Kate Bosworth Is Setting the Bar High on Summer Date-Night Style

We've already waxed poetic about Kate Bosworth's personal style, but equally impeccable is how it relates to and complements that of her husband's, Michael Polish. The glamorous couple recently stepped out in a mélange of black—a well-tailored suit for him, and a romantic Brock Collection dress for her—which dispels any myths that warm-weather occasion wear has to be colorful to be impactful.

The California-inspired, vintage-feeling silhouette of the actress's frock keeps its moody hue from reading goth—the addition of playful drop earrings lend further ease, and a breezy ponytail and natural makeup are an elegant yet summer-ready choice in glam. Set next to her beau, the duo epitomizes timeless sophistication. Next time the pressure is on to put forth an impressive, entrance-making ensemble for you and your date, don't overlook the power of basic black; even in the summer—it's a wardrobe classic for a reason.
