Nothing gets me into a summery mood like a 90210 marathon, it brings that California sunshine into even the most rainy British day. It should come as no surprise to those who follow this blog that my favourite style icon of the show at the moment is surfer chick Ivy Sullivan, real name Gillian Zinser. Why do I love her? She makes California cool, grungy looks effortless, gives the queen of off-duty style Kristen Stewart a run for her money and then there’s her hair, just look at those locks! The great thing about Gillian is that you don’t have to spend mega bucks to get her relaxed boho style, and chances are you’ll already own some great basics to achieve her look. Let your hair dry naturally, ditch a full face of make up, throw on some cut off denim shorts, a slobby tee, converse and a long pendant and leave the house. That’s my summer plan sorted. Now let Gillian show you how the laidback look is really done.
Love Ivy’s style? I posted a huge lookbook this week all about grungy/boho pieces on the high street, so be sure to check it out to find a few Ivy inspired pieces. Just click here to read the post.
That’s it for today’s style inspiration post, I hope you all enjoyed it, don’t forget to let me know what you think as usual by tweeting me or leaving me a comment. And tell me, who’s your favourite fashionista from 90210 at the moment, and who’s your all-time favourite character? I’d love to know! (Mine’s definitely Naomi!) Until next time…
