Actress Orla Brady is doing her best 'Charlotte Gainsbourg on down-time' impression here, and it is seriously working for her.

There's a nice juxtaposition of androgynous yet provocative going on with this outfit. We love the quite masculine T and tattered jeans, which act as a perfect foil to the edgy accessories. The peep-toe ankle-boots undercut the tomboy vibe nicely, lending the look a sexy bite, while the undone hair suggests Orla is not a woman to overthink an outfit. It's Parisian cool to a T.


Dear Stylemma,

I want to incorporate the culottes that I've been seeing everywhere into my work clothes for summer. Can you suggest the best way to tackle this one? I am older and don't want to look clownish. I am a size 12, five feet six inches tall, and work in the arts.

Culottes are a really wearable look for work. Treat them the same as you would any A-line midi skirt. Work the culottes with pointed courts to keep the look uber grown-up. Whistles are doing really chic, tailored culottes in black, €125; they would be perfect with a crisp white shirt or a boxy cropped top.
