We don’t often see this fashionista in the dressed down look, but here she is pulling out the stops in grunge for some errand running in Manhattan. And she just proves here that you don’t need to be dressed to the nines to look like you are. I love this look on Katie, it is a very contemporary spin off of her Dawson’s Creek days when she had that wholesome approach to style, and it is that lovable look that we all adored. So here she is making grunge look fabulous in some oversized shades, rugged canvas boots, leggings, and a red plaid top to show that less really can be more. All of this paired with a cute but sexy ponytail for a look that can so obviously work any day of the week. This just goes to show that yes, you can get away with second day hair without drawing too much attention to yourself, and you can style yourself very easily even when you are running errands uber cas.
To get this look, dampen your soft bristle brush as you pull this ponytail back, and let it sit nice and low on the back of your crown like Katie has here. If you have bangs, bend your bangs under ever so slightly with your flat iron or curling iron, or sweep them loosely into the ponytail like Katie. The cute part of the sexy look, comes with the outfit you pair it with. If you pull off the right look like Katie has here and choose simple pieces that are casual, but fitted to your size and complement your figure, you can get away with the ponytail. Doing just that will ensure that if you are getting looks from the errand running crowd, they are the kind of looks you want. This look will only take a few minutes, so go ahead and sleep in a little since you won’t have to worry about your hair. You can arrive on time and still look fabulous and nobody will ever be the wiser.
