Kate Bosworth Gives Us Spring Styling Fodder to Use Right Now

We inevitably fall into rules and predictable patterns with the arrival of Fall and Winter — dark colors, heavy fabrics. Some is seasonal necessity, but you can rework the dress code to allow for pretty pops of print and a crisp, clean palette. Kate Bosworth's latest is a lesson in working that angle to the fullest, stepping out for an appearance in Sydney in Preen's modern floral-print blouse and coordinating pencil skirt with a sexy sheer inset. Right down to her Casadei pumps, Kate worked the fresh, Spring-ready look, but we'll give you some tips on making the ensemble work for right now.

  • If you're lucky enough to live in a warmer climate all year long, there's really no need to tweak the combo. If you aren't, look to a cool, fitted blazer to top it off, while still keeping it sleek.
  • If the chill is really starting to set in, there are other ways to warm up the look. Add a (faux) fur-lined anorak to the mix and swap out your pumps for ankle boots.
  • You can get away with florals and whites all year long, but if the look seems to scream Spring, mix and match a floral blouse like Kate's with cozy Fall trousers or add a slouchy sweater to your crisp pencil skirt. The important thing to remember is that opposites do attract — outfits look infinitely more interesting when you play with textures, prints, and colors.
