Based on the results of Tuesday’s Twilight poll, Ashley Greene’s look was your favorite at the L.A. premiere of Eclipse. Let’s call this style ‘Intricate Simplicity.’ Not only do I really like those two words together, but I can’t think of a better way to describe a look that’s plain without being ordinary; I mean, other than the gold bracelet, she isn’t even wearing jewelry! I heard someone say it looked like she was going to a toga party; it must have been the hottest, greatest toga party ever! I’ve asked the stylists for a few quick tips on how to do something similar—although maybe a little more wearable at non-toga parties. Here’s their advice:
- Stick with the monochromatic gray scheme. If you’re hungry for color, look for grays that have baby blue or sage undertones.
- Keep it simple; but how simple is up to you. A tank dress is as basic as it gets, so you may want to find a piece that also features gathered elements, which add complexity and movement to the look.
- Ashley’s look isn’t all about the shoes. You, however, can draw more attention to your stunning shoes by contrasting the single-color, matte finish of your dress with something metallic, like Aven, or two-toned, like Carolina.
- As you can tell by her silver clutch and gold bracelet, Ashley isn’t afraid to mix metals. Bangles like Treasure Chest in silver will reinforce the gray palette; a touch of gold will add visual interest and reinforce the glow of a great tan. An accessory like your Robertson clutch will provide both: the gray and the gold.
