Emilia Clarke's Style Makes The Menswear Trend Look Easy

Share

The menswear trend has continued to dominate street-style looks and runway shows alike over the past few months, prompting women to consider structured suiting a wardrobe necessity. Not only can traditionally masculine styles make for more comfortable formalwear, the trend also offers the perfect opportunity to infuse outfits with an exciting touch (think: bold makeup, vibrant jewelry, and statement bags). Emilia Clarke's style proves just how easy it is to make the menswear trend your own, no matter the occasion.

The actor is no stranger to experimenting with fashion, hair, and beauty looks. This past Sept., Clarke went for the ultimate transformation when she cut her previously lob-length hair into a choppy pixie style. When it comes to her clothing, she loves to keep it interesting both on the red carpet and while out and about. Although her looks are often unique, she's demonstrated one common theme: her love of menswear-inspired pieces.

Ahead, The Zoe Report breaks down some of Clarke's very best looks, along with everything you'll need to recreate them yourself.

Hard Meets Soft

Clarke attended the 2018 British Academy Britannia Awards in Beverly Hills in Oct. sporting an extra inventive way to layer. Pairing a blazer with a formal dress not only keeps you warm, it also adds an edgy component to the look. Opt for a strong contrast in your ensemble by combining feminine and masculine pieces together in the form of a tulle dress and a structured jacket.

Boxy & Bold

Clarke effortlessly mastered airport style when she arrived to Cannes in May wearing a look that was equal parts comfortable and polished. The Game of Thrones actor paired high-waisted denim and a gray long-sleeve top with a bold, kelly-green blazer. The oversized jacket featured a boxy fit, structured lapels, and a three-button closure. A brightly colored blazer acts as a finishing touch to any relaxed look, keeping it both playful and sophisticated. Investing in a blazer like Clarke's will help elevate your over-worn jeans and t-shirt any day of the week.

Violeta

While it may not be your go-to hue, this bold shade of orange pairs well with any neutral you already have in your closet. Dress up a white tee with a pop of color and add high-waisted denim to keep it casual.

Suited Up

Clarke attended the premiere of HBO's My Dinner With Herve in Hollywood in Oct wearing the perfect look. Instead of opting for a floor-length gown, the actor fully suited up in a tuxedo-inspired outfit. This style is just as elegant as it is unique, with its plunging neckline, metallic buttons, and wide-leg trousers. She accessorized with minimalistic black pumps and a pair of small hoop earrings. Give your little black dress a rest for the holiday party circuit this season and try out a suit instead.

Although these pants look good in a suit set, they also work by themselves. Tuck in a printed blouse for a work-appropriate look that's comfortable, breathable, and easy to layer with.

Shades Of Gray

Wool is important for any winter wardrobe. This practical cold-weather fabric keeps you warm, while also looking tailored enough for a formal or professional setting. Clarke sported an all-gray outfit while out in New York City last May, consisting of a blazer, matching pants, a lace crop-top, and of course, a wool coat. A long-line piece like Clarke's could easily become an every day staple in your wardrobe, pairing flawlessly with everything from jeans to dresses.
