Blake Lively turned 28 today – Happy Birthday Blake! As the Gossip Girl actress is another year older and another year more fabulous, I’ve noticed that we can learn a lot from her style.
Blake is always glamorous, even when just running to the shops. As a busy working mum, she needs to make the most of the days she’s got promotional and acting commitments so she needs a look that will last her from day to night. An all black outfit means you can fit into a variety of situations and the key to giving it the A’list look is to find some figure flattering pieces. A pencil skirt is the way to start and Blake’s one is faux leather (as she’s a committed vegetarian). The River Island PU pencil skirt is very similar and goes perfectly with a crop top to help accentuate your curves. Try the South Ripple Box cropped jumper.
A pair of high heel sandals will make your legs appear leaner and help your bum look pert and if you’re wearing all black you can afford to be more adventurous with footwear. Blake’s wearing animal print sandals like the Glamorous snake print sandals.
The finishing touch to any day to night look is a cute handbag that you can shove in all your papers and your phone and diary, so you know where you’re going next. I think the Dune crossbody bag is like Blake’s with it’s black and gold detail.
