Twenty-one-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter Alessia Cara is a force to be reckoned with. At the young age of 14, the entertainer was already posting song covers to her own YouTube channel, which would amass a significant fan following.
Fast forward to 2015, and Alessia would go on to release her first major recording with Here, the lead single from her debut album Know-It-All. Following up with the irrepressible Wild Things and Top 10 charting Scars To Your Beautiful, it was an impressive debut from the young singer/songwriter.
Hot off the heels of her album’s release, Alessia would go on to garner even more recognition with her recording of How Far I’ll Go from Disney’s Moana. Thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s superb songwriting and Alessia’s killer vocals (and Disney’s golden touch!), the video has racked up over 130 million views – not bad going!
It’s not just her songs that turn heads either – Alessia’s slick style is championed among fans, who adore both her on stage and off-duty looks. With a penchant for killer shades too, we have serious sunglasses envy!
Join us as we look at the rising star’s recent fashion highlights, and how you can steal Alessia’s style!
Alessia stepped on stage in Chicago wearing a gorgeous oversized sheer floral shirt, and we couldn’t be more about it! The beautiful print pops with colour, with vibrant oranges and bold blues contrasting to create a striking look.
We love Alessia’s accessories here too. A pair of big silver hoops lifts the look, while a simple black choker draws out the darker tones of her outfit.
Alessia rocks the sports luxe look in the above shot taken at Summerfest earlier this year. Pairing a cropped Fila vest with wide fit cargo pants and white trainers, it’s the perfect example of the athleisure trend done right.
With her hair up and accessories kept to a minimum, Alessia’s separates do the talking here. We’re loving the pinstripe detailing on her vest – a design touch that gives the look a slightly more formal edge.
We ‘re loving this summery shot of Alessia enjoying an ice cream and catching some rays (although it has us yearning for the warm weather again!).
The singer’s oversized oval shades also tick all the right boxes. The simple round metal frame with an overarching connecting bar is seriously on trend right now, with the ‘double bridge’ taking this season by storm. Steal Alessia’s look with the Vogue VO4061S for your own slice of the action!
Could we love this smart blazer/trouser combo any more? The oversized statement pieces look gorgeous on Alessia, and it’s a move away from her slightly more casual look to something high fashion.
Hair tied up, delicate accessories and a simple wedge heel, this is a killer look that will take you right from day through night.
Black ‘N’ White
We adore these shades, worn by Alessia in the gorgeous, sunny shot above. Wearing a simple checkered flannel shirt over a plain black tee, it’s Alessia’s killer oval frames that really steal the show here.
Round shades have been everywhere this year, and with playful additions such as simple connecting gold bands, it’s a great twist on the trend. Try the Ray-Ban RB4256 – Gatsby I for serious style points!
Alessia keeps it cool and casual in the above shot. Sporting a long-sleeved charcoal tee and matching choker, we’re digging her off-duty look.
The singer opts for round shades once again, this time featuring an on-trend 90s throwback green tint. Combined with the classic gold frames, they’re a sure-fire winner! Try the MAX&Co. 320/S to steal Alessia’s look.
