Theresa May A-Z: Q is for Quality over Quantity


A mantra that fits many of May’s opinions, you won’t see fast fashion in Number 10 Downing Street. Rarely wearing a barrage of pieces all at once, May relies on tried and tested fashion favourites to go about her daily business.

The blazer is a staple in Theresa May’s wardrobe. Owning several in a range of grey, brown and neutral hues, May mixes up her blazer stash, teaming them with dark trousers and a blouse, or opting for a classic white shirt and jeans. She has tweed jackets, boiled wool and cotton, and braided fabric versions, all adding variety and style for her working wardrobe.

Similarly, May knows that a good coat will last for years. A navy number with bell shaped sleeves served May well during her time as Home Secretary, and has made a few reappearances since she became Prime Minister. Similarly, a bright red wool coat has also been teamed with a classic navy trouser suit, most recently to the launch of the Conservatives local election campaign.

The Camel Coat

Two recent, quality additions to May’s coat wardrobe are a custom number from Daniel Blake and a camel piece from Amanda Wakeley. Military inspired, the former is a sophisticated black coat with an oversized collar and sophisticated sweeping cut. It’s gorgeous! The Wakeley camel coat is cut from a luxe wool blend, with slim pockets and dart detailing, and an invisible fastening. It’s the ultimate in meta-luxury.

Turning to accessories, May has a set of quality handbags that she uses on rotation. Totes from Anya Hindmarch and LK Bennett as well as clutches from Amanda Wakeley are some of May’s tried and tested designers.
