Easy does it in a near-flawless ensemble that keeps you comfortable and stylish on those brisk late fall days. Granted, Lucy Hale probably isn’t braving super heavy winds in Los Angeles, but she does look 100% on point in attire that is practical, warm, and chic all at once. This outfit is just right to see you through days and nights when you need the layers without the bulk.
What’s most effective about her look is its versatility. Perfect to wear during a relaxed errand run, brunch with friends, a low-key lunch date, or as an alternative to standard yoga pants and tees, this is a genius take on off-duty chic. If you’ve thought forever about retiring your usual go-tos — those slightly sloppy but still acceptable tops and bottoms you pull out without a second thought — this is a great way to reset.
Mix and Match
You can also mix and match the pieces to make the more integral parts of your wardrobe. Animal prints easily perk up subdued looks. Even your most basic basics look more alluring when they’re accented by a fierce leopard pattern.
Sleek skinny jeans go with everything from plush cardigans to airy tunics. And nothing says fashionable like a posh handbag that’s large enough for your essentials, but not so enormous that it weighs down your entire ensemble.
Finish with a pair of rugged black ankle boots and you’ll be primed for anything the day might bring.
Lucy Hale Style for Less
Best of all, this effortlessly polished-meets-casual look that Lucy sports with ease is simple to achieve without putting a massive hole in your wallet. You can also experiment with different animal prints if you’re more, say, a zebra or a cheetah gal. Here’s how to make it your own.
Lucy’s choice is the Saylor Faux Fur Emanuela Bomber Jacket, which will cost you a cool $375. It’s fabulous, but not that fabulous.
