The founder of online boutique Net-a-porter.com has a classic 'uniform' which she updates each season with a few key items and some funky shoes.


1. A straw hat for summer


'Essential and stylish, I live in them when I am in the South of France.'


2. Big sunglasses


'I never leave home without them. They should never be worn indoors, though, as you should always let people see your eyes.'


3. A man's watch


'Quirky on a woman, and it makes one's wrist look delicate.'


4. A few new items from each season


'I pick a few pieces from each season to keep up to date. This bag is from Marc Jacobs' current collection.'


5. A white shirt


'Always a classic.'


6. A black cocktail dress


'Black for evening is a fail-safe, stylish option.'


7. A great statement bag


'My husband just gave me a Birkin for my birthday.'


8. Jeans


'In whichever shape and wash is the key look of the season, jeans are a staple.'


9. A black jacket


'I couldn't live without one - and haven't since I was about 20.'


10. Quirky retro shoes


'Shoes are my indulgence. Have fun with them.'


Styling Jennifer Cardenas
