Insprired by Gwyneth Paltrow

by Editor on April 26, 2010 · 3 comments

As much as I love watching the willowy-figured Gwyneth Paltrow throughout the awards season, I wanted to write an article that focuses on her daily look.   Gwyn’s real life style is chic, flattering, and attainable.

In this article, I capture Paltrow’s recent looks on various occasions.   Following each look, you’ll find an outfit to effortlessly recreate her style.

Gwyn’s Casual Look and Outfits To Recreate

During the day Gwyneth dresses for comfort, adjusts to a situation, yet looks casual chic.   Gwyn chooses practical pieces that perfectly mirror her lifestyle, whether it is trotting with kids,  traveling, running errands or decking out for a night with a girlfriend.


Look One  –  Downtown Chic

Capture Gwyn’s downtown chic elegance with this versatile asymmetrical leather jacket as a foundation piece.

Continue recreating Paltrow’s day look, by throwing on a well-fitting pair of black skinny jeans (If you are lusting for a perfect pair of skinny designer jeans in black wash and willing to invest, J Brand ‘912 The Pencil’ Stretch Jeans in Shadow Wash is an excellent option).

Gwyn pairs up her short leather jacket with a long cardigan, but I found an even better option for the body conscious ladies.  The smart LNA Long Sleeve Back Tail Tee is longer in the back than the front and masterfully drapes over the booty, adds extra coverage and visual separation between the two blacks: the jeans and the jacket.

Complete the look by stepping into comfortable lace up booties and stashing all of your necessities into a supple grain leather bag.

Look Two – Classy Casual Around Town

Go classy like Gwyneth with a timeless trench coat, which incorporates many elements of Gwyn’s Burberry trench at a fraction of a price.    Throw on a favorite pair of skinny or boyfriend jeans.  Then complete the look by stepping into grey wedge booties to add height without giving up comfort.

Look 3 – Easy Convenience

The key element to spending a day out with small kids is convenience.  And what is more convenient than a right maxi dress.

Get Gwyn’s look by slipping into this universal dress that is chic, stylish, and will work for most body types.   It drapes over a figure in just the right spots and masterfully camouflages body flaws.

Gwyn pairs her dress with a pair of flat heel woven Givenchy gladiator sandals.   Get her bohemian look with these low wedged, gladiator sandals that have an eye catching labyrinth of strap details.  Complete the summer look with this white layered, fly-away cardigan.

Gwyn’s Workout Outfit


Gwyn keeps lean by running (as well as doing pilates).  Get the same sporty slick look as Gwyn with the exact same pieces that Paltrow is wearing.   Look stylish with Stella McCartney aviator shades, keeps the wind in check with a stylish running jacket, and shows some skin with breezy terry capri sweat pants.

And if you are going to splurge on one item, paying a higher price for a good pair of running shoes will reap benefits in a form of healthy joints and knees.

Gwyn’s Evening Look


Gwyn transitions from day to night with ease and while her choices are never over-embellished, she always looks glam.   Go classy like Gwyn and make a statement by choosing  a perfect little black dress.  Paltrow chooses a classy little black dress that has a cutout details twist.  You can do the same with a sexy number below.  (For a lower priced alternative than the dress below, consider this cutout dress.)

Or if you are looking for a classy look that is less revealing, yet shows off legs, turn to this pretty ruffled tunic.

Last, whichever dress you decide to go with, accentuate your legs, like Gwyn with a pair of leg elongating killer pumps.
