Priyanka Chopra's Checked Blazer & Floral Maxi Skirt Is An Unexpected Fall Combo
You almost definitely have some version of Priyanka Chopra's checked blazer, floral maxi skirt, and lacy camisole floating around in your closet. Never, however, did you think the unlikely combination would pair so perfectly together until the actor's little PSA at Tues.'s U.S. Open.
The most prestigious tennis match this side of the Atlantic Ocean is bound to be a star-studded event. It's like the American version of Wimbledon, after all, which is to say: the outfits are everything.
Never has fashion been so important to a sport as it is among the folks in VIP boxes at a grand slam tennis tournament. Chopra, for one, refused to be outdone, turning up in head-to-toe Paco Rabanne.
If you're not familiar with the iconic Spanish designer, he's best known as the enfant terrible of the '60s. You have Rabanne to blame for those gawdy chain mail bags that were cool 50-some years ago and about to be cool again.
Chopra carried the nostalgic handbag — a revamp of the one from 1969, which current creative director Julien Dossena has just recently brought back to life — as she headed into the sporting event in New York City.
A quirky combo, to say the least, Chopra's mismatched prints and textures worked well enough together for you to want to copy her this fall.
No, you didn't think that floral slip skirt was wearable past Sept. — nor your favorite white lacy tank, for that matter — but the actor's throwback grandad blazer made the summery pieces autumn-acceptable.
The plaid print on the blazer went as well with the flowers on her skirt as the delicate lace of its hem went with the burly material of the bag. It all came together for a street style look worthy of headlines in the end.
The only piece that wasn't by Paco Rabanne was her shoes, a pair of $173 strappy mules by Tony Bianco.
