9 Times Florence Welch Rocked Us With Her Sense Of Style — How Big, How Bold, How Beautiful

Florence Welch fascinates us with her vocal prowess and captivating, heartfelt lyrics. As we look forward to the upcoming release of her album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, we're reminded of how big, bold, and beautiful Florence Welch's personal style has been over the years. From cool and confident in an all-pink Chanel suit, to ethereal and whimsical blue sheer in Rio, Welch proves time and time again that she's full of fashion inspiration.

The beauty behind Welch's style is her versatility. No matter what she's in, Welch wears the clothes, the clothes don't wear her — and that's a difficult accomplishment when flirting with big, bold fashion choices. But Welch doesn't shy away from unique pieces, or forget how striking simple, classic elements can be.

If you're looking for some fashion inspiration, or are just excited for Florence and The Machine's next release, here's a slideshow full of fabulous Florence Welch. Get ready for nine times Welch rocked us with her sense of style.

The Met Gala, 2012

Absolutely bold, and absolutely beautiful. Welch took a risk in this Alexander McQueen dress, and although she’s received some criticism for the look, its dramatic flair and bubbly champagne vibes seem an excellent tribute to the powerful effervescence of Welch’s musical style.

NME Awards, 2015

Not surprisingly, Welch is embracing the bohemian, '70s-inspired style emerging in 2015, and chose to rock a flower covered sheer and satin combo to the 2015 NME Awards. With her fringe bag and eclectic collection of rings, Welch channels hippie vibes in the best possible way.

Chanel's Fall/Winter Show, 2015

Florence Welch arrived at Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2015 Show sporting a lovely pink Chanel suit. Boldly pink, the suit is a perfect hat-tip to the '70s style that’s coming back into fashion this year, and Welch makes it look stunning. Pairing the pink suit with a black, wide brimmed hat and black, embellished boots gives the look just enough strength to remind us how much of a rock goddess Welch is.

'Great Gatsby' Premiere, 2013

With sleek lines and a bejeweled tie, this floor length dress was oddly perfect for Welch. And while the collar might read bedazzled on some, her fierce, fiery hair creates the perfect balance with the details of the neckline. This look is stark, sassy, and fun, all at the same time.

The Met Gala, 2014

No stranger to couture, Welch stepped onto the red carpet at the Met Gala in 2014 wearing Valentino, and the effect was breathtaking. The butterfly embellished cape Welch wore over an understated, flowing slate grey gown, gave the impression of high fashion in the most stately of gardens. Lovely, whimsical, and reserved.

Gucci And Rocnation Pre-Grammy Brunch, 2011

Earthy and bold, this piece definitely speaks to Welch’s ability to make style choices that reflect her persona. The texture and fringe in this wild, rusty dress remind us to spice up our wardrobe, and the beautiful color palette (that includes Welch’s vibrant locks) goes to show how choosing analogous colors creates incredibly cohesive looks.

American Museum Of Natural History Gala, 2013

In true red carpet style, Welch attended the American Museum of Natural History Gala in 2013 in a gorgeous dress from the Valentino Spring 2014 collection. Paired with metallic Christian Louboutin Iriza pumps, the satin paneled, gold-embroidered dress suited Welch perfectly, hinting at her bohemian style while remaining utterly classic.

Rock In Rio Festival, 2013

During her set in September, 2013, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Welch took the stage in a sheer blue piece that was both whimsical and ethereal. With swirling smoke/fog behind her, wrapped in the stunning blue of the stage lighting, Welch seemed more a vision than reality. This is such an idyllic look for the stellar songstress.

Coachella Festival, 2015

And of course, for Coachella 2015, Welch reminded us of the power in simplicity. Her classic white pantsuit paired with a sheer blouse gave her an air of strength and confidence — which she proved to have in spades when she continued on with her scheduled performances after having broken her foot while leaping off stage during the first week of Coachella.
