Closet Must-Have: White Lace

White lace is a must-have for this time of year. Usually associated with springtime and weddings this romantic fabric never really goes out of style. Whether you're going for a dreamy Bohemian vibe or super glam style you're sure to look great!
White lace works really well as a sheer cover-up, especially if you're spending the day at the beach. The delicate lace allows your cute bikini or crop top to show through but still provides a little coverage. Our Meow Lace Tunic is perfect for creating a Boho beach babe vibe.
When it comes to lace less is more! Since it's such an attention grabber it's best to keep your ensemble simple. Go easy on the accessories and let the lace do all the talking. Playsuits like our Stay in Lace Playsuit or our Grace and Lace Playsuit are perfect for showcasing your love for lace without going OTT.
A great way to wear lace is as an inset, for instance you could team a lace crop top underneath a peek-a-boo dress or cut out top for a cute contrast like we've done with our Crochet Salsa Top and Low Maintenance Top.
If the whole Bohemian look isn't for you why not go for a lace crop top like our Underground Blanc Top teamed with a bodycon style skirt for a more glam approach. Let's face it, white lace is super versatile and worthy a place in your closet!

Think brightly coloured hair chalks smudged into the tips of your hair and pretty daisy chains painted across the face, even the most conservative of us can let our hair down. After all, half the fun of hitting a festival is having an excuse to go a little crazy with our style, right?

Once the sun's gone down you'll need to think of other ways to stand out so why not brighten things up with some glow in the dark or UV body paint. They're easily removed with water, can be applied with a brush or fingertips and are super quick drying, perfect for when you're dashing to see the next group perform.

DIY Festival Fringe Top

Festival season is nearly upon us with Coachella fast approaching and let's face it your fashion choices are now just as important as the festival itself! Fringing is a perfect way to add a hippy vibe to your look and is a hot trend for the summer months ahead. We've put together this budget friendly DIY that can be accomplished at home and have you fest-ready in no time.

What you will need:

 

-  Jersey vest top
-  Fabric scissors
-  Ruler
-  Wash off fabric marker
-  Bleach or fabric dye
-  Beads and feathers to decorate (optional)

Method:

  1. Lay the vest flat and slice the hem off the bottom. Try to keep it as straight as possible.
  2. Then measure the desired length of the fringing by marking a line or dots across the top, this will act as a guide when it comes to cutting.
  3. Next roughly cut from the bottom of the top upwards to create the fringing strips. The fringing can go straight across or at an angle depending on how you want the top to look.
  4. Now it's time to dip dye. We used bleach as our vest is navy blue and we wanted to strip the colour back. You could use a white top and coloured dyes to create some super cool tie dye style effects. 
  5. Once the colour has taken rinse and completely dry.
We've left our vest fairly simple as we wanted the fringing to really stands out but you could go to town with beads and feathers for a chic boho vibe or create a cool lattice effect by knotting the strips together. You could also try this fringing technique on a jersey sweater or a maxi dress, perfect for creating a statement festival piece. We've styled our fringe top with white studded cut off shorts and buckle ankle boots. A pair of round sunnies and statement necklace are perfect for finishing off the festival look!

Coachella Celebrity Style

Coachella is one of the largest, most famous festivals in the United States. The annual music and arts festival in Indio, California, is seen as the pinnacle of cool. The festival showcases established acts as well as emerging artists, art installations, sculptures and interactive visual art.

At Coachella image is key, it's a fashion show, music festival and celeb spotting dream all rolled into one. The festival is seen as the unofficial start of summer fashion, the perfect place to showcase your style and soak up the laid-back southern California vibe.

There's sure to be countless crop tops and cutoffs as far as the eye can see but at Coachella there are no fashion rules, creativity is key! Think vintage items mixed with new finds, 1970's mixed with 1990's and menswear teamed with women's clothing. The festival embodies youth, freedom and happiness which is demonstrated through the fashion choices seen at the festival.

Vanessa Hudgens is practically the Queen of Coachella, attending the event every single year. She's seen wearing flowery dresses, cut-off jean shorts to colourful crop tops and more. Oh and don't forget the copious amounts of jewellery and accessories.
Another huge fan of Coachella is Victoria's Secret Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio. The Brazilian bombshell even took her five year old daughter to the festival last year. Her laid back Bohemian style is enviable.
Then there's the reality star sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, who spent time at the festival scene last year. We love Kylie's Bohemian meets grunge style. A contrast of feathers and silver jewellery mixed with band style tshirts and studded accessories.

Fabulous Finds of the Week

This week at SirenLondon we thought it'd be fun to put together some outfit ideas using some of our most popular selling items. We've created four looks that are great to wear now and perfect for the warmer months ahead.

Firstly we've teamed our hot selling Cobalt Fairy Tale Top with cut off shorts, fedora hat and ankle boots for a look that is great for any up and coming festivals. Also perfect for adding a pop of colour to your wardrobe.
The second look is a little more elegant, teaming our Perfect Peach Dress with simple heels and felt hat. You could throw over a light jacket or cardigan if it's still a little cool outside and still look totally dreamy!
Next we've paired our super popular Coral City Sweater, perfect for wearing off the shoulder, with our Ripped Your Jeans for a super relaxed vibe. Chunky cut out boots and black fringe bag help toughen up the look.
The last look features our In The City Dress. We've teamed this chiffon style skater dress with t-bar heels and pearl necklace for a super chic look. The deep v-neckline and cobalt blue colour are perfect for Springtime.
