Kristen Stewart Clearly Has a Thing for Sexy Crop Tops and White Socks
Kristen Stewart's style has definitely evolved since the early '00s, when her role as Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga solidified her as a superstar. But even though the actress no longer walks the red carpet in striped, strapless mini dresses and T-strap heels — the exact look she wore to Twilight's 2008 Paris premiere — there are certain items that have remained in her rotation and will likely never leave her closet.
From her teen years to early 30s — or, rather, her YA blockbuster phase to playing Princess Diana — Stewart has been fairly consistent with the items she likes. She continues to rock white T-shirts both on and off the red carpet, and often chooses to wear comfortable pairs of loafers over sky-high stilettos. One of her more recent headline-making tricks — adding statement socks to every outfit — isn't even that new; Stewart has been pulling the same move for the better part of the last decade.
Perhaps one reason for all of this is that Stewart has been working with the same stylist, Tara Swennen, for actual decades.
"After 17 years, I know her likes and her dislikes," Swennen recently told InStyle over the phone, but adds that she does enjoy pushing the actress to try something new. "One of the greatest things about her is that she is very willing to be a chameleon." Even still, Stewart has developed a unique personal style as she's gotten older, and according to Swennen, the duo essentially have things down to a science. "After a couple decades working together, I know what's going to work and what's not going to work."
At this point, we're ready to follow Stewart's fashion lead and take all the tips we can get. Check out all the trends and tricks she's been wearing for years, ahead.
