Following the leak of two songs from her new box set album, Platinum Edition, superstar singer Beyonce has surprised fans (again) by releasing an ad hoc ‘home’ video to one of the tracks, “7/11,” where the singer’s look is so low key-cool that we’re totes all trying to recreate it.
See the way forward with our little guide, below;
1. Do Not Wear Trousers.
Repeat: Do not wear trousers. Thoughout the 3 mins 36 of Bey’s “7/11” video, shot at home (or at the hotel she’s calling home for the moment) on a camera-phone, Beyonce is seldom seen in more than just her pants.
Said pants are actually boxer-style, y-front briefs, which look brilliant when worn with a slouchy jumper, while “flexin'” in the bathroom mirror, or when worn as part of a pyramid of bottoms.
2. If You Must Accessorise, it’s Silly Shades, Dice, Kneepads or Nothing.
Yes, in 2014, Queen Bey brought us the phrase “Surf Bort”and now, she’s bringing back kneepads.
Spied with a pair of dice in her mouth for ghetto fabulous times on the balcony; rocking silly oversized shades for serious celebrity antics in front of a Christmas tree; and kicking it in some knee pads, Beyonce’s single-handedly transformed plans for our wardrobes.
Be a complete winner like Beyonce with any of these style hits – perfect for whatever event you’ve planned for this season, so long as it’s like Bey’s… At home.
3. Joggers: Now House Party Appropriate
No longer a secret between you, your bedroom and whomever you permit inside it, jogger bottoms are the piece du jour for all the wildest parties (a la Beyonce’s) and should be shown off for all their booty-hop-permitting glory, if Bey’s new 7/11 video is anything to go by.
The singer’s best pair – the white, double pocket pair she’s seen minding her business in the bathroom with – reminds us of all the reasons we love our own, humble sweats; they’re durable, flexible and never fail to make us look amazing while lounging around the house.
But don’t just lounge in yours – party, because Beyonce’s proved that’s what they’re made for. Pull on any of these pairs above and they’ll certainly all be toasting your style at the party.
4. Crazy Jumpers are for the Cool Kids
Got your Christmas jumper yet? Well, now’s the time – before they all go out of stock under the new demand.
Beyonce is seen in plenty of nice knits in bright prints and cool slogans, showing that in-your-face jumpers aren’t just for chilly nights this Winter or festive feasts with the fam. Totally appropriate for busting a move on your nearest balcony, partying with your girlfriends or filming and publishing a music video to break the internet with, these woolly wonder pieces are now the way to declare real style status.
Simply pull on any of these bold pullovers and party like it’s 2005.
5. Partner-Partner, Let Me-Let Me, Upgrade ‘Ya
Iphone? Pfft – so 2014 before the “7/11” video. We’ve evolved sweetie. It’s all about the new Footphone.
Have yourself seen speaking into one on the front row at fashion week and you’ll certainly get noticed – these are so new and exclusive, Bey’s the first to be seen with one.
But, to make all your friends jealous at all those hot end of year parties you’re headed to, don’t forget to keep yours in a stylish Footphone case. These by are by far our favourites – don one and you’ll have Team SPICE turning green.
