Get the celebrity look with Alexa Chung, Lilah Parsons and Lydia Bright

It seems like an age since I have posted a celebrity looks piece, so I am now addressing the balance by featuring some of my favourite celebrity styles that you can find currently on the High Street, or online.

First up we have that (now infamous) suede skirt that seemed to simultaneously kick start the current 1970s trend and offer the promise of saving M&S for another season when it was worn by Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung. It is now available in store, but doesn’t come cheap at almost £200 (it is totally divine though, it has to be said.) But, with the price in mind, I am also offering a much cheaper, faux suede version which is pretty gorgeous in it’s own right.

This weekend saw the wedding of Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan, and so I’m bringing you a couple of pieces from Michelle’s range for Lipsy. The 2-in-1 Cami dress is a gorgeous piece that is subtlety sexy, Michelle has been seen out and about in a white version which I can’t find online, but I have featured the nude and the navy versions – both lovely.  I have also featured another piece from Michelle’s collection – the embroidered maxi. This is a beautiful dress that Michelle proved was red carpet ready, and would make a very stylish prom dress for those avoiding meringue. I love that Michelle is wearing her collection out and about, the pieces are proving to be stylish and understated, and very, very wearable.

Lydia Bright was my best dressed at Michelle and Mark’s wedding this weekend, wearing a 1950s inspired skirt and top from Coast. I also loved the shoes – are they the famous Manolos that Carrie left in the closet in the first Sex and the City movie?

Lilah Parsons is also having a little Coast love affair at the moment. And why not? She wears the range so well and looks just amazing in the colour clash Leta Maxi dress. I also love the fun stripes of the Ellie May mini, another lovely Coast dress that Lilah just rocks.

We also have style for the men, with Roger Taylor from Duran Duran wearing the tt4js labradorite and Swarovski crystal skull bracelet at the launch of the Careless Memories photo exhibition in Birmingham in April.

Festival styling by Boden

If I’m being truly honest, Boden would not necessarily be the first place I would look for festival friendly clothing. It doesn’t immediately spring to mind when you think of Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Ellie Goulding style Glastonbury wear. But this is the season that Boden has emerged as a new contender for festival fashion, with an eclectic collection just released that is dedicated to pieces that will look perfectly at home in a muddy field this summer. With pieces christened ‘Boho’ ‘Festival’ and ‘Glastonbury’, Boden has definitely got caught up in the summer music mood.

Classic Festival style

Boden has taken the elements of classic festival style, and has given them the Boden twist. This means there are hot pants, but with a Boden print rather than plain denim. There are cute printed vests that will contrast nicely with jeans or a denim skirt. There are animal print short wellies, these will practically go with whatever you choose to wear. And there are the usual raft of florals, items that every year we say are unsuited to a muddy field, but then marvel at the sheer style and bravery of the celeb wearing them (think Kelly Osbourne or Nicola Roberts in a tea dress, or Katy Perry at Coachella virtually every year.)

Get designer looks from Asda George this Spring

The new season from supermarket giant George at Asda seems to have a distinctly designer flavour.

Full of gorgeously girlie sorbet shades, this collection is simply full of pieces that bring to mind the pretty collection that Burberry sent down the catwalk last Autumn for S/S 14. That collection, if you recall, was full of beautiful lace and sheer fabrics, in soft pinks, mint greens and lavenders. The look was one that was surprisingly covered up, shirts were buttoned up to the neck, skirts were midi length and there were some fantastic coats and jackets, all in the most ice cream of colours. Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn rocked this look on the catwalk, and fashionista’s like Alexa Chung and Paloma Faith have since shown this it not only gorgeous, it is actually wearable too.

80a02d62c69adbdd4bed1bf966e21fe5A collection so wearable and pretty was bound to be a strong influence on the ranges on offer on the High Street, and I have been particularly impressed with how supermarket range George has interpreted the look to make it both fashionable and affordable. With an emphasis on the buttoned up shirts in sheer fabrics, and the jackets that are still needed in the early chill of Spring, George has captured the style that has made this such a popular Catwalk collection.
