Ashley Madekwe And Her Perfect Wardrobe

I am in awe of Ashley Madekwe. A simple but very true statement! The British actress has shot to fame playing the rather sneaky character of Ashley (convenient) in the hit US show revenge where we  get a glimpse of her natural ability to look beautiful in absolutely anything that she puts on. You may also remember feeling rather envious of her beautiful face and petite frame in ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’ where she played ‘Bambi’. Wouldn’t want to end up sat next to her on the tube first thing in the morning lets just say!

In Revenge we see her silently plotting to get her own pretty Chanel shoes through the door of the huge Grayson empire, and whilst doing all this plotting, she makes sure she looks the part, in classy short suits, dainty ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ dresses and some powerful colour clashing outfits.

And in real life too, Ashley is one stylish lady. Lucky enough to be able to pull off a versatile wardrobe of looks, Ashley is kind enough to document her style through her very own blog titled ‘Ring My Bell’. Here we see her looking impossibly amazing in something as simple as a cream cable knit jumper and jeans with statement accessories , to more daring outfits which clash patterns and textures such as leopard print with leather.

How can she look so good in something so simple?!

And it seems that anything goes for where Ashley’s wardrobe is concerned. In the daytime she is a fan of the simple yet stylish approach, choosing skinny jeans, oversized jumpers, muted colour pallettes, all finished off with quirky designer accessories. Theres also a hint of glam grunge in her wardrobe- leather skater skirts, chunky jewellery,  band t-shirts and beanies all feature.

Alongside this simple approach also comes a playful adventurous side. She’s clearly a fan of pattern and texture too. Leather with leopard print, tai-dye with laser-cut, its all there!

Style Crush!

Very much similar to another favourite of mine, Miranda Kerr, Ashley is a fan of the simple aside the playful. So to get a wardrobe like Ashley’s just remember the following;

* Invest in timeless pieces- e.g. a leather jacket, chunky cable knit jumpers and  great quality shoes and bags. These things will always look good.

* Clash things! e.g. Ashley likes to use small bursts of leopard print within a classic outfit.

* Dress according to your mood. You don’t have to have just one style. One day Ashley is look like a rock star’s girlfriend, the next she looks like she’s attending an exclusive lunch in the Hamptons. It’s fun to have a versatile wardrobe.

For help, you only need turn to Ashley herself for guidance. With several weekly posts of her outfits, you really have no excuse not to follow in her footsteps!
