Fashion Toast : Street Style

To me, Lily Donaldson is insane. As in, the fact that she exists. And that she could convincingly play Legolas' pulchritudinous older sister. To put it succintly, she has taken ethereal to a whole new playing field.

Perhaps aware of this awkward yawning gap between her and approx. the rest of the planet Earth, she offsets her cool beauty with plain but edgy pieces. Unlike mix master Gemma, walking wtf Agyness Deyn, sexy cazh Gisele, and belongs-in-Harajuku Iekeliene (ooh think I spelled it right on the first try!), Lily is pretty much the queen of basics. But they are all the perfect basic piece. As in: the supply worn in ballet flat, the ideally slouchy plaid buttondown, the gray tee, the artfully destroyed denim shorts, the black carryall, blah blah blah. Yes she's one of those. Annoying, but we can study this master and perhaps even dream of having similarly perfectly pared down wardrobes.

On the upside is that many of her pieces are so plebeian as to be a stride into American Apparel and a couple frenetic clicks on eBay away. She seems to go for the tri-blend very frequently at minimum, opting for the beloved raglan pullover, racerback tank, track t, and deep v. Add in a couple outerwear classics like the navy blazer and shrunken leather, and always go for standout accessories like studded anything, a reliable outlandishly large bag, or a simple hat. Lils tends to keep it considerably sleek legwise, with the skinniest jeans, body-concious high waisted minis, and denim shorts. And lastly, always (duh), make your look personal by adding signature you-ish pieces or mixing things up in an unexpected way. Methinks Lily would approve.
