At the age of 28, I think I’ve kind of locked down my own personal style. Don’t get me wrong, I love to experiment every now and then, but on a day-to-day basis, you will find me in either a long floaty dress with trainers or some kind of tailored trouser with a polo neck and, yep, you’ve guessed it, trainers. Given the temperamental British weather, I normally opt for the latter outfit to save my ankles from the cold, and there’s one place I always go for my trousers: H&M.
My obsession with its trouser choices started about a year ago when I bought my still-going-strong favourite pair of checkered kick-flares. They fit perfectly, sit just on my ankles and have a slight kick at the bottom that looks perfect when partnered with boots, trainers and heels if I’m feeling brave. Fast-forward a year and a half, and I still wear them on a weekly basis, but I’ve also added more H&M trousers to my collection, and whenever I wear the above black-and-white pair and share them on Instagram, I get a stream of DMs from people asking me where they’re from.
