Leave it to Selena Gomez to pull off the best Risky Business outfit before it’s even October. The “Only Murders in the Building” actress shared a mirror selfie from her hotel room, showing off her legs in a pair of statuesque stiletto over-the-knee boots and a fitted white shirt dress.
Styled by Erin Walsh, the outfit is almost deceptively simple—just the shirt and boots, no pants—but made for excellent evening attire with the addition of some simple, everyday gold jewelry from Gomez’s favorite designers.
While the pantsless look isn’t for everyone, this outfit illustrates the importance of choosing the right proportions from head to toe. A loose-fitting button-down shirt paired with just socks and sunglasses is very Tom Cruise circa 1983, but amp up the volume on top, and cover up some leg with a stunning pair of boots, and suddenly, you’re so 2023.
Ahead, check out a few of our favorite white button-downs and some seriously chic over-the-knee boots that can be worn to recreate Gomez’s eye-catching outfit. And, if you want to repurpose the shirt for Halloween, it makes for a great last-minute costume, too.
