Longitude is in full swing, and from our FOMO-filled couches, we're admiring the style. 

The festival has set a high standard for festival trends going forward – so we collected some of our fave looks for a master post on festival fashion appreciation.

Here are some seriously stylish Irish gals serving looks:

Hallelujah for inclusive fashion!

Fashion retailer ASOS have proven how sound they are by designing a new piece of clothing, suitable for people with a disability.

The rainproof jumpsuit is modelled by Great Britain paralympic Chloe Ball-Hopkin.

Speaking to Newsbeat, Chloe explained that she wants to ''make fashion that is accessible to everybody."

The athlete and BBC Bristol sports reporter was contacted by ASOS, who wanted to see if she would be interested in a collaboration. 

The idea for the jumpsuit came to Chloe after she got drenched while at a festival with her boyfriend.

"You get the same version whether it's you or I buying it – that's the point. It is exactly the same for me as it is for you,'' the 21-year-old said. 

The support she has been getting has reached a global level. 

Social media have shared their delight, with one Twitter user saying, ''this jumpsuit is cute, and better yet, inclusive of people who use wheelchairs. Excited to see more inclusive clothing coming out!''

Another commented, ''just ordered from ASOS for the first time! Love that they’re collaborating for accessible fashion!''

Disability blogger Shona Louise has written a moving piece championing the brand for catering for differently-abled bodies. 

She wrote, ''for so long accessible clothing has been ugly, ridiculously expensive and generally unappealing. Actually designing something with disabled people in mind is a whole other amazing and important step. It's not the extra step either, it's the equal step.''

This is not the first time ASOS has included a model who has a disability in a campaign.

Model, blogger and leg amputee Mama Cax was featured by the brand in one of their activewear campaigns back in in January. 

So what other brand will be next to follow in their footsteps?

There's not much that Queen Bey can't pull off.

This can be seen with her recent Instagram pics which showed her enjoying an impromptu photoshoot session on her private jet. 

And how fab does she look?

The singer first posted a video collage, featuring several pictures of herself rocking a Zimmerman pink paisley ensemble.

Known for her killer fashion choices, she paired her ruffled paisley shirt and matching high-waisted shorts with a boxy white handbag and clear heels. 

Her hair up was swept up in an epic blonde top knot and the look was finished off with pink sunglasses, hoop earrings and a statement red lip. 

 

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Bey decided to ditch the caption and simply let her images speak for themselves – which they did.

Her 115 million followers showed their support with comments such as, ''SLAY PRETTY IN PINK'' and ''You are PERFECT in every way. No matter what you do, what you wear, what you sing'' while others simply opted for love hearts or fire emojis.

However, even Beyonce suffers mishaps, which was seen recently on stage during her On The Run II Tour in Warsaw, Poland.

She lost her balance during a cover of Ed Sheeran's Perfect, as the "flying stage" she was standing on suddenly stopped. 

Thankfully she wasn't injured and was helped down a ladder by crew members.

And if anyone can make climbing down a ladder in high-heeled PVC boots look stylish, it is the Queen of Pop.

Summer is in full swing, and while we're loving the opportunity to don some tropical, seasonal pieces, we still need classic staples to see us through outfit after outfit. 

We're all about that cost per wear ethos, so while we love fast fashion, it's important to consider all the ways to wear something before committing to the spend. 

We spotted this Zara shirt on the raile during our last after work browse, and it couldn't be more simultaneously staple and on-trend. 

Short pleated shirt €19.95

From the cut of the lapels to the button-down accent, this shirt is pretty damn chic. 

We're picturing this piece with denim shorts and flip flops on our summer vacay, and with checked trousers and boots for the working week. 

Need more styling inspiration? Here's four more ways we'll be wearing this staple piece all summer long: 

 Faux leather skirt €19.95, Black Suedette Block Heels €27.99

 Leopard Midi skirt €29.99, Sneakers €25.99

Pink culottes €17.49, Platform sandals €49.95

Ripped hem skinny jeans €55.00 White leather block heel boots €67.00

There are dozens of influencers out there who are empowering all kinds of women, from the fit fam to the body positive movement. However, one group that we’ve struggled to see being represented are ladies that are a size 14, until now…

The wonderful Lucy Wood has inspired many women to embrace their size 14 bodies with her encouraging and honest videos.

The writer has bravely opened up about her body in a series of videos, where she shares her body confidence tips and fashion advice for women who are ‘a little bit fat.’

