Super style

Whether you dress to impress or just enjoy a comfortable shoe, style is highly individual and personal. There’s no rule that states that one must pop on a cardy the day of retirement. If anything, it is the perfect time to break rules and make your own stylish mark on the world.

As the famous fashion doyen Iris Apfel says, "You have to look in the mirror and see yourself. If it feels good, then I know it’s for me. I don’t dress to be stared at, I dress for myself." In her award-winning documentary Iris Apfel comments on "how clothes are more than just the things we put on our backs. The best pieces are the ones our hearts do somersaults over".

A great way to start a style journey is to do a personal colour palette quiz. Find out which seasonal tones work for you.
