My Style: Pippa Bennett-Warner
What makes you feel your best self?
My Michael Jordan number 23 Chicago Bulls basketball top. I’m obsessed with The Last Dance. It’s a man’s top so I wear it as a dress at home with Charvet slippers.
What’s your everyday uniform?
A Canadian tuxedo: a Céline by Phoebe Philo shirt, Agolde jeans and a Levi’s denim jacket with Air Max 90s. It’s what I feel most comfortable in if I’m running around town. Wardrobe failsafes: A pair of black Céline by Phoebe Philo jeans, a black polo neck and a black shirt from The Row. Style icon: My mother, Paulette. She’ll always be the most elegant woman in the world to me.
Power dressing: what makes you feel you can conquer the world?
I prefer really good tailoring to dresses. A well cut shirt, jacket and trousers and any shoes by Christian Louboutin.
Summer holiday essentials?
I would go to either Jamaica or St Kitts. In my bag would be Ganni and old Marni summer dresses, a pair of Tevas and some Céline by Phoebe Philo sunglasses.
I have three perfumes in rotation: Agent Provocateur’s Eau de Parfum, La Maison Hedonique’s Samedi à Paris and Frédéric Malle’s Portrait of a Lady. I don’t wear jewellery every day but I love my Elsa Peretti bone cuff and my hotlips rings by Solange Azagury-Partridge.
Country walk, what’s your style?
A Margaret Howell anorak, jeans, a Bella Freud jumper and either Le Chameau wellies or Converse high tops. Under the radar labels: During lockdown I discovered Mateo, a Black owned Jamaican-American brand. It does the chicest jewellery and bags.
Online go-to retailer?
Vestiaire Collective is my absolute favourite site. I’m big on circular fashion.
Find a great tailor and if in doubt, wear black!
