I just realized I’ve been doing Style Stews mostly on Kristen’s dresses for red carpet events, so I hope you’ve all had enough places to go to get glammed up! I think I’m going to try to pick her casual looks for a little bit…
For this week, I asked some of you on Twitter which one of Kristen’s outfits is your fav and a lot of you chose Kristen’s French Connection strapless mini she wore to the Much Music appearance in 2008! Promoting Twilight with Rob, she is dressed with an edge as always, which is appropriate for the event!
Just like Kristen’s natural style, her outfit is pretty simple to copy! First, find a strapless plaid mini dress that frames your curves nicely and hits at the right length above your knees. Don’t go too short with the length because heels will make you look taller once you add them to this outfit and it will not be flattering, nor look proportional. Keep it classy like Kristen!
You can choose other prints and patterns, such as this striped dress below if you prefer it over plaid. However, a great plaid dress is this one from ModCloth for $30! I love that Kristen always chooses prints to wear, whether they are bold or subtle.
Kristen wore deep (blood) red Stella McCartney pumps with what looks like a medium-sized heel. You can do the same thing, or for a more relaxed look, pull a Kristen and wear a pair of red converse with your dress! They actually look even better with the striped dress, in my opinion! By wearing a different print, you are still inspired by Kristen, but adding your own personality to it!
The Chanel chain is gorgeous on our girl, but let’s not get too carried away! Make the outfit yours by adding layers of silver or gold necklaces that hit near your abdomen – the more the better! Some rings and multiple bracelets (even a watch like the Seikoone Kristen is wearing) complete the vibe you want to give off. Include smaller personal touches like these, and you’re golden!
