Blake Lively's Newlywed Style: From Sexy to Sedate

There’s no doubt that Blake Lively is stunning, and since her wedding day, we’ve noticed a distinctive glow about the star. But we’ve also noticed something else: she’s been dressing in a decidedly more mature way since tying the knot.

Once so known for baring her majorly enviable bod at every chance she got (in teeny outfits like this aqua romper, left) that the girls gave her a nickname about it, the star’s most recent looks have been much more buttoned-up than bodacious.

Lately, we’ve seen Lively wearing outfits befitting her new role as the wife on a country estate, including checked jackets, bucket hats, a very equestrian look and, most recently, this belted plaid day dress.

She’s still a total knockout, but we can’t help wondering if settling down in suburbia with her 36-year-old husband has aged the starlet’s style a bit.

Tell us: Do you like Lively’s more mature look?

The difference between being a teenager and mid-twenties. Summer and Fall. California and NY. It has nothing to do with her husband. You just want to fan the flames of gossip and get attention for yourself and that mean girl blog.

Its called MATURING. Its discusting when a 40/50 something wears what a 18 yr old would. They think they are trendy and cute when it really just makes them look easy and desperate.

Oli on

It is still winter out…

I appreciate her wanting to change her style. However, that dress is not becoming on her and makes her look rather matronly.

Rita on

I don’t think she is changing her style: she changed dress. She wears what she fancies at the moment and which might be entirely different from what she will fancy tomorrow, like any other woman of her age.

Missy on

She is a wife now, doesn’t mean she doesn’t look fantastic. She is classy and stunning,,,, go find something important to discuss.

Chris on

From Serena Van der woodsen to Stepford Wife. Maybe somewhere in the middle would be perfect :)

Guest on

She is just so damn pretty, and she seems really sweet. And she looks great in ANYTHING. She’s literally a genetic jackpot

The look posted here is classic. Very country club chic. I like it. She will be much happier as she ages to look back on pictures of herself in classy attire. It’s okay to save the sexy look for her husband.

She is a face of Gucci, in a Gucci dress at a Gucci promotion event….do you really think she had much of a say in the outfit?
