Now that fall is officially here, you probably have plenty on your mind. Whether it’s picking out a chic cape, completing your collection of sweater dresses, or trying to pinpoint the perfect animal-print accessory to see through the season in style, we know you have lots on your mind. Luckily, there is a bounty of inspiration to help you with these tricky decisions, which brings us to today’s story. Our latest edition of Steal Her Style features three perfectly put together transition ensembles, courtesy of Kate Bosworth, Julia Jones, and Rachel Bilson, that will help you changeover from summer to fall. Whether you’re looking for a stylish stand-in for Kate’s slouchy red sweater, a suitable alternative to Julia’s pleated leather miniskirt, or you’re just longing to emulate Rachel’s casual-yet-chic aesthetic, we’re sure we have plenty of inspiration and ideas. With that, we present our latest edition of Steal Her Style. Read on!
Whether she’s wowing the crowds on the red carpet, sitting front row at fashion week, or being snapped by paparazzi on the streets of Hollywood, it’s safe to say that Kate Bosworth is always dressed to impress. Case in point: earlier this month, Kate was spotted at LAX airport in an unfussy-yet-stylish ensemble that we just love. Her slouchy red sweater and cuffed boyfriend jeans are great pieces for flying—they’re cute, casual, and, most importantly, comfortable—but we’re particularly pleased with her choice of accessories. Her military-inspired Hudson sandals, Celine sunglasses and Mulberry tote are the perfect way to finish off the outfit—they gave the ensemble a directional element without going overboard. So, how do we steal Kate’s unfussy in-flight style? We suggest starting with a loose-fitting sweater, such as Sparkle & Fade’s Seamed V-Neck Sweater ($48) or J Crew’s Cashmere Slouchy Sweater ($168), and a pair of relaxed boyfriend jeans, like AG Adriano Goldschmied’s Tomboy Boyfriend Jeans ($235). Next, pick up a canvas tote such as Lucky Brand’s Trippin’ Out Tote ($85.90) or Topshop’s Canvas & Leather Holdall ($135). Complete your outfit by slipping into H By Hudson’s Lucilla Flat Strapped Sandals ($57.29).
Actress Julia Jones may be best known for playing the role of Leah Clearwater in Twilight: Eclipse, but soon, dear readers, we’re sure she’ll be equally as well-known for her stellar sense of personal style. Just look at the chic ensemble she put together for InStyle’s Summer Soiree in August—pleated leather skirt, loose silk top, and pointed pumps. The outfit is simple and yet totally chic. Plus, with the addition of opaque tights, you can easily transform this outfit into a flawless fall ensemble. Now, how do we steal Julia’s effortless party style? We recommend starting with an of-the-moment pleated skirt such as Alice + Olivia’s Pleated Leather Skirt ($395) or Rebecca Minkoff’s Leather Pleated Clueless Skirt ($754.88)—both these options are smart investments. Next, pick out a sleeveless silk top that will complement your skirt—we like Adam’s Piped Silk-Chiffon Tank ($155.25) or Banana Republic’s Raw Edge Ruffle Top ($39.99). Finally, choose a pair of suede pumps that will work with not only this ensemble, but a pair of skinny jeans or dressy shorts. Our faves? Dolce Vita’s Hayword Suede Platform Pumps ($160), ASOS’s Pumpkin Suede Pointed Court Shoes ($92.68), and Steve Madden’s Darrina Heels ($89.05).
We can always count on actress Rachel Bilson to put together a perfect off-duty ensemble, whether she’s meeting friends for dinner, doing a spot of shopping, or taking her beloved dog, Thurman Murman, for a walk. Proof positive: last week, Rachel was spotted enjoying a meal with friends in Glendale, California, wearing a casually cool ensemble. She started her look with two wardrobe essentials—a boyfriend blazer and rolled-up jeans—and then mixed in of-the-moment accessories—namely lace-up ankle booties and a printed scarf—to elevate her look from simple to smart. Only one question remains: how do we steal Rachel’s chic style? First, pick up Rachel’s exact jeans via Paige Denim’s Skyline Ankle Peg Jeans ($189). Then, look for a fitted boyfriend blazer such as ASOS’s Cropped Boyfriend Blazer ($77.51) or Kenna-T’s Blazer ($152.90). Next, give your ensemble a personal touch with a printed scarf like Whistles’ Woven Animal Scarf ($84.25) or AE’s Long Dot Scarf ($19.50). For the finishing touch, add a pair of laced-up suede booties—we love Rosegold’s Genie Suede Platform Booties ($185), Pour La Victoire’s Lang Lace-Up Wedge Booties ($306) and Ash’s Honey Suede Booties ($200).
