Steal Her Style: Florence Welsh
Published 17/09/2010 | 09:45
Florence Welch has been one name on everyone’s lips ever since bursting onto the scene with her phenomenal debut album. Her individual style teamed with her flaming hair and her brogue-clad feet, continues to capture fashion spectators around the world.
Florence has such a diverse range of looks from contemporary combos to head-to-toe vintage. She tends to mix conflicting pieces like an evening dress with brogues or a leather jacket with a pretty tea dress and always makes them work. She is a big advocate of textured pieces with lace, leather, ruffles, sheer and silk dominating her look.
Though she loves skirts and dresses she tends to be tomboyish at times. Her look sees a good mix of oversized jackets, Oxford flats, boyfriend jeans and lots of denim on denim.
Florence’s unique look is often credited to the significant presence of vintage pieces in her wardrobe. Whether it’s a head to toe vintage gown, an oversized blouse or an eccentric accessory, her love of all things old is evident in almost every outfit she wears. The key to achieving her look is in the detail. Accessories are a carefully constructed part of her everyday look. She has a penchant for umbrellas and is as famous for her obligatory frilly sock as she is for her music. She favours kooky designs in shades, hats, bags, scarves, belts and jewellery that add to her distinctive look.
