It appears that post–Met Gala, Sydney Sweeney isn’t suffering from fashion fatigue. The Emmy-nominated Euphoria star is back to her street-style ways (and back to her regular blonde ’do), as evidenced by her latest sighting in New York City.

For an outing in Gramercy, Sweeney was seen wearing a layered look from Rokh—an unexpectedly deconstructed and utilitarian fit for the actor, who usually opts for bombshell dresses, sporty prep or subtle grunge. As is common with many Rokh designs, the dynamic dress was a work of juxtaposition that united frills with more proletarian features.

On top, the strapless dress included a layer of canvaslike material in a stark taupe. At first glance, you might think the garment had been turned inside out, because the upper hemline folded outward and visible threads were hanging from the seams. However, this was just a clever design choice, as there were two pockets and a row of buttons along the front that signaled it was being worn the right way.

Along the waistline, the taupe material split down the center to reveal a flowy white skirt underneath, which featured subtle stripes cutting horizontally across it and a scalloped edge along the bottom, adding some organic shape to the otherwise geometric silhouette.

While the visible threads up top already winked to the color of the skirt, Sweeney’s stylist, Molly Dickson, rounded out the fit by adding a white shoulder bag and a pair of pointy peep-toe pumps, also in a pearly white, giving the construction-core look a flirty spin. Finally, Sweeney accessorized with some dainty drop earrings and a pair of wire-frame cat-eye sunglasses.

It has been a style-stuffed week for Sweeney, who just walked the carpet at the Met Gala on Monday evening. For that event, the Immaculate actor wore a custom powder-blue Miu Miu gown that made her look like a princess, thanks to thick layers of tulle. In a wink to the “Garden of Time” dress code, the material was covered in threads made to look like branches, while also featuring flower-shaped appliqués.

To complete the look, Sweeney wore shiny De Beers jewelry and a pair of black leather opera gloves, which matched the jet-black bob (a wig) the California native debuted that night.

After the Met Gala was over, Sweeney was spotted out and about in a chocolate-brown suede set, also from Miu Miu. MShe was also still rocking her black ’do. The co-ord included a suede bandanna-style top and matching pencil skirt with a huge black belt across it. Sweeney completed the look with a pair of inky pumps that had diamonds decorating the heels. The black bob may be gone, but for Sweeney’s style streak, there’s no end in sight.
