Do you have any shopping rituals?

When I shop, I go by three questions before I buy anything. Do I love it? Do I need it? Will I wear it?

Please describe your style in three words.

Boyish, Scandinavian (though I am not), and uncomplicated.

What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?

Not using a mirror.

Sabrina Meijer

What are your favourite fabrics?

Washed silk, denim and cotton.

Are there any style combinations that you object to?

As long as it's balanced out and doesn't feel too put together, I guess I am okay with just about anything.

Which city has the best-dressed women?

A mix of Copenhagen and Stockholm would leave me the most inspired.

Would you say that you are conservative or bold?

Can I be exactly in between?

What are the rules in the way you dress?

Feel comfortable.

Celebrities and style...

Is something I do not really keep track of.

Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of?

Men's shirts.

A woman should always look like...

Herself and full of confidence.

Who taught you what you know about style?

The Internet?

How do you select your clothing every morning?

I start with one item that I feel like wearing and work my way around it.

Sabrina Meijer

What is your biggest regret?

Fashion-wise? My Givenchy boots and not getting into photography at an earlier stage.

The three essential things a woman should know about style are...

How to rock a dress code, how to find your own style and how to keep a mix of things affordable and desirable.

We will never see you wearing...

A short skirt with heels and a crop top.

Which new designers do you follow and why?

Is J.W. Anderson still considered new? I love his new take on things; everything he does just feels so fresh. I also love Tome and 1205.

Who is the most stylish person you have ever seen?

Probably Ada Kokosar and my good friend Nicole Huisman.

Sabrina Meijer

What is the first thing you notice on a woman?

Her shoes (haha, I'm sorry I am this shallow).

What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?

Céline heels, a black suit from Maison Martin Margiela, a light blue shirt by Rika and a blue skirt by Marni.

The one image that defined your approach to style...

I cannot really pick one.

Which fashion house never fails to impress you?

The Row and Dries Van Noten. Also Céline, but it is kind of a cliché now, isn't it?

One article of clothing that a woman needs to pay close attention to is...

A pair of jeans. They can be either so good or so wrong.

Is comfort an enemy of style?

I don't think so. I would even say being and feeling comfortable is the number one thing you should take care of first.

Who would you like to recommend for My Style?

Rinke Tjepkema, Nicole Huisman, and Jayne Min.

The best words of advice you have ever heard?

If you can dream it, you can do it.
