The distinction between off-duty and on-duty wear for me has always been a hazy concept. 
I don’t think I have ever quite grasped the notion of “dressing up” for certain occasions – 
my philosophy instead being to dress precisely how I wish to at any given time. This is why 
you so rarely see me in heels or more than a few key pieces of jewellery. This is why my 
hair always stays just that little bit unkempt, and my make-up much the same as it always is. 
On the flip-side, this is also why I feel entirely comfortable incorporating a structured 
silk bandeau top into by everyday wear. My thoughts simply being: well, why not? My 
aim is to invest in a wardrobe of pieces I can wear day-to-night / lunch-to-dinner / work-to-
play without the need to change – it is simply a case of conjuring up the right combinations 
to ensure a neat balance is met each time. By your terms, mind – forget everyone else’s. 
The more we start “dressing up” for ourselves, regardless of the occasion, the more 
interesting fashion would tend to become.

It’s a thought, at least.
