Here’s the situation: The holidays are in full swing and you’ve snagged an invite to your friend’s legendary holiday cocktail party. But there’s a catch, and the catch is… it’s winter and it’s cold and all you really want to do is find a socially acceptable way to wear a blanket in public. But sadly, the last time we checked, a belted yard of fleece doesn’t exactly qualify as appropriate cocktail attire. But fret not, you cozy-loving ladies — there is hope for you yet. Enter: this outfit Zendaya just wore to the Star Wars premiere.
Zendaya showed up rocking a super snuggly turtleneck dress topped with a heavily bedazzled skirt. While the skirt, earrings and shoes all add a formal touch to the look, the turtleneck brings it back down to the perfect combination of high and low. We’re thinking J.Crew’s creative director and style icon Jenna Lyons would be a pretty major fan of this look. What’s even better is that although she’s rocking just the right amount of sparkle, all Zendaya’s feeling is the soft embrace of cashmere (we’re not entirely certain it’s cashmere, but we’re guessing Zendaya wouldn’t wear anything else).
