Blake Lively has perfected the art of dressing in luxe, monochromatic looks. Remember her purple pantsuit and baby-blue skirt set? But with her latest red-carpet outfit choice—a longline denim jacket topping off a couture gown—the former Gossip Girl star also mastered high-low dressing, reminding us all that are no real style rules, even if you’re an A-lister attending a movie launch. 

Making a rare public appearance as a couple, Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds attended the New York City premiere of his upcoming movie, The Adam Project, which is slated to release on Netflix on March 11. The actress casually threw a longline jean jacket over a plunging rainbow Versace dress with a dramatic thigh-high slit. (Like Reynolds behind her, we can’t get over this outfit.)

Her sparkling low-cut dress is spring pastels done right, with billowing strips of fabric cascading to her heels. A pink tweed bag, crystal-embellished sandals, and statement earrings add texture and visual intrigue, complementing the overall cotton-candy color palette.

Her oversized denim jacket stole the show, though. Tying in the soft blues of her dress and shoes, Lively’s outerwear of choice signaled that she doesn’t take herself too seriously. The utilitarian piece also marks a departure from her previous red-carpet fashion, which usually prioritizes precise tailoring and tonal dressing. It seems the actress took as much inspiration from her off-duty style as she did her more glam looks.

Even if you can’t run out and buy a matching Versace gown, you can still take a beat from Blake Lively’s look—starting with a long denim jacket to casually drape over a flowy spring dress, or a white button-down and menswear-inspired trousers, or even a sweatsuit. Add any one of the options below to cart, and get ready to wear it on repeat through next season.
