  • "Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury,” says Tamara Capel-Wilson, quoting her less-is-more muse Chanel.

While running errands on a cold Saturday afternoon, Tamara Capel-Wilson, 37, was sporting an outfit that managed to be elegant, comfortable, stylish, and warm all at the same time. “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it’s not luxury,” she says, quoting her less-is-more muse Coco Chanel. “It’s all about my outerwear and shades.”

In true Chanel fashion, Capel-Wilson, an entrepreneur behind the online girls' clothing boutique Blu Mitten, considers her style “casual chic”: “I’m a dress-and-sneakers type of gal. In the evening you will catch me wearing heels and denim with a beautiful blouse. I love clothes with clean lines, structured handbags, and jewelry. And I don’t leave home without my shades!”
