At least twice a week I find myself sitting cross-legged on the floor staring into the depths of my wardrobe, wondering what to put on. Amen to the girls who feel me, to those who don’t – I envy you. Seriously though, putting a look together can be quite daunting. There are style rules to keep and rules to break, trends to follow and is layering still a thing? When you’re well and truly stuck, who better to turn to than our sartorial gurus – fashion designers, editors, models and style muses. They know just what to say to get you back on your feet.
