Style: Ghetto ‘This is Eng­land’ with a dash of Grace Jones and a pinch of Kylie

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - GOING OUT | SEVEN DAYS - Emma Fraser

This week we meet Joni Kelly, a DJ from Dublin. Her thrift­shop chic style is a dif­fi­cult look to pull off, but she does it with ease. She shows us that you don’t need to spend a bomb to look fab­u­lous and that the sale rail is of­ten where the best gems are found.

We asked her to sum up her per­sonal style in one sen­tence and she came back with: “Ghetto ‘This is Eng­land’ with a dash of Grace Jones and a pinch of Kylie.”

Glad­bach bomber, ¤38

“The bomber jacket I bought in Nine Crows when I went in there to buy stuff for a per­for­mance and ended up com­ing out with more than I needed. I wear it all the time now. It in­stantly adds shape and a rougher edge to an out­fit. I like to mix girly with harder edges so this per­fect.” shop­ninecrows.com

White San­dro vest, ¤65

“I have had this for years and years. Great to have some good qual­ity sta­ples that you will keep and wear again and again.”

Golf trousers, thrift shop, ¤15

“Got th­ese in the lo­cal thrift shop about two years ago. I like to team them with hip-hop style train­ers or more punk el­e­ments. Love the cut of them.”

White loafers, Top­Shop ¤10 on sale

Th­ese are wipe-clean. Win­ner for that alone.
