Street trend: Nessa Cotter

Name: Nessa Cotter

Street trend: Nessa Cotter

What are you wearing?

I’m wearing a jacket (€99), jeans (€39.95), and shoes (€50) from Zara; a Marc Jacobs bag (gift), a top from Miss Daisy Blue (can’t remember the price) and earrings from Azure Jewellery (gift) — both Cork-based boutiques.

Describe your style in three words:

Changing every day.

How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning?

I have the art of getting ready down to about 20 minutes. I will sacrifice a good hair day for my breakfast and a little extra time in bed.

Fashion or function — which word best describes your attitude to clothes and why?

Fashion — I love to dress up. High heels play a huge part in my life!

What’s your biggest source of style inspiration?

My travels, other fashion blogs; Instagram and Pinterest. I get inspiration from people I meet daily too.

What do you think of Irish street style?

It’s changed so much in the last two years and super to see people in Cork embracing their own sense of style.

Where do you like to shop?

I’m obsessed with Zara. I also love the vintage store Miss Daisy Blue in Cork which is my little piece of heaven in the city; not to mention brands like Maje, Sandro, and COS in Brown Thomas.

Who or what is Ireland’s greatest undiscovered gem?

Miss Daisy Blue. The gorgeous interior alone is enough to make you want to go in there! The staff is also so friendly and helpful.

Why does your style/outfit work?

What works for me doesn’t work for the next person!
