Summer Styling Tricks To Steal From Kate Bosworth


Though she might be best known for her stand-out festival style, Kate Bosworth regularly rocks expertly assembled outfits no matter the season. This summer, consider a few key styling cues from the well-dressed starlet to elevate your lineup of warm-weather ensembles.

Picture this: You've just come off a full day at the office (during the week) or marathon shopping spree (on the weekend) and have a casual evening soiree to attend. Rather than do a full outfit change, simply swap out your conservative pumps or flat sandals for a metallic oxford style with a midi-heel—the look is still laid-back, but with a fashion-girl twist.

Has your go-to sundress already received too much play this season? Layer a slip under a gauzy tunic in its place for a fresh way to bring beachy style to streets. Dress down for day with espadrilles or sneakers, or up for night à la Kate with a luxe clutch and sleek sandals.

We love cutoffs as much as the next girl, but they aren't the lone style of shorts to rock during the summer. Try a pair rendered in leather (real or faux), which often seamlessly takes the place of their denim counterpart—especially when paired with basics such as tees, tanks and button-down shirts.
