STYLE STEALER: How To Dress Like Emily Fields 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 Two – Emily Fields.
Chain Detail Top From Charlie Brown ($169 AU) * Noosa Love Bracelet from Coco Kitten ($13 AU) * Megan Park Dark Jewelled Bangle from JASU ($149 AU) *Le Coq Sportif Lace Up Leather Sneakers from The Iconic ($129 AU) * 7 For All Mankind Denim Shorts from Revolve Clothing ($162 AU) * Luna Crossbody Bag in Yellow from Coco Kitten ($49 AU)
Emily is the sporty one of the group and has a rather youthful edge to her look. Denim is a favourite in the wardrobe of Emily so think jeans, denim mini skirts, washed denim vests and jackets. Zippered hoodies and racer back singlets are also favourites of this bronzed beauty. As for shoes, go with funky sneakers or Converse chucks, this gal likes to be comfortable and practical. Baseball tee-shirts, crew neck sweaters, cargo pants and cut off shorts are all staple items. Never be afraid to dress up though. Emily can rock a party dress and heels like nobodies business.
Think high school chic – beaded cuffs, friendship bracelets, woven bangles with little charms, meaningful pendant necklaces and understated earrings. Miss Fields also loves a hat so go with masculine trilbys, knitted wool caps and berets.
The most important beauty tip for perfecting the Emily look is all about the skin. Exfoliate yourself from head to toe with Tranquil Touch Body Polish ($49 AU) and scrub away your dry bits with the fabulous Dermalogica Buffing Cloth Trio ($56 AU) to get a super smooth finish. Make sure you moisturise your skin every day – try Decleor Body Milk ($44 AU) – and get super serious about your sun protection. Wear Invisible Zinc 4hr Sunscreen ($27 AU) on your body and Dermalogica Mattifying Sunscreen ($51 AU) on your face to keep your skin Emily perfect. To get a gorgeous sun-free tan use a combination of St Tropez Bronzing Mousse ($56 AU) to form the base of the tan and Model Co Airbrush in Tan ($34 AU) for a gorgeous daily glow. Make-up is super low key for this natural beauty. Try a simple three step look with Bare Minerals Black Eyeliner ($20 AU), ASAP Mineral Bronzer ($29 AU) and a simple dab of Lanolips Golden Ointment ($26 AU).
Why Don’t You?
Wear a vintage tee with distressed denim jeans?
Stack on layers of friendship bands for an Emily-esque arm party?
Try an off-the-shoulder top?
Sleep with your hair in five or six loose braids so you wake up with natural looking beach waves?
Wear a denim jacket?
