On-air, the svelte TV host maintains a dressy look. Kelly’s own time is another fashion story, however. She’s relaxed, sporty, supercreative, and an absolute maverick when it comes to styling a simple white or gray top. Follow her script to make your classic tee or buttondown fancy or fun—and always body-friendly.
PLAY WITH THE FORMULA Top: Try a full skirt. Tuck in the tank like Kelly does to reveal your waistline. Near left:Make sporty look cute. Brightly colored shorts punch up the white tee (whereas khaki or jean shorts wouldn’t have all that much impact). Center left: Roll up your jeans and incorporate eyecatching accessories (a woven belt, a single-strand necklace, awesome shoes) to juice up the day look.
