She came to prominence playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series but now Emma Watson has well and truly shed her cape and wand and is set to star in the live action remake of Beauty and the Beast and is also busy with her work as a UN Women Goodwill ambassador. Having grown up in the spotlight Watson’s style has undergone an evolution right in front of our eyes from cute tween to slightly awkward teen and now to the understated and sophisticated fashion icon she is today.
I think every woman should own a suit that makes her feel like she can conquer the world. A simple tailored black suit is a worthwhile investment as not only is it office-appropriate, with the right pairing of shoes and accessories it makes a great go-to option for a dressy night out. The key here is ensuring the jacket and pants perfectly fit as an ill-fitting suit takes away from the sleek appearance you’re going for. For a modern look opt for tapered pants cropped at the ankles and a blazer with a nipped in waist. You could also wear the sleeves pushed up to give the look a little bit more of an edge.
A silk cami is a sexy option to wear under a suit jacket however you can also extend its wear to a skirt or shorts during summer. Watson’s opted for a pinstripe however a classic neutral such as cream or white would also work just as well.
A simple necklace a la Watson’s is a classic addition to any accessories wardrobe. However if you want to be able to wear the same necklace with multiple looks opt for one with a smaller pendant to ensure it always complements an outfit and doesn’t overwhelm.
