Get the look: Ellie Goulding

By emilyborrett on August 8th, 2011

For a launch party at Selfridges, Ellie rejected the traditional cocktail dress for a vintage leather jacket with a prim high-necked blouse and hotpants that manages to be cool and sexy at the same time

Seeing the photos of Britain’s own Ellie Goulding performing at the legendary Lollapalooza Festival in the States made us swell up with national pride (which is hard to come by if you’ve been following the news in London for the past couple of days). We haven’t seen many British singers as young and fresh-faced as Ellie be so successful so quickly, so good on the girl.

Not only is the singer-songwriter super-talented but she’s got a sense of style that we really admire; she manages to fly the flag for quirky British style and nail the trends without looking too pretentious or try-hard at all. Whether she’s spotted slouching around London in a baggy T-shirt with skinny jeans or a dress for an awards ceremony, Ellie always pulls it off.

Check out the gallery above for our favourite looks of Ellie’s along with a few high-street pieces that you can use to replicate her style – we even found the actual top that she wore to Coachella this year. Don’t say we’re not good to you.

Gallery: Last-minute summer holiday outfits

Outfit 1. Topshop Blue Peony Print Silk Shorts

For a hot holiday lunch out these elegant high-waisted Topshop shorts are an elegant base to build an outfit.

The end of summer isn’t too far away now, and August is the last month of year where we jet off somewhere far hotter in the hopes of coming back skinnier with a tan. Yesterday I was looking at the fashion dilemmas we face during the summer’s wedding season, but today it’s all about the last-minute holiday.

Normally when I go on holiday I pack my entire wardrobe, only to wear the same thing for the entire week because I’ve realised I hate all my summer clothes. Next time I’ve decided I’m going to invest in a few pieces that will see me right for the week, and be adaptable for different occasions.

The Topshop silk blue shorts in the first outfit above are absolutely perfect. Wear them with a lightweight blouse for European elegance on holiday, or with a tuxedo jacket and heels for parties this Autumn. Another favourite find are the mocha-coloured palazzo pants in outfit number two, which will still be wearable next season. The seventies trend is still going strong!

Check out the gallery above for three ideal holiday outfits.
