Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Style Icon: Poppy Delevingne

While her younger sister Cara has been receiving lots of accolades in the press, British model and it-girl Poppy Delevingne still reigns street style blogs, topping best dressed lists for her impeccable balance of classic style with a bohemian rocker edge. When the 26-year-old BFC ambassador isn’t behind the camera, she’s sitting front row, playing style muse to the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs and Matthew Williamson.

Poppy’s looks are quite versatile, but she favours feminine pieces like maxi skirts and billowy blouses, offset by edgier touches of grunge or menswear inspired tailoring. She exudes a quintessentially English appeal, simultaneously rocking a traditional piece, like a Burberry trench with distressed vintage denim, or Converse chucks.

Her casual looks include easy California staples such as lace camisoles and skinny jeans, or blouses and hot pants paired with leather or denim vests and suede booties. Aside from awesome shades, Poppy’s signature blonde locks and long limbs are the perfect accessories to her evolving look. She’s sort of the English antidote to France’s obsession with Isabel Marant, perfecting undone, yet calculated glamour that fellow Brits Alexa Chung and Keira Knightley pull off so well.
