In a trial, small details can be telling. The same is true of Tonii Roulston’s fashion choices. She always wears a rectangular jade necklace after a spiritualist told her green would help open her heart chakra, allowing her to connect with people. “Whether it works or not, I don’t know, but it helps remind me to open up to what you’re saying,” she says. “We think too much with our heads and not with our hearts and [that] is where we connect.”
As a managing partner at Roulston Urquhart Criminal Defence Firm, Roulston dresses to reflect confidence and personal expression. The former blue-banged, pierced-all-over student is now a sartorially savvy lawyer taking inspiration from British Vogue and Vogue Italia, as well as street style. When Roulston puts on a Dolce & Gabbana suit, paired with Prada shoes and a Gucci briefcase, she exudes the self-assuredness her work requires. Outside of work, whether dining out or attending events like Parkluxe, you’ll see her in a Gucci flare-leg pantsuit, or a Valentino dress with McQueen shoes.
