Highsnobiety’s Fitmas Calendar is a recap of 2019’s best celebrity style. Throughout the month of December, we’ll be looking back at one fit each day, diving deeper into why it worked and how you can achieve the look.
Who: Kristen Stewart
The outfit she’s wearing: Polyester herringbone suit jacket and pants with a leather bra top from Acne Studios’ Fall/Winter 2019 collection.
Where and when: New York City, November
Editor’s notes: Acne is an acronym for “Ambition to Create Novel Expressions,” and Kristen Stewart in the heavily cropped, square-detailed suit from the Swedish brand’s FW19 collection embodies this objective perfectly.
Stewart’s square herringbone bra, cropped blazer, and high-waisted cinched pants ensemble is one of our favorite iterations of a women’s suit we’ve seen in some time (although Jaden Smith pulls off a Louis Vuitton look with panache, too). The outfit – and slightly haphazard styling – speaks to a wider evolution of suiting and formalwear that has been gripping the fashion industry in the wake of post-luxury streetwear.
Stewart’s evolving personal style encompasses a mix of masculine and feminine elements. It’s reflective of a shift in womenswear that can also be seen in the success of Rihanna’s FENTY label, which is reimagining the idea of the “power suit” with bright colors and oversized silhouettes. Stewart’s 2019 style choices such as leather jackets worn over gowns, cropped jackets with unassuming baseball caps, and deconstructed suits, as pictured above, have cemented her status as a true modern-day style icon.
