variations on a theme

kirsten dunst attended a couple of shows during NY fashion week, this outfit was just perfect…

SHIRT – day: marc jacobs (american apparel has a nice budget option) / night: see by chloé – PANTS – day: tsumori chisato / night: alexander wang – SHOES – day: asos / night: isabel marant

i tagged along on a shopping trip with one of my best friends this weekend who was on a mission to find smart pieces that she could wear to work, that could also be versatile enough to use in day / night outfits. we actually man-handled those exact isabel marant shoes (amazing in blue, and i’m 99% sure they’re the same ones kirsten is actually wearing.)

that being said, this is the kind of outfit i would wear to work if i needed to push the smart scale up a couple of notches. then again i think it works beautifully for a night out too, as is the case with kirsten. any kind of menswear is awesome to me – and you can’t go wrong with a fitted white shirt (the peter pan collar is a nice girly touch without the frills.) probably the best thing about the entire outfit is the fact that she doesn’t need to wear a belt – perfect fit and tailoring

perhaps this is a bit of a ‘no duh’ post, but i think it’s important to remind ourselves of the simplicity of a good shirt.

    You’re absolutely right! Ad I love the shirt Kirsten is wearing. I was actually looking for a white shirt myself since I somehow seem to lack a good one, so thanks for the inspiration!
