For our June Style Battle™, we’ve taken Style Council members on Shopcade dates to find out more about them, their style and what fashion advice they can share!

For this date we took Rachel Holland, our June stylist for the winner’s shoot, and Alice Luker, fashion photographer, to My Old Dutch, London’s infamous pancake house where we stuffed ourselves with savoury and sweet ones topped off with a Ferrero Rocher milkshake…delicious!

And now, to business…

Rachel Holland 

1. How would you describe your style?

Heavily influenced by the 1960s and 1970s, often minimal, inspired by travelling and with a bit of rock ‘n’ roll thrown in.

2. What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe that you can’t live without?

My jewellery. I’ve been collecting unusual pieces for years.

3. What are your have trends this Summer?

I love the denim on denim trend, it’s so wearable and easy to pull off. Also carrying a leather rucksack instead of a handbag, it looks really modern and much more relaxed than a formal bag.

4. What are your fave three brands?

Acne, Margiela, Givenchy

5. Give us one piece of fashion advice…

Dress yourself in an organic, natural way and be true to yourself. Find your own individual style and your own way of dressing that feels good. Expressing who you are on the inside and reflecting it onto the outside beats mindlessly following the trends; That’s how most fashion editors dress – they find what works for them and they stick to it, almost like a uniform. You can then have fun switching up your look with accessories, jackets and shoes for each new season.

1. How would you describe your style?

My outfits tend to be quite monochromatic, often with a hint of red – lipstick, clothing wise or both- which contrasts well with my pale skin and dark hair. I admire Parisian style, its understated yet flawless and elegant.

2. What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe that you can’t live without?

Black polo neck tops. I used to have a vast selection of them, both thin and thick materials depending on the season but my washing machine seems to have eaten them up recently! On days off I wear my AC/DC or Guns N’ Roses t-shirts by Amplified.

3. What are your must have trends this Summer?

I love a floral tailored blazer and often find myself wearing one with a simple black or white midi top with high waisted shorts or jeans.

4. What are your fave three brands?

I love ASOS for basics, Zara for pretty much everything and Karen Millen for dresses.

5. Give us one piece of fashion advice…

ALWAYS walk out of the door feeling both confident and comfortable in your outfit.
