Whitney Port at the 2010 Big Bang event at Esprit in New York on November 13.
Tweed blazers and ruffle-chest blouses are often associated with little old ladies, but these items looked super-fresh (and not at all grandma-ish) on The City’s Whitney Port, who hosted the Esprit Big Bang event on Saturday in New York. Why it works? Instead of pairing her Esprit look — the tweed jacket ($199.50) and frilly top ($69.50) — with a tweed skirt, which is what our cute grannies might do, Whitney rocked them with Esprit’s sleek black leggings ($59.50) and ankle-baring, round-toe shoes by Loeffler Randall for a fashion-forward look we’re falling for.
