Outfit Inspiration: Kaley Cuoco’s Menswear-Inspired Look

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco

Kaley Cuoco is known for her role on the Big Bang Theory, but on the red carpet, she’s known for bucking the expected and wearing cool clothes. Add to that her new short haircut and you’ve got a combination of red carpet rebel and fashion darling. At an event for the ASPCA, Cuoco flexed her sartorial muscle in a very unexpected menswear-inspired look that was the perfect balance of tomboy cool and sexy silver screen star.

Cuoco’s combination of menswear details and feminine touches made for an undeniably chic and cool outfit that plenty of girls can pull off. The pants, which are completely in line with the season’s more relaxed tailoring (see: Stella McCartney, Victoria Beckham and Lanvin’s collections), are great for girls of any shape and size. The high rise and the wide leg make them easy to wear with anything, but Cuoco’s anything-but-basic white sleeveless blouse is the perfect choice to temper the wide pants. Tied in the front, the blouse showed the perfect amount of skin and the outfit was completed with pointy pumps and clean. modern and bold gold jewelry. We’re obsessed to say the least, and you can get the look with our great picks.

Let’s face it: pants aren’t the most exciting thing you can add to your wardrobe. But find a pair that works and the feeling is similar to that angels singing through parting clouds, cherubic children’s choirs and the like. Well, if you’re all about the one-and-done pant, try the Theory Brinton Betoken Pants ($335). Dressed up, dressed down, dressed however you want, these pants have a flattering high rise, a not-too-trendy wide-but-not-too-wide shape and just the right amount of stretch.

And when you’ve found the perfect pair, here’s one tip: get two. Hem one so that you can wear them with boots and one that you can wear with flats, because when you find the one, you’ll need a backup pair.

Available at Bloomingdale’s.

1. For a blouse that ties without bunching or added bulk, go for silk instead of cotton. Try the Equipment Signature Silk Shirt ($188), which is a staple you’ll wear no matter the season.

2. If you’re looking for a classic, wear-everywhere black pump, one of our new favorites is the SJP Fawn 100 Pump ($350).

3. Cuoco’s modern, sleek accessories all work together thanks to their bold gold hue. Try the Robert Lee Morris Soho Open and Solid Cuff ($35), a light and easy-to-wear bangle that looks great alone or stacked with your favorite pieces.

4. Combined with the statement-making and spotlight stealing Natasha Couture Metallic Mirror Box Clutch ($58), the gold accessories add a dose of glam to an otherwise straightforward look.

5. Give your statement necklaces a break and try a clean and cool choker. The Michael Kors Collar Necklace ($145) worn over a blouse is a subtle and chic addition.
