[Loving] Emma Watson's Style

I might have just woken up, but I've just realised I love everything Emma Watson wears. Like her or loathe her, you can't criticise her style - she's always got a certain 'Englishness' about her.  To be honest, anyone who loves blazers, bretons and ballet flats is a hero in my book. Can't believe I missed this for so long... Her festival style is one thing (love the denim cut offs, try London Loves LA for some of those) but as I am get to grace a festival AKA three days of hell without a shower or a toilet I can't really relate. But her penchant for mixing luxe pieces with cotton basics is something I'd like to grab with both hands...

It's absolutely no secret that Emma loves a trench coat - ever since she did her campaign for Burberry she's been spotted in multiple versions of their style. I think you're either an Aquascutum or a Burberry fan with these things... (and I know which camp I'm in) but I cannot knock the effort the Burberry team have gone to update their trenchs season after season.  Miss Watson certainly has embraced them with open (sometimes studded, sometimes leather) arms...

As always, I'd recommend you bought the classic (here) and would suggest buying an expensive one as trenchs need to fit you well, and last.  My mum still has her Burberry trench from the 70s and it looks brand new, so it's definitely worth it. However, if you're after an alternative check out my trench coat post from a couple of months ago, or my friend Dearne's lovely APC style in her blog post. If you do have lots of cash to flash however, there is an amazing khaki green version with leather sleeves available on Net A Porter here for just over £1,000.

She also likes to keep it fairly neutral (love) with her clothing - nearly always wears blacks. navys, greys and beiges - often with denim if out of the limelight.  Above are some examples, on the left she's wearing some Tom Ford wedges and J Brand scuba leggings with a white tuxedo jacket (an essential, read the post here) and on the right she's kept it simple in vintage Proenza Schouler.

Jason Wu white peplum top / Jason Wu SS10 monochrome dress

Notice she always wears pieces that pin in at the waist to give her some shape (not that I personally need any additional shape added... but just a thought) - she's a huge Jason Wu fan (above) who is brilliant at this.  She has worn his peplums (great figure shapers for all sizes) and his black and white pieces loads. You can  often pick up some good Wu bargains at The Outnet here.

Rafael Lopez black lace dress / red Valentino dress

One thing I do really like about Emma is that ever so often she goes all out and gets her legs out - usually with some lace. Her red Valentino dress was a complete winner for the Lancome opening and I love her black lace Rafael Lopez piece too. Every girl needs a wear-it-once dress (although Emma has several) that kicks all other aspects of their style into the bin...

Here is my pic of all stuff Emma Watson. She's obsessed with her Alexander Wang Rocco handbag, her trench coats and her jersey knits.  She also loves a good blazer, collars, some ballet flats and the pixie-ish collared piece. Overall,

Wow, I do tend to like most of Emma Watson's outfits but this post definitely shows she's perfected great British style!

And that she's got killer legs and suits most hairstyles! #jealous
