Betch Dressed Of The Week: Nicola Coughlan In Every New Yorker’s Summer Uniform

Want to know how to dress like a celebrity but don’t have the funds, the stylist, or anywhere particularly glamorous to go? Betch Dressed is your weekly breakdown of the best dressed celebs of 2024. Here you’ll find looks you can *actually* recreate IRL and styles that won’t cost you, like, an entire paycheck. So, I guess you kinda do have a stylist now…you’re welcome. 

In my opinion, Nicola Coughlan, star of Bridgerton, Derry Girls, and the most recent episode of Betches’ Mention It All Podcast, does not get enough credit for her amazing style. She always perfectly combines playful and chic elements for looks that feel elevated but not over the top, and her latest outfit is no exception. For the New Yorkers who wear all black even when it’s 80 degrees out, this one’s for you.

Your New Go-To Skirt

I love that Nicola’s skirt is simple enough to be paired with anything from a graphic tee to a statement top but interesting enough to turn those pieces up a notch. Look for a midi skirt with a bit of weight and interesting asymmetrical details. Bonus points for pleats!

A Grown Up “Going Out Top”

We both know it’s time to retire the basic black Aritzia crop top you’ve been wearing on every night out since college anyway. To recreate Nicola’s look (and generally upgrade your wardrobe), look for a black crop top with some interesting details like cut outs, ties, or twists.

If You Don’t Have These Shoes In Your Closet Already…

Even if you’re not a heels girl, a black pointy toe shoe is a closet essential regardless of height. It makes literally any outfit feel instantly polished.

Give Your Everyday Gold Hoops A Break

I love that Nicola balances the modern sleek details of her look with an oversized, organic earring. Those are the playful details I was talking about! Pick a pair that are big enough to make a statement, and bonus points if they feature pearls like Nicola’s.
