Celeb Style: Tough T-Shirts and Sophisticated Skirts


Turn up the toughness on a sexy skirt and heels by juxtaposing the ladylike pieces down low with an irreverent tee up top. This look is too cool for school, as exemplified by Olivia Wilde, Naya Rivera, and Miley Cyrus who have all nailed the edgy ensemble this season.

Wilde walked the red carpet for her latest film, Drinking Buddies, in a Bruce Springsteen concert t-shirt tucked into an uneven skirt by Robert Rodriguez, finished off with killer black pumps. We love that she chose to go with a look different from the conventional movie premiere styles we are used to seeing. Wilde's smokey eyeliner and tousled waves brought the rocker vibe full circle–the perfect beauty touches to pull off a band tee with.

Glee's Naya Rivera did the casual top, sophisticated skirt pairing too this August, going for less of a rock 'n roll look in exchange for something a bit funkier than Wilde's style. She matched a fun superman logo tee with a leather pencil skirtĀ for her visit to the Power 106 radio station to debut of her new single “Sorry,” topping the outfit off with a yellow clutch and retro aqua heels.

Last but not least, we couldn't expect free spirited and stylish Cyrus to have not tried this alternative look. She wore Balenciaga's re-released Join a Weird Trip Sphinx printed t-shirt over a mini to her BBC Radio Studio 1 visit last month in London. Follow her lead and add untraditional, head turning accessories to up the ante on your already edgy look. Cyrus chose bold gold accessories and snake skin ankle strap sandals for extra punch.
