“I spend most of my time and life at the studio. If I’m not on set, I’ll be writing.” Sabrina Carpenter says with a smile. “The funny thing about being in the studio is that I will take these shoes off. I will take this jacket off, and it will probably just be me in a T-shirt and jeans, so I can be comfortable and write some songs.” The 22-year old singer-actor is taking Vogue through a week in her wardrobe at the Freehand Hotel in New York City, which runs the gamut from oversized, thrifted vintage T-shirts, and worn-in denim (comfortable enough for studio visits). There is also statement-making outerwear, mini dresses for parties, and leather pants for date night—“I guess if I’m going on a date with you in leather pants, I’m already in love with you,” Carpenter quips.
Carpenter’s wardrobe features a range of different styles and she approaches getting dressed with a similar eclectic methodology—injecting equal parts playfulness and ease into each outfit. For Carpenter, it’s all about balancing a wardrobe basic with an eye-catching element. “A huge part of my everyday style is taking a cool statement piece jacket and throwing it over [a slip dress].” She’s loved turtlenecks since she was 15, lives “and sleeps and breathes” in band tees, and appreciated the power of laying. In her wardrobe, you’ll also find a sleek skirt set—elegant enough for events—that, according to Carpenter, can moonlight as an errands outfit. “Honestly, I’d wear this to Whole Foods,” she laughs. “I feel like I’d make a friend in this in the produce aisle.”