As a size 14 woman myself, Lucy’s videos have made me feel comfortable enough to dress the way I want, instead of covering up every inch of my body.

There is so much pressure on women to look a certain way, and that is why content creators like Lucy are so important.

One of the main reasons why I love the autumn and winter months is because I feel more body confident. I love wearing snuggly jumpers, giant scarves and chunky boots. However, once the summer rolls around I can’t help but dread the change of style.

 

 

A post shared by Lucy Wood (@lucyjanewood) on

When I turn over the calendar from May to June I can’t help but fret about the struggles of dressing my size 14 body in ‘suitable summer clothes’.

My mind fills with a wave of worries- How will I cover up my pasty pale legs? Won’t my stomach look too big in light summer dresses?

Since watching Lucy’s inspiring videos, I have realised that it doesn’t matter what size you are. We should all dress in a way that makes us feel good. You can wear a floral playsuit whether you are a size 8 or a size 14.

You don’t have to cover up your body just because you’re that little bit chunkier than your friends. Embrace the skin you’re in and follow in Lucy’s footsteps.

She’s paving the way for us size 14 ladies and I’ll proudly march beside her.

The best piece of fashion advice that Millie Mackintosh ever got was from her grandmother. 

“My grandmothers used to say flaunt what you’ve got. When I was a teenager I had really bad acne and I didn't feel very good about it. She would give me a really short mini-skirt and would say to go out there and flaunt your legs cause that’s one of your best features," she tells SHEmazing.

"If you’re not feeling to good about one thing just forget about and focus on something that you do feel good about.

"She's such a glamorous lady, I posted this picture of her Instagram wearing this faux fur coat I did in one of my collections it got about 20,000 like. She’s always got these amazing retro sunglasses she really is fantastic." 

The former Made in Chelsea star and fashion icon is as every bit stunning in the flesh as she is on her 1.3 million follower-strong Instagram. Dublin, she says, is one of her favourite cities. 

“It feels quite familiar now, I don’t quite know my way around yet. I must have been about 10 times now. I always feel really happen when I land in Dublin. I always seem to end up in Roberta's for cocktails." 

 

Always a pleasure staying with you @themarkerhotel! Will be back soon I hope

As well as sampling the chicest watering holes around capital, Millie adores Irish street style. 

“I love Irish style I think you’ve got great designers. What I really appreciate about the Irish girl is that she really loves to dress up and loves to get a new outfit for every event. I feel like there’s a lot of thought that goes into the outfits and I love that because I love to dress up as well." 

But how can us Irish girls get the Chelsea look? Don't worry it can be done, and Millie's got the inside scoop on how to dress like an Insta-star this summer. 

“I’m really loving summer tailoring and summer suits. I wore a really fun yellow one which was High Street recently. You can dress them up or down or wear them as separates.

"Or you could wear the top and the trousers with a tank top for a sports lux look. You can also wear just a bra and heel when you’re all done up for a more sexy look." 

Not a suits fan? The classic summer dress is always in style. 

“A summer dress is a staple and will see you through lots of events. Go for one that you can wear with different shoes- like espadrilles during the day and maybe a red statement heel for the evening.

"You can throw a denim jacket over it or not jacket if it’s a nice evening. Something you can wear from office to evening." 

Engaged to fellow MIC cast member Hugo Taylor, she's got a big style event coming up this summer- her wedding.

“I’m very excited. Last weekend I had my hen party which my best friend organised so that was a really good send off. It’s later this summer but there’s still bits that I’ve left to do but I’m really chill about it.

“I don’t want to be stressed out because I think you’ve got to enjoy it all and enjoy every moment."

One thing she's definitely not going to get stressed about is skincare. When it comes to summer beauty Millie is all about keeping it light and fresh.

“I like letting the skin breathe and I love wearing a tinted moisturiser and I’m really loving Lancôme Skin Feels Good. It’s got SPF and pollution protection which is really good for when you live in a city. It gives a nice coverage but it still looks like your skin. I’m all about that summery quite fresh make-up which looks quite subtle yet glowy and healthy.

“It’s about keeping your skin hydrated in the heat, you don’t want it to be too shiny but you don’t want it to be dried out from the sun either."

Known for her devotion to exercise and healthy eating- she was even featured on the cover of Women's Health. However she's no stranger to a cheeky treat, the new Magnum Praliné in particular. 

“I love food. My family’s confectionery history is sweets and toffee, chocolate. I am into healthy eating and exercise but I do love a treat as well. I love Praline. The new Magnum Praliné flavour that I’m here to launch is a favourite of mine."

