1.5.17


Welcome to the month of May and our celebration of all things Theresa May! Over the next month we’ll be sharing the definitive A-Z guide to Theresa May’s sense of style and providing an expert view of what makes our Prime Minister so chic.

Leaving no stone unturned, we’ll be looking at her role as an ambassador for Brand Britain, the shops she sources her outfits from and some predictions for future pieces you might see her wear. We’ll be sharing some of her fashionable highlights and discussing how she is empowering women to show their personality through what they wear.

We’re keen to hear your thoughts on this A-Z series of Theresa May’s style. Reach out to us on politicalstyle@gmail.com or on Twitter- and don’t forget to share with your equally fashionable friends.

We begin at the beginning, and with the designer most synonymously linked with Theresa May….


A is for Amanda Wakeley

Sharp suits, Aztec print and a flash of neon, Theresa May turns to Amanda Wakeley for grown-up tailoring with a modern luxury twist.

A devotee of Amanda Wakeley for many years, Theresa May wore many of her luxury designs during her time as Home Secretary. Bold and dramatic, Wakeley’s designs are recognised for clean lines, impeccable fit and luxe details designed to take women through every aspect of their life’s journey with effortless chic. From ready to wear to gorgeous handbags, Wakeley’s designs provide stylish solutions for the multi-tasking Wakeley Woman.

Theresa May effortlessly fits this description, and in a way, Wakeley’s clothes are like her uniform. Wakeley understands that women need to feel empowered by their clothes, and how important it is to have essential pieces that hold a wardrobe together. Being in the public eye, May needs a wardrobe that works for her- something that is appropriate for her busy role, but at the same time provides unrivalled quality and confidence in the knowledge that you will always look your best.

Amanda Wakeley’s gorgeous designs provide this for the Prime Minister. From the iconic navy and lime shift and coat she wore on the steps of Number 10, to the black lace dress May debuted at the Royal Hall, the PM can turn to Wakeley for every important occasion. Classic accessories enable May and a whole army of Wakeley women to build their perfect capsule wardrobe, with a focus on quality craftsmanship, the latest use of technology and transitional pieces seamlessly transporting women from season to season.

I’m often asked which of May’s Wakeley wardrobe is my favourite. With so many amazing pieces it is difficult to make a decision. Whilst I adore the navy and lime outfit she wore to deliver her first speech as Prime Minister, a super chic black coat tops my list. Similar in style to the neon number, the Midtown Black Fringe coat is utter luxury. Cut with layers of fine fringing at the hem, this design creates sophisticated movement and is the ultimate statement piece. I hope we’ll see the PM wearing this again soon!

Theresa May’s love of fashion and Amanda Wakeley’s focus on effortless style make this power pairing a perfect match, and one which will continue for many years to come.
