Dress Like Jennifer Lawrence With These 4 Perfectly Summer-y Pieces
Summer is fast approaching, and with it comes the desire of fashionistas to wear a Gatsby-inspired ensemble of cream or white. Of course, Jennifer Lawrence is already ahead of the game with a modern white-on-white outfit that would make even the most neon-inclined dresser envious.
In the dead of summer, when the temperature reads 80 degrees but feels more like 150, there is something so incredibly refreshing about wearing a crisp white ensemble, perhaps made with eyelet fabric or soft, aged cotton. The neutral color looks both refined and elegant, and doesn't have quite the heat-attracting properties of your favorite black suit. Lawrence's own ensemble has all of the qualities of the quintessential, grown-up summer ensemble: an embellished, sleeveless top; a lightly flared miniskirt, metallic pointy-toe pumps, and delicate drop earrings.
While the ensemble may not be office-appropriate, it is ideal for that weekend getaway/al fresco dinner date/concert in the park which you've been planning for weeks. If you're so enamored with the ensemble that you do wish to take it to your place of employment, simply make sure the skirt reaches your knees, and you have a blazer handy in case showing your shoulders is a faux pas. Whatever the occasion may be, J. Law (and her incredibly talented stylist) have you covered with this ensemble. Read on for the four pieces you need to recreate Lawrence's chic look.
1. An Embellished Crop Top
Lawrence's ensemble begins with a white, embellished crop top, but really any fitted, sleeveless top will do the trick. Simply choose a top in whichever shade of white or cream best suits your skin tone, and make sure the top has a structured fit. Because Lawrence's skirt is so voluminous, it's important to pair it with a top that isn't similarly tent-like. Try Alice + Olivia's Cropped Lace Tank for a sweet and seductive topper to your look.
2. A Flared Out Skirt
The Hunger Games star's crisp skirt is flattering for a number of reasons, the most vital of which is its bell shape. Because the skirt is full, not curve-hugging, it conceals any area between the lower stomach and knees which you may not want on display, thus creating an almost universally complimentary silhouette. AQ/AQ'S Shade Mini Skirt in Cream provides the perfect circular shade and clean lines to keep your ensemble streamlined.
3. Metallic Pumps
Pointy toe pumps are an absolute necessity for any true fashion devotee, even if they're a kitten heel or flats masquerading as something a bit taller. Lawrence's metallic silver pair perfectly complements her look, as they don't detract from the simplicity of the ensemble. Charles by Charles's David Pact 2 Pumps have a lightly distressed metallic finish to add understated elegance to the ensemble.
4. Iridescent Drop Earrings
Too much jewelry would degrade such a clean, fresh look, so Lawrence's only accessories are a pair of amethyst drop earrings, a thin bangle or two, and a ring. To recreate the look, keep your own jewelry to a minimum, with a focus on earrings that add a touch of color instead of overwhelming the outfit. Try Kendra Scott's Elle Small Oval Earrings, which have an iridescent violet hue, as a capper to your ensemble.
The look wouldn't be quite complete without Lawrence's signature tousled waves and luminous skin, so make sure to apply makeup with a light hand and keep your tresses lightly mussed for a perfectly imperfect look.
