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 Vanessa Hudgens

While Vanessa Hudgens will always be famous for being one of the leading stars of the High School Musical franchise, she has done enough since that time – embarrassing online episodes aside – to be recognised as one of the hottest young stars around.

Not only does her career continue to grow but she hasn’t fallen into the typecast “princess” role that many thought she might have done after HSM. The transition from child star to adult leading lady is always easier when you don’t have to reinvent yourself!

One area where Vanessa certainly doesn’t need any help with reinventing is her style. Learning how to dress like Vanessa Hudgens is kind of like an art form- seriously, she’s either super over accessorized or very laid back with her dress sense!

Here’s how you can get the look for yourself…

Casual Clash

Vanessa is the master of taking a casual look and making it look super cool with accessories aplenty. This quality shouldn’t be understated; it means you can wear whatever you want and get away with it, on any occasion, because you’re always dressing outfits up rather than dressing yourself down.
