During NYFW there's just as much great fashion happening on guests attending the shows, as there is on the runway. And these lust-worthy looks seen on show-goers often provides for immediate style inspiration for the current season. Case in point: Kate Hudson's Michael Kors outfit will convince you to add an embellished blazer to your wardrobe STAT.
Among the star-studded front row of the Michael Kors Spring 2020 Collection runway show sat a glowing Kate Hudson, who donned an ombré blonde bob and a full look from the designer's Resort 2020 collection. The actress, fashion designer, and mom of three, looked chic in a suit-set that included a tailored black-and-white glen plaid wool trouser and matching blazer. However, it was the two-tone checked boyfriend blazer she sported over a simple white ribbed cotton tank that really stood out — courtesy of its glistening stud-and-crystal embroidered sleeves. It's this subtle yet intricate detailing that sets it a part from more traditional styles.
A key piece for any fall wardrobe, a blazer likely ranks pretty high up on your shopping list right now. This tried-and-true design is a quick and easy way to elevate even the most basic outfits— putting a polished spin on just about any look. And as Hudson proves in this look, you can have a little fun with this closet staple, too. Tailored for a relaxed fit, the star's version is intricately detailed with pops of shimmer and sparkle that extend down the arms of her blazer to bring a luxe update to the style's classic cut and print.
And, while you can certainly wear your ornate blazer with a matching bottom à la Hudson, the key to styling this piece is keeping the pairings minimal and allowing the jacket to speak for itself. Which means, it can also bring a special touch to a casual jeans and a graphic tee. Or, you can opt to slip on an adorned-blazer with a simple slip dress for an elegant yet unexpected cocktail party look.
