A year and a half later after she wore it, Leighton Meester’s ensemble from the 2008 Versace Menswear Launch is still one of my favorites. It offers a brilliant interpretation of the ‘less is more’ philosophy that will never go out of style.
Instead of choosing loud patterns and colors, Leighton sticks to a simple dress and accessories whose distinctly different colors pop. Remember, the electric blue is always a great choice. Not only is it gorgeous, it also suits just about all skin tones.
One thing to keep in mind when replicating Leighton’s look is your body shape. Bubble dresses are ideal for women who have narrow hips. If you are heavier on the bottom, choose a v-neck dress with a different skirt style in order to avoid over-emphasizing this area.
Methinks this understated yet sharp outfit would make Blair Waldorf jealous. Enjoy.
