1/21/11 Darling of the Day: Zoe Saldana!


I went a little further back in the style logs to find today’s look.  While it’s still winter out & definitely mighty cold in New York, I was looking for a go-to comfortable, yet stylish ensemble.  Zoe Saldana wore this equestrian-inspired look to a Pepsi event in Los Angeles, just about this time last year.  This three-piece look includes a black turtleneck, fitted leggings, & knee-high boots, creating a lean & stylish way to wear your basics.  Perhaps you could subtitute a red turtleneck or maybe jeggings to add some dimension, but Zoe’s all-black look brings that LBD glamour to daytime. 

 To recreate this very basic look, my only advice would be to match up your blacks.  Sometimes, I’ve found, that some blacks look a little more gray, while others that may be washed out could appear green. To make your turtleneck look less frompy, make sure it hits right at your hips (if you have Zoe’s shape) & scrunch up the sleeves at your elbows. 

  

 Here are a few suggested accesssories, if you’re looking to jazz up a minimal look like this, but keep in mind that carefully picking out one item to be the star of your look is essential!
