How POPSUGAR Publisher Marisa Keeps Her Classic Style Modern

It's hard to dispute the ease of an LBD, the function of a trench coat or the practicality of a pointy-toe pump, but did you know that you can add timeless classics to your wardrobe without looking like a catalogue cliché? I've spent years honing my styling skills to encapsulate a look that blends fuss-free basics with modern design, and I can honestly say that my wardrobe is now filled with pieces that have a place in my past, present and future.

My formula to looking timeless yet on-trend is simple — I choose seasonal colours and silhouettes to update classics such as striped tops, denim and tailored separates, and I avoid wearing a "look" from head to toe. For example, I've added leather to my wardrobe this Winter, but I've kept the shapes streamlined and simple rather than sporty, as I know I'll get more bang for my buck with a pair of skinny rather than slouchy pants. I apply the same rule to my accessories barely-there gold and silver jewellery will always take precedence over anything too statement-making, which is why this season's PANDORA collection suits my aesthetic to a tee. Want to take a closer look at my personal style and the pieces I'll be adding to cart this season? Step right this way...
