Idle Lane

Dancer, model and blogger Danielle Peazer of IdleLane.com is our September Style Blogger Council member ready to get judging your style in the fashionista style stakes this month! Find out about what trends she’ll be rocking this season, which may pop-megastar is following her on Twitter and what she thinks makes people stand out from the crowd, to see if you can catch her eye on the Shopcade app!

What’s on your shopping list this season?

Moving into A/W I’m on the look out for cosy knitwear, it’s so vital when the weather gets colder!

What do you think is the thing that makes people’s style really stand out?

I think people’s style stands out when they’re truly comfortable in what they’re wearing and are happy in their outfit. It’s an added confidence that comes naturally.

What trends, if any are you loving this season?

I’ve loved the amount of lace overlays that have been on trend. I’ve got a few pieces and they always catch my eye when I’m out shopping.

Who are your fave designers?

I love Reformation and Sandro but for high end designers as well as Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Burberry for their leather jackets!

Best high street brands?

I’m a massive fan of Zara and Topshop. I also love Monki and love to shop online at Missguided and Asos.

Whose style do you admire?

I love Ashley Madekwe’s style and Naya Riviera’s sharp look that she always has. I love Vanessa Hudgens and wish I could pull off the boho look as well as she does!

Have you ever had a fashion faux pas?

I’ve had a few yeah! I used to own this faux fur leopard print coat that didn’t suit me at all but I tried to make it work – I looked terrible!

What’s your favourite piece in your wardrobe atm?

I recently bought a linen mac from Zara. It’s calf length and I loved it so much in beige that I bought the exact same one in black!

What item could you not live without? Fashion/Beauty item…

I couldn’t live without my Mac lip conditioner – it’s better than Vaseline but not as sticky as lip gloss. And it comes in a few different shades too.

How to Dress Like Selena Gomez

Ok, we admit it. We have a massive style crush on Selena Gomez right now. Whilst other celebs have come and gone, Selena’s always managed to stay one step ahead of the fashion crowd with a on trend look that’s totally her own.

While Justin Bieber fans might not like her, the more rational girls around the world love her unmistakable sense of style.  Youthful, elegant, and always gorgeous, the Selena Gomez look is one that girls everywhere can rock.

Red Carpet Inspirations

The big problem (or opportunity) with celeb styling is that they are always seen in something different, so we’ll start on the red carpet for Selena.

High waist midi skirts are commonly seen on Selena at big events, and there are several different types available for you to rock the look you love irrespective of your budget.  Make like Selena and team a midi with a bralet, for a glam yet casual style, finishing the look with high heels so you can strut your stuff figuratively and literally, whatever the occasion.  Selena prefers black, but pick the colour that best suits you and match it with a small clutch bag. If you’d prefer the single dress look then glam it up with dresses perfect for the red carpet.
