After sporting a vacation wardrobe crammed with personalized twists on summer 2022 runway looks, Dua Lipa is back within the office—at least, consistent with the newest look she posted on Instagram. For dinner together with her stylist Lorenzo Posocco, the “Levitating” singer chose business casual, with a couple of elements of Dua Lipa’s signature style. She wore a Dion Lee pinstriped blazer and a leather-look bandeau with a halter neck.
Her black trousers, which bore a cutout at the fly, had thin straps at the highest that tied around her waist within the shape of an “x.” A black leather bag with a silver chain strap completed the outfit, and in fact, Dua didn’t go without plenty of jewelry. Chunky silver hoops, and a hoop on nearly every finger—including one among the Union Jack—complimented her beauty, which consisted of a smoky eye with dramatic winged liner and silvery shadow within the corners of her lids. (In her Instagram story, Dua Lipa said she’d done the makeup herself, adding that she’d “been playing around” with creating her own beauty looks.)
Since she wasn’t attending at this year’s Met Gala (she told her Instagram followers she wouldn’t make it to fashion’s biggest night thanks to shooting the movie Argyle, during which she was recently cast), we’re counting on Dua Lipa’s artful Instagram posts to carry us over for fashion inspiration—and she’s been delivering decidedly since traveling to Albania together with her mother, father, boyfriend Anwar, and brother and sister over the summer. Although she isn’t seen during a boxy jacket too often—Lipa has spent the past few months choosing printed, slinky dresses; bikinis, and wrap skirts—the pinstripe look is categorically Dua Lipa, to a T. She loves a cutout, can’t say no to hardware accents, and can always show a touch skin, albeit it’s engaged in straps.
There was one recent sighting, however, of Dua wearing a jacket and slacks—another instance during which the “We’re Good” singer made officewear her own. During her family vacation, she visited the Albanian Royal Residence wearing a salmon-colored suit with statement shoulders, bare chest peeking out from beneath her lapels.
