Style Diary: Radio host and Snapchat sensation Doireann Garrihy showcases her colourful, laid-back wardrobe
We got the lowdown on radio host and Snapchat sensation Doireann Garrihy's most-loved pieces in her wardrobe.
How would you describe your personal style?
Ninety per cent of the time my style is very laid back. I love a good pair of jeans, a blouse or jumper and comfy flats - sliders or espadrilles in summer or boots in winter. Working in radio is great in that way, you don't need to fret about your work clothes! When I do get dolled up I go hell for leather. All out! I love floaty, shift style dress, playsuits and co-ords. If I'm going to a formal event, I'll always look out for a suit rather than a full length dress. They're so comfortable but still chic.
How long does it take you to get ready every day?
It depends on what I have going on. If I'm heading into Spin 1038, where I work on the Zoo Crew, I'll throw on jeans, a top, runners, a bit of slap and be out the door in 15 minutes. If I'm going somewhere nice, I've been known to take up to two hours to get ready. Usually I'll have my outfit ready to go, but will take my time curling my hair and putting on makeup. You can't rush liquid eyeliner. It senses your panic!
What are your essential wardrobe items?
A pair of River Island Molly jeans, a black Zara blazer, a black clutch bag for nights out and barely there black sandals.
What are your three desert island essentials?
Flip flops, a big floppy hat to keep my skin looking young (although no one else would be looking at me!) and of course, a bikini. I'm ever so practical!
Who is your biggest style influence?
I love a cross between Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton. Holly always looks so classy and nails an old Hollywood glamour look. I love that she wears loads of clothes from the high street too. Fearne is the epitome of cool. She's never afraid to mix different prints and bold colours. Outside of those two, I get loads of ideas from the discover feed on Instagram!
What is the best purchase you ever made?
An oversized denim jacket from Topshop about 5 years ago. In summer I throw it on over anything and everything. Then in winter, it's big enough to fit a cosy knit under. No brainer!
What is the most indulgent purchase you ever made?
On a recent trip to Barcelona, I bought a Pinko bag that I've had my eye on since February. There's no better feeling than buying something you've wanted for ages and put a few bob aside for. Finally getting your hands on it is the sweetest thing!
What is your go-to store?
Zara. My love affair with the place will never end!
