The Florence, the Machine and the Wardrobe

Florence WelchFlorence Welch is one of those annoying people who just makes you want to scream, “Where did you buy everything you own!” And while the lucky lot who did manage to get tickets for her sell out tour can attempt this strategy, in the meantime why not read on to find out how to imitate the look.


Florence’s fashion mixes Victorian romantic frills topped with glamorous twenties shapes, topped off with rock and roll touches for one of the best looks in the music industry.


Florence checks in at a statuesque 5’9, yet never shies away from a look which enhances her tall frame. Her stage look often consists of loose floor length gowns with an empire line to elongate her long legs, making her a pioneer for all you lanky lovelies! Maximum impact is added with batwing sleeves which billow in the wind on stage, making her stage-outfits actual works of art.


To get Florence’s stage look, go for seventies style maxi-dresses in old-school Hollywood colours such as gold, bronze and cream. Check out this stage-worthy maxi from

If you want to go for a simpler maxi, add a thin oversized jacket to achieve Florence’s dramatic stage look. The velvet oversized jacket from Miss Selfridge would do the job perfectly. To top it off, stand in front of any electric fans you can find and achieve the on-stage wind-machine look!


Florence on Jools Holland

Ignoring mainstream fashion and preferring to introduce her own, Florence’s most recent look channels art deco styles in 1920’s cuts for a glamorous vintage look. The look can be seen on her new album cover and here as she performs on Jools Holland. As Florence again combines art and fashion, her style becomes ones of the most revolutionary in the music industry.


The mini dress from New Look combines art deco shapes with beading and a loose twenties cut which perfectly embraces Florence’s look. Team with a beaded clutch bag and wear your hair in twenties style waves for a beautiful Florence inspired evening look.


Never forgetting she is one of the biggest artists in the UK, Florence’s style is accordingly rock and roll. From one extreme to another, Florence’s floor length gowns are often swapped for short-shorts for a daring look. To achieve this “couldn’t give one” rock and roll look, combine all sorts of different textures such as feathers, sequins, leather and silk all in dark colours as seen here on Florence. Statement black eye make-up complimented by statement shoes give a head to toe quirky yet gorgeous look.


Try the silk and sequin playsuit from Topshop with the Irregular Choice heels to imitate the look. Make like Florence, ditch the fake tan and if you’ve got them, get out your English rose legs in daring shorts. Wear with your hair in shaggy locks and you’ll look like an undiscovered next-big-thing.
