The latest street style look sported by Megan Fox further validates the midriff-baring cardigan’s status as one of the season’s most essential must-haves.
On Sunday, the actress was seen leaving her home in Los Angeles while dressed in a blazing, all-red ensemble that featured golden embellishments at various points. Maeve Reilly was responsible for styling this look, which consisted of a Jacquemus statement cardigan in a lone, ribbed-knit, which was encompassed by a single “Jacquemus”-scripted gold button, as well as a matching Jacquemus red midi pencil skirt, which was also designed by the designer. Fox complemented her look with a red tiny Mietis top-handle purse that matched her sandals by FEMME LA that had a gold ankle strap. She kept the look sophisticated and dressy by wearing her long hair in the loose body waves that have become her signature.
Fox debuted yet another style that featured a statement cardigan in the month of April. This time, she went for a preppy, slightly dressed-down look by donning a Versace abstract striped sweater over a white oversized button-down. She finished off that ensemble with a second top-handle purse, this time in a matching shade of green, as well as a pair of black-scaled Louboutin platform booties.
The insightful, one-button sweater trend has made its rounds among other trendsetting celebs, including Emily Ratajkowski. Emily Ratajkowski, who, back in March, took to the streets in a revealing black Aya Muse cardigan that similarly bared her toned midriff, did so while she had just recently given birth to son Sylvester Apollo Bear, no less. The trend has made its rounds among other trend-setting movie stars. In order to give her own spin on the craze, Hailey Bieber went to the L.A. streets in October of last year while wearing a nude cashmere Jacquemus cardigan with the buttons undone and a nude bralette from the same brand.
Fox has not the slightest intention of apologizing for showcasing her endowments or for embracing the trend of empowerment dressing. In an interview with Who What Wear from the previous month, she discussed the challenges she faced early on in her career as a result of being typecast based on her appearance. “People were attempting to hide me and make me less sexy so that I could be taken more seriously,” she recounted. “People were trying to make me less sexy so that I could be taken more seriously.” “My response was something along the lines of, “I don’t give a fuck about it.” I just want the overall appearance to be good.”
