THE OUTNET.COM’s Senior Fashion Editor on how she wears peplum, one of the season’s biggest trends

I love my job because…
I get to work with such fabulous clothes on a daily basis — everything from Marchesa ballgowns to J. Brand denim. I also get to work with lots of very talented and inspiring people.

In this photo I’m wearing…
Tory’s Madeline Peplum sweater, a vintage leopard-print blouse and Alexander McQueen brocade pants and Proenza Schouler rope sandals from The Outnet.

I would wear this look to…
Work. It’s perfect for a day of meetings in the office. I’d wear something more casual if I was shooting — always flats on set. It’s chic and fun. you can’t help but feel cheered up by the print on the pants!

The key to wearing a peplum silhouette is…
To keep the rest of your look clean, and wear it with slim-fit pants or a pencil skirt.

Peplum is popular because…
It’s easy to wear and it creates a flattering silhouette!

My style mantra is…
Have fun with fashion. It’s there to be enjoyed.

The best piece of fashion advice I ever received is…
From my mother, a truly fearless dresser. She always says that rules are made be broken — wear pink with red or navy with black.

The key to British style is…
To have fun with fashion and to not take yourself or your look too seriously!

My ideal day in London is…
A long walk in Hyde Park with my husband and Bailey our miniature schnauzer puppy, followed by lunch at the Serpentine café and a movie with the girls in the evening.

My go-to London restaurant is…
E & O. The food is incredible. I love the chilli salt squid, black miso cod and lychee beelines.

My sign is… 
Aquarius. It’s also my husband’s.

My charity is…
Cancer Research. It means a lot to me as I lost both my father and my aunt to the disease. I’ve raised close to £5,000 for them over the years by doing charity runs.
