It may be summer but check out the outfit Ellie Goulding wore to the recording studio this week (above). We’re not meant to wear jumpers in summer but we’re not really having a traditional summer, are we? Although there’s been some sunny spells, it’s not at all consistent and sometimes it feels like we’re in dull windy Autumn.
But enough moaning! Ellie still looks fabulous in her jumper and is a great example of how you can make the weather work for you. It’s tempting to wear black to mourn the lack of sun but Ellie is defiant in a white skirt and an embellished jumper. She’s got a lot more confident over the past year and I’m not surprised as everything seems to be falling into place for her. Settled in her relationship with McBusted’s Dougie Poynter, her career is going from strength to strength. There are rumours she has just recorded the theme tune for the new James Bond movie, Sceptre, and as she left the recording studio in this eye-catching outfit and posted the look to her Instagram she’s hinting that it’s all true and she’s proud of it. If you want to walk loud and proud like Ellie this summer, whatever the weather, then a similar skirt with buttons is the River Island boucle pelmet mini skirt. This works perfectly with an embellished cream jumper like the South jewel neck jumper, which is cosy but with a fashion forward edge. Ellie loves her black ankle boots and you can get a pair just like hers at Very with the Dune petrie leather ankle boots.
Ellie is big on accessories and I’ve noticed that she always wears rings. It doesn’t matter if you’re holding a microphone or giving a presentation – rings liven up any outfit. I’m loving the Hot Diamonds sterling sliver ring and the Little Mistress sterling silver Love ring.
