Here’s proof that you don’t need a lot to look good — this totally chic outfit from Kate Moss.
The iconic supermodel was spotted out and about in London on Tuesday while looking effortlessly cool in a black oversized sweater. She wore the jumper with these REPLAY Hyperflex skinny jeans and a black handbag. But what she added on top of the mix was what sealed the deal. The extras she used were not only unexpected, but also gave her attire a sexier vibe. Kate finished her getup with tortoise-rimmed sunnies and brown suede ankle boot. The shoes weren’t your usual kind, because they came with asymmetrical shafts that were shaped like wingtips.
If you need an idea for styling oversized sweaters this fall, then consider this look from the model as one for the books. What I really like about it is how easy it is to pull off. It’s very simple, and you certainly don’t need to be a genius to be able to put the attire together. The trick is in making sure you pick the right pieces.
To pull off Kate’s style, you’ll need a really large black sweater, some cool peepers, and edgy architecturally-appealing footwear. Kate’s boots are from Azzedine Alaia. Below are similar style shoes in taupe and black. These boots feature an almond-toe design, suede uppers, 5-inch-tall heels and inch-thick platforms. They’re already sold out online, so if you want a pair, you’ll need to get really creative and resourceful.
You may also consider another style from Alaia that’s currently available over at Yoox. Check out these paneled ankle booties from the label. The shafts on these shoes aren’t as tall, but the “look” is definitely there.
For the girls on a budget, my recommendations would be these boots from Chinese Laundry and Report. Both styles will cost you less than $200, so you don’t have to feel so guilty about spending for a pair.
