Welcome to our TBCo Looks Good On You Series, a collection of interviews with inspiring people from our TBCo community sharing styling tips for home and fashion, as well as insights into how they "share warmth" with themselves and those they love. From favourite hobbies, to family gatherings, to trips around the world, join us as we find out what tiny things in life give us the same feeling as waking up slowly to sunshine streaming in the window!
This month, we are joined by Charlotte, the fashionable face of @goodmannersstyle. We love Charlotte’s sense of colourful style, and her account is a go-to for when we need some dopamine dressing inspiration. So, settle down with us as we chat to Charlotte about her colourful fashion tips, and find out what brings her joy.
Tell us a little about yourself, we want to know more about you!
Hey I’m Charlotte I’m 38 and have worked in fashion for nearly 20 years! I studied Marketing at uni and then moved to London after graduating to work for Ben Sherman as a Showroom manager! I moved onto Visual Merchandising quite quickly and absolutely loved it! I then worked for Hunter for 5 years before becoming a mummy and setting up my own freelance business! I’ve always loved fashion and putting outfits together, I love how an outfit can really boost your mood and I find it so inspiring seeing what other people wear and put together! I now run my own business which includes content creation and account management within a creative agency.
How would you describe your style?
Fun, casual, oversized and colourful!
We love how you incorporate colourful pieces into your wardrobe - any advice for those who might be a bit nervous about being bold and bright?
I absolutely love colour and don’t feel like me without it incorporated into an outfit! However I totally understand it’s tricky to style colour if it’s not something you find easy, I would say start with having a play with colours you like and feel suit you and then pick one piece in that colour and style around it. For example a bright green bag or pink knit and you can then add your usual denim/ dresses/ trousers / skirts around this item but you have that pop of colour! I also love a bright coat/jacket this is an easy option as it instantly brightens up an outfit without you having to think too much about the style!

The warmer months are here! What top 3 tips would you give our community for styling this season?
I LOVE spring as it always brings so much colour! My top tips for Spring would be wear more colour obvs! I am loving the waistcoat trend and think this is a great piece to get in a nice spring colour as it can be worn over tee’s, dresses, or on its own! Double denim is also having a moment and this is a great look to then add a bright colour accessory to! Crochet is also a big trend this summer and is such a lovely way to add some vibrant colour to an outfit, a crochet / knitted bag is a great option!
Do you have a favourite TBCo. product? How would you wear it?
What does the phrase ‘share warmth’ make you think of?
For me it’s kindness and love, it makes me think of family and friends I love and feeling happy and loved. I also always try to ensure my content is friendly and shows warmth. I never take myself too seriously, wear what I love and feel comfortable and good in!
