There are many, many up-and-coming actresses worth paying attention to, but the latest to pop up on our radar—Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz—has more than just acting skills to offer. Yes, dear readers, the subject of today’s It Girl story is certainly one to watch. She has garnered plenty of attention for her acting prowess, not to mention an award or two, plus she consistently wows on the red carpet thanks to her eye for style. And did we mention that she also has a knack for putting together perfect off-duty outfits? On that note, read on for all the details on Chloe’s personal style and make sure you take notes!
1. Finding the right balance between casual and chic can be tricky, but we think Chloe mastered it when she stepped out earlier this year in Los Angeles wearing a biker jacket, skinny jeans and sneakers. The sneakers and jeans have a low-key vibe, making the outfit perfect for running errands, but the leather biker jacket gives the ensemble a luxe twist. We also love how age-appropriate this look is. You can make this look your own by picking up Victoria’s Secret’s Motorcycle Jacket ($258) or Topshop’s Quilted Biker Jacket ($340) and pairing it with Gap’s 1969 Always Skinny Jeans ($69.95). A pair of Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Stars ($35.20) will complete the look.
2. Earlier this summer, Chloe attended the launch of the DSquared2 Classic Collection in London wearing a peach DSquared2 dress and Rupert Sanderson heels. There are many things to love about this ensemble, but we particularly like the color palette. The soft peach hue of her dress is a tricky color to pull off, but on Chloe it looks fresh and feminine. Plus, we love how it stands out against the grey-violet tone of her shoes. To create an equally fresh ensemble, team Amanda Uprichard’s Bouquet Petal Dress ($98.99) or Orion’s Frill Top Dress ($40.25) with a pair of Jessica Simpson’s Elso Sandals ($89) in clapton grey patent.
3. Last month, Chloe attended a screening of Kick-Ass in London wearing a rainbow Christopher Kane dress and strappy black sandals. Now, a dress like this takes confidence, but we think Chloe pulls it off with panache. The key to her look is balance. By pairing her bold dress with soft hair and understated sandals, Chloe has created an outfit that stands out from the crowd but doesn’t scream “look at me.” Balance! On that note, you can make this look your own by picking up Proenza Schouler’s Asymmetrical Button-Front Dress ($635) or Awear’s Feather Print Dress ($40.25) and pairing it with Aldo’s Toolan Heels ($50).
4. One of the things we love most about Chloe’s personal style is that she always errs on the side of youthfulness. For proof, just look at the ensemble Chloe wore to the Virgin Mobile V Festival in England last month. The outfit—a plaid shirt, denim shorts, biker boots, and a daisy-chain headband—has an edgy rocker-chic element, but the daisy-chain makes it feel both whimsical and youthful. Inspired? Put together a similarly stylish look by picking up Rails’ Kendra Gauze Plaid Shirt ($107) and Topshop’s Moto Black Denim Wide Stripe Shorts ($70) and accessorizing with Jeffrey Campbell’s Rouges Buckle Wrap Boots ($237) and Eddera’s Three Flower Headband ($179).
