Read on to meet a few members of our team, and learn about our individual style and why we love what we do…

Rebecca, 34, has worked for Tuesday since 2016. With a flair for elegant and chic styling, her customers love her feminine approach to fashion and use of colour, educating them on how to wear classic pieces in a modern and fresh way. She heads up the blog and runs all the editorial content, so is always super busy. Here are her top tips:

What do you love about your job?

Every day is different. I know everyone says that, but it really is true. The beauty of Tuesday is you get to chop and change which customers you are styling, so no day is ever the same. As for editorial, I love the diversity of the subjects I get to write about. I get to come up with really engaging, fun concepts and can be really creative. Plus, there’s always a random technology bug that develops out of nowhere with the CMS system we use, so there’s a lot of problem solving behind the scenes too – I think it likes to keep me on my toes!

What would be your daytime go-to outfit?

Anyone what knows me will know I’m a fan of pleated skirts. I promise you, there is no occasion they’re not perfect for. For me, an easy daytime look would be a longline sleeveless top, layered over the top of a minimal pleated skirt (usually white). I love the clean, streamline silhouette it creates. It’s also great if you’re feeling a bit bloated as it will skim over your body without drawing attention to your middle and the clever layering elongates everything – which is great when you’re also only 5’4. Then depending on my mood I’ll either be in heels or trainers. There’s rarely an in between.

What are your top tips for a capsule wardrobe?

Invest. I know, some of the true timeless staples may be a little pricey (leather trousers, I’m looking at you) but I’m a firm believer that if you pay more, you get more. Think about it in a cost-per-wear perspective. Sure, that trend-led printed summer dress will be perfect for this season, but fast-forward 3-4 years and are you still going to love it as much? Doubtful. However, a timeless trench coat, a silk shirt and a cashmere jumper will always be worth their weight in gold.

Hi Rebecca, your fashion choices make me visit the store to check out what’s new. It’s great that you always manage to find appealing clothes that I feel confident wearing. Enjoy receiving your fashion updates, thanks, Sue.

Nicola, 37, is one of the newest recruits to the Tuesday team. With a passion for mixing high-street, designer and vintage clothing, her customers really connect with her ability to style cool pieces in a wearable way for day-to-day wear. As a mother of two she is the team’s go-to for mum style and post pregnancy advice, always on hand to support with the tricky requests!

How would you describe your style in 3 words?

Feminine, eclectic, and chic.

How did you get into styling?

I’ve always loved clothes and fashion from a young age. After studying Media & TV at University of Manchester I decided I wanted to pursue a fashion career. I started out in retail and moved to London for a job as a design assistant for several high-street fashion designers. This was a great starting point as I learned so much about the industry. Whilst working, I did a part-time styling course and then moved into editorial, interning at Happy magazine and Net-A-Porter. I then fell into the marketing side of fashion and worked as a copywriter for H.Samuel & Ernest Jones and F&F at Tesco. After I had my first baby, Stella, I went on maternity leave and decided not to go back to work full time. I launched an Etsy shop selling vintage and started writing a style blog. After the birth of my second child, Beatrix, I then joined the Tuesday team as a full-time stylist.

What tips would you give to busy mums always on the go?

Being a mum, life can be pretty hectic so feeling comfortable and confident is important. I want things I can throw on quickly and know they just work! A jumpsuit is a favourite for those days when we need to get up and go. I love a boiler suit with longer sleeves that can be rolled up when it’s warm or layered over a roll neck in winter. I would pair it with trainers and a biker jacket from trips to the park to the school run. A bold red lip will also distract from tired eyes.

Hi Nicola . . . Loving the style combos that you have been putting together for me. I’ve ordered a few items. Looking forward to trying them on. Cheers, Claire

Katie, 26, is team Tuesday’s most glamorous resident and is also a trained beauty therapist with experience in both make-up and cosmetic skin care. Responsible for writing our blogs beauty posts, our customers love her ability to translate how the complex ingredients work in an easily understandable manner, keeping us looking fresh, youthful and bright eyed. Her styling is always colourful and bright, playing with print and bold accessories. Pink and leopard print are prominent features.

What is your favourite thing about being a stylist?

I really enjoy pulling together a mixture of pieces to create a gorgeous new look – it’s like creating a piece of artwork. You can take the simplest of items and make it look incredible by pairing it with just the right items and watching that happen is so satisfying. A great outfit can boost a woman’s confidence and make her feel like the best version of herself. It always makes me happy to hear about how I’ve helped to transform someone’s personal style.

What is your go-to evening look?

That would have to be a pair of wide-leg trousers, a silky camisole and barely there heels. I like to look glamorous when I go out but also want to be able to move with ease, so I have plenty of room to dance!

Which autumn / winter 2019 trends are you looking forward to styling?

Not one to shy away from colour, I was mesmerised by the head-to-toe bright outfits seen at Jacquemus, Dolce & Gabbana and Balenciaga. I can’t wait to add vibrancy to autumnal looks with bold injections of hot pink, orange and tomato red. I’ve also seen plenty of leather trousers rocking the runway too – from high-shine styles at Isabel Marant to more tailored options at Hermès. A staple in my personal wardrobe, I look forward to sharing how wearable these wowzer trousers really are.

Thanks Katie.  I have checked the selection and found your suggestions very helpful. It saves me time trawling around on my own looking for inspiration. Gillian

Mary, 34, is Tuesday’s resident bohemian who is usually draped in retro-style clothing, maxi dresses inspired by eras gone by and bold floral patterns. When she isn’t styling edits, Mary can be found supporting Rebecca subbing copy for the blog thanks to her experience within fashion editorial and copywriting. Mary’s customers love when she creates feminine, print-led looks, pushing them to try new accessories and lingerie solutions that suit their shape.    

How would you describe your style?

Inspired by 70s icons such as Stevie Nicks and Janis Joplin, I would say I am quite creative and hippie. I have a passion for second-hand clothing, and my go-to look is usually a printed floaty midi dress and leather ankle boots. You can often find me rummaging through rails at vintage markets or looking for handmade trinkets on eBay. I love prints, or anything with tassels and I definitely have a penchant for cowboy boots and fedora hats.

What three items could you not live without?

Ankle boots are my go-to shoe for any occasion. Silver bohemian-style jewellery is a must for every outfit, and lastly red lipstick, no matter how tired I feel it always gives me an instant uplift.

What are your top tips for customers wanting to try a new trend?

Don’t overthink it or get yourself in a tiz. If you’re not ready for a head-to-toe look then start off small with accessories instead. If it’s a new-season print then slowly inject it into your everyday look through a scarf or bag, and if the trend is a bold colour then buy a few separates and mix them into your existing wardrobe.

Thanks Mary. I think it’s really good so far – definitely my style. I’ve ordered a couple of items from last month, and am going to check out a couple next time in a store, Julie
