather than walk, so a good gallop. It is a tonic for the job I do.
Lilac – you can colour block it with yellow or green.
Being happy and comfortable in what I wear to work is the best style cheat. It’s also vital to be confident in knowing what suits you and what doesn’t. And if you don’t – find someone who can help you.
@DailyDressEdit opens on Motcomb Street, Belgravia 9–22 May
