Young actress Kate Mara shows us the perfect outfit for a casual dinner date whilst out in New York. The outfit is both understated elegance with a nod to preppy chic. She is also wearing the new fashion favourite – the skort. The plaid shirt keeps the look from being over-dressy and age appropriate however the grey blazer smartens the outfit enough for dinner at the swankiest of restaurants. Finish with a pair of loafers and Kate is ready to run away from any paparazzi.
Regarding make-up and accessories not much is needed otherwise the look will look too put together. May be add a few stacking bracelets. Keep make-up to barely there and lips should be nude. Any bright colours would also ruin the balance of the look.
We have chosen a great Isabel Marant plaid shirt as our Butterboom pick for Kate Mara’s outfit. The designer is known for her effortlessly cool designs-perfect to recreate Kate’s look. We have also found a smart black pair of skorts from Robert Rodriguez. This pair of skorts will last throughout the summer months. Dress them down like Kate with a plaid shirt or even a cool T-shirt or smarten them up with a crisp white shirt and some killer heels. The grey blazer we have chosen is from Damir Doma. To finish the look, we could not resist these flats from The Blonde Salad super blogger Chiara Ferragni.
