Style that delivers on every level, by stylist Tessa Frost

As a Mum and Stylist, I need a wardrobe that delivers on so many levels: I need it to look permanently ‘put together’ in an understated, yet accessible way...unless I’m in my gym kit and then it’s absolutely acceptable to have an hour off!

Versatility is key. My clothes need to take me through the various hurdles of an average day, from the school run to a client styling session, on to a working lunch, followed by a messy play date, kids’swimming class and then drinks somewhere swanky - all with less than 5 minutes to get ready in between.

I like to choose capsule pieces that are easy to wear and accessorise. Particularly in Autumn/Winter, I tend to rely on several key, luxury items that work hard through the season and will be sufficiently versatile, to form the basis of my wardrobe.

I team these with my high street ‘fashion’ buys. An excellent quality, investment knit can be dressed up or down - and I can play around with texture, colour, print, detail, shape and style because the knit is such a classic, versatile and cool piece.

And transitioning quickly from day time to evening is as effortless as it gets – I add some statement heels, a fabulous pair of earrings, finish things off with some smoky eye make up, a clutch, and I’m good to go!

My favourite outfits are easy to put together and even easier to wear, doing the hard work for me so that I can focus on work and play, feeling confident and looking good, whatever I’m doing.

With Love,

Tessa (Fig & Frost)

Dinny Hall hosts Ille De Cocos - AW collection launch

Dinny Hall Hosts Ille De Cocos

It is a huge honour to be collaborating with Dinny Hall jewellery this Autumn. I have long been a fan of their beautifully crafted pieces, designed with longevity in mind. Very much in line with the Ille De Cocos philosophy. So it was an easy decision when they approached me to host the launch of my new Autumn Collection.

 Visit us at the Dinny Hall store in Hampstead this September.
