Festival fashion with a difference from Coachella

Coachella is that festival that will all wish we could go to. Taking place every year, it is the festival that the celebrity fashionista’s love, the one with the glorious weather, the one with no mud, the one where you can actually wear white. It combines sunshine, music, great clothes, pool parties, celebrity launches and lots of glamour. Yes, it is the one festival you can enjoy even if you hate tents!

I have been looking at all the outfits from this year’s festival and have chosen my favourite looks. Admittedly, some of these looks were seen at the events that surround Coachella – I doubt very much that Dita’s Art Deco inspired look even had a sniff of a band, and there are no Kendall Jenner looks either. The person who, for me, dominates the best dressed parade from Coachella this year has to be Alexa Chung, who shows that this year’s 70s trend translates so well into stylish and unique festival wear, and is about more than suede skirts and fringes.

Get the LFW look with the ASOS Daily Edit

With London Fashion Week in full swing, ASOS has been bringing us the best picks for what to wear to be front row ready. Each day, ASOS personal stylist, and admitted trendaholic Megan Ellaby has been bringing us a daily edit from the voluminous ASOS ranges, and edit that offers cool pieces that would not look out-of-place at London Fashion Week.

It seems that Megan is totally on the ball when it comes to her choices, as some of the styles are very similar to those being worn to the most exclusive shows this season. Model Laura Bailey has been photographed wearing mannish pieces, wide leg trousers and men’s style shirts on the front row, a departure from her usual feminine style. Coats are a big story,  and while I’m not sure that it has been cold enough for the styles worn by Daisy Lowe and Jade Parfitt, I think these are great pieces to be adding to your upcoming Winter Wardrobe.

My current style crush, Poppy Delavingne shows how I slogan sweatshirt can be made evening ready. She adds a beautiful feathered skirt and glossy bag to turn something you might usually wear with jeans into a statement piece. I have to say I love the ‘sorry not sorry’ version from the ASOS range.

ASOS are proving that you don’t have to be at London Fashion Week to get the ‘London Look.’

Celebrity get the look with Jessica Alba, Daisy Lowe and Jourdan Dunn

The start of a new month, and a gloriously sunny day, no wonder this edition of celebrity get the look has so many items that are just screaming out my favourite word “Summer”. There are footwear looks from Ugg Australia that were all seen at the recent Coachella festival, including Jourdan Dunn showing how boots can still be made springlike if you teamed them with pretty shorts (her complete outfit is from Topshop if that also takes your fancy). Model Chloe Nygard takes those hen night glitter faves and makes them festival friendly – possible due to the teaming with multi-coloured hair and very quirky shorts. And Coachella DJ Daisy Lowe wears my personal faves, the ultra wedge Lucy sandals.

Taylor Swift spotted in Liberty

Taylor got this gorgeous Liberty print tote on a trip to London – she hasn’t been spotted out and about with it  yet, but I’m sure this is just a matter of time…

In other Liberty news, the fabulous Vera Farmiga was spotted wearing a shirt made from Liberty fabric in the recent series of Pyscho. Vera plays Norma Bates in the series and has been winning series acting plaudits for her role. I love this particular print and thinks she looks particularly lovely in this look. In other episodes she has also sported Liberty print lookalikes from J Crew.

Louise Thompson in Honor Gold

A celebrity post can’t pass by without an appearance from at least one of the Made in Chelsea ladies. This time it is the lovely Louise, still one of my fave Chelsea girls. She appeared in the ball segment of the last episode in a stunning black backless dress from Honor Gold. The black is still available, but I totally love the vibrant colour of the new coral version. There is also a short version if you prefer a more flirty look.

Billie Piper wears Birkenstocks

I asked on Twitter last week if Birkenstocks were having a moment…and this is the image that prompted the question. I actually love everything that Billie is wearing in this picture – although I have to admit that sandals and a winter style coat are not necessarily the most obvious fashion bedfellows. But Birkenstocks have long been something that I think are a summer essential, and white is just the freshest option. Perfect for summer in the city, and sitting around the swimming pool.

Amy Childs for Dorothy Perkins

Ex-TOWIE star Amy Childs has just launched her first collection for Dorothy Perkins, and it is full of lovely dresses and jumpsuits that are just lovely for special occasions. As you would expect, there is a lot of lace and figure hugging designs, but the dresses are also surprisingly demure, and very pretty.
