Celebrity OOTD

Here is my first post on Celebrity Outfit of the Day, where I take famous fashionistas and show you how you can recreate their looks for yourself, from both designer and high street labels.

This week I bring you Edie Campbell, shown here at the Guy Boudin: Image Maker exhibition in London. The seasoned model is working a normcore look, which is one of my favourite styles. She oozes easy, relaxed cool and her scraped back hair with minimal makeup keeps her look fresh. Normcore is a trend that is very simple to join, with plain clothes and jersey fabrics featuring prominently. Here's how you can recreate this slick outfit:

This gorgeous black sweater from Helmut Lang comes in at £210 and is made of a wool-blend, leaving it very soft to the touch. It is unclear from this image but there is a mix-up of the direction in the wool, adding texture to the solid black colouring when up close. The long sleeves are practical for the colder climes and look slick when pushed up to just below your elbows.

Levi are a long-standing quality denim maker, popular with people of all styles. The Curve I-D range offers 3 separate cuts to compliment different figure types. The pair I've featured here are Demi-Curve (£100), which are most suited to women with some definition between hips and waist, and a little bit of bass. The rips on the knees toughen up the grey shade further and the skinny balances out the bagginess of the jumper.

Kurt Geiger may be most renowned for the collections of going-out shoes, but they're boots are designed as exactly the same high standard. These flat leathers are £150 and have a very slight heel. The side-zip detailing again toughens up your look and breaks up the block black colour. Plain leather goes well with a Normcore look and adds durability.

Over to the high street and the ever reliable New Look gives us this knit jumper for a budget-friendly £22.99. The crew neck is a flattering cut, especially to those less blessed in the breast department and the honeycomb design is quite eye-catching.

I've chosen Topshop's Jamie Jean (£42) with the cut knees to compliment the jumper. I've found personally found the MOTO denim very comfortable to wear, once I've broken them in a few times, and the fabric is very durable. The grey denim brightens the black jumper somewhat and the slit knees are very on trend at the moment.

At £89, these leather boots are not exactly cheap, but I can personally vouch for the extremely high quality of Dune's shoes. The side zip adds a cool edge to the otherwise plain boot and the tab pull at the back gives it a more traditional look. There is a slight heel which won't add much to your height, making them practical for every day wear.
