Liz Truss is a devoted follower of British fashion… Just like her idol Margaret Thatcher

  • Truss, 47, has taken to mirroring Mrs Thatcher’s most talked about outfits
  • Her pencil blue dress in last week’s debate against Sunak cost around £200
  • Truss is also a fan of London designer Winser, high street chains LK Bennett and Whistles, and The Fold

Her idol Margaret Thatcher’s wardrobe was famous for her British designer clothes.

And now future PM Liz Truss is literally following suit – also staying true to British designers as she dresses to impress on her journey to No 10.

Mrs Thatcher’s best-known outfits, including her royal blue crepe suit, were from Aquascutum, a brand she remained loyal to throughout her reign. Ms Truss, 47, often turns to high street chain Karen Millen.

For last week’s BBC debate, she – like Ms Thatcher – opted for a royal blue number, a pencil dress priced at around £200. Also last week, she posed outside the Houses of Parliament in a green number with a gold chained sash.

And the day before she also wore the label, sold by Ms Millen in 2016 – this time an orange dress.

She is also a fan of London designer Winser, wearing their £185 purple Grace Miracle dress as she met Conservative members at Fontwell Racecourse in West Sussex.

Other favorites include the LK Bennett and Whistles retail chains, as well as the new The Fold website.
