How would you describe your work wardrobe?
Sophisticated but with accents of fun. I might wear all black then add a print heel or bright nails.

How do you dress to go straight from boardroom to bar?
I’ll take a dress to the office or if I’m wearing skinny trousers, I’ll change my top or blazer. What’s your key to work dressing?  Always look professional but don’t look dull. There’s nothing wrong with vamping up muted tones (grey, navy or black) with splashes of colour.

How do you dress to impress?
Be yourself, everyone looks cool when they are most comfortable.

Do you have an item that makes you feel more confident?
A pair of super high sexy heels always give me a lift.
