The couple of days post-Christmas dinner — and pre-NYE bash — our outfit of choice might just be our favorite lounge pants and a t-shirt (if we're being totally honest). Thankfully, Kate Bosworth's latest supplied us with a worthy bit of inspiration — a way to appear as polished as we hope to be without really trying. Remember boyfriend jeans? We probably all have a pair buried in our closets, and while there's not quite a boyfriend-jean craze, Kate's rendition may just be enough to bring them out of hiding. Instead of sweats, she reached for the easy silhouette to give her overall look that casual-cool factor, which a cozy knit pullover plays right into. The trick is keeping the look from feeling overwhelmingly dressed-down — and that's all in her accessories. Kate's Isabel Marant ankle boots, sleek white satchel, and classic-feeling shades each play their part in dressing up the ensemble. All together, it serves as the perfect reminder that sweatpants aren't the answer. Instead, reach for something chicer, just like Kate did, with our editors' picks.
