Fashion Tips From Hot New Girlband Parade

New five piece girlband Parade have supported Shakira, Shayne Ward and Alexandra Burke and they’re now ready for their own chance in the spotlight.

The lovely ladies, who are signed to Universal Records offshoot Asylum Records, turned up for the launch of Pixie Lott’s new collection for Lipsy looking a million dollars.

Each of the girls has their own individuality and quirky style, meaning that together they ooze independence and feistiness. You won’t find these girls listening to orders about what to wear.

They also have strong opinions about fashion as Very exclusively found out when we interviewed them. You can watch our exclusive video chat with Parade below.

Did you notice Sian saying she was a fan of online shopping? She clearly has great taste!

So what are Parade doing to ensure they get noticed? Their first album will be out on 14 November – eight months after they released their debut single Louder.

Louder reached number 10 in the charts, which was pretty incredible for a band’s debut single, and with experience of playing live shows ths summer their album is expected to do much better.

On top of this they’ve been nominated for best breakthrough act at the UK Festivals Awards. The future is definitely bright for this hard-working girl band. And talking of brights, if you like Sian’s red vest and skirt outfit then you can find something similar at Very. Or if Bianca’s monochrome and denim combination is more your style, then Very can help there too.

For a similar look to Sian, start with a red vest. The Savoir pleat detail vest is available in a variety of colours and you can get 3 for 2 at Very.

It looks lovely with a flowing skirt like the Full Circle miro belted skirt

Add some fringed shoes like the Diesel Jesse fringe ankle boots

And finish with a Parade style headscarf like the silk dogtooth check scarf

For a t-shirt like Bianca’s try the Bench loose fit t-shirt

Add the South denim shorts

And accessorise with a cute clutch bag like the mini mock croc bag

We expect to see a lot more of Parade as their album is released and enters the charts. Wonder if we’ll see a top five? Hope so! x
