MUSIC VIDEO MONDAY
I have decided to stay true to my word and keep posting more often and different style posts! Despite my lazy personality!
So I wanted to share with you one of my favourite things to do and where I get some of my style inspiration from and if you hadn’t already guessed from the title, its music videos! I spend quite a lot of time on vevo.com watching artists new releases and it excites me to see what concepts most of them have come up to match their music.
Most of the time it will be a classic female artist dancing in a location or in front of a green screen with many different outfit changes, which can be quite samey to watch for around 3 minutes, but the styling involved can have a large effect on the fashion world. Cheryl Cole’s ‘Fight For This Love’ was a prime example of this and her iconic red jacket ensemble sparked military fashion everywhere. I remember trying on my very own jacket similar to hers and wanting to emit the same powerful attitude as she does in the video
But hey, we can’t all be styled by Julien Macdonald from day to night in our lives. I wanted to share with you my current style inspiration from these past few weeks which comes from M.O’s new song “Dance On My Own.” Their video follows a similar format to that I have just described only the 3 girls are singing and dancing along on a backdrop of an empty car park and rooftops with a London skyline. The girls sing along to the track, which I LOVE by the way, throwing shapes and sass along with their effortless style.
I love the nineties style, especially the use of denim, throwing back to a vibe of Destiny's Child in their Tommy Hilfiger get ups. I also love that the three girls are rocking their classic timberland boots and I am desperate to get my hands on a pair for myself. Finally the tropical style co-ord worn by one of the girls is great outfit inspiration for this weekend as it is finally BESTIVAL!!!!! (Can you tell I’m excited!)
Here is the music video! Let me know what you think and comment below! 'Dance On My Own' is also available to buy on iTunes now!
