Charlotte has been producing prize winning wine and olive oil at Castello di Potentino in Tuscany for ten years.  She doesn't go in for major clothes shopping, she has better things to do, but she does like classics that last and has a large collection of vintage items. She loves good boots and buys them in Rome and Buenos Aires. In winter she she takes off to Argentina and Bolivia where she raids the second hand clothes markets.

Angela Piddock Headteacher - London

The Look: Jacket Phase 8 last year; Black Top Gap four years old; Trousers Hobbs last year.

The joy of plain clothes is that they last, we are happy with less. We aren't interested in endless trends,  and buying into the 'must-have' culture. It's a relaxed approach yet it's not boring, we're aware of structure and what works. Less is definitely more.
