STYLE STEALER: How To Dress Like Aria Montgomery From Pretty Little Liars.by Carly Jacobs
I’ve recently become hideously addicted to Pretty Little Liars. And by hideous, I mean sitting bolt up right in bed at 2am, with blood shot eyes desperately clutching my iPad. I’m not going to lie to you, it’s not the most cerebral television series I’ve ever watched but it’s strangely enthralling. In order to justify the hours I’ve spent watching this show in the past month I’ve decided to create a little Style Stealer Series based around the four main characters. Here’s Part One – Aria Montgomery.

Aria is the ultimate in hippy glam. Think jewel tones like purples, greens and deep reds. Texturising is also a staple of the boho luxe look so go with lots of fringe, lace, leather and feathers. Skirts are mini or maxi and rarely in between. Layers are a key component to this relaxed look so stock up on cardigans and wraps. Jeans are do-able but always dark or black denim and always tucked into boots.
Bangles, rings, necklaces and earrings worn all at the same time. Wear long layers of pendants piled on top of each other or a statement collar style neckplate. Always wear a scarf, whether it’s around your neck or tied to your boho handbag. Beading, tassels, chains and weaving are also highly encouraged.
You want to focus on two things to achieve the perfect Aria look. Clean, glossy, voluminous hair and sexy, smokey eyes. Try greys, purples and browns for eyeshadow with lashings of mascara for that doe-eyed Aria look. Use a clear or nude lip gloss with a plumper to emulate her pouty bee stung lips. Nail polish is vampy – red, black, magenta, deep purple and very occasionally a bright orange.
Why Don’t You…
