Ideas For a Capsule Work Wardrobe

Financier Aita Ighodaro conducts business regularly across two or more continents so she really needs a wardrobe that will travel well. Wecaught up with her as she dashed through London to find a feminine style that isn’t too girly but yet utterly practical. Clue: it’s all about the magic dress that never creases.

If you had to list 3 must have items in your wardrobe what would they be?

Colourful bikinis. I work hard, but I love the sunshine and it energises me, so I try to get as much of it as possible!
Belted coats and trenches – when I can’t be in the sun I like a cover up with a cinched in waist, I find it a timeless and feminine look but it’s not ‘girly’.
A large handbag as I carry so much around with me and nearly always have my laptop amongst other things. At the moment I love a vintage Louis Vuitton epi leather one I found in a market in Saint Tropez.

Can you remember your first item of clothing that made you feel like a grown up? What was it?

I think it was my first pair of skin tight jeans when I was about 11 or 12. I remember feeling quite foxy and pleased with myself. They were probably a stretch Topshop pair or something like that.
