Shailene Woodley attended Rebecca Taylor’s show at the Highline Stages on Saturday afternoon, and the lovely young actress (she doled out hugs to reporters, including this one) was a very good muse.
Dressed in a black, leather jacket, printed blouse and slim navy pants from Taylor’s collection, she was fashionable in that cool girl way that says, “I didn’t try too hard, but I look good.” In fact, she doesn’t try too hard. “I know very little about fashion, so you can’t ask me about it,” she said. “But I like what I have on.”
And so will other hip gals who want clothes that are quietly confident, multifunctional and fun to wear. Here find the perfect day-to-night dress in gray-blue tweed with frayed edges – just a little downtown. Or go for a leather and wool coat featuring quilted sleeves, or a chunky sweater (belly baring) shot with Lurex. Or, perhaps, the "British punk trousers” with built-in zippers and suspender-like straps hanging loose.
For a little more impact, a studded, sleeveless shell paired with a chainmail skirt, or that same chainmail fronting a casual little tee. Bottom line: These are real-deal clothes that you’ll love having in your closet.
