For mum, model and presenter Brodie Harper, comfort is imperative when it comes to her personal style. The Victorian-based host of Channel 9’s Postcards and the face of Clarks Shoes says the comfort factor isn’t so much an after-thought, rather, at the fore of her style decisions. “I would describe my personal style as ready to wear and feminine, yet always looking for that comfort factor to chase my daughter around!”

Both a busy home life and fast-paced professional life see Harper seeking comfort when it comes to her footwear choices, something that Clarks offer in abundance. Their new Spring-Summer 2019 collection features elegant flats, sports-luxe sneakers, bold wedges, functional heels and dress shoes all anchored in comfort. In fact, the entire collection features underfoot cushioning and forward-thinking technologies ensuring all-day happy feet while modern designs capture the key trends of the season.

With an unwavering commitment to high-quality, high-end footwear essentials, Clarks has fashioned a versatile range that transitions from work to the weekend in seamless style, and one that Harper is naturally a fan of. As for her favourites? “The Bay Rosie Sandal, the Un Maui Lace and the Trace Drift. All look amazing and are incredibly comfortable…all the things that matter to me!!”

Here, Brodie Harper lets GRAZIA in on what’s most stylishly important to her.

 

How would you describe your personal style?
I would describe my personal style as ready to wear and feminine, yet always looking for that comfort factor to chase my daughter around.

What key pieces do you wear on repeat?
The key pieces I would wear on repeat would have to be my maxi dresses and sandals. With the weather warming up soon and always being in a hurry in the morning, it is so easy to throw on a pretty maxi dress and some nice sandals and you’re out the door.

How does your look change from day to night?
When it comes to changing from my day to night look I still prefer simple and feminine styles but look for sleeker cuts and darker colours. I tend to leave the florals and bright colours to the day.

What are your favourite brands?
Some of my favourite brands are Clarks, Thurley, Jac and Mooki, S/W/F, C/MEO collective and Seed.

What are your favourite shoe styles and why?
My favourite shoe styles would have to be a stylish sandal as they dress up any nice spring/summer outfit, casual slides as they add instant cool to any outfit and are super comfy, sneakers look great with a pair of shorts or jeans and are great for those busy days and every wardrobe needs a pretty heel.

What is your can’t-live-without-shoe and why?
My wardrobe always has to have a nude heel and pretty sandal.

What is your favourite shoe from the Clark’s range and why?
I have a few favourites in the Clarks Spring/Summer 19 woman’s range. The Bay Rosie Sandal, the Un Maui Lace and the Trace Drift. All look amazing and are incredibly comfortable…all the things that matter to me!!
