I have style icons I admire on the red carpet, then I have style icons who I follow on Instagram, repeatedly directing myself to their pages just to see what they’ve been wearing. Most of these celebrities have fan accounts, too. While I can’t say I have the time to dedicate to creating one of those myself (god bless @kendalljennercloset and her speedy updates!), if I did investigate anyone’s wardrobe, it’d be Zoë Kravitz. The Big Little Lies star operates on a whole different level of street style cool – one I didn’t even know existed.
When she stepped out in New York City for the 2019 Hulu Upfront, she exhibited her prowess in lime-green slacks, a men’s striped shirt worn undone and oversize over a lace camisole, and a long suede duster. Zoë accessorized with a covetable croc-effect By Far bag in sage, slightly offsetting her slime pants. While some might pull together the look with a pair of white sneakers or a crisp bootie, Zoë dressed for her petite frame in ladylike pumps that gave her just a small boost. Oh, and she painted her nails a neon shade to match, thankyouverymuch.
Zoë was ’90s meets 2019 in her nameplate necklace and printed tiny sunglasses, and that’s the look so many women are going for right now, myself included. But it all starts with the foundation of bold trousers and a top-handle bag. You can add your own crop top and ask your guy friend or your dad for his old button-down. I fully support your decision to attempt an outfit as cool as Zoë’s, because babe, I’m right there with you.
