Olivia Wilde has been busy promoting her new film, Booksmart, all over New York City and looking devastatingly stylish along the way. The actor-turned-director has stunned in a feathery cape, a paisley-print dress, and a sheer leopard top and maxi skirt ensemble all in the past week. Now, Olivia Wilde's latest navy suit is showing everyone how transitional dressing is done.
On Thurs., the 35-year-old House veteran was spotted outside of BuzzFeed Studios, where she made an appearance on the AM to DM live morning show to talk about her inaugural directorial role. It was her outfit, though, that really stole the show.
Wilde wore the coolest navy-blue bellbottoms and matching double-breasted blazer with contrasting buttons. The layer — actually named the Bianca after Bianca Jagger — has a wide-wale corduroy finish and sharp padded shoulders that lend to its distinctive '70s aesthetic.
Paired over a white graphic tee with yellow writing and bright-red pumps gave her old-school Bella Freud separates a super modern feel. The classic smart suit can get slightly stale with the neutral shades they commonly come in, but not with Wilde's bold color combinations.
The actor's retro set screamed spring, thanks to its diverse color scheme, but kept her perfectly warm against the May chill as well.
This is the kind of balance you want between seasons, after all. It's tough to part with your habitual suit look after winter's over, but you don't have to swap them all for summer dresses just yet, according to Wilde's latest.
Simply throw in a bold-colored accessory and unbutton the blazer to expose a graphic tee underneath and there you have it: the perfect cool-girl work look fit for spring.
