Whether she’s rocking a stunning red-carpet gown or chasing after her daughter Nahla in jeans and a T-Shirt, Halle Berry always looks amazing. The secret to this Oscar winner’s style: she knows what works for her and keeps her look consistent. For nights, she favours fitted dresses and suits that flatter her curvy, athletic build while her daytime look is less glam and more California cool: flowing tops, worn denim with subtle boho-inspired touches, accessorized with glowing, healthy skin.
Here’s how to get Halle’s sexy and polished look:
1. Draped body-conscious dress
Berry has a petite and curvy frame that she’s not afraid to show off with fitted, body-conscious pieces. An asymmetrical ruched dress like this Helmut Lang twist drape dress ($382) defines your curves while the long sleeves balance out the look making it the perfect mix of sexy and demure.
2. White T-shirt and geometric statement necklace
When she’s not walking down the red carpet, Halle likes to keep her look casual and low-key. She’s often photographed in a loose fitted T-Shirt and jeans with a fresh-faced glow. To get Halle’s laid-back style, choose a well cut basic T-shirt (£14) and pair it with a modern geometric necklace like this Arielle De Pinto one (€515) for a look that’s anything but plain.
3. Cropped jacket
Halle knows how to work her petite proportions with lots of fitted cropped jackets that help give the appearance of longer legs. A cropped motorcycle-inspired sweater jacket like this Samantha Biker Jacket by Rag and Bone (US $625), adds an instant sexy edge to a simple outfit.
4. Bootcut jeans
Take a break from your usual go-to skinny jeans and try add a pair of fitted mid-rise bootcut jeans (£265) to your wardrobe this season. The slightly flared leg helps balance out wider hips while looking totally sexy with a pair of heels.
5. Printed scarf
Scarves are a great way to dress up a simple T-shirt and add extra warmth. Layer a cropped jacket with a gorgeous patterned scarf like this one by Theodora & Callum (US $175) that features hits of rusty orange, purple and chocolate.
6. Fringed bag
One of Halle’s favourite accessories is a large fringed purse. Perfect for a busy Mom on the go, a fringed bag like this one by KC Mode (£20), adds a decidedly glam-bohemian feel to your everyday look.
7. Gold hoop earrings
Stunning in their simplicity, a pair of hoops like these African Gold earrings by YooLa (US $53) add a touch of exotic sophistication to anything you pair them with.
8. Sexy ankle pump
Channel your inner Catwoman with a pair of sultry ankle pumps like these two-toned suede beauties by KORS Michael Kors ($285).
9. BB Cream
For Halle’s signature glow, forgo the foundation and opt for something light like this Maybelline BB Cream ($11) which includes coverage, moisturizer and sun protection.
