Ellie Goulding’s Fashion File

Ellie Goulding is a style icon who constantly impresses. The Love Me Like You Do singer never fails to wow when she steps out in her effortless, yet chic ensembles – perfectly (and annoyingly) balances her street style with effortless, “I woke up like this” glamour. Jel, much?  

But it hasn’t always been that way.

So we thought we’d #TBT to her big style moments, of which there are many. We’ve watched Ellie blossom from a shy, twenty-something into an established woman with some serious stage presence. So how do you emulate Ellie’s style? It’s all about experimentation! She’s tried everything – from pink hair (and lets not forget that yellow do) and lip piercings to leather stage outfits and then full on superstar glamour in floaty ball gowns and daring navel-slashed dresses. Pretty. Damn. Impressive.

Her increasing confidence can be seen in her most recent outfits – Ellie isn’t afraid of baring her midriff and flaunting her incredibly toned and envy-inducing pins – especially at London Fashion Week where she was on the FROW for all the brands. We’re not the slightest bit jealous, honest.

‘[I love] Topshop, Urban Outfitters and Whistles,’ Ellie reveals, ‘I love designer stuff but it will only be like, on a whim. I love Alexander Wang so much, but it’s so expensive.’

But what does she wear when she’s not dressing up for the red carpet? The singer can usually be found in her favourite Nike gym gear – and admits when she’s not being a pop powerhouse she likes to glam-down too (see she’s just like us really). “I’m a bit grungy – I love wearing boots,” she says. “But I also love putting on a beautiful white dress and jewels. I have those two alter-egos.”  We wouldn’t have her any other way.
