Now that you have started composing your new spring wardrobe, it is time to think about the perfect in-between shoe – the shoe that will help you transition from snow-stomper to sandal-enthusiast. Here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we suggest you pick up a pair of biker boots – not only were they spotted on Balenciaga’s spring 2011 runway, but noteworthy tastemakers such as Kate Bosworth and Mila Kunis have been converting this runway idea into reality. So, read on for all the details and make sure you take notes as we’re sure you’ll find plenty of ideas in today’s Accessory Report.
Twilight actress Julia Jones is definitely “one to watch” when it comes to fashion – her personal style has an edge about it, which we love. Case in point: Julia was spotted in Vancouver last month wearing a khaki trench, a slouchy sweater, jeans, and biker boots. The look is low-key, definitely, but it is this precisely unfussy aesthetic that has Julia making waves on the red carpet. For a similar look, pair Hawke’s Belted Trench Coat ($96) with J Crew’s Isabel Sweatshirt ($228), your favorite jeans, and American Apparel’s Unisex Circle Scarf ($28). Then, simply add Madewell’s Buckled Biker Boots ($129.99).
Regular readers are aware that we love Kate Bosworth’s aesthetic – she has a flair for elevating simple outfits into style statements. Example? Kate was spotted out to dinner in Los Angeles last week wearing a printed sweater dress, Burberry’s Quilted Leather Biker Jacket ($3,595), and Burberry biker boots. We love the way this outfit is composed using elements that every girl should have in her closet. On that note, you can try it for yourself by layering Rag & Bone’s Greville Patchwork Dress ($247.50) under Sandro’s Virage Leather Biker Jacket ($820). To finish, add a pair of Jeffrey Campbell’s Brit Wrap Strap Boots ($230).
Kate Hudson is a free spirit when it comes to fashion – rather than pay attention to trends, Kate puts a personal twist on every outfit and always comes out on top. Earlier this year, Kate was spotted in Paris wearing tall biker boots, a shearling jacket, and a plaid shirt. We love the way her outfit has a rock & roll vibe that is in tune with Kate’s general way of life. To create a similarly stylish ensemble, layer Mackage’s Rory Leather Jacket ($650) over Rails’ Kendra Plaid Button Down Shirt ($98) and Imitation’s Mini Skirt ($115). Pour la Victoire’s Biker Boots ($132.50) finish the outfit.
We always look forward to what Mila Kunis wears on the red carpet, so it isn’t surprising to see that she has just as much flair for off-duty fashion. Last week, in Paris, Mila wore a utilitarian ensemble that had our hearts aflutter – a navy pea coat, skinny jeans, and, naturally, biker boots. We particularly love this outfit’s versatility – wear it shopping, to a cool fashion industry event, or on a long-haul flight. For a similar look, pair ASOS’s Military Button Coat ($62.76) with a pair of skinny jeans. Complete your outfit with Ray-Ban’s Original Aviator Sunglasses ($139) and Rag & Bone’s Motorcycle Boots ($550).
