It’s really not what you think

We’re always on a mission to find out how to nail supermodel style when you’re a mere mortal, so when Suki Waterhouse revealed her absolute must-have fashion item, she had our attention.

Given the fact she regularly graces the catwalk at Burberry and the like, you might think it’s a perfectly tailored dress, or killer heels, but no.

Suki’s go-to is a pair of boots. She reveals, ‘Not heels but your day to day stomping boots I think are what give you the foundation to how you hold yourself in the world. I'm wearing black suede slightly wedged boots at the moment which go with everything.’

And the other wardrobe staple Suki can’t live without? A white t-shirt.

‘It’s god’s gift. You can't have enough of them for when you just don't know what to wear, which happens a lot, they are the perfect safety net,’ she says.

The model, alongside her sister Immy and model Alanna Arrington, is the face of online shopping destination SHOPBOP’s new spring campaign, #FindYourSpring which celebrates female friendship.

So there you have it, sometimes less is more! Though if you do want to have a bit of fun with your look for spring, Suki recommends 70s jumpsuits, tracksuits and lots of pink…

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
