For the uninitiated, the look that Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele has turned into the brand’s signature is a very layered, patterned and generally kinda maximalist ’70s inspired look. Think paisley, earth and jewel-tones, headscarves and retro sunnies.
It looks like a lot, and that’s the point! While most of us probably don’t have *exact* matches for Gucci pieces, the key is in the intensive layering. Pick things that have a loose Gucci ~vibe~ and watch it come together for a pretty identifiable final look.
In their TikTok video, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actor breaks down the Gucci outfit process. “First off you need a random turtleneck. Make it colourful,” Watson explains. “And then some random shirt that doesn’t match it, and then a random vest. Layering is important.” Very important.
“And then a bright green or bright coloured jacket. Some vinyl pants. Maybe put on a little mini skirt over top of that. I know, stylish. A headscarf. This is very crucial. This is a Gucci staple. I have my Gucci sunglasses on. Some clear heels with some socks, of course. Some bright pink lipstick. And just like that, I’m a model for Gucci.”
They’re right and they should say it! Peep the video below for immense ‘Harry Styles in a Gucci editorial’ energy.
