Who run the world? Girls, obvs.
With 8th March celebrating International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day just round the corner (in the UK), it’s the perfect time to give a shout out to my favourite females be it in music, film or fashion. These are just some of the leading ladies who I look to for a daily dose of style inspo.
Creative Director & President of J.Crew
What successful, aspirational and influential looks like, not to mention super style icon. Jenna’s career ascent is one every budding fashion careerist should read up about. My favourite article on Jenna is this one from Fast Company written in 2013.
Model and Singer
The enfant terrible of the modelling world, I adore Sky’s multi-faceted looks going from goth to grunge to glam and back round again – she pulls it off every time, and brings her savvy style to the music world too.
Singer & Songwriter
Lights’ many solo albums are a shining example of her wonderful songwriting, synth and guitar abilities, but it was her haunting support vocals featured on British metalcore band, Bring Me The Horizon’s 2010 release, There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There Is a Heaven Let’s Keep It A Secret. for their track, “Don’t Go”, that has got me absolutely hooked. She’s got an angelic voice that lends itself perfectly to her own brand of edgy pop down to the heaviest of heavy metal tunes.

The metallics trend is never too far away, and SS14 happily champions this shining staple yet again. From foil prints, molten metal finishes to frosted pigments and holographic hues, metallics have a way of being rather season-less, working as a standalone statement or as an accent to an existing trend. No matter how you want to embrace it, the good news is what ever piece you invest in now, know that it will be a keeper.

Opt for barely there metallics for a frosted, feminine flair.
