Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is very pro-skipping school these days.
In the new video for The xx's "I Dare You," she plays a teen who strong-arms her sister and her sister's boyfriend into taking her with them when they cut class. They pick up some friends and drive to a local haunted house, where The xx just happens to be playing (maybe they're ghosts?).
Not actually sure what Millie Bobby Brown has to be sad about, when she's wearing this sweater-shirt-skirt combo.
Since the video is also actually an ad for Raf Simons's debut Calvin Klein collection, the teens all sway to The xx's hazy melodies while wearing dark denim, black turtlenecks, '70s-inspired button-ups with contrasting breast pockets, and one very classic Calvin Klein sports bra. But it's Brown's look that I want to buy in bulk and wear every day until I die.
You'll look like someone who's just fine with missing the school bus, someone who is ready to face the adventure and heartbreak of youth.
Brown ditches her school uniform for a loose-fitting, camel-colored sweater over a black shirt with a black miniskirt and white sneakers. It's a simple ensemble, but it's also particular, stylish in its awkward layering of a crewneck over a mockneck.
If you only had a taste for fast-fashion tops in trendy cuts (or cut-outs) and prints, you might call it boring—but the word you're actually looking for is sophisticated. Four pieces (just four!) and you'll look like someone who's just fine with missing the school bus, who can hold her own when nestled between her older sister's friends in the backseat, someone who is ready to face the adventure and heartbreak of youth.
Brown gives off wise and powerful vibes well beyond her 13 years in this look.How to Wear It
On a warm day, take the sweater off and tie it around your waist; in the shade, tie it over your shoulders. When fall arrives, put the sweater back on and find a similar hue reflected in the turning leaves. White sneakers keep the whole thing looking crisp year-round. The Raf Simons fall/winter 2017 campaign won't hit stores for another couple of months, but that shouldn't stop you from getting a head start.
