As a member of the Next Bloggers Network, this week’s ‘Steal Her Style’ is not only a feature, but it is also a competition entry to win tickets to the Elle Style Awards 2012. And who better to focus on, than the stylish, eccentric and opinionated Jameela Jamil for my entry?!
The Channel Four ‘Play It Straight’ presenter has always ‘wowed’ me with her laid-back approach to fashion.

From her love of prints, to festival chic – and not forgetting her trademark stand-out lip – Jameela has got it all. For this feature I have taken an outfit from last year’s Elle Style Awards, and I have found similar items from the Next website.
Here is what Jameela wore on the left-hand side of the image, and what I found similar on the right-hand side:

Geri Cream Maxi Floral Dress £55 –Floral prints may have been HUGE in 2011, but they are also set to be big this year too, with designers such as Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane and Proenza Schouler all including this Spring/Summer print into their designs. Being ahead of the fashion game is a tough job for many, but Jameela does it with grace and originality. Want to achieve this look-for-less? Then try this Geri Cream Maxi Floral Dress from Next! This dress may be pricey but it is a good investment. It’s a perfect transitioning piece from Spring to Winter, for example, for the current icy weather try pairing this dress with some opaque tights and a cosy cardigan and for Summer, take inspiration from this look!
Models Own Eye Gift Set £15 – Every girl needs that perfect smokey eye! So this Models Own eye gift set is a perfect buy for those of you who can’t live without this sultry and sexy look! At £15 it is a tad pricey, but take heed from the blogosphere – who are raving about Models Own products at the moment – and bag yourself this kit!
Models Own Lipstick in Baby Pink £6 – Again, you can’t look like Jameela without having that all important statement lip! This Models Own baby pink lipstick is a bang on-trend colour at the moment with pastel hues being all the rage! Take colour inspiration from Valentino, Calvin Klein and Diane Von Furstenberg who had a rainbow of pastels in their collections! Now all you need is a cute guy to pucker up with for Valentine’s Day!
Made With Love Rose Mesh Clutch £18 – Miss Jamil may have a simple plain nude clutch in the picture above, but this textured rose mesh version brings something different to this girly ensemble. Mixing prints and textures was huge last year, so it is unsurprising that I have incorporated this ‘clashing’ trend into this week’s Steal Her Style look!
Nude T-Bar Platform Shoes £35 – Nude accessories are the best way to go if you want all the attention paid to your statement dress! These T-Bar heels are not only similar to Jameela’s shoes, but T-Bars are on trend too! Take Jonathan Saunders and Calvin Klein who had their models strutting down the runway in this particular shoe style!
That’s all for this week’s ‘Steal Her Style’! What do you guys think of Jameela’s style?
