It is fair to say I have come quite late to the phenomenon that is The Only Way is Essex. But, I am now totally addicted to watching this docu-soap that entails the lives, loves and adventures of a group of Essex 20 somethings. And whilst enjoying the voyeuristic look at life around the Sugarhut, I have also become enamoured with the style and wardrobe of one Essex girl. Step forward Lydia Bright.
Now Lydia isn’t your typical TOWIE girl. Rather than the body con Herve Leger styles, Lydia is a total vintage girl at heart. Her wardrobe is full of full length maxi dresses, pretty boho styles and original vintage finds that she often gets from Fashion Bloodhound, the pre-loved vintage site. Lydia is also a huge fan of the High Street, wearing a host of dresses from Peacocks, Yumi and Reiss. She even famously wore the Reiss Shola dress that Kate Middleton wore to meet the Obamas.
Lydia has a forties siren glamour, with tumbling blonde curls and deep red lips that recall Veronica Lake at her peekaboo height. She is a real style icon in the making and is definitely worth watching.
Here are some highlights from a wardrobe worth raiding.
