Gemma Chan’s Purple Skirt Is The $125 Spring Staple You Need Right Now
Gemma Chan has been serving up covetable looks left and right in 2019 — and not just on the red carpet. The Crazy Rich Asians actor emerged as a true street-style force this season, and every getup she's pieced together thus far only further solidifies the tastemaker's authority on fashion. From the fun fringe pants she rocked in March to the purple skirt she just wore, Chan has quickly become a go-to for refined yet trend-forward closet essentials that boast countless styling possibilities.
The pre Met Gala weekend is, undoubtedly, a hectic one, but Chan made sure to pencil in a bit of time on May 4 to attend the Dia:Beacon’s Spring Benefit, an event that "raises crucial funds for Dia:Beacon’s special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs," per the website. Notable names that turned out for the gathering included model Liya Kebede, Glenn Close, Christina Ricci, and, of course, Chan, all of whom were truly dressed to the nines.
Chan looked the epitome of springtime chic during the benefit, donning a two-piece ensemble that aligned perfectly with her usual style aesthetic — chic, refined, yet playful. The actor stunned in a watercolor-inspired long-sleeve top and a lilac high-waisted skirt from COS.
Chan's skirt, which features an A-line silhouette, hidden side pocket at the seam, and a wide waist belt, is both easy on the eyes and your bank account. Ringing in at a reasonable $125, the actor's latest COS find is one surefire way to liven up your spring lineup without burning a hole in your wallet.
The actor rounded out her look with pastel-yellow heels (complete with bow detailing on the front) and diamond earrings. Sticking to her usual beauty routine, Chan opted for soft waves and a subtle swipe of pink lipstick.
If you want to get your hand on Chan's exact skirt, you might want to act sooner rather than later, because sizes are selling out — and fast. Shop the actor's COS find while it's still available, as well are more of The Zoe Report's favorite spring skirts, below.
