Dua Lipa Wore the Sophisticated Jacket That Looks Pretty With Skirts *and* Jeans

Out of all the street-style stars across Los Angeles and NYC, I can’t think of a single one who is more loyal to the oversized look than Dua Lipa. She’s been regularly donning slouchy denim and big blazers for years now. But recently, it seems that while her opinion on anti-skinny jeans hasn’t changed, her tastes when it comes to jackets have shifted significantly. Instead of a loose-fitting blazer, she’s now opting for top layers that are quite a bit more fitted and tailored.

I came to this conclusion this morning after spotting photos of the “Houdini” singer walking hand-in-hand with her boyfriend Callum Turner in New York City. In images of the couple, rather than her usual oversized jackets, she can be seen wearing a slim-fit blazer with a round, collarless neck and wide, almost bell-like sleeves. With the sophisticated topper, she added mid-wash relaxed denim, black kitten-heel mules, and Bottega Veneta’s latest It bag called the Kalimero Cha-Cha. She finished off the look with a pair of ’90s-inspired tortoiseshell sunglasses.

Fitted jackets like Lipa’s have slowly but surely begun infiltrating the fashion landscape, where, just a few seasons ago, voluminous blazers were all anyone bought or talked about. These days, though, as consumers lean into more timeless, elegant silhouettes, tailored alternatives are taking on a more significant role in fashion, whether they’re styled Lipa’s way with baggy denim or in a more dressed-up manner, with a silky slip or cotton A-line skirt. The styling possibilities with a fitted jacket like the 11 below are truly endless. Scroll down to see what I mean.
