Celebrate Kate Bosworth's 30th by Shopping Her Style

When we chatted with Kate Bosworth during NYFW last September, the actress modestly demurred at her fashion icon status. Which, based on her age, is a fair argument to make. She just turned 30 years old today—happy birthday, Kate!!!—so she has many more decades ahead to spend honing her signature style.

Judging from her track record of consistently stellar ensembles, however, she might already be there. By relying on certain key pieces, she's created a unique look that millions are dying to copy. Are you a die-hard fan of Kate's look? Start emulating her style by shopping the five essential pieces she loves in the slideshow below.

1. Sheer Panels

Kate's brand of sexy is subtle and strategic: Instead of straight-up cleavage or thigh-high slits, she does layered lace, mesh inserts and gauze-covered cutouts. Click through to shop sheer paneled pieces.
