VB VIP—Emilia Clarke Takes Equestrian Style From Country to City

While everyone bundles up to combat the chilly temperatures, others are stepping out in fluid silhouettes as an antidote to the winter blues. And last month in New York City, Emilia Clarke masterfully honed in on a layered approach to dressing for less than ideal conditions while promoting her film, Last Christmas. The foundation for Clarke’s look was rooted in her midi dress which brought country style—note the bridle print—into city territory with a few easy styling maneuvers.

Clarke’s penchant for polished accessories amped up the effect of her prim dress with a nod to Network-era style. A bi-colour lightweight trench dusted Clarke’s shoulders for an effortless, cape-like effect, while a cherry red handbag provided a bold foil for her muted palette. Bringing everything together was a waist-defining leather belt which mimicked the dress’s motif and optic white pumps which grounded Clarke’s look with a modish finish.
