Daisy Lowe’s Style Secrets

Daisy Lowe’s Style Secrets

Model and IT girl Daisy Lowe exclusively reveals her style secrets, go-to labels and most prized piece of clothing …

MY DAY-TO- DAY STYLE is quite utilitarian: a pair of vintage 1970s jeans,?a soft cotton T-shirt from James Perse, and a pair of?combat boots. I have a bit of an adventurous spirit, so I like clothes to give me a sense?of freedom.?I don’t like to feel constrained by what I wear. Having said that, there’s a time and place for a great pencil skirt. For my birthday night out, I wore a Latex dress!?On the high street, Topshop and ASOS always work for me, and Zara?? whenever I spot someone looking fabulous in an item of clothing, it’s always from Zara!

WOMEN?WITH?GREAT STYLE always look like they have great confidence too. I think that comes from wearing something you feel good in. I know if I wear clothes that are too tight and feel uncomfortable, I won’t?have a good day. Katharine Hepburn?is my style icon. She always looked feminine and powerful. There was something very modern yet timeless about her look.

I ALWAYS FEEL SPECIAL?when I wear Saint Laurent. My most outrageous purchase was a Saint Laurent burgundy velvet jacket embellished with gold beaded stars. I had to justify it to myself by rationalising that it would become a family heirloom!

ERDEM?AND?DOLCE & GABBANA?are my go-to labels. They exude glamour. I love to wear vintage, too;?in particular, pieces from the 1930s and 1970s, although the former is becoming harder to find.
