STYLE CRUSH: ARIANA GRANDE

Ariana Grande, born and raised in Florida in 1993, began her career in the Broadway musical 13 before landing a role on the Nickelodeon show Victorious in 2009, and afterwards a spin-off series Sam & Cat. A platform in which her singing career could take off, Ariana Grande since then has two albums which debuted at the number one spot in the Billboard 200. Along with her career, her style is beginning to generate interest within the fashion world. Her signature style of sweetheart necklines, full skirts and floral prints gives a modern twist on the classic trends. Whether she’s walking the red carpet or performing on-stage Ariana’s style is always cute, feminine, flirty and retro. From flirty high-waisted skirts, to sweet sweatshirts to classy dresses, this budding fashion icon knows what she likes and always looks good in it!

Rocking a Monochrome shift dress, she replicates the '60s mod go-go look.

On trend, in this head to toe knit gear, Ariana paired it with a pair of retro boots, staying true to her signature style whilst being on trend.

Cute, fluffy jumper with a bow tied around the neckline. Ariana is certainly the queen of cute and girly when it comes to fashion.

Everyone's Wearing... Ear Cuffs!

The trend for ear cuffs has come and gone over the last year without really making too much of a splash. After last year's Punk inspired Met Ball where Sienna Miller and Cara Delevigne were both seen adorning ear jewels of the edgy and spiky variety, there were ripples to suggest that this might be a trend about to blow up. But alas, apart from within the true punk scene, so far the ear cuff hasn't really taken off in mainstream fashion.

But after seeing a few of the, shall we say, less risque celebrities donning some upper ear bling on the red carpet lately, we are here to ask; Could 2014 be the year of the ear cuff? This year's revival already seems a little different however. Instead of being an accessory to toughen up your leather jacket and give off a 'don't mess with me' vibe, the ear cuff now seems to be taking a much more sophisticated route, being worn alongside chic up-do's, evening gowns and flawless make up. Celebrity Ear Cuff trend From L-R: Emma Watson, Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Alba, Lara Bingle and Sarah Hyland. Images sources here. First spotted on our favourite quintessential English rose, Emma Watson, who is normally known for her demure red carpet style, her cuff of choice was adorned with tiny swarovski crystals proving this accessory needn't be pigeon holed. This statement was followed swiftly by Miranda Kerr, who donned her cute as a button cuff with an oh so casual outfit, Jennifer Lawrence who wore a beautiful sparkling number at The Hunger Games Catching Fire premiere, Jessica Alba who chose a sophisticated snaking number and most recently with Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland choosing to compliment her chic up-do with a blingtastic cuff at The Grammy's this week. Yup, you heard it here first. It looks like the ear cuff is re-appearing in a much more glamourous form, and this time it might just be here to stay. What do you think of the ear cuff trend and how would you wear it? Tweet us @annalouoflondon, send us a pic of yours on Instagram or leave us a comment on Facebook.

Back To Work Outfit Inspiration...

After all of the sparkle, sequins and colour that surrounds our outfits over the festive season, heading back into work wear territory come January can seem, well, a little dull can't it? It's easy to get stuck in a style rut (don't we know it) and reach for those easy black and grey pieces and comfort clothing on a cold January morning. But as we all know, a good outfit can do wonders for our mood, confidence and demeanour so even if its cold and dark outside and you are only going to the office, making a little more effort with your work outfits can really make all the difference to getting through January unscathed. So here at ALOL we are aiming to 'dress up' a little more for the office  and so far its been great fun! We thought we'd share some of our back to work outfit inspiration, the best celebrity and street style looks of course, which we've been gathering like crazy over on our Pinterest board of late. back to work inspiration We've been getting inspired by the likes of Poppy Delevigne and Miroslava Duma and below are our style tips on how to make more of your work wear this year: 1. Keep it masculine - we all love feminine looks but lets be honest, they do take more effort. If your version of work wear at the moment is jeans/ trousers and comfy shirts/ knits then you don't need to stray too far from that. Masculine styles can look sharp and totally chic as long as the cuts are right. Add at least one more girly piece such as the fur stole in the first look above, a statement necklace or a bright scarf and your look will be far from boring. 2. Add a fun print - Poppy Delevigne's jeans and blazer look above is nothing special but the polkadot print of the trousers makes this look stand out and seem far more creative. We also love the embroidered panel of a plain pencil skirt as seen above or a simple polkadot silk shirt as worn by Clemence Poesy. Easy to do, yet makes a true statement. 3. Inject some colour - Ok so not all of us could pull of Miroslava Duma's cobalt blue suit, but adding an injection of a bright colour like this will both lighten your mood and give you a lift in the style stakes. Not brave enough to do a coloured suit? Try a bright scarf or necklace or even a pair of colourful heels underneath a plain suit. 4. Stick with the classics - classic accessories will always update a more plain work uniform, and it also means you don't need to spend loads buying new season pieces. Whatever you wear, add a classic yet chic bag, and the jewellery you feel comfortable in and you'll instantly feel more confident at work. 5. Choose your empowering item - everyone has one thing which can give you that air of confidence even on the worst of bad hair days, whether its a slick of red lippy, your favourite sparkly heels or just a pendant that means something to you. On those days when you wake up tired and reluctant, throw this on and make it a great day! What gives you confidence at work? Do you have any tips for making back to work less dull?
