I have to thank Pretty Little Liars for thrusting Ashley Benson into the spotlight. Her character Hanna Marin may ooze with rich-girl style in her designer clothes, but in real-life Benson is edgy and laid-back in her style.
You’ll typically see her in beanies and be sporting a graphic-tee. This type of laid-back, skater style is one of my favorites–which is why I had to steal it from her.
I dare you to find one aspect of this outfit you like more than the rest because I couldn’t. The cheetah boots add a pop of personality that is sure to catch the eye, and the furry black sweater is both unbelievably comfortable and extremely chic.
The skinny jeans are a good transition from the oversized sweater to the chunky boot. Benson has a thing for tote bags, and I have no doubt you have at least one to complete this outfit.
This wouldn’t be an Ashley Benson style steal if I didn’t include a graphic tee and beanie. This look can be recreated in so many ways to allow for your personality to come through.
If you start off with the t-shirt or beanie in black or white you can easily pair it with something more colorful as an accent. I don’t know what shoes she was wearing for this but to keep with the theme, I chose to complete the look with a pair of black vans.
Flannels for Days
Raise your hand if you plan to wear this outfit repeatedly throughout winter. 🙋 This is one of those outfits that takes five minutes to put together, but it looks like you put loads of effort into your morning routine.
All you need is a plain t-shirt, preferably loose-fitted, ripped black jeans, an oversized flannel and black boots. Top it all off with a long necklace, and you’re ready to conquer the day.
While it may not seem like the laid-back style takes a lot of effort, it is an art in itself, and we have to give Ashley Benson credit for rocking it. I’ll definitely be turning to these outfits a lot over the next few months!
