In my role I get the opportunity to be aware of the trends and see the key pieces early on. That doesn’t mean to say I’m going to buy into all of them. I like things to be functional but interesting. I often dress round my accessories – the most recent thing I bought was Christopher Kane’s brocade flats, which I wanted as soon as I saw them on the catwalk. I’ve spent the month’s in-between trying to work out a look around them. I live that fact they are so ‘fashion’ and directional, yet totally sensible. I’m very particular about what I buy: I try to restrain impulse purchases and think hard before committing.

Five tips for practical buyers

  1. Flats don’t have to be dull. I always look for something with a flourish a detail that makes a practical piece extraordinary.
  2. Avoid high-street designer copies and opt for collaborations and limited editions instead.
  3. Don’t think only high-end brands are fashion-forward: Topshop and ASOS excel.
  4. There’s a fine line between innovator and fashion victim. Look for interesting colour, fabric or detailing, rather than extreme shapes.
  5. A monochrome palette means you can get away with extreme-print accessories.
