Style Watch – Mickey from Love 

Ah, love. Who doesn’t need some love in their life? So who doesn’t need some Netflix Love in their life? The answer, nobody! Because Love – Judd Apatow’s new comedy – is bloody awesome. I have a big love – heart? – shaped hole in my life after binging on season one and two. Figurativing, that is. Gus is adorable. I want Bertie to be my best friend. And I’m very eager to find out if Witchita will be given the green light for another season. But most of all, I need more of Mickey’s outfit inspiration. Carhartt overalls anyone? Yes, ME please!

She rocks contemporary vintage like a pro. Baseball jackets, mini skirts with rocker boots and all those great t-shirts. Oh the t-shirt. The costume designer for the show describes Mickey’s style as “hungover Alexa Chung” which is a great description and an even better muse. There have been a few stand out moments for Mickey; the red swimsuit with jeans, the carhartt overalls – which are actress Gillian Jabob’ s own – the silver slip dress, the Modern Vice boots and the Yankees baseball jacket. Like any good wardrobe choices in a TV show or movie, I believe Mickey and what she wears. Her style adds so much to the overall character, authentic, like popular style choices today – I’ve got similar biker boots, a baseball jacket, an army jacket, overalls and many worn t-shirts! She’s cool without being try hard, you know she does like fashion, but is not a slave to it. In short, I Love her. Single white female anyone?

To get the look, hit up your local vintage stores and head to Modern Vice for some killer boots. If you haven’t watched the show yet, hurry up!

Trend Watch: Black Loafers

bll16

Thankfully, for our lovely feet and growing bunions, flat shoes have become a fashion staple over the last few years. It started with stylish trainers worn outside the gym, matched with skirts and suits worn in the office by day and onto the nightclub by night. And in 2016 when the Gucci loafer – in particular the sling back with fur lining – was worn by every blogger and editor worth their street style salt, we became totally obsessed with this chic shoe. And sure why wouldn’t we? They are comfy, versatile and add instant cool girl chic to any outfit. If you can’t afford the Gucci price tag head to Office or Topshop for some great styles. (FYI, you can get 25% off in Office if you pick up this week’s issue of Grazia UK). Wear with pleated skirts, trouser suits, and mom jeans for that Instagram worthy shot. Wear with whatever you want if you’re not on Instagram.
