As fashion fans, you know that there are days when you want to dress up, days when you want to dress down, and days when you want something that walks the line between cool and casual. Luckily, if the latter predicament sounds familiar, you are about to score. Today’s Steal Her Style story has three amazing outfits that are definitely as fashion-forward as they are unfussy and they come from three masters in the art of balanced dressing—Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Bosworth. So what are you waiting for? Click through for all the inspiration you can handle!
Earlier this month, Kate Moss was spotted wearing a piped army jacket, a printed scarf, charcoal skinny jeans, and leather ankle boots while out and about in London. As always, Kate managed to look effortlessly cool and nonchalant, but the truth is that this ensemble actually is as easy to put together as it looks. There are just two things to keep in mind when trying a look like this. Firstly, make sure you stick to a relatively simple color palette—avoid bright colors and pastels. Secondly, pick one statement item—in Kate’s case, it is her piped jacket—and revolve your outfit around that item. On that note, let’s steal Kate’s super-chic style! Start by picking up Soia & Kyo’s Avery Hooded Funnel Jacket ($154) or Zara’s Military Jacket ($90) and layering it over a long-sleeve top. Then, slip into Black Orchid’s Skinny Jeans ($132) and Nine West’s Flipforit Boots ($75) before finishing off your outfit with Mango’s Tribal Print Foulard Scarf in Black ($35).
Last week, Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted shopping in Los Angeles wearing a blue sequined Iro jacket, white skinny jeans, and Givenchy gladiator sandals. We love the way she has incorporated such a glamorous jacket into her daytime look—not only does it catch the eye, but it proves that you can wear sequins during the day. How does she do it? By pairing her sequined jacket with a simple and casual pair of jeans, Gwyneth has balanced the glam tone of the jacket. As for her sandals, they add an extra dose of low-key luxe for good measure. So, how can you steal Gwyneth’s glam daytime style? First, find a similarly shimmering jacket—we like Rory Beca’s Sequin Bead Jacket ($362) and Rachel Zoe’s Liza Sequined Blazer ($297). Then, pair it with a jersey top like James Perse’s Jersey T-Shirt ($50) and a pair of jeans like 7 For All Mankind’s Skinny Jeans ($159). To finish, slip into Dolce Vita’s Ida Sandals ($149) and head out.
A few weeks back, Kate Bosworth was spotted wearing a lightweight grey sweater, a sheer blue maxi skirt, and colorful Isabel Marant wedge sneakers while out and about in Beverly Hills. We love this interesting and surprising spring look—not only does it perfectly balance the boy-meets-girl look that is so big right now, but it has a really easy and breezy quality. The reason it works is simple, too. By picking a skirt with such feminine details—specifically, the pretty pastel hue, the sheer fabric, and the long leg slit—Kate was free to add a boyish piece like her sneakers. On that note, let’s steal Kate’s fun and free style! First, pick up a lightweight sweater like Club Monaco’s Marcelle Metallic Sweater ($99) and layer it over a sheer, feminine skirt—we like Mango’s Double-Split Skirt ($60) and Zara’s Long Splits Skirt ($80). Then, simply add a pair of wedge sneakers like Ash’s Bowie Suede Wedge Sneakers ($225) and head out the door.
