Five Minutes of Fashion with Jade Jagger

Jade Jagger is a walking advert for Ibiza chic. She never looks anything less than effortlessly elegant mixing floaty bohemian fabrics, striking white tops and lots of embellished detail to rock a summertime look all year round.

It suits her so much, people often think she is the elder sister of Assisi, 17, and Amba, 13, rather than their mother.

We caught up with the Balaeriacs based founder of the Jezebel lifestyle brand at the opening of McQueens nightclub in London for a chat about all things fashion. Right now she is showing off a look that will take you from day to night and perfect for long summer days.

A white top with sparkle detail is subtle enough for daywear if the sequins are kept to a minumum but also cool for nights out, espeically when teamed with sequin sandals.

Our pick of the women’s tops at Very include this South circular hem sequin top

We also like the South embellished tunic

But on occasions when you do want to make a bit of effort, try this Trinny and Susannah gold trim puffball dress

So what else does Jade recommend this spring / summer?

Qs: What is the favourite item in your wardrobe right now?

“It depends on the occasion. If I’m chilling then I do like a tracksuit. If I’m in public then jeans.”

Qs: How do you fit fashion into everything else you do as a working mum and businesswoman?

“My philosophy is that as you get older you know what suits you. Trust your instincts. There is nothing worse than mutton dressed as lamb.

QS: How do you stay in shape?

“I do a lot of yoga.Maybe that’s why I like tracksuits so much but I also do it in shorts.”

Qs: How would you sum up your style?

Tribal chic with a hippy edge. I love bright prints and the more bangles the better.”

Qs: Finally, is it cooler to wear a bikini or a one piece on the beaches of Ibiza this summer?

“All the stylish people are wearing cut-out one-piece swimsuits right now. But go with whatever you feel comfortable in.”
