All kinds of worlds are colliding down in Austin, Texas, for SXSW, and as you’d expect from a gathering that draws all sorts of people, there are some good outfits to see. Whether you’ve been wearing your warm-weather clothes for a while now or are still just mentally plotting outfits for the second the mercury creeps a bit higher (ugh, I’m with you), prepare for inspiration ahead.
Matchy-matchy is a total do these days, whether it’s a printed set or a dress slashed in the middle to give the illusion of one. This pick would look good globally, but I love how the warm desert colors give a nod to the Southwest location (and that it’s finished with comfy espadrilles, not towering stilettos).
These cute friends partied at a Farfetch dinner in more matching looks, albeit monochrome styles. Everything about it’s comfy, from the relaxed fits to the sturdy ankle boots, but sexy touches are present thanks to exposed shoulders and a lacy black bra.
I’m always blown away by basic outfits made extra special by the simplest touch. The white tee, lace-ups, and paper-bag pants that this gal picked for a Victor Cruz-hosted fete would have looked sharp on their own but with that casual scarf thrown over one shoulder? Day-um.
There were a ton of celebs in Texas, but Rose Byrne was the only one I had to include here because, hello, that outfit is genius. A below-the-knee skirt and boxy blazer wouldn’t scream sexy on their own, but styled with nearly nothing underneath definitely keeps it steamy. I’m really curious if she’s wearing the topper as a top or if there’s a super-low-cut tank under there. What do you think?
