It looks like Elle Fanning is continuing her style marathon after nailing camp at the Met Gala last week, as the 21-year-old actor has already served a slew of sophisticated looks at the Cannes Film Festival. As the youngest member on the jury panel for the 10 day fest, the Super 8 star buttoned up for the job at hand, and Elle Fanning's pink suit proves structured silhouettes aren't slowing down for spring. Fanning hit the ground running as she touched down in Nice in a cream-colored trouser suit on Sun., continuing the menswear-inspired wave in a baby pink suit on Weds.
Cementing her fresh but refined sensibilities with the spritely set, Fanning demonstrated how to infuse playfulness into your look while still meaning business. Layered on top of a striped yellow and pink button-down top, the blush-toned suit was joined with accessories in the same feminine color family. With a fuchsia Balenciaga tote bag on one arm, Elle rocked rosy pink shades similar to a style she paired with cowboy boots and a flowy frock back in April. Setting the tone for pastel-toned springtime style, the Miu Miu ambassador proved pink-on-pink is 100 percent doable with the help of thoughtful styling.
With everyone from Bella Hadid to Amal Clooney suiting up for spring, it's clear that the work-ready trend is floating effortlessly into warmer months. Whether paired with chunky sneakers for a metropolitan spin, or given a femme twist via strappy sandals, the classic ensemble stands as a no-fail staple, regardless of which way your personal style sways.
As proven by Fanning's romantic color story, opting for a pastel hue is the simplest way to soften a boxy silhouette. Even if pink isn't for you, there are plenty of lighthearted hues that serve the same vibe, from pale purple to powder blue.
