This outfit has everything you need for a busy day - a stylish silhouette, chic accessories, and comfort. Kirsten's cropped flared pants are simultaneously sophisticated and breezy, and are ideal for warm weather days when full trousers are just too hot. Her white tank top is a basic that everyone should have in their wardrobe. Nude heeled sandals make legs look longer, but this pair is still chunky enough to be comfortable for walking around. A crossbody bag and sleek sunglasses finish off the look.
This stylish look can easily take you from the boardroom to the bar for drinks. Kirsten's green midi skirt is cute and classic, and pairing it with a lace top adds a modern touch. The clean white blazer pulls everything together and makes it more work appropriate. The nude pumps are an essential that everyone should have in their wardrobe. Kirsten finishes off the outfit with a practical and stylish white handbag, as well as a pair of oversized shades for sunny weather.
Kirsten wore this flowy green maxi dress on vacation in Punta Cana, Mexico, and it would be perfect for any beachy vacation. Maxi dresses are perfect for tall girls like Kirsten, because they really accentuate your height. Although this one is very voluminous, the belt at the waist ensures it won't swallow. Nude heels are a great complement to let the dress speak for itself.
