Gwyneth Paltrow's style
Whether she is on the red carpet or doing the school run, Gwyneth Paltrow is a fashion trendsetter. She always looks chic and modern -- but it appears effortless. There is no denying that having her padded budget to buy her designer duds would help, but we have rounded up similar items so you can pull off her cool mom style without breaking the bank.
Paltrow's website, Goop, actually has a fashion section in which she features some of her favorite trends of the season.
"The idea is to mix and match high and low with your own personal style," she writes on her website, recommending you splurge on pieces that will carry you from season to season and spend less on those items that will go out of style quickly.
Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay rocker Chris Martin, are parents to Apple and Moses -- and the actress told Harper's Bazaar that her daughter has her own personal style.
"I've been saving my clothes for her since before she was born," she said. "She doesn't like anything avant-garde at all. She likes anything that's pretty, pretty, pretty or has a bow or a ruffle or is pink."
Recreate the look
I love this look that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to a book signing for her cookbook, My Father's Daughter. The Oscar-winning actress and author looked chic in cropped jeans paired with a tan sweater and beige Sergio Rossi cutout booties.
Gwyneth is wearing a tan cashmere sweater, similar to this scoop-back pullover sweater (Express, $39) in desert sand. Most cashmere sweaters are expensive, however this piece is a cashmere blend (or, as the description reads, "kissed by cashmere") so it has that same soft feel, but is easier on the wallet. This cable cropped sweater in stone ($70, Piperlime) would also look great paired with jeans and can easily transition you from summer to fall.
Gwyneth's cropped jeans are perfect for showing off her fabulous booties (more on those below). For those fashionable mamas who will only wear designer denim, the high water skinny cropped jeans by Joe's Jeans ($169, Piperlime) are the perfect fit and wash. For a similar look at a more budget-friendly price, you will love the KUT from the Kloth Catherine slim boyfriend jeans ($73, Nordstrom).
Gwyneth's to-die-for shoes are the Sergio Rossi Maori cutout bootie, however not only are they $870 but they are sold over everywhere. For a similar look, check out the peep-toe cutout wedge bootie in stone ($40, Charlotte Russe). This wedge bootie features cool side cutouts and a sexy peep-toe.
One last bit of fashion wisdom from Gwyneth: "My mother told me to always dress like a lady and I'd never regret it."
