Style Crush: Lily Collins

I have a style crush on Lily Collins: she is always so on trend whether she’s on the red carpet or strolling around London and NYC. Lily is definitely a fan of high-end designer labels; she looks flawless wearing Chanel, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana. Although, Lily also knows that the high-street fashion can be equally as stylish and she can often been seen wearing items from Zara and Topshop. I love Lily’s classic style with a modern twist. She knows what styles work for her but isn’t afraid to take risks with fashion. Lily is a new style crush of mine and she’s definitely one to watch- her style is incredible.

If you read Our Dreams of Fashion often, you’ll know how much I love monochrome. It’s seriously one of my favourite trends of the year. It’s such a gorgeous and timeless trend. I love, love, love Lily’s take on the monochrome trend. This whole outfit is so on point and epitomises Lily’s style: classic yet modern. The leather jacket and flounced hem skirt combination is perfect: a quirky, feminine twist on masculine tailoring (and you all know how much I love tailoring). Lily finishes the look with ankle boots, a quilted Chanel shoulder bag and sunglasses. This look is one of my favourite looks from Lily: simply stunning.

Lily loves Zara- who doesn’t?! Lily looks incredible in this Zara camel-coloured wool blazer coat. A camel coat is definitely on my wish list this month: it really is an autumn must-have. Lily shows how effortlessly chic a classic camel coat can be and it can be styled with almost anything.

I definitely think Lily and I are style twins: we both love wearing black. I, like Lily, have really pale skin and dark-brown hair and I love wearing dark colours to accentuate my features. I love how simple this look is. Again, Lily is wearing a gorgeous Zara coat. Seriously, how incredible are Zara coats?! I am also a massive fan of the monochrome jumper (naturally). The fashion lesson to be learned from Lily’s look: never underestimate how stylish a simple outfit can be.

Lily can also be very daring with her fashion choices and this bright magenta Osman co-ord is definitely no exception. Oh, I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this outfit… I need it in my wardrobe. The cut of this co-ord is perfect- the sleeves are fabulous! But this outfit is all about the colour and what a colour it is! I also have to mention how flawless Lily’s makeup is here: I love how she is wearing a paler pink lip (it looks like Mac Snob) to really emphasise the colour of co-ord.

No one does Hollywood glamour with a modern and unique twist quite like Lily. This Valentino Couture dress that she wore to the Met Ball is gorgeous. I love the romantic style of this high-necked, long sleeved sheer dress. It just shows how versatile Lily’s style can be. 

Do you love Lily's style?
