I know you shouldn’t wish your kids life away but I look at some of the gorgeous Christmas fashion for older kids and it is gorgeous, especially a lot of the older girls Christmas range at M&S. And it seems I am not the only one who thinks it’s a bit special as Disney presenter Electra has made a bee-line for the collection and created an exciting new YouTube fashion channel Electra Loves.
If you have older girls who love fashion and creating a quirky look then they will want to see this. Electra Loves is an exciting, new lifestyle YouTube channel starring fashion stylist and Disney presenter, Electra Formosa. Six special three minute videos feature Electra working behind the scenes at the M&S Christmas Kidswear photo shoot creating some seriously cool looks.
As the stylist of the festive Looks, Electra presents her insider tips on how tween girls can create these fashionable looks at home, just in time for Christmas.
Each video starts with Electra choosing an on-trend, statement piece perfect for a festive party or Boxing Day brunch. Items range from a fresh, woollen snowflake jumper or a retro, Parisian-print red dress; a luxe, faux fur coat or a sparkly, silver metallic skirt; to a digitally printed, giraffe t-shirt and a vintage-vibe, bow print dress.
Electra shows viewers what’s hot, and how to make the trends work. Trends include: Bowmania, Rue de Paris, The Party Dress, Sparkle, Luxe Faux Fur and the Cool Christmas Jumper. She explains how to customise these key looks by sharing her love of big bows and demonstrates how to wear one trend in three different ways, for multiple festive occasions.
Electra Formosa says, “With each of the looks I have tried to give different and unique style tips so there is something in there for everyone, whether you are a girly girl who wants to know how to sparkle up a dress or if you’re going to be out and looking to wrap up warm in style with some lux faux fur.”
The six-part series debuts on 5th November and runs throughout the month on Youtube.com/electraloves, with new releases every Tuesday and Friday.
Since launching her career as a stylist, Electra has worked on Channel 4’s How To Look Good Naked, Gok Wan’s Fashion Fix and Ten Years Younger. She’s also styled UK fashion icons including Alex Zane, Myleene Klass, All Saints and Gethin Jones. Electra is the presenter of the Disney Channel UK’s popular fashion show Get The Look, and recently hosted Minnie and You, a ten-part mini-series, which worked alongside an Inspired by Minnie collaboration with London Fashion Week.
My personal favourite is Bowmania, I love the cute handmade bows in this shot and would love to make some out of neon mesh for Roo for some of her Christmar parties!
