This Wednesday I am wishing for these additions from the fantastic ASOS sale – grab yourself a wardrobe bargain now!
Here in the UK we have been delighted with the sun over the long Easter weekend. However, whilst looking through the numerous articles and online pictures of the celebs soaking up the Coachella rays, we should not blame ourselves for feeling a pang of jealously! We may not be able easily experience the LA desert heat, but we can certainly get ourselves ready for the festival season. Here is my round up of the best celeb must have’s from Coachella and some hints at where to steal their style!
Let’s start with Queen B herself who made a surprise appearance! Beyonce swung and sung her way through her sister Solange’s performance of “Losing You” and looked cool and colourful whilst doing so!
The print is wonderful on this skirt and top combo (its all about the combo’s at the moment!) and the unique cut on the top I love – a little bit different from the usual crop tops that we see in stores and online at the moment. A slick finish with the pointed ankle boots and the simple fedora make this outfit standout whislt also managing to steal a little class.
I’ve found this great flower combo from ASOS; the print has the purple element like Beyonce’s does and I think the cut out detail on the back of the top is a cute little touch. These boots from Kurt Geiger would not only look fantsatic with this outfit but would go with SO much other stuff – And to finish it off – a classic fedora from Topshop!
Moving on to our next lady; Miss Cara Delevingne. Cara is the epitome of carefree and casual dressing – really perfect when you are walking around a desert at a music festival!
I love these red shorts against the aztec style printed top and her black high tops are retro and cool. Teamed with a black accessories – she’s a real cool Coachella babe.
Here are some fantastic online choices to capture Cara’s style; the shorts are a simple but classic style from TOPSHOP whilst the top is a more expensive piece from the Essential Antwerp Beach Collection, a brand that started in – you guessed it – Antwerp, Belgium. You can purchase from the Essentiel Antwerp online store in Euros or from ASOS for a pound purchase. I think these shorts with this tee are a really fantastic duo! For the most comfortable festival shoe, grab yourselves these Nike Dunk Sky Hi Trainers – wear them for a while before you go and your friends will be envious of your blisterless toes! The accessories make this outfit; the watch is special little item from Vivienne Westwood – definitely one for my wish list, the rucksack is from Corsia as is made from such a soft leather that it will get better with age, and the sunglasses are a steal at £12 from ASOS.
Lastly, I have chosen the youngest of the Kardashian Clan – Miss Kylie Jenner. Kylie’s Coachella style is a massive hop, skip and jump away from those of her oldest Kardashian sisters’; weathered demim, studded bumbag and a t-shirt bearing Mr Bowie screams festival cool – perfect for the desert party.
This David Bowie t-shirt is on my list for the festival season for sure and these distressed black denim shorts will be incredibly wearable and are in the ASOS sale. Dorothy Perkins’ version of the classic Chelsea Boot are fantastic and a great purchase for all year round. This Miss Selfridge Camel Fedora is so much like Kylie’s and this choker from Rock ‘N Rose is a wonderful way to feminise this androgynous outfit. For me what makes this outfit, is the quirky bumbag or as they like to say in the US – the fannypack; get this one from the one and only Nasty Gal.
I hope that these outfits can give you some inspiration for the festival season here in the UK! Would love to know what you are wearing!
Happy Festival Season!
This season’s Autumn/Winter saw me looking everywhere for my ideal tartan or checked jacket and before I had finished my search I found this absolute beauty in my mum’s attic! Mondi was formed in 1967 in Germany and was originally just a knitwear house. However it went on to produce a full retail range that marketed it clothing worldwide and was extremely popular in 1970’s and 80’s. I would love to find more Mondi pieces! I love the green velvet detail on the pockets, collar and sleeves, the stand out gold buttons and the statement 80’s shoulder pads!
Here I have teamed the jacket with a favourite pair of Russell and Bromley Boots, a company which always perfectly balances style with quality. The fact that they’re over-the-knee makes for such easy wear too!
I wanted to add a modern twist to this outfit so delved into my wardrobe and found this great Tshirt from Topshop. This was a popular piece when it first hit the shops and I love it when you can revisit items of clothing and take them from one season to another. Check out Topshop’s new season Tshirts here!
I’ve grown very attached to this studded hairslide from ASOS. I find it hard to track down hair accessories that don’t fall apart after a few used but ASOS have a fantastic selection and still have a 70% off sale – make sure you find yourself a bargain!
Hope that everyone is starting to revisit old pieces, locating wonderful finds in their mum’s wardrobes and ReVoguing!
