Florence Welch keeps it retro

If Florence Welch could go back to any fashion decade, it seems pretty clear that the seventies would be her first port of call.   The award-winning singer stepped out in yet another androgynous hippie look, wearing a tan fur coat on Friday.   In a pair of brow-line, round patterned sunglasses, Florence, 26, nodded her fashionable head to the stylish rockers of 40 years ago.


The singer’s combination of a cream shirt, high-waisted and patent black boots are reminiscent of the outfits worn by a young Patti Smith, known for her masculine take on style.

Tweeting about the news, Florence said: ‘So honoured to be part of Gatsby. Cannot tell you what a dream come true this is for me. Nearly cried when I saw the trailer.’   ‘”Over The Love” was written specially for Baz Luhrmann’s film and features on the star-studded soundtrack released on May 6th.’   The official motion picture soundtrack has been produced by Jay-Z and will also feature tracks from Beyoncé, Andre 3000 and British three-piece Nero, who will bring a touch of EDM to the adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s twenties novella.

Florence can also feel happy by the fact that she has been placed as the fifth richest young musician in Britain, with an estimated £9 million fortune.   She comes after former X Factor winner Leona Lewis and singer-songwriter Katie Melua, who are both worth £12 million, and Cheryl Cole, sitting on an estimated £14 million nest egg.   Adele’s £30 million fortune puts her at number one on the list according to The Sunday Times.
