Kate Bosworth is the girl-next-door that most men (and women!) dream of. Not only is she absolutely stunning, but she also seems down-to-earth. She has rocked the fashion files for years, and lately, this radiant beauty has graced the red carpet in the most inspirational of frocks. This is one style queen we would love to be pals with. Kate has cheekbones to die for and a petite frame that designers love. This might explain the array of designer clothing piling out her door.
Kate burst onto the screen in the epic The Horse Whisperer in 1998. She then showed off rock-hard abs on-screen in Blue Crush (2000) and captured the hearts of men worldwide. Since then her star has gone from strength to strength, and with ex-boyfriends such as Orlando Bloom and Alexander Skarsgard, she must be doing something right! Follow these steps to unleash your inner fashionista, Kate Bosworth style.
Casual Does It
Kate is the ultimate surfer chick. Her long blonde hair is usually effortlessly styled to resemble beach-like waves. The shorts and tank-top combo works for this skinny minnie; she is one celebrity who is continuously papped working the casual look, and we are big fans of her dressed-down vibe. From pairing a simple white tee with a mint maxi skirt, a baggy jumper with a sheer skirt or a tropical wrap dress with an oversized shopper tote, she never puts a foot wrong. To achieve this look, invest in some basic gear to tone down fancy pieces. A pair of high-tops will work a treat for the rainy days, and look great paired with helmet-hemmed skirts. Pop a baggy sweater over your chiffon summer maxi/midi frock for a sporty feel. For nights out, keep it simple by pairing a peplum, high-waisted skirt with a simple white tee and costume jewellery.
Praised for her impeccable, fierce festival style, this summer the fabulous Kate showed off her pins in shorts, hunter wellies and funky jackets. She also flaunted her toned tum in maxi skirts and low-slung denim cut-offs. By investing in military jackets, over-sized tees, studded boots and black denim shorts, you can achieve this look for autumn. There is an amazing selection of winter boots available from Penneys at the moment, so definitely pop in for a look; studded boots add that touch of festival fun to any outfit. Military is a major go-to-trend this season so make sure to invest in an over-sized combat jacket, khaki shirt or camouflage parka. If you’ve an extra bit of cash stored away, invest in a pair of Docs; they instantly update your summer florals and denim cut-offs.
Kate has worked the runway in a multitude of glamorous gowns, but she is not afraid to step outside her comfort zone. Stand out from the crowd by wowing your audience in feathers. Feathers and fur add a touch of class and va-va-voom to an outfit; feathered skirts look particularly great on slim frames and can add some curve to ladies who lack in the hip department. Just think of a burlesque dancer; the feathered look packs a powerful wow-factor and should be invested in for the autumn/winter season. The trick to the trend is keeping it minimal. This keeps it classy and allows your feathered statement pieces to speak for themselves. If feathered skirts and dresses are not up your street, then invest in feathered jewellery, headpieces or handbags. They look great, and are not too in-your-face.
