Welcome back to Street Style! Today we’re excited to introduce you to Rachael Cocking, the genius behind Just Rach. Rach is a 22 year old student about to begin her teaching PGCE in September, with a happy-go-lucky personality that is absolutely contagious! Her blog features her adorably-girly style and excellent nail art tutorials – did we mention that she also does a weekly nail column on the Fashion Geeks blog? Well she does! She also loves to share all of her wonderful life adventures, and she always snaps gorgeous pictures for her readers along her way! So without further ado, here’s Rach!
1. What would you say is your primary style inspiration?
I don’t think I have a particular person who inspires me, but I definitely follow the fashion philosophy that ‘less is more’. I love the idea of wearing simple, classic and timeless combinations that create effortless style. I also believe in buying slightly more expensive staple investment pieces less often, as opposed to spending lots on ‘throw away fashion’ each week.
2. What’s your favourite article of clothing in your wardrobe?
At the moment that has to be my new tweed jacket. It goes with pretty much any outfit, and adds that extra touch to an otherwise simple outfit.
3. Who is your biggest style crush?
Zooey Deschanel! I love her girly, flattering 50s inspired outfits. I think the outfits she wears always look absolutely magnificent on her! It’d be my dream to own her wardrobe.
4. If you could go on a trip with The Doctor to any year in history and go on a one-day, no limits shopping spree, “when” would you go?
This is definitely my favourite question but a really difficult one, everyone knows I’m a HUGE Doctor Who fan. …only one day? I’d spend half the day hyperventilating because I’d met The Doctor! I think when forced to choose I’d go to the 1800s – to the time of Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice my favourite book), the beautiful, elegant dresses and gorgeous hair-dos. I’d dance the night away in my pretty dress!
