Stephanie Pratt's Grungy Mallrats Look (Kurt Cobain Would Be Proud)

Stephanie Pratt might not have a track record for making great decisions (she is a Pratt afterall) – but this stoner, just-rolled-out-of-bed look is pretty rough. Wearing menswear inspired trends, like the military jacket is great and we’d normally approve, but she loses us by pairing it with a shredded sweater, ripped jeans, and Chucks. Let’s break it down:

What she did wrong:

Ripped clothing had its moment this year, but please, people don’t wear ripped jeans AND a ripped sweater.

Instead of going with the head to toe grunge look – why not pair a military coat with sleek flat boots? Don’t forget Jenna Lyon’s rule that opposites attract.

What she should have done:

The one menswear-inspired piece I would keep is the military jacket because it is so on-trend. This cropped Trouvé Canvas Military Jacket ($98) is a feminine style you can wear with skinny jeans or even flirty dresses.

A basic, fitted tee is the answer to every wardrobe dilemma. Pair this sexy but comfy Splendid 1×1 Scoop Tee ($46) with jeans, trousers, or under cropped jackets. It works with everything.

Instead of the shredded baggy jeans, Stephanie should have gone with a dark, skinny pair like these James Jeans Twiggy 5 Pocket Legging Jeans ($150). The dark wash is super slimming and goes with everything.

In lieu of the Chucks, Stephanie should have juxtaposed her borrowed-from-the-boys jacket with a sleek, feminine boot like these Corso Como Rhonda boots ($198). The camel color is neutral and subtle – yet still very chic.