The face of Magnum's Pleasure Seeking series, Millie has managed to combine fashion with one of the yummiest ice-creams of the summer. 

"I’m a big believer in pursuing your pleasure and style has always been that for me," she says. "The Magnum ethos of ‘a day without pleasure is a day lost’ really resonates with me. 

"I am always pushing myself to embrace and enjoy everyday."

Last night, the famous Met Gala took place in New York City.

The 70th annual Ball was themed Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

As you can only imagine, the style on display at this year's event was amazing (and sometimes a little outrageous!) 

From insane baroque numbers, to actual angel wings, the celebrity guests went all out.

Check out some of our favourite looks:

Queen SJP went all out with a major Dolce& Gabbana number, which included a cathedral train embroidered with gold baroque embellishments and sacred hearts. NAILED that theme hun.

Can Emilia Clarke just be our bestie? The GOT icon was also part of the D&G fam last night, with a dress that included needle point frescos. 10/10. 

Gucci gang, Gucci gang, Gucci gang! The flawlessly talented Fashion director of Gucci, ALessandro Michele, dressed Lana Del Ray and Jared Leto this year. Thank God.  

Kate Bosworth – we are not worthy. The blonde bombshell rocked up to the event donning an Oscar de la Renta number with a teardrop mother-of-pearl headpiece.

And then there was the Versace family – who naturally went ALL OUT.

Katy Perry stuck to the theme in a major way, donning a massive pair of feathered angel wings. Bow down. 

BLAKE LIVELY. That is all. 

The ever-elegant Lily Collins wore an all black ensemble from Givenchy, paired with rosary beads and black tear drops under her eyes. Flawless. 

Honourary co-chair of this year's Gala was the UNBELIEVABLE Rihanna.  She rocked up to her event, looking like the chicest Pope you've ever seen, thanks to Maison Margiela.

Rosie Huntington Whitely was a modern-day angel in Ralph Lauren. Glowing. 

Not really adhering to the theme, but I honestly don't care with this lady. Ashley Graham KILLED it in Prabal Gurung. Slay bish.

Thought your Insta game was strong? Think again. 

With a keen eye for a selfie and a wardrobe to die for, one Irish granny is putting us all to shame with her stylish snaps. 

Known to her followers as eileenstylequeen, Eileen Smith has amassed over 17,000 followers – and it's not hard to see why.

Her classic style and timeless charm has proved to be a huge hit on the Irish Insta scene with Pippa O'Connor even said to be a fan. 

Eileen set up her account as a way to keep in touch with her daughter in Australia.

Speaking to Independent.ie Style, she said: "I've got three daughters and they’re all mad about clothes and style. One of my daughters said, 'Go on this and have a bit of a laugh’." 

 

The last of the summer days

"One is in Australia and we started doing the photo a day thing for each other, so it kept us in the loop."

At 79-years-young, Eileen says she doesn't let her age hold her back. 

"I find age doesn’t make any difference to me, I don’t mind what age you are," she said.

 

Happy to be back to normal routines again 

A post shared by Eileen Smith (@eileenstylequeen) on

"I have very good health, I like to walk, I like to meet up with people.

"I have a little note here beside my bed that says, ‘Get up, dress up, get out and don’t look back’."

Solid words to live by from Ireland's newly crowned style queen.

When we think of perfectly styled Irish influencers, Lauren Arthurs springs to mind immediately.

The blogger and style maven took to Instagram recently to showcase a pretty unique take on the classic summer kimono, and we're all about it.

 

A post shared by Lauren Arthurs (@lovelauren_eu) on

Lauren opted for this golden-hued oriental-inspired kimono with a cinched, button down waist and fitted lower sleeves. 

The silky finish adds a luxe touch to an otherwise very affordable statement piece. 

The low cut neckline leaves rooms for some layered necklaces, or leave the decollatage bare and add a pair of tasselled earrings. 

Bershka Kimono €45.99

Rather than teaming this piece with jeans and sandals like the stylists at Bershka, Lauren went for an edgy pair of chunky Doc Martin boots. 

She also went bare-legged, adding some black shorts and her black Gucci Marmont handbag. 

 

A post shared by Lauren Arthurs (@lovelauren_eu) on

This piece is perfect for a summer holiday, thrown over a bikini and some chunky sandals. 

We would also weAr this kimono open, with a black turtleneck top and black jeans. 

 Another piece to add to our wish list…
