Name: Jess Congreve How old are you? 27 Where do you live: Brighton What do you do? I’ve been working as a support worker for homeless young women and am about to start a postgraduate diploma in counselling.

What Jess is wearing Watch: £19, from Urban Outfitters Necklace: a gift, from Urban Outfitters Rucksack: £10, from Route One Skate Shop Top: £10, H&M Jeans: £29.99, H&M Sandals: £8, Primark Jess’s style: Jess says: “I’ve developed my own style from various fashion blogs, such as Coco’s Tea Party and Style Bubble. I like the tomboy look and often wear shirts or sci-fi prints (I have a lovely collection of Star Wars T-shirts from Comic Con!) I love bright colours, hence the bright green rucksack, and don’t mind colours clashing a bit. I’m also a big fan on the skater look, especially skirts and dresses. I’m learning to skate at the moment but it's taking me a while to master going in a straight line. The great think about fashion when you get older is that you can draw inspiration from past times. So for me, it’s the 90s, remembering what I wore growing up.”
