While Sophia Bush first came to our attention years ago as Brooke Davis in One Tree Hill, she has held our attention for other reasons: not only is she a tireless advocate for women but she does it in a super-stylish way, making her the perfect choice for our latest It Girl story. Yes, whether she is out on the streets of Hollywood or hitting up the red carpet for a movie premiere, Sophia definitely has a chic yet understated sense of personal style that we love. On that note, click through to discover the key elements to Sophia’s style and how you can make her look your own.
1. When dressing up, pick pieces with embellishments or stand-out features.
Whether you choose a sequined jacket or an embellished dress, this will ensure you stand out from the crowd. Both Rebecca Minkoff’s Becky Sequin Jacket ($798) and French Connection’s Embellished Shift Dress ($290) are perfect pieces to start with.
2. For off-duty days, pair flirty dresses with fun accessories.
Pick up an eye-catching necklace, menswear-style shoes, a cute fedora, or a brightly-colored bag, and then add it to your girly dress to create an instantly cool outfit. We like ASOS’s Pom Pom Lariat Necklace ($9) and Antik Batik’s Banta Clutch ($86).
3. Pick pieces that highlight the things you love about your body.
Sophia’s petite frame means that pieces like cropped jackets and mini dresses work double-duty to elongate and flatter her shape. If you’re similarly petite, check out pieces like Mango’s Chain-Trimmed Boucle Jacket ($40) and DV By Dolce Vita’s Owie Shift Dress ($132).
