As we all know, trends come and go, but there's something about Irish fashion that's changing at the moment – and for the better.
With influences coming straight from the Irish music scene, we look at the style of Róisín O, Ireland's latest girl crush.
We're getting way more comfortable with ourselves, and that means with our clothing choices too, and we can thank gals like Róisín for it:
A few years ago, getting unusual piercings were a bit of a taboo (our Irish mammies wouldn't be too happy), but taking example from Róisin, they're something that have become a total norm and a style statement these days. If you like it and want it, go for it girl.
Celebrities have always been changing and chopping their hair throughout the years, and it's safe to say us Irish have been a bit late to the game sometimes. But, not anymore. We relish with different looks, cuts and colours, and strive to be a bit different. Go us.
Gone are the days of the super girly girl (goodbye Paris Hilton circa 2009). Now, us Irish gals like a bit more rock'n'roll and we always grunge up our look. Whether it's adding a big statement belt, or rockin' black dress like Róisín here, we're loving it.
Saying that though, as much as we like to be comfy and original, we also LOVE to add a bit of glamour to our outfits sometimes. Whether you're heading on a night out and want to sparkle as bright as the discoball, or you simply just feel like adding some glitz to your shopping-day look, in the words of Fergie, we are G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S yeeeaaah.
If there's one thing we've conquered in fashion, it's accessories. Rocking some deadly shades, or simply adding a great bag like Róisín here, can totally change up any look and make it ten times better. We got it, girls.
To raise awareness of the issue of dating abuse and to raise funds for Women's Aid, we have decided to host a music gig in The Sugar Club on Wednesday July 6, where Róisín O will headline, and more special guests to be announced. If you'd like to support us on the night, you can get your tickets here now.
