From talk-show hosts to socialites and from Creative Directors to bloggers, Wear Your Invisible Crown prides itself on revealing the kaleidoscopic gamut of fashion ingénues and icons. Since the month of December definitely calls for chic versatility (work, weekend, Chanukah soirees, and winter weddings), is there a better moment to feature the multi-faceted style of Kate Bosworth? Nope, there isn’t.
Although Kate Bosworth is well-known for being an actress (and for her different colored eyes!) she is even more well-known for her trend-setting credentials. In fact, I barely ever watched a film that Kate Bosworth was in, but I have seen scores of her stylish snapshots in Vogue. The fashion universe constantly focuses their lens on Ms. Bosworth, because more often than not, she’ll be perfectly executing a bohemian, sporty, sleek, or luxurious look. This girl is definitely a fashion chameleon in her own right.
Check out her modest ensembles below!
Weekend: A Boho Girl with City Edge
Kate Bosworth’s weekend style is a curious hodgepodge of free-spirited bohemia and edgy downtown. This contrast creates a totally unique spin on standard weekend wear. How can one steal Bosworth’s relaxed yet undeniably cool look? Easy peasy. Step 1: Embrace your inner gypsy by opting for loose, flowing skirts or sweaters. Step 2: Celebrate your “city girl complex” and mix in gritty, urban pieces. Heeled booties, motorcycle jackets, fur, and a structured purse will balance out your outfit’s “boho breeziness.”
At times, Bosworth will replace her heeled booties with wedge sneakers! She’ll ditch downtown for sporty glamour and rock it like nobody’s business. Sure, her sneakers are high-end Isabel Marants, but don’t let that deter you. You can still pair your Nikes with a knee-length skirt. It's a fully on-trend, creative, and comfortable (!) way to dress.
Work: Sleekly Sophisticated
It’s kind of admirable how Bosworth can go from an eclectic boho to an immaculately polished dame within a matter of minutes. She quickly sheds her various “style personalities” in favor of appearing sleek and elegant. Here’s how to modernize a classic pencil skirt + blouse pairing a la Kate Bosworth:
Step 1: There’s a difference between a skirt that’s too tight and a skirt that’s fitted--ensure that yours is the latter. Step 2: Leather! Leather! Leather! Wear a leather skirt with a feminine blouse OR heck, wear your leather skirt with a leather shirt!
We already shook up our humdrum casual style with some Bosworth-ian tips, but how do we accomplish the same for work wear? Once again, it’s easy peasy. Wear classics like a button down BUT update it with accessories. Don’t you love how Bosworth channels secretary-chic with a neon-yellow belt over beige? Or how she layers strands of rocker-jewels with a solid blouse and blazer? That, our dear readers, is a corporate fashionista not to be messed with.
Party: Feminine Frocks
What does this style master have to say about black-tie glamour? Keep it feminine. Whether it’s ruffles, chiffon, bows, or sequins (or sequins AND a bow--see the red Antonio Beradi dress below), Bosworth appears to be a refined femme in these dresses. They are streamlined and fitted and therefore deliver impeccable elegance.
Whether she’s dolled for an event or strolling LA streets and trying to avoid paparazzi, Kate Bosworth’s personal style is a gallery of youthful eclecticism. Urban, bohemian, rocker, professional, or dainty—she’s got it all. Oh, wait--we forgot one essential ingredient to her admired style: Confidence. Yup—you can’t fully enjoy fashion if you don’t have confidence, honey.
UNTIL THE NEXT ST-EYE-LISTA!
