One of the favourite times of year for the fashion-savvy is the abundance of award ceremonies during spring; a time for style-hungry eyes to cast a glance over the outrageous, the amazing and the unusual fashion statements that accompany them. At this year’s Brit Awards, despite the ladies showing off fantastic quirky looks, the guys seemed to reign in the style stakes with numerous different takes on the traditional suit. Host Nick Grimshaw put a twist on his three-piece with a navy checkered tweed jacket and waistcoat, with skinny jeans and smart ankle boots. Tinie Tempah dressed to impress with a grey patterned suit with casual white shirt and flawless white trainers. Multiple-nominee Tom Odell rocked a casual look with a dark blue jumper, on-trend beige high collared coat and black jeans and boots, while Jake Bugg opted for a casual black and white striped T-shirt and low slung grey jeans.

The girls battled it out for best dressed girl, with a mixture of casual and show-stopping looks. Pixie Lott made a fabulous return to the red carpet with natural hair and make-up, and a black and white monochrome strapless dress with a statement short at the front, long at the back design. For her performance later on in the night she opted for a tiny matching pink jacket and miniskirt with a contrasting black and white crop top. Newcomer Ella Eyre also went for black and white, with a sheer black top underneath her zebra-print jacket and natural curly hair. Jessie J also wowed with a daring knee length cage-look boots and black mini-dress, and wore a black bobbed wig that resembled her trademark look prior to shaving her hair off for charity in March last year.
