A universally* accepted truth about summer is that it is impossible to get dressed and still look cute. There's something mind-blowingly tricky about shorts; layering isn't an option, and that's not even tackling what to do with your hair or your makeup.
Obviously this is not a problem for superhuman Diane Kruger. Have you ever seen Diane Kruger look bad? The answer is no, you have not. She was running around New York City on Friday looking better than anyone has the right to look in high combinations of heat and humidity. The outfit seems so simple at first glance — a striped tee and ripped mom jeans — but her accessories take the whole thing to the next level. A skinny belt and pointed-toe, leopard-print flats polish up the denim, while sleek cat-eye sunnies and a structured bag keep things sophisticated up top. It's like every outfit I have ever tried to pull off during the summer, except it's actually cute. That's why Kruger is a style icon, folks.
