Street Style: CHRVCHES @ Somerset House, London

Somerset House, probably one of the most beautiful venues in this city, has played host to a series of gigs this summer and we were lucky enough to pop along. First up was the oh so lovely Emilie Nicolas, bedecked in feathers, sheer fabrics and topping her look off with a top knot, she set our fashion hearts a flutter as well as our ears. Accompanied by possibly the prettiest keyboard/guitarist we have ever beheld, we couldn’t quite believe that they were a warm-up act. As the sun set over Somerset House, Scottish electro trio, Chvrches, took to the stage. Their melodic music, pretty light show and delectably danceable beats proved to be the perfect soundtrack for the humid evening.

Below are our favourite outfits from the evening. It was super hot, but these stylish gig goers managed to keep their cool!


Sleek blacks with pops of brights and neons made this a perfect pairing of opposites for a hot summer night.


Our summertime favourite, the dindrl – aka midi skirt – looked lovely; a cute crop top and the brown brogues were the finest quirky touch to this ensemble.

A full length, patterned dress that is colour-coordinated with one’s hair?! Genius! And her super round shades were the cherry on top.
Crisp whites for summer never go out of fashion, but this year they are the biggest trend. Pretty, florals paired with a deep mahogany bag added lots of interest to this feminine outfit.

Being secret sneaker heads, we were totally drawn to this outfit. The simplicity of the rest of it really let the trainers do the talking.

These bobbed-hair friends were a lovely fashion duo. We adored their chunky sandals that they paired with fun, floaty printed dresses for a bit of fashion juxtaposition.

This super cool DJ duo made sure the beats kept flowing and they looked amazing while doing it. Rocking cut-offs, coral lips, and cool kicks, they made sure we didn’t stop swinging our hips before the show began.
These two beauties were opposites attract in the best way. They both looked impeccable with one fashionista in a lovely, lightweight vintage dress and dainty heels and the other in an ultimate model off-duty boho uniform.

After the doors were open to Somerset House, we spotted this lovely concert-goer wearing a lovely pale blue kimono – the perfect summer cover up. And of course, we were totally in love with her silver geometric jewellery and chunky sandals.

Amongst the crowd, we spotted a masterful man-bun and found this gig-goer had the most fashionable accessories to go with his pitch black outfit.
