There is rarely—or perhaps never—a moment when Blake Lively does not impress us with her impeccable style. When it comes to fashion, the prolific actress just about has it all figured out. Her role in the hit TV show Gossip Girl was true, at least, in that respect: she knows how to throw together a good, high-fashion look. 

Which, of course, is why we’ve had our eyes on her during New York Fashion Week. We wanted to see exactly what she would wear to take to the streets of the city for the occasion. During fall fashion week, her looks were certified winners, and this time around has been no different.

On Feb. 13, the actress headed to the Michael Kors Collection fall/winter 2024 runway show in a look designed to turn heads. Lively started with an all-brown base: a brown scoop-neck top and a pair of sheer brown tights. To that, she added a giraffe print  mini skirt and a matching oversized jacket. She finished off the eye-catching number with a pair of brown patent leather boots to match.

Lively’s outfit was, among other things, an expert tutorial in styling animal—and, particularly giraffe—print, and we’re busy taking notes. While not exactly monochrome, the look was brown-heavy, but not overwhelmingly so. It was, on the whole, an expert take on runway crowd fashion, and we’re totally enamored.

New York Fashion Week came to an end yesterday, Feb. 14, and with it, much of the street style that occupied our social media timelines. Thankfully, Lively’s was good enough to keep us inspired for a while to come.
