Style File: “Grown-ish” Star Yara Shahidi in Adeam and Max Mara

Posted on January 16, 2020

Yesterday’s strut was just a prelude, it seems. Miss Yara’s out here on these streets doing the promo work and werqing the promo looks. It seems to us, based on these looks and yesterday’s eye-catching Ivyland ensemble, that she’s on a real freshness kick, making a clear attempt to play around with shapes, textiles and color stories. No classic looks in this gal’s lineup.

There’s an awful lot going on here. That coat is kind of amazing but we’re not convinced the ensemble she chose is the best one for it, with its work uniform (WAAAAY too much of a fast-food apron thing happening) undertones going up against the coat’s more luxe feel. Taken another way, given the striped fabric and quilted white outerwear, it’s hard not to see a mattress situation going on here. We credit her for making a bold choice, but the textiles ruin the design.

You had us until you opened the coat, dear. Fabulously pretty outerwear and lightly kickass boots will always rule any January sidewalk, but we’re afraid we can’t sign off on the shorts – or the entire matchy vibe. That’s a shade of blue that practically demands a contrast or complement color.
