Who wants to get a new wardrobe?
As huge fans of beauty blogger and singer Helen Anderson and her personal style, we know we certainly do!
Her fashionable eye has helped her become one of the UK’s most respected beauty gurus, with 273,000 Instagram followers, 588,000 YouTube subscribers, and a strong fanbase of young women seeking advice on a range of topics from fashion to life and confidence. So we’ve put together just some of the reasons Helen gives us wardrobe envy!
She isn’t afraid of patterns
If there’s one thing Helen is, it’s bold. Her intuitive sense of what “works” is a trait we’re totally envious of, and patterns are definitely a long-term staple of Helen’s wardrobe. Few of us would even consider throwing two patterns together, let alone do it, but Helen’s fearlessly fashionable nature lets her pull it off every time. We’re tempted to give it a try!
She doesn’t stop, even at Christmas
While most of us (probably) spent our Christmas break in our PJs, Helen was serving us Christmas glam and it was EVERYTHING. Okay, so… you can only see a coat here, but WHAT. A. COAT., right?! It’s fluffy and oozes that Christmas cosy vibe. Combine that with Helen’s confidence and personality and it adds a new edge to glam.
She re-envisioned party glam
To paraphrase Joey in Friends, “What’s not to like? Glitter? Good. Star-printed black dress? Good. Silver boots? Good.”
We adore Helen’s alternative Christmas party glam look from last year – it’s equal parts feminine and rock-grunge aesthetic, and we can’t wait to be invited to another party to try it out for ourselves!
She even slays a baggy outfit
We love a day when we can be in our baggiest clothes, so we love Helen’s effortlessly stylish take on the look! It’s cool, simple yet chic, perfect for either chilling on the sofa or being outside.
She rocks a subtle look on stage
Bona fide rock star Helen nails her on-stage style: here she is at Summer in the City 2015. Serving understated chic with her vibrant hair and makeup on point, Helen lets her talent do the talking.
She owns the classic looks too!
Who doesn’t love a bit of leopard print? Exactly, we all do, it’s a classic look – but it’s a fine line between being 90s chic or not. As you’d expect, Helen falls into the former, with a statement leopard print item that’s enough to make an impact but doesn’t drown out the rest of the outfit.
She’s stunning in swimwear
Helen on holiday is another style game entirely: chic swimsuits, beautiful scenery, and effortless cool. Helen makes us wish we all looked this good by the pool. She’s spoken candidly about body image in the past, and we love her attitude on being confident with your style.
Even her lazy days in bed are a look
Now this is a look we’re more accustomed to! A lazy Saturday binge-watching Netflix in bed is something we all need to indulge in from time to time, and Helen’s Lion King pyjamas from Topshop are the perfect picks to do this in. Hakuna matata indeed!
Just… this coat. We have nothing else to say about that.
