If Emma Roberts ever decides she’s sick of acting, she should try styling on for size. Her fancy dresses are always among the best on the red carpet, but even when she’s just out and about in L.A., she puts together cool, clever, and, above all, appropriately casual outfits that feel unexpected.
Take yesterday, for example. On the eve of her 24th birthday, she was spotted shopping in a look that was, at first glance, totally low-key. But, as usual, her style mastery shines in the details. Her vintage Truckers Only T-shirt — a find so treasured it regularly fetches more than a hundred bucks on eBay — was effortlessly half-tucked into whiskered Elizabeth and James jeans. Throwing Rodarte’s equally prized snakeskin booties and a tasseled Gucci bag into the mix turned the standard jeans-and-tee combination into a full-on statement. She finished off the outfit with Quay cat-eye sunglasses, which are arguably as rad as the shoes and a sliver of the price. The best part, though? You can snag (most of) her outfit even if you aren't pulling in major birthday bucks anytime soon.
