Quite dashing and notoriously “gal pal”-ing, Kristen Stewart has been heavy on my mind of late. So, naturally, I’ve taken to stalking tumblrs dedicated to documenting her highly covetable (not to mention queer-friendly) style. A little secret: I find it very difficult to wear “normal” clothes. Kristen’s off-duty looks are essentially a master class in lookin’ delectable in simple basics. By some platonic female friend magic, K-Stew manages to be both relaxed yet on point in sneakers and band tees. Seemingly “normal” outfits like a white tee and jeans become instantly enviable. Apparently I should just be wearing a black crew neck and blue jeans every day, all day.
So how does one become a devastatingly tomboyish gal about town? No worries, you’ve got this. I’ve prepped a primer in mastering how to dress like Kristen. Spoiler: you probably already own all of these things and this will be so easy. I promise. Vacay in Hawaii avec gal pal not included.
On this one I cheated a smidge. Instead of a standard cotton sweatshirt, I styled this look with a vintage angora sweater, which coincidentally has raglan sleeves This look is straightforward and easy to execute — you’ll look cooler-than-thou even if you are just poppin’ into the grocery store for some chowder.
Although Avril Lavigne turned me off black ties for quite some time, this look was probably my favourite to recreate. The double denim gains a touch of formality with a button down and a simple tie. So goddamn comfortable, while still saying “I wear ties in the daytime, you know I’m the shit.”
Co-ords have been high on my must haves recently — there is something so sharp about having a look which features a very limited and specific palette. Kristen’s suited looks are eye-catching but still have that air of ease. Since I’m still on the hunt for a perfect pair of slacks, I styled my version with some tuxedo-striped ponte pants and a thrifted blazer that has fancy satin lapels. Toss on a white tee, some shiny oxfords, and you’ll be ready to hit up Stella McCartney’s latest presentation (or at least spend a night out on the town).
And there you have it: a starter’s guide to dressin’ like babe extraordinaire, Kristen Stewart. Do you have a favourite K-Stew ensemble that I missed? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
