While RentTheRunway offers luxury designer threads for hire, Merritt displayed her talent for creating a haute look with pocketbook-friendly designs. Her blousy black top is from Forever 21, the winter white fringed skirt from NTICE, her booties from Zara. The black clutch by Urban Expressions was a find at A Bientot. The one splurge were her tights from Wolford.
"I'm always trying to find a way to wear white in winter because I think it is such a classic color that can be both sophisticated and modern at the same time," she said.
On the accessories front, Merritt wore Kendra Scott earrings, spiked bangles from ASOS and an Yves Saint Laurent ring. "I'm a sucker for gold jewelry, so I just piled on some goodies and let them speak for themselves."
