Sophie Turner’s Leather Shirt Is An Edgy Update To Your Favorite Button-Down
Mix elegance with edge, and you have Sophie Turner's leather shirt and pants outfit. The actor is officially back in the Big Apple after vacationing with friends and family in Miami, and to no surprise, she's traded in her swimsuits and beach slides for pieces that are decidedly more New York. If you're looking for an easy way to update your closet right now, allow Turner to officially introduce you to the coolest take on a wardrobe staple that can quickly read boring.
On April 2, Turner stepped out for an appearance on Good Morning America (alongside her Game of Thrones co-star, Maisie Williams), where she talked about the final season of GOT — which, according to both actors, has an ending that's sure to receive mixed emotions from fans.
For the occasion, Turner, who's quickly become the queen of casual-cool off-duty looks, took a slightly more edgy-chic route. She swapped her usual light-wash jeans for a pair of breezy black Proenza Schouler trousers, which featured a paperbag waist and an oversized, wide-leg silhouette.
Though graphic tees are Turner's street-style signature, she opted for something a bit more trend-forward in the form of a short-sleeve leather shirt, also by Proenza Schouler. In addition to the all-over leather design, contrasting white stitching and flap shoulder pockets took this button-down to an entirely new level of cool.
Searching for a way to breath life into your workwear wardrobe? Turner's leather button-down — the 2019 take on an otherwise straight-edge office classic — is the key.
Turner rounded out her outfit with a mid-height, über-voluminous ponytail — which put her pink jelly hoop earrings from jewelry designer-of-the moment, Alison Lou, on full display — and a bold cat-eye and a nude, gloss-coated lip, courtesy of makeup artist Georgie Eisdell.
Leather-rendered anything, from trench coats to pants to shirts, is having a major moment right now — and Turner's GMA outfit is the latest example of how to tackle the trend in the daytime.
