When Instagram Queen and all round mega babe Charlie Barker came along to Bill+Mar HQ to shoot our SS15 we were totally psyched to finally meet her after months of highly emoticoned messages and awesome pics of her rocking our SS14 festival garms after she and partner in crime Elizabeth Bishop found us through Instagram and included us in some of their truely unique shoots.
We are dropping some of the awesome pieces featured in this shoot including the Grills Print in Limited Number on Friday - pick you favourites now and be ready... when they're gone... they're gone.
Yeehaa! This Spring Summer sees the rise of the Urban Cowgirl, think less lassooes and sherif badges but slick leather accessories, strong prints inspired by nature and wide rim hats.
Denim, leather and suede form the base, whilst fringe and shearling come in as subtle detailing. Plaids, Western embroidery and prints are mixed with sharply tailored jackets, wide-leg trousers, pencil dresses and shirtdresses for a more sophisticated look than the last time we saw this trend. Styled with knitted capes and cowboy boots, makes this the perfect transitional trend this Spring.
Bill and Mar's Cactus print is dropping in March, modeled above by Lucy and Tiger from the Confetti Crowd, is the perfect statement print for the Urban Cowgirl look. To style up your outfit mix it up with some classic cowgirl inspired accessories:
The hat! It’s the essence of the cowgirl feel but you don't want it to be too overwhelming. Opt for a Fedora - its manish wide brim giving a cool edge to your outfit. Go chic in black, and then add your own twist with a plated leather band or simple feather detail.
Open Front Cape
This look stormed the Burberry catwalks at the last LFW by the one and only Cara. Luckily for our bank accounts there are now lots of options, like this one from Warehouse. Drap this cape round yourself for effortless chic layering, with its natural draping and texture. Throw on a thin leather belt and keep the rest of your outfit sleek and tailored for volume contrast.
Here at Bill+Mar HQ a fringed bag never goes out of fashion, and we love this light blue one from Topshop. Big enough to fit all you day to day stuff, its still smart enough to take on a night out.
