Blake Lively met Taylor Swift for pizza in Brooklyn, irrefutably proving that stars really are just like us. On Wednesday evening, the friends linked up to attend a private party at the buzzy pizza restaurant Lucali. But the two dressed very differently for the occasion.

Lively showed up in a brown suede circle skirt with a thigh-baring slit and a pair of orange platform pumps with metallic gold statement heels. The actor matched her shoes to a blousy orange, yellow, and black striped sweater that was cleverly French-tucked to showcase her skirt’s built-in belt. She accessorized the dinner-date look with a chunky gold chain necklace and bracelet, a few cocktail rings, and a Louis Vuitton Capucines BB Ecru Jaune handbag. Blake Lively’s miniskirt was a weather-defying pick to be sure, given the windy 40-degree weather in New York City lately.

Swift, on the other hand, opted for a Reputation-coded ensemble comprising a green crushed-velvet dress and thigh-high boots from Jimmy Choo’s collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier, which are wrapped with “tattoos” of snakes.

Blake Lively recently credited her mom, Elaine Lively, as the inspiration for her maximalist personal style. “I would like to replace the term ’hoarder’ in favor of ‘maximalist.’ It makes me feel better. Wonder where I get it from…,” the actor captioned an Instagram selfie in which both she and Elaine were pictured wearing heaps of Tiffany diamond necklaces and bracelets.

Whether you decide to go all-out with your styling or prefer to keep things minimal, Blake Lively’s miniskirt is one to take inspiration from if you’ve been wanting to add a fun new staple to your closet. Style with a breezy shirt come summer, and follow in the star‘s footsteps by styling your skirt with a cozy jumper while the nip in the air continues.
