I recently watched the film adaptation of Meg Rosoff's novel How I Live Now which stars Saoirse Ronan. The adaptation wasn't at all what I was expecting having read the book but one thing that stood out amidst the drama was Daisy's unique wardrobe. Arriving in the UK, American teen Daisy stands out with her colourful-yet-grungey style - here's how to get the look...

1/ Vintage Is Your Friend - Daisy's effortlessly cool style relies heavily on layering up contrasting pieces to create a grunge-inspired look. A great way to recreate this would be with vintage or thrift finds that will make your look even more unique.

2/ Go Bold! - from colourful headphones to patterned knitwear, blue nails and a dark smokey eye this look is accessorised boldly. Add layered necklaces, chunky rings & statement earrings to complete the look.

3/ Oversize It - as mentioned above layering is an important part of Daisy's signature look. Try slouchy cardigans & jumpers as well as a versatile oversized leather jacket. Chunky shoes such as creepers are perfect for creating a bold contrast when teamed with slimmer fit items like skinny jeans or tights.
