Wardrobe Solutions for the Modern Woman

Feature: Long Read
Words by Candice Lake

Fashion, for me, is how you see yourself, and how the world sees you. It’s “Who do I want to be today?” That is the power of clothes. I don’t believe you need endless pieces in your wardrobe. I’m all about a concise edit that can transition you from morning to afternoon to night. Where can it take me? How can I style it? That’s how I like to shop.

My Day in Outfits

A typical day for me is very kinetic. There are so many moving parts.

Morning

My morning has to be quite a seamless look. I’m getting the kids ready, I’m doing the school run and, often, I’ll go straight from that to a meeting. I like quality, comfortable pieces that can transition. Accessories are especially key here – a fabulous bag or shoe will elevate your look, effortlessly. I love pairs like Versace’s crystal La Medusa flats, for example, because they’re chic, but you can run around in them.

Work

Clothes are like armour. At work, they help me feel empowered and strong. As my career has evolved, I find myself wearing more suits and tailoring. As a fashion photographer, when I’m shooting, I need to have something I can move around in – but I also need to liaise with clients. Proportions are really important. I like to wear high-waisted, oversized trousers with a slimmer top. Or even a tiny little tank top with a bigger, structured jacket. It’s all about balance. When you play to contrasts, the results can be really chic.

Eventing

I love dressing up. After a day of work, it’s a really good way to shift your mindset – you put on a party dress, and everything feels fabulous. I want tassels, I want sparkles, I want embellishment. A total showstopper. Again, I’ll consider the balance of a piece. Think a shorter hemline, but with long sleeves. Since I’m doing a-hundred different things during the day, I have to be really practical – but, in the evening, I can be whoever I want. There’s something so special about that.
