W&W Wardrobe - real life style

W&W Wardrobe - real life style

Cath Dickinson, 41 is Assistant Head of College at the University of York and has a very low key way with fashion, always looks amazing but never lets the clothes ‘wear her’. We took a look inside her wardrobe...

What is your wardrobe? (Antique armoire, built in closet, back of a chair, a whole room?)

 I have a full wall of built in storage

 How often do you shop?

 Every couple of weeks.

 What’s your most treasured item?

 A 1950s-blue silk cocktail dress by the Fontana sisters (they dressed Grace Kelly!)

 What’s the one piece you always buy every single season?

Striped top, underwear.

 What’s the item you are guaranteed to wear at least once a week?

Black high waisted skinny jeans.

Trousers or skirts?


Jumper or Jacket?


What’s your weekend style?

Jeans, sweater, trainers and blazer

 How has your style changed over the years?

Lots. I was a hippy/indie child, then had a glam phase, then a bit more formal ‘workified’, and I occasionally combine it all.

 Whose wardrobe do you covet?

I quite like Alexa Chung’s effortless look
