Style File: Marisa Horden, founder of Missoma – and exclusive 15% discount

Having only discovered Missoma relatively recently (I know! What on earth have I been doing with my time?) I am now a big fan of this contemporary jewellery brand. Subtly chic, yet with an edge, Missoma's designs are just what I want to wear right now. Pave studs in cool little designs, necklaces designed to be layered and bracelets made to be stacked are all a very modern way of dressing. And so, I was intrigued to find out more about founder Marisa Horden. We know what she loves jewellery-wise, but what about clothes? Here she talks style, beauty and her view on what jewellery we'll all want to be wearing in 2017. PLUS we have an exclusive 15% discount for W&W readers...…

My Uniform: A Style Album’s Emma Thatcher

Emma Thatcher is one half of A Style Album, the blog she curates with her friend, Louise Redknapp. We love their work (their warmth and friendship makes A Style Album a very inviting place to visit) and their style, which you can follow via Instagram (@astylealbum; follow Emma @emmarosethatcher). We caught up with Emma to talk working with a friend, her new favourite brands and late-night shopping (she’s definitely our type of woman…).…

My Uniform: Carrie Elizabeth, founder of Carrie Elizabeth Jewellery

Imagine a brand which sells jewellery beautiful enough to feel special - and yet sufficiently affordable that you don't have to wait for someone to ask you to marry them in order to treat yourself. Clever, right? That's exactly what Carrie Elizabeth's eponymous jewellery brand does: bridge the gap between high street and high end, with gorgeous, "proper" jewellery that doesn't cost the earth. It's fabulous - and very stylish, rather like the woman herself...…

Style File: shoe designer Lucy Choi

As the niece of Jimmy Choo, you can safely say that Lucy Choi has shoes in the blood. A London-based designer who opened her first standalone store last year, she is renowned for her beautiful, hand-crafted pieces that manage to combine style, comfort and glamour. As the woman behind some of the best-dressed feet in London, we bet her wardrobe is pretty darn special too….…

My Uniform: Marielle Wyse of Wyse London

Inspiring, enthusiastic, a walking advertisement for the ‘got a great idea? Just do it’ philosophy? That would be Marielle Wyse, the founder of Wyse London cashmere . “I’ve always loved cashmere jumpers,” she explains, “but never could find what I liked at the price I liked. So I thought I would do it myself.” The result is an impeccably curated collection of 100% desirable knitwear with clever touches: sequin elbow patches, lurex thread detail, rainbow stripes… Warning: it’s almost impossible to resist.…

Style File: Zara Simon, jewellery designer and creator of the Z for Accessorize collection

Talented jewellery designer Zara Simon has Monsoon and Accessorize in her veins. As daughter of founder Peter Simon, the brand’s gorgeous boho feel is part of her DNA and subsequently she was the perfect person to design a capsule collection of jewellery for Accessorize. Having studied at Central Saint Martins, Zara launched her own eponymous collection before starting the Z for Accessorize range. Featuring beautiful pieces designed to be layered or worn on their own, both Natasha and I are huge fans. Here she lets us into her wardrobe and talks about the labels, designers and clothes that make up her own unique style….…

My Uniform: Joanne Hegarty of The Stylist and The Wardrobe

Joanne Hegarty is my new Instagram crush. A personal stylist and the blogger behind The Stylist and the Wardrobe, she specialises in the kind of relaxed, pared-down chic which is all the more inspiring for being (or I like to think it is) accessible. I love her blog and her Instagram feed (check it out @thestylistandthewardrobe. FYI: the glimpses of her house are gorgeous, too.)…

Style File: Smallable’s Cécile Roederer

Cécile Roederer is very chic, very charming and very cool. She is the founder and CEO of Smallable – a concept store for children which is impeccably curated. Imagine Net-a-Porter meets Selfridges – but for children – and you’re pretty much there. We also adore the super-stylish magazine. (Warning: the temptation to shop is almost irresistible. And they are branching out into womenswear. Uh-oh.) We had to request a glimpse into her super-stylish world – including a peek at what’s hot for AW15 for children, mamas and interiors……

Style File: Caroline White, founder of Sukishufu

I never thought much about what I wore when I went running. I used to just sling on an old t-shirt and a 10-year old pair of cropped leggings and out the door I’d go (not that this happened that often). But, whilst flicking through Instagram, I came across a pair of SukiShufu’s Universe leggings and oh my goodness, I lusted. I mean seriously lusted. And, that was that. Fast-forward a few weeks and in ‘real life’ they are just as swoon-worthy. The galaxy of stars print is divine and I LOVE the silver leather-look waistband, but the fit is something else. Made from a breathable fabric, they feel like a second skin and I actually think they might make me run faster, it feels so good to wear them. A relatively new brand, Sukishufu was founded by ex-banker-turned-yoga instructor Caroline White who couldn’t find any workout clothes she loved, so designed her own (gotta love that get up and go attitude). In a bid to find out more about the woman who created my new favourite leggings, we asked her all about workout wear and what other little gems she keeps in her wardrobe……

Style File: Sarah Curran of Very Exclusive

One of the things I love most about Style File is discovering what women who work in fashion actually wear themselves. As MD of new e-commerce platform Very Exclusive (where you can buy a designer item and spread the cost over 3 months), Sarah Curran has to walk that tricky tightrope of looking on-trend and as ready for meetings with investors and business people as she is with designers and fashion bods. Her style is chic, accessible and very covetable. If you’re after a gorgeous new look, then this busy working mother’s wardrobe is definitely one to covet……
