The lady of the week this time around is 26-year-old actress, Blake Lively.
We’ve all seen her somewhere, from Gossip Girl, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Savages, or on Ryan Reynolds’ arm (they’re married), so we are all fairly familiar with the native Californian’s effortless sexy. On the red carpet, Blake goes ultra-glam, often showing of her body in curve hugging pieces; but, there is something unique about her: she lets the clothes do the work.
Blake completely embodies this idea of effortlessly sexy by letting her well-selected garments take center stage – there is no need for elaborate hair and makeup, or tons of accessories. She gives off kind of an, “I rolled out of bed and just threw on this gown” thing, and boy-oh-boy does it work for her!
Off duty, Blake maintains her easy style with a bit of a bohemian feel, with lots of jeans, slouchy tanks, infinity scarves and a pretty solid hat wardrobe.
Take some inspiration from Blake and feel effortlessly sexy – try mixing leggings with a slouchy sweater and killer pumps on an off day. For the office, try a curve-hugging pencil skirt in a unique material (leather would be cool), or deep color, paired with a flouncy peplum top.
On special occasions, take a cue from Blake and go for a menswear inspired evening look with some strappy heels. Take a look at the board below for some inspiration.
