Posted by: on Aug 29, 2012 | No Comments

The bodycon and print masterminds at cult womenswear brand Motel Rocks have done it again with purse-tantalising designs to tempt our budgets this coming season!

With a celebrity following consisting of some trend-setting songstresses like Jessie J and Tulisa, as well as some stars repping the brand like Ashley Tisdale and Jenner sisters Kendal and Kylie, Motel Rocks is raising its stakes with some head-turning prints and fast becoming a celeb go-to for wow-worthy dresses.

So whether you’re after a new bodycon stunner, some great on-trend seperates or just want to nab your favourite celebrity’s style, then look no further than Motel Rocks for some inspiration this Autumn!

We take a look at the essentials you need from, and to tease you online shopping addicts even more, we have 20% OFF to offer to GD readers- swoon!


The ‘It’ Print

Motel’s new architecture-inspired gothic statement print is hot teamed with leather and studded details this winter.

Ashley wears the Zena high-neck, racer front style in the Gothic Placement print dressed down with slouchy studded black boots. You can also channel your inner rocker by wearing this print in Motel’s Jordan skinnies, the body skimming Becka skirt or sexy ladder-back style of the Robyn dress!

Dress up your gothic print with one of Motel’s biker jackets, shoe boots and studded or spiked accessories!

Flashback Fash

The ’90s revival has emerged in a lot of styles for this winter, with our favourite crop and bralette styles being altered with off-the-shoulder cuts, and the dip-dye movement taking on dresses, denim shirts and shorts this summer!

Motel Rocks take our reminiscing for the 1990s even further with their roll neck dresses and crop tops this season: our favourite at GD HQ is the Zabby roll neck dip-dye bodycon dress. Work your favourite decade all in one go with this dress, all you need are some chunky stacked wedges and OTT drop earrings and you’ve nailed the look!

You can also get this roll neck look in plain black, and in a monochrome side white stripe style— so if you fancy the style, but don’t want to go all out on the ’90s look, this is the way to go!

The ’90s staple was the crop top, and Motel has to be your go-to brand for these navel-baring beauties!

We’re spoilt for choice with Motel’s bandeau, bralette and off-the-shoulder crops, but the Dana dip dye off-shoulder crop has to be my favourite for this upcoming season; teamed with the covetable disco pants, knicker shorts + tights combo or high-waist skirt, you can work the dip-dye of the summer right through into your winter nights out!

The bold prints of the Tabbi scoop neck palm top or the Brandy plunge back bralette in tiger will again add a pop to the dullness of your winter wardrobe, and would look great with a circle skirt and wedges for the in-between weather this Autumn!

If flashing flesh isn’t your scene, then Motel Rocks cater for the modest fashonista too! With bold prints like the stand-out monochrome stripes of the Hattie boyfriend shirt you can still work the ’90s revival, or even opt for a dip-dyed sleeveless shirt like the Motel Salene, or polka dot Hilary bodysuit!

These Motel dresses work the ’90s, sultry, off-the-shoulder style to a T.

The ’50s print of the Debbie dress in light blue is great for vintage lovers, and the coral hue is perfect for enhancing a tan post-holiday blues.

If you fancy showing off your tan and channeling your inner Bardot, then this siren style is for you!


Celebrity Style

Kendal and Kylie Jenner have been spotted wearing many-a Motel design in bold colours and flattering fits. Our new favourite style icons from the Kardashian empire are also a fan of the online cult brand too!

The Jenner sisters’ mesh love-in started with Kendal donning this perrywinkle  blue mesh bodycon dress to the Project X premiere in LA!

This figure-hugging long sleeved Goldie dress if perfect for chilly winter nights– and is a steal right now in the sale for £15!

Sister Kylie is also seen in the same style in the Instagram photo below in a softer dusky pink, and you can nab the same shade á la Kardashian with Kendal’s cap sleeve version.

The Elsa dress in now £18 in the sale too, so get it before it’s gone!

Ashley Tisdale is also a fan of the butterfly print that Kendal Jenner flaunts in the Instagram picture with her friends above!
