An Outfit That Makes You Relax

Fashion influencer Soraya Bakhtiar says: "My pj's because I know that when they next come on, I'm about to sleep or relax. I usually wear Olivia von Halle's silk pyjama set or lately have been wearing some from & Other Stories' capsule collection."

A Simple Outfit You Can Always Rely On

Influencer Monikh Dale says her happy outfit is: "A loose but perfectly half-tucked white T-shirt with a pair of hip-hugging, straight-leg cropped jeans (Re/Done are incredible) and a simple pair of flats—sexy and minimal all the way."

An Outfit With A Sentimental Story

TV presenter and style icon Laura Jackson says of her happy outfit: "My vintage racing green Gucci suit always makes me happy! My husband bought me it from a vintage market in Paris, and it transports me back to that magical city every time I put it on. It's a suit that will stand the test of time."

An Outfit That Feels Different Every Time You Wear It

Olivia Cantillon, co-founder and director of OwnTheLook.com, says: "What makes me happiest when putting a look together is when a piece offers multiple ways to be worn. My favourite styling formula is wearing a dress three ways—on its own and fabulous, with a jumper over the top for off-duty cool and with a white shirt layered underneath for 'girl boss' feels. Not only are your looks ultra stylish, but you're earning major points on the cost-per-wear front."
