Whether they’re heading up business meetings or running stock checks, Clare and Rebecca know how to combine comfort and practicality with personal style. Working across London, the sisters rely on scooters to get around and so their clothes need to be professional yet practical...

'When it comes to glasses, as I have a small face, I like smaller ones with more definition. I go for pilot-style sunglasses, as they suit most people. I always choose muted colours that work well with my outfits. As you get older you learn what suits you and what doesn’t. It’s all about enhancing your natural beauty, and what works for your style choices,’ says Rebecca.

Clare she takes a very hand-on approach within the business, so being comfortable in her work wardrobe is one of the biggest factors when it comes to choosing what to wear to the office. ‘Day-to-day, I deal with our suppliers and factories, so I might have to do a stock check, and then when I get home I have two young children to deal with. So my style has to be versatile and hard-wearing. My wardrobe staples are just a few dresses and a good quality pair of jeans.’
