For a recent premier of the new movie Sherlock Holmes (which I absolutely can not wait to see- I mean, have you seen Rachel McAdams in the trailer?) Jessica Szohr jazzed up a classic look with sequined tap shorts. I am especially in love with the idea of shorts and tights right now, a la Milla Jovovich and Blair Waldorf. Ms. Szohr looks age appropriate and fun in this ensemble.
Without a doubt, the highlight of this outfit is the sequined tap shorts: They are teeny tiny though, so the tights help to avoid the slutty halloween-costume look that everyone should avoid (not cute- am I right?). The basic striped tee and blazer balance out the super-young look on the bottom. Add some studded black peep-toes, a huge ring, and a metallic clutch and you have a fun but refined look. Essie Nail Polish in Mademoiselle is very similar to the pale, natural color Jessica is wearing. Including the nail polish, the entire outfit totals $148.00. If you’re NOT on a budget (lucky you!), check out this blazer–so perfect!
