1. YOU DON’T HAVE TO WEAR HEELS ALL THE TIME

We are in the era of fashion where women are not demanded to wear high heels anymore. Sure, wearing stilettos and high-rise sandals is still a compulsory feat in the dress codes of certain events and occasions. But when you’re just outside, strolling in the streets? Take the cue from Cate Blanchett and you will know that you can still pull off either the androgynous look or the feminine casual outfit while still wearing flats.

2. SLIP DRESSES ARE NOT FOR THE BEDROOM ANYMORE

I’ve talked about how pajamas and the outré look as a whole have become incredibly trendy these recent seasons. And Cate Blanchett is here to prove that. Slip dresses are known for their seductive charm. These silk pajama dresses are not known to be worn outside of the house, much less your bedroom. But if you pair it with something tailored and structured like a blazer, it will definitely be wearable for the streets.

3. ALL BLACK IS ELEGANT. ALWAYS.

I don’t think I have t stress this out any more but I still will. An all black outfit is elegant. And for those of you with light blonde hair like Blanchett’s, the overwhelming presence of that solid dark color will emphasize and complement your hair.

4. SOMETIMES, ALL YOU NEED IS THE RIGHT BLAZER TO LOOK GREAT

You could be wearing something so simple and basic like a shirt and jeans but it will surely become eye-grabbing by adding just one piece of garment: a statement blazer. Follow Cate’s suit and either make that all-black look rise to a whole new level of fashionable with a printed blazer or make the slouchy getup a tad bit sleeker.
