If we've learned anything from Kate Hudson over the years, it's that she's not so different from her Almost Famous character, and fabled band-aid, Penny Lane. Forget the rock star boyfriends, they have unrivaled bohemian style and shade prowess. What's more is that Hudson can even make her flower child persona translate to more official engagements. During her recent visit to Sirus XM radio, she went with a decidedly relaxed take on a suit, sporting a buff-hued, roomy drawstring waist coat jacket and matching shorts. She accessorized with a delicate, turqouise bead necklace and petrol mirrored Ray-Ban aviators — they're kind of the like the 2014 take on the ones she wore as Lane, no? In the heat of summer, her look is the perfect compromise between staying cool (both literally and figuratively) and professional, if need be.
