It is no secret that East Coasters think the East Coast is better at everything and West Coasters think the West Coast is top of the heap. So, how do we settle this? While we may not be able to resolve this longstanding battle ourselves, we can provide you with a fun fashion story: a summer style showdown between Los Angeles and New York City. Ready? Let the games begin!
Going to bat for Los Angeles in the “Stylish Separates” arena is Rachel Bilson, who was recently spotted wearing a slouchy black tee, denim cut-offs, a structured white satchel, and leopard-print wedges. For the New York City team, we have Miranda Kerr, who was spotted out and about recently in a sleeveless button-down Equipment shirt, tailored trousers, and black pumps. Both ladies waved the flag for their respective abodes by staying true to the aesthetic of that city. While Rachel opted for a casually-chic look with a few statement accessories, Miranda stayed faithful to New York’s dedicated uniform of tailored pieces in neutral colors. So, who won the “Stylish Separates” battle in your opinion?
- You can make Rachel’s look your own with these pieces: Wilt’s Slub Shrunken Boyfriend Tee ($61), Genetic Denim’s Lost Boy Cut-Off Shorts ($58), Dooney & Bourke’s Davis Shopper ($268), and Hive & Honey’s Godfrey Wedges ($50).
- You can make Miranda’s look your own with these pieces: Equipment’s Signature Sleeveless Blouse ($188), Zara’s Printed Trousers ($80), and ASOS’s Shine Patent Pointed Court Shoes ($22).
On the Los Angeles team in the “Feminine Frocks” arena, we have Kirsten Dunst, who was seen out and about recently in a pale blush frock, flat black sandals, and a simple black shoulder bag. For the New York City team, we have Anne Hathaway, who was recently spotted wearing a black lace shift dress, ballet flats, and a delicate gold chain. Once again, both ladies stayed true to the roots of each city: while Kirsten opted for feminine colors and simple-yet-stylish accessories, Anne channeled Holly Golightly, the protagonist in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, with her chic short-do and all-black ensemble. So, who do you think won the “Feminine Frocks” campaign?
- You can make Kirsten’s look your own with these pieces: Topshop’s Textured Shift Dress ($92), Rachel Zoe’s Gladys Flat Sandals ($235), and Michael Kors’s Rectangular Shoulder Flap Bag ($417).
- You can make Anne’s look your own with these pieces: Calvin Klein’s Sleeveless Lace Front Shift Dress ($125), J Crew’s Janey Patent Flats ($178), and Marc by Marc Jacobs’s Dreamy Logo Delicate Sweetie Pendant Necklace ($58).
