Look perfect in purple plaid as seen on Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Posted on June 30, 2010
Bella has become an unexpected style-icon.
And average teenager living in a rainy town might seem like an unlikely style-icon, but that’s exactly what Bella Swan has become. Kristen Stewart, who portrays the ordinary girl who fell for two extraordinary guys, has become equally revered in the fashion world, with fans watching and replicating her every outfit. But while Kristen’s style is edgy, Bella’s is a lot more laid back and weather-dependant, since she lives in the permanently overcast Forks. But this doesn’t stop millions searching for her BB Dakota jacket or Modern Home bedding.
So when stills and clips for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse began emerging online, fans starting scouring the net for the actual items and lookalikes of what Bella wears. We don’t know if it’s because they want to look like Bella, Kristen or just attract hot vampires and werewolves, but we totally agree and we’re joining in. Today we’ve taken a liking to the purple plaid shirt she wears in a couple of scenes in Eclipse – a passionate scene between her and Edward in the meadow, and what looks like an awkward chat with her dad Charlie (Billy Burke).
There’s plenty of speculation online as to who makes the shirt, but we’re not sure so we’ve found some lovely lookalikes for Bella’s plaid number. Whether you want something similar or a bit brighter, there’s some great check shirts out there. And they’re always comfy and easy to wear, throw on over jeans buttoned up or over a tee or cami for Bella’s simple look.
In New Moon Bella was dressing to match her mood and her new found adrenaline-junkie activities, it wasn’t until she went to Italy to save Edward that we began to see the old Bella coming through. And with a marriage proposal to think over it seems her outfits are becoming a little more feminine, with more pastel colours creeping in. Bag yourself some Bella Swan style now with our picks of the best purple plaid online.
