STYle crush - Grimes

Since my last post I have mainly been obsessing over this lady..

Grimes AKA Claire Boucher is an amazing musician whose sound is influenced by everything from electronic, pop and rock. She's also amazingly stylish. If I could steal anyones wardrobe right now it would be hers..

To be able to go from effortlessly flawless to all out grunge is a big win in my book. Unfortunately, I cannot master either.. So with a little Grimes inspiration I've been trying to find a few ways to achieve her look.

In the second photo on this page Grimes is wearing an awesome looking oversized t-shirt from Long Clothing.. My favourite of their current collection is this one above for only £35..

An oversized t-shirt + my favourite shape print = Instant Grimes
 If anyone can work a sequined jacket as casual day wear it's Grimes.. And if I had to rely on any online vintage shop to have a choice of sequined jackets it's got to be COW. Take your pick and start scaring the elderly.

When I first saw the picture of Grimes in her Bart Simpson sweatshirt I thought of Lazy Oaf right away.. They have big, bold designs that I definitely think would suit Grimes' style... Check out this skull design shirt or if you fancy staying with the cartoon theme, spend your dollar on their Batman collection!

Is it really a Grimes inspired outfit without a pair of sunglasses? Whatever you think, this is the perfect time to bag yourself a bargain pair.. The sunglasses pictured are only £18.00 from ASOS. Who said sunnies are only for summer?!

To get a proper taste of a bit of Grimes style you only need to watch one of her amazing videos.. This one's my favourite. Enjoy.
