    Sure, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow, maybe she can wear anything, but who says you can’t consider donning something similar?

    What made it work:

    • Fuss-free hair & make-up with a cut that has a cool edge nonetheless- anything more “done” would just look old
    • Minimal, elegant pumps in a dark hue paired with bare skin for a visual break -flats would have made her look too young
    • While her dress has little to no detailing, it does boast a pretty sculpted shape (her figure is incredible!) in an off-beat color that makes it stand out
    • Take note of how her purse is equally ladylike and full of details with a pop of interesting colors
    • Save all accessories for another look, keep it that simple!
