Actress Kate Bosworth always manages to look effortlessly cool and stylish. How does she do it? Find out how to copy her chic date look.
Actress Kate Bosworth has a style that is both trendy, yet classic. Whether she is walking the red carpet in a couture gown or rocking out at Coachella in a cotton tie-dye dress, her style looks effortless.
Her secret? She mixes trendy looks with classic essentials for a style that is modern and all her own. You may not be able to score a date with her boyfriend, True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård, but you can score her chic date look.
Simple, yet chic
Think nude or tan tones are boring? Think again! Nude tones and white are a chic color match. Bosworth looks amazing in this long tan blazer paired with a white top and scalloped shorts. Copy her look by pairing a chic tan blazer with a white cotton top and either sexy shorts or dark denim jeans.
Resist the temptation to over-accessorize and let your glowing skin do the talking. Pair metallic wedges or nude peep toe platform heels with a tan or nude ensemble.
Bosworth's style often has a fun edge to it -- whether it is a cut-out section of her dress or rocker boots. She knows that looking too perfect is boring. Be willing to take risks with your fashion by showing a little skin in a cut-out dress (trust us, your date will love it!).
If your style runs more towards the feminine, take a chance by pairing a black leather jacket with black boots for a rocker-chic vibe.
"It's role-playing," Bosworth told Nylon about her take on fashion. "And ever since I was very young, I had a very strong understanding of what felt true to me or not."
Cool and colorful
Kate is a fan of basic colors, like black and tan, but she also mixes it up with colorful frocks and eye-catching accessories. The actress often forgoes printed dresses for solid colors, which gives her a classic and sophisticated look.
Speaking of jewelry, Bosworth and her stylist, Cher Coulter, have actually teamed up to launch their own line of reasonably priced accessories called JewelMint.
Kate chooses flowing fabrics or soft and stretchy dresses and tops over stiff and structured looks. To copy her style, pair a long, flowing, pale yellow or blush pink skirt with a sequined cotton tank for a chic date look.
The actress loves to mix high-end designers (such as Chloe and Versace) with budget brands. "All my friends love a bargain, whether or not they can also shop at expensive stores," she says. "Sienna Miller's one of my best friends and we always go bargain shopping!"
