We read that Bella Thorne had gone and said the craziest thing: “I am way too young to be a style icon.” Sister! The former Disney Channel star isn’t even old enough to drink, but her style has taken some major steps forward recently, and it’s time we addressed it.
“I am still learning and experiencing,” she told The Daily Mail. “My personal style tends to be far more casual than my looks in front of the camera. I am a minimal-to-no-makeup, jeans, T-shirt, and Converse kind of girl.” I love a blue jean baby like everyone, but for the purpose of this style study, I want to call out some of her fantastic red carpet looks.
Wearing pants in lieu of a cocktail frock proves you’ve got real style chops, and Bella did it perfectly in this slim tux at the People’s Choice Awards.
Just a few years ago, Bella was all about super-bright prints. Totally cute but also a little bit on the juvenile side. It’s when she’s picked simpler styles like this that I see a chic adult peeking out.
Show me a girl in wide culottes and I’ll show you a style icon. Bella could easily walk every red carpet in a flirty LBD, but instead she’s taken to pushing the envelope with combos like this.
