Charli XCX: My festival faves

Charli XCX is reminded of Drew Barrymore when she wears a 3D flower bikini top.

She's just as well known for her quirky style as she is her catchy pop tracks, and Charli is fast becoming a fashionista's favourite.

Revealing she prefers Glastonbury over Coachella and ankle boots over wellies, Charli has drawn up a list of her festival must-haves.

"A classic leather look biker jacket. It's always good to throw on when it gets cold at night and is endlessly cool and stylish. I love anything cute and 90s too, like the River Island turtle neck sweaters and the fluffy bags which come in a plethora of colours. They fit loads in, too!" she smiled to British magazine River Island Style Insider.

"If it's hot enough to wear, I absolutely love the 3D flower bikini top, it's so sassy and reminds of an iconic image of Drew Barrymore when she wore daises in her hair. Sunglasses are a necessity, my favourite are the round bug eye styles in white, very cute and 60s inspired."

Describing her own look as sassy and cute, 22-year-old Charli has long been a fan of 90s fashions.

She channelled the look in the video for Fancy, her track with Iggy Azalea, using characters Cher and Dionne from movie Clueless as their muses.

"I'm inspired by movie characters; Corrine Burns, Cher from Clueless, Nancy from The Craft. Also Marilyn Manson and Rose McGowan," Charli explained.

Earlier this month Charli showed of her style credentials during the Cannes Film Festival, wearing a chequered blue and red Vivienne Westwood trouser suit.
