Twilight star Nikki Reed nailed the tricky smart/casual mix as she hosted an event in LA yesterday. While we love swooning over fantasy frocks, it’s a refreshing change to see an A-lister work the red carpet in a look we can actually copy! Nikki’s ensemble couldn’t be simpler – we’ve all got skinny jeans and a white shirt in our wardrobes right? – but it’s the attention-grabbing accessories and clever styling tricks that add polish.
Flicking up her shirt collar, cuffing the sleeves and doing the ‘half-tuck’, (which LOOK championed a while back) take her outfit from basic to statement. Just add killer heels – we love how Nikki’s added a pop of colour – and a smattering of jewels. Don’t just save your chic clutch bags for after dark either, switching your day tote for some compact arm candy is a fast track to glamming up your jeans and shirt combo. GG
