Priyanka Chopra might be making headlines for her rumored romance with her 2017 Met Gala escort, Nick Jonas, but earlier today in New York City, she caught attention for a different reason: her cool and cozy alternative to the little white dress. Chopra has been switching things up lately with her street style. In London ahead of the royal wedding, she donned Alberta Ferretti’s plaid suit, and in New York she ushered in May flowers in head-to-toe buds by Prabal Gurung. Today’s look may have been drained of all that color and pattern, but it was an equally festive summer statement.
Chopra’s fitted asymmetric top was the ideal base layer to shift the focus onto her elaborately draped and flounce-trimmed Jacquemus skirt. A ladylike Fendi whip-stitched bag continued the neutral-hued theme, while fuchsia Aquazzura heels lent a pop of color. And her rimless Oliver Peoples microshades—a refined take on the ubiquitous Matrix sunglasses—gave the entire outfit a crucial dose of edge.
