Lana promoted her Other Versions Of You project by delving into a side of her fashion we have not seen before: a smarty hipster chick, who rules the world in polka dots and twill. I LOVE this so much! Not only is it a wildly fun departure from her usual glamorous style, but it also explores a facet of fashion we see from almost no other diva (Alicia Fox is one exception I can think of!). Lana chose a polka dot blouse in chic navy for this look and paired with gray chinos, a fabulous pant variation that vaguely polished and way under-used in Divadom. She added a femme-but-chill twist with lace sneakers and ramped up the smarty side of her styling with glasses. Her softly waved and sideswept hair kept the whole look relaxed and pretty, yet not so polished that it came off jarringly fierce. To recreate Lana's look, reach for your nearest polka dot button-down. Alternatively, go for something striped. Don't button it to the top - leave the fist one or two open to give off that cool girl aura. (Layer a thermal (or my favorite, Icebreaker base layers) underneath for extra warmth on nippy days). Stay with neutral tones to keep the look classic. Next, add chinos in your favorite silhouette: boyfriend, slim, cropped. You can also do this with suit pants - they'll add a bit more formality to your look, but not so much that it can't be balanced out by a casual accessory, like a knit scarf or open vest. I especially love the hipster twist the vest adds to this look. Finish with lace sneakers (or iconic Keds :)) Then again, maybe the smarty version of you is a little more glam and prep than hip. In that case, add a metallic belt and finish the look with loafer flats instead of sneakers. Include your favorite pair of glasses, or do your hair in a prim style: a classic twisted bun, sideswept bangs baretted straight to one side, or a simple mid-height pony. You may also want also want to carry a spiral notebook (dog-earred pages encouraged!) and tuck a pencil behind your ear for that authentic smarter-than-thou flair ;). I hope this inspires you to get your smart on sometime soon, loves! Happy styling!
