British actress Lily Collins has a wardrobe that can turn any woman green with envy. Truth be told, her petite frame, dainty features and the stark contrast of her dark hair against the fairness of her skin is already enough to turn heads. But it sure is a bonus that she knows how to dress. One can describe her style profile as light, floral and feminine but she’s not one to shy away from dipping her toes into more adventurous trends.
Lily has played muse to the most-esteemed high fashion labels and designers are scurrying to dress her. However, her flair for fashion is most eminent when she’s styling herself. In this article, we take a note from the star’s stylish layering skills.
If you’re looking for a wardrobe update buying more clothes, layering is the key to it is the key to achieving this. If you think you’ve worn a top one too many times, throw something above that will breathe new life to it. In this case, Lily wears a flowing printed button-up over a plain white cropped top. Leaving the buttons undone is a nice touch.
It’s easy to mix and match colors and patterns when it comes to layering but true finesse in the art is when you can go monochrome without overdoing it. In the look above, Lily is having a crimson moment. She wore a posh quilted jacket over a pair of printed top and skirt coordinates in the same hue. For footwear, she goes for a bit darker for contrast with a pair of pointed-toe boots with a chunky block heel in patent leather.
