Whether you have a closet stocked full with investment pieces and wardrobe essentials, or you have a slew of on-trend pieces, or even a solid mix of both, a new season is always the perfect time to revamp your style. After all, fashion is synonymous with change—as the season’s pass from spring to fall, and back to spring again, new collections come and go, trends transform from of-the-moment to out-of-date, and you, dear reader, almost certainly reach new highs in life. In view of that, we are introducing a new feature—Seasonal Style—that spotlights how some of our favorite celebrity muses are taking on the changing seasons. Of course, our first stylish subject—British actress Sienna Miller—is no stranger to seasonal whims thanks to her jet-setting lifestyle. Whether she’s rocking a mini red romper for spring in New York City or sporting a faux fur chubby for winter in London, one thing is certain: Sienna knows how to make the most of the ever-changing weather. With that, we present our inaugural edition of Seasonal Style! Read on!
Now that fall is almost upon us, we’re heads-over-heels for inspirational autumnal looks. For that reason, our eyes were instantly drawn to this utilitarian ensemble, which Sienna wore while out and about in New York City in November 2009. It is cozy, comfortable and, most importantly, chic—the perfect combination for chilly fall weather! Now, onto the details. The key to Sienna’s fall style is lightweight layers and autumnal colors. We love the trio of shades Sienna has put together—her taupe jacket and heather-gray skinny jeans are complemented perfectly by the warm crimson hue of her Prada bag—but we are particularly smitten with Sienna’s layering technique. Underneath her military jacket, you’ll see a floaty cotton top, which is perfect for when the sun comes out. To take on Sienna’s fall style, we recommend pairing MICHAEL Michael Kors’ Military Jacket ($130) with 7 For All Mankind’s Roxanne Skinny Slimmer Jeans ($124.60), and then adding a pair of Jeffrey Campbell’s Biz Boots ($117). Finish off your look with Isabel Lu’s Silk Cotton Embroidered Blouse ($113).
If one thing is apparent, it is that Sienna stays true to herself as she moves from season to season. In fact, we love how her winter look is just a slightly cozier version of her fall ensemble—her military-style coat is a little weightier, her collar is pulled up high around her neck, and her blonde locks are tucked into a knit beanie. (It doesn’t hurt that her hands are warmed with cups of hot coffee, either.) Similarly, her favored color palette has changed: instead of neutral hues and warm autumnal shades, Sienna has opted for an almost all-black palette, with the odd hint of gray. If you want to get your hands on a similarly winter-ready look, start with Priorities’ Evelyn Removable Cuff Jacket ($123) or O’Neill’s Lennon Coat ($83.50). Throw on Cheap Monday’s Second Skin Skinny Jeans ($65) and Lowie’s Chunky Merino Pom Beanie ($75.83), and then finish off with House of Harlow 1960’s Talia Suede Boots ($295).
Just as Sienna’s fall and winter ensembles are low-key and composed of muted colors, her spring and summer ensembles are bright, lively and spirited. For example, we love the mini red romper she wore while out and about in New York City in May 2010. Not only is it an ideal morning-after outfit—the 2010 Met Ball was held the night before—but it is also the perfect outfit to ring-in the spring/summer season, thanks to its skin-baring silhouette and vivid tone. Of course, a new season calls for a new beauty look too: notice how Sienna’s hair is free and flowing? To emulate Sienna’s smart spring look, start with a bright romper—we like Karina Grimaldi’s Lizzy Romper ($55.50) and Roxy’s Day Trip Romper ($34.65)—and then add a pair of Cooperative’s Classic Jazz Oxford Shoes ($38). For a playful touch, add Prada’s Large Cat’s Eye Sunglasses ($225).
As it was with fall/winter, you’ll notice that Sienna’s summer style is just a slight variation on her spring aesthetic. Just look at the carefree outfit Sienna wore last summer: instead of a red romper, she wore a breezy white skirt; instead of black jazz shoes, she opted for a light cream iteration; and, in place of dark sunglasses, there are clear shades. As for her beauty regime, there’s a decidedly natural look about Sienna, which is perfect for sticky summer days. The overall verdict: in summer, Sienna prefers a lighter, untroubled look. To give Sienna’s summery style a try, start with Sauce’s Warrior Top ($62) and tuck it into a easy white skirt—we like Free People’s Mini Peasant Skirt ($37.07) and Lungta De Fancy’s Layered Frill Mini Skirt ($42.13). Give your ensemble a chic twist with J Crew’s Camden Tipped Brogues ($250) and Adele Marie’s Statement Bead Necklace ($40.44).
