TV Fashion: Lana Lang of 'Smallville'
That is, unless you're the very stylish Lana Lang, played by
And when you start with the sultry looks of Lana, even black T-shirts look cool. For example, a black long-sleeve V-neck T-shirt like the one worn in the first episode of last season, made by Splendid and available at shopbop.com. Clingy, tight and semisheer, it features 3/4-inch banding at the neck and is made of 50 percent cotton and 50 percent modal. Modal is a bio-based fiber made by spinning reconstituted cellulose from beech trees and is 50 percent more water absorbent than cotton. It also does not pill and is resistant to shrinkage and fading.
Another Lana favorite is a BCBG ruffle charmeuse polo in black. Ruffled smocking details a silk charmeuse polo shirt with an open neckline and button-cuffed sleeves. The shirt also features a hidden side zipper, elastic empire waist and a paneled hem. Available at Nordstrom, the $138 shirt works beautifully over skinny jeans.Speaking of which, Lana tends to wear skinny jeans like Lex wears bald. The siren slides into phenomenal 16-inch straight leg dark vintage jeans by J Brand. The 16-inch refers to the opening at the straight leg. These jeans are beyond hot and feature five-pocket styling, single-button closure and contrasting bronze stitching throughout. Available for $158 at www.couturecandy.com, they can then be paired with black patent leather Liliana's from Nine West. These 4-inch heeled peep-toe dazzlers will make a man weaker than kryptonite in his cornflakes.
For a more ethereal look, Ms. Lang has been spotted in the long poet superfine cardigan by Free People (available through
