Siomha first caught our eye on Instagram, where she posts snaps of her sumptuous outfits and showcases her Scandi-cool style.

When it comes to her personal style, the 22-year-old favours a mix of relaxed tailoring and oversized shapes to create a fluid silhouette.

“I achieve this by layering clothes of different lengths and shapes over each other,” she tells us.

For inspiration, the Dubliner looks to renowned bloggers such as Leandra Medine, Patricia Mansfield and Pernille Teisbæk. She also sources inspiration in street style and magazines such as The Gentlewoman and Porter.

While there’s still a bitter chill in the air, Siomha can be found rocking oversized coats, ripped denim and boots, but she is definitely looking forward to working some S/S 15 trends into her outfits.

“For the season ahead I will be sticking to my basics like wide leg trousers in cropped lengths paired with longer length light jackets and waistcoats,” she says.

“I’ll also be incorporating elements from the ‘70s style resurgence which is a big trend for spring/summer.”

All clothes, shoes and accessories are Siomha’s own.
