Essentials: Kate Reardon, writer
Sunday 27 January 2008
As someone who works from home, my top style tip is to make sure you get dressed in the morning. I spend a lot of my life in pyjamas, but if I'm feeling slinky I'll wear a silk pair from Shanghai Tang (www.shanghaitang.com).
My favourite thing in my wardrobe is my jewellery. I love ancient pieces, which I get from Faustus (www.faustuslondon.com). I have a beautiful Hellenistic gold and garnet ring – it's more than 2,200 years old but it looks very modern.
I'm crazy about Christian Louboutin (www.christianlouboutin.fr) shoes – a fail-safe for special occasions. I also love the attention to detail on Anya Hindmarch's clothes (www.anyahindmarch.com).
When it comes to skincare, Sudocrem (www.sudocrem.co.uk) is ridiculously cheap and heals spots and sunburn overnight. And I'd also recommend an anti-ageing facial from Bharti Vyas' (www.bharti-vyas.com).
