Fashion lessons to learn from the Stranger Things actress

Maya Hawke might be relatively new on the Hollywood scene, but she's already dressing for the red carpet like a seasoned pro. Whether it's a simple suit or a show-stopping dress for an awards ceremony, the Stranger Things actress – who is the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke – has her elegant style well and truly defined. Here's what we can learn from her looks...

1. Embrace your inner princess

While a full-skirted princess gown might not be appropriate for all occasions, when the event calls for it Hawke isn't afraid to go all out in a fairytale frock.

2. Add contrast

Adding a mesh under layer to this floral Dior dress makes it look younger and less formal, while her layered eyeshadow adds edge.

3. Don't shy away from prints

A bold print can elevate a classic silhouette, making it look younger and cooler.

4. A suit makes for an excellent daywear

The actress reminds us that wearing a suit doesn't always have to be formal. Opt for a slouchier shape by day and team with a printed T-shirt.
