Amy is the most tireless humans we may have ever come across - she never seems to stand still, and continues to take on new projects. If she admitted that she has a team of 25, we'd finally be able to understand, but she doesn't. Based in Los Angeles, Amy founded Fashion Tap before anyone was even thinking about being able to shop straight from Instagram posts, and she produces mountains of truly wonderful content on all relevant platforms... everyday! Always the subject, she has more looks than Christmas has tinsel, and is constantly engaging. Web: Amy Roiland

1. What’s an accessory that you’re particularly keen on this Spring?

SH: Bandanas. They already made their comeback last year, but this year fashion brands have restyled them in fresh new ways. Break away from the paisley and go for a fresher print!

2. What’s something we’ll see more of on the street this Spring that might surprise people?

SHEven more muted desert tones and oversized silhouettes. Street style seems to have started this trend, but it's taken over the New York Runways as well!

3. What’s your preference on what to do with, or how to wear a bandana?

SHI like to wear them around my neck, using a leather cuff to secure it (instead of knotting it).

4. What’s your most reliable Spring piece or accessory that you’ve kept going back to over the years?

SHMy black wide-brimmed fedora. It instantly adds sophistication to any look and I always get compliments on it. Paired with a statement shoe, you can practically get away with wearing anything, because it pulls the look together.

5. A piece of advice for people looking at, or adding to their Spring wardrobe?

SHDon't be afraid of playing around with Spring trends and making it your own. Go for thick stripes over thin ones, be easy on the floral, and lastly, go big with colour! Try to find timeless pieces you'll wear for years to come.
