We asked all our fashion writers to share a little more about their style and their fashion mistakes - because we've all been there. 

1. Your earliest fashion memory

Red t-bar buckled shoes and a floral dress that I used to wear to everyone's birthday parties, I was about 4 and the dress had buttons down the front instead of the back, which seemed quite out there at that age.

2. Your biggest fashion faux pas

Thinking that blue eyeliner went with everything. I also had a very prolonged emo/punk stage. I was fully into pop music but was also very dedicated to black wide leg corduroy pants and heft platform boots. It was a vibe.

3. The trend you can't wait to try this season

I'm always pleased when I see sequins on the agenda - championing day sequins has been a long-term thing for me. I'd also really like to invest in a new bomber jacket, my leather bomber jacket I fear has finally got too worn - it has been with me (second-hand) for over a decade.

4. The three pieces in your capsule wardrobe you can't live without

Trainers - I am always racing around so flat, comfy footwear is a must, a crossbody bag for hands-free carrying, and sunglasses.

5. Describe your style in 5 words 

Boho, sporty, bright, smart/casual.
