On the eve of the mid-season premiere of "Pretty Little Liars," set to air today at 8 p.m., Lucy Hale and her co-stars stopped by Sirius XM Radios as part of their promotional tour for the show. I'll be perfectly honest: I'm not at all familiar with Hale's style outside of the series. But that said, the 26-year-old actress looked exceptionally cute with her multicolored Oscar de la Renta tweed coat and Alex Perry "Vonnie" dress — available here for $950. (We can dream right?)

For any woman who's 5'2'', I'd imagine a coat of that length — it reaches all the way down to her ankles with heels — would be a hard silhouette to balance. But with the help of the styling team at Rachel Zoe, the petite actress navigated the style with aplomb by pairing it with a minidress. Simply put, it was the perfect complement to a coat that could've otherwise been overwhelming, both in length and color. The actress tied the whole look together with very simple black heels and a ladylike bag.
