Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Kate Moss is Breezy in Black
[Welcome to Celebrity Chic on the Cheap, where our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities (like super sexy Cameron Diaz) are spending $5,000 and more on an ensemble, you an spend way less...and save the rest for Margarita Mondays.]
Kate Moss is ridiculously beautiful, not easy to relate to, and more than a bit troubled…my favorite kind of celebrity. And one of the few celebs whose casual style is perhaps even better than her red carpet looks. She somehow makes the simplest outfits look totally haute couture and runway ready.
Who knew an all black outfit could look so carefree and perfect for spring? The monochromatic scheme of this look is my favorite part. Normally I’m all about pops of color, but sometimes it’s not necessary at all. The blazer is the perfect layer for spring, and underneath is a simple but adorable lacey tank that is a perfectly viable standalone piece. The shorts are a modest length, but still flattering and cute.
A pair of wedges is a great casual summer shoe (please, for the love of all things holy and fashionable, say no to flip flops). Kate’s big hat, round sunglasses, and crossbody bag with a chain strap are the perfect accessories to jazz the outfit up a little while still being understated. This look is so basic, but still so visually captivating, and a great alternative to typical spring/summer fashion.
