Let's play a game of word association. Sky: blue, cat: dog, food: happiness, Jaime King: chic. She's like one of those fashionistas that can do absolutely no wrong, as evident by Jaime King's feathered skirt that married my two favorite styles: fun and sophisticated. How she manages to nail this each and every time, I'll never know. But I'd sure like to be looped in.
If you're not familiar with the style goddess herself, Jaime King is is an actress, and model, who's appeared in the pages of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, and has been seen on the big screen in movies like Pearl Harbor and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Oh, and if that's not enough, she's drank tea with Alexander McQueen. King told the Coveteur "Alexander McQueen taught me how to properly drink tea, with milk, sugar and biscuits. We would sit and talk about everything."
A peek in her closet shows everything from colorful statement bags, quirky shoes, and a sunglass collection nearly anybody would be jealous of. Somehow, she always manages to master the art of quirky and chic, and at the Who What Wear x Target launch party, she didn't let us down. King showed up in a delicate white top, feathered pencil midi skirt, Jimmy Choo pumps, and a simple black clutch. But what tied (literally) the whole look together? Her bow tie choker that I'll be copying for my outfit tomorrow, please and thanks.
Hello, perfection. Are you convinced yet? I'm loving the Western vibe that this look is giving me, too. Plus, I'm always a fan of winter whites. Want to take a style page out of Jaime's book? Check out these feathered items below.
