Try This Trend: Cara Delevingne’s Shabby Chic
English model Cara Delevingne is this generation’s Kate Moss: She’s an edgy, dirty girl with insane cheekbones and gorgeous features who isn’t afraid to look messy in public.
With her well-groomed yet thick eyebrows, tangled mane of blonde hair, a smoldering stare and a clutch of famous pals (Rihanna calls her a “wife” and she bros down with Rita Ora), Delevingne is a media magnet with a shabby chic style that’s easy to copy since you don’t need to do much more than hop out of bed and grab already-worn clothes off the floor.
Below you’ll see Delevingne donned a too big(gie) old school rap tee with light wash skinnies and white high-top sneakers (which are Chanel, we might add). She was born in 1992, but she channeled the ’80s. One trip to Forever 21 is all you need to replicate this look.
Here, she donned a graphic shark tee — which makes us want to watch ‘Sharknado’ all over again — and print leggings, along with her ever-present kicks. Shabby chic indeed.
Delevingne’s signature sneakers were studded and her hallmark jeans were colored in this shot. Add a graphic tee, another of her familiar style habits, and it’s a “vintage” Cara Delevingne outfit.
For a night out, the model went with messy layers in the form of a slubby tee, short shorts, schoolgirl knee-highs and a leather jacket. Nothing fit perfectly or looked flawless, and that’s part of her fashion charm.
Plus, she has a glam squad attending to every feature when she’s prepping for a shoot or a show, so it’s likely a relief to just THROW something on.
Delevingne kept it urban chic here with some bling, heels and smoky eye makeup. But for the most part, her “I just rolled out of bed” look is intact. Seriously, ladies, all you need to do to try this trend is throw on some clothes without much thought. Delevingne isn’t overthinking it; neither should you.
