We sat down with the David Jones ambassador to talk trends, designers and the items on high rotation in her wardrobe.

The trends I'm loving these season...

Men's styling and suiting. I love the Country Road outfit that I wore in the campaign - it's a chunky oversized knit sweater, a big trench coat, trousers and a pair of brogues. Saint Laurent, Camilla & Marc, Bassike and Ellery are all doing the man-style trend really well. And Carla Zampatti is doing these really cool flared pants and big fur coats, which I love.

My favourite Australian designers are...

Bassike, Ellery, Michael Lo Sordo, Dion Lee and Strateas Carlucci, who recently won the Woolmark prize.

Internationally, I love...

 Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Celine, Chloe and Lanvin.

This season, I'll be buying...

A Saint Laurent trench, Saint Laurent leather jacket and leather sneakers, and the Bassike pinstripe trouser pants (they're really cool for every day) and an Equipment button-up shirt.

My personal style icons are...

Kate Moss, Carine Roitfeld, Monica Bellucci, Emmanuelle Alt, Quentin Jones.

My go-to outfit is...

My Bassike [pinstripe] pants, a button-up Equipment shirt and my Saint Laurent leather jacket. I feel like if I throw my leather jacket or trench over anything it will work with jeans or a shirt, or a t-shirt. I love IRO, J Brand or Rag&Bone jeans.

Jess' wardobe essentials:

Bag: Valentino,  I also have a Fendi clutch for when I'm going out in the evening - it looks sharp, clean and polished.

Coat: Saint Laurent leather biker jacket.

T-shirts: IRO and Jac+Jack - they do beautiful linen T-shirts which fall beautifully on the body. I also bought a couple of men's Jac+Jack T-shirts because I like the oversized look.

Jeans: Frame and J Brand. I've got these J Brand black ones with rips in them that I wear every day - they're so comfortable.

Sweaters: Jac+Jack  and Acne cashmere sweaters in grey, black, white, navy.

Underwear: Bonds cotton briefs for everyday and Calvin Klein for something a bit more sexy. I hate underwire, I prefer a soft lace triangle cup.

Watch: Rolex, they're my favourite. I've got one that I've had for 8 years and a two-tone rose gold and stainless steel one that I got a year ago and I recently got a yellow gold Daytona.

Sunglasses: Usually Céline, but I recently got some Bailey Nelson ones.

Jess glasses

Perfume: I wear the one from Hôtel Costes in Paris - from the little perfume store on the right. It's their botanical house fragrance.

Heels: I swear to god, I give them all equal love! My top three: Saint Laurent white pumps, black Valentino Rockstud pumps and Louis Vuitton leopard print pumps.

I can't live without: My MacBook Air, iPhone, music, my headphones - I like the little Apple pods because you can just shove them in your bag and they're not too heavy. And I can't travel without my Louis Vuitton wheeler in the men's monogram.

Travel candles: Maison D'Amore.   

Beauty products: SK-II face masques and Papaw cream.

Jewellery: Cartier Love Bracelet in gold with diamonds and a gold pinkie Cartier ring which I never take off.  My girlfriend Nicole Trunfio gave me a beautiful Trunfio Universe and ring that she made for my birthday.

On my bedside table: A little bouquet of white roses in a vase, a candle, Kikki.K diary amethyst and rose quartz crystals and a little rose quartz angel that my best friend gave me in Byron that I take everywhere with me.
