Laura Harrier's Red Carpet Style Is Defined By Two-Piece Sets
Fashion is all about finding the next big thing, and thankfully, there are plenty of celebrities ready and able to provide their fans with endless style inspiration. That's why when a fresh face comes on the scene, people take note. It's no secret that Laura Harrier's red carpet style has been a true highlight of the 2019 awards season — and emulating her look may be easier than you think.
If you haven't followed Harrier's journey into the style spotlight, it's about time you get on board. The 28-year-old actor, who made a name for herself this year with her role in BlacKkKlansman, has shown off her innovative style both on and off the red carpet. And when she's not wowing onlookers with an elaborate gown, you can find Harrier in one of her go-to looks: a two-piece set.
Her affinity for cute co-ords might make you want to take a break from dress shopping, as these pieces work together and separately to produce countless styling options. Think about it: You can wear a set with heels for date night or dress it down under a denim jacket for weekend errands — you've got plenty of room to play around with the look. Ahead, explore The Zoe Report's roundup of Harrier's best two-piece sets, as well as similar items you can buy to recreate her style immediately .
Harrier arrived to the 30th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards Gala on Jan. 3 wearing a icy white skirt set. The feather-adorned bustier was subtly offset by a form-fitting maxi skirt that sat just above her natural waist. She added a few extra doses of sparkle in the form of a glittery box clutch, a diamond necklace, and of course, her famously dewy complexion.
In recent months, the fashion world has proved that white can be worn all year long. An unexpected upgrade from your over-worn white dress, this two-piece set adds a cheeky element of sophistication to an old classic.
Pair this white crop with its matching skirt for a formal look or try it with black denim on a casual night out.
The fringe detail on the hem of this super-straight midi skirt makes it a playful addition to your collection of formalwear.

With the ability to be worn together or as separates, these pieces were practically made as a simple backdrop for your favorite accessories. Add a statement earring, a printed shoe, or a bold necklace to turn up the volume on this classic set.
A day before her iconic outfit at the 2019 Golden Globes, Harrier attended the BAFTA Tea Party at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills on Jan. 5. The BlacKkKlansman actor donned a playful marigold set by Altuzarra, featuring a midi skirt, a halter top, and a shoulder shrug, all which were fully covered in sequins. She completed the look with matching coral-toned lipstick and a pair of burnt orange heels.
As warm weather approaches (it will be here sooner than you think!), more and more flower-adorned pieces will line the racks of your favorite stores. Opting for a two-piece set is an easy way to make a super-girly print a bit more edgy. If you want to take it a step further, add a leather moto jacket, thigh-high boots, or even a mesh undershirt.

Rose Satin Blouse and Midi Skirt Set
Suit up for cold-weather season by wearing this set over a pair of opaque tights and adding a cozy faux fur on top. Once spring hits, swap out boots for sandals and wear a brightly colored clutch as an accent piece.
While promoting Spiderman: Homecoming in 2017, Harrier sported a unique look for a screening in New York City. Rather than walk the red carpet in a formal gown or an expected blazer-skirt-combination, the actor opted for cream trousers that hit right above the ankle, paired with a cap-sleeve top with industrial closures. She dressed up the seemingly casual ensemble with the addition of loose curls, red lips, and strappy heeled sandals.
Even Harrier knows that sometimes wearing a skirt is just out of the question. Whether you're planning to spend the day on your feet or you're anticipating freezing temperatures, a pants set is a foolproof option.
Samson Two Piece
Combine a few of the year's most popular trends with this snakeskin set. Dress it up for a formal event like Harrier by adding a pair of stilettos and a swipe of lipstick, or make it casual with a pair of sneakers, a fleece jacket, and a messy bun.

While it may look pajama-inspired, this silky lilac top is far from sleepwear. Pair it with the matching pants for an all-purple look or throw it on with black denim and boots on your next night out.

Arguably her easiest two-piece combination, Harrier was photographed at a KENZO event in New York City in Sept. 2016 wearing a relaxed-looking cropped t-shirt paired with a flouncy midi. Proving there are always new ways to style items you already have hanging in your closet, the actor's look requires little effort to recreate at home. Consider this outfit the uncomplicated answer to a day when you feel like you have nothing to wear — just style it with a statement jacket, bold shoes, or a vibrant lip.
