Style Spiration: Reese Witherspoon
My almost unbearable schedule this past week has made me appreciate clean and simple style. Though I'm a frippery fanatic, going back to the basics is absolutely necessary every now and then. In honor of stress-free style, I'm dedicating this week's style spiration to the queen of simple chic: Reese Witherspoon. She has the ability to dress age-appropriate, classy, and fashion-forward at the same time!
|This is by far the best pregnancy-friendly look I've seen in a while. Witherspoon quickly stepped away from the world of following chiffon at this year's Cannes and sported this fitted, black, long-sleeved mini. The thin silhouette perfectly complements her baby bump without look trashy. For a kick of summer-approved style, the pink heels act as that ever-so necessary pop of color. The subtle smokey eye, paired with the soft pink lip, allows Witherspoon's pregnancy glow to shine through.(Photo Cred)|
|Only a year after her fantastic Oscar win, Witherspoon brought simple chic to the AcademyAwards with this drama-packed Nina Ricci dress (it all sounds ironic, but so accurate). From the subtle ombre to the diagonal ruffles, this gown pairs a typical silhouette with standout embellishments. Witherspoon strays away from the typical Oscar beauty regimes with the sleek down-do', smokey eyes, and a barely- there lip.(Photo Cred)|
|Even off the red carpet, she still has it. This occasion, for example, shows off a luxe, casual aesthetic. I love the monochromatic mix of different textures. The light fedora is so incognito chic. J'adore! (Photo Cred)|
- Nina Dobrev at Cap D'Antibes (Elie Saab): What a vision! I'm so obsessed with this blue, sequined number. The dropped shoulder and high-slit make this ensemble classy, glamourous, and so not something an ice queen would wear. If you're in a mood for a striking contrast, look no further than the silver accessories. Can we say fabulous? Dobrev's fashion bun is the perfect way to finish off this ensemble.
- Bella Heathcote at Vanity Fair and Gucci's Cannes bash: I'm literally obsessed- so in love with this editorial ensemble. Metallics and neutrals- ie black and white- create a striking combination. Fortunately, Heathcote nixes the jewels, which creates a clean look. Not to mention she aces the beauty front: blunt bangs and gothic lips are musts for the fall! Can we even think of a more spectacular combination of simple lines, gothic glam, and cutting-edge magic? No!
- Jordana Brewster at a Coach benefit: Gone are the days of color blocking being the end of discussion. Now, let's focus on a new way to approach your favorite hue- monochromatism. I'm obsessed with mixing different textures and fabrics that are the same color- so chic. Jordana Brewster totally rocked this monochromatic trend. From the whimsical, oversized clutch to the printed blouse, this look is super sweet. The silver shoes add the perfect finishing, quasi-monochromatic touch!
