Sundance Style: Black is the New Black

Some of our favorite looks from Sundance 2011!

Park City, UT’s Sundance Film Festival may be notoriously associated with bright, puffy coats and over-the-top fur boots, but the overall style at this year’s fest was (thankfully) anything but. Minimalism reigned supreme as stars opted to go head-to-toe in black.

Celebs like Eva Green, Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana and Demi Moore all attended their respective premieres in all black ensembles. While the dressiness of the get-ups touched both ends of the spectrum – Eva and Demi opted for more formal black dresses (Demi wore a frock from Victoria Beckham’s line), while stars like Zoe (wearing a Roland Mouret jacket) and Kerry kept their looks cool and casual in basic denim and black on top. Taking a cue from Manhattanites, black was easily a favorite amongst Park City’s visitors from Tinseltown.

Sundance has undoubtedly become one of the locales to be seen for Hollywood’s hottest, so it’s no surprise that It-girl Kate Bosworth looked chic and stylish in the chilly temps. For the January 23rd premiere of her movie ‘Little Birds,’ Bosworth opted for a timeless black Burberry coat. (Appropriately paired with black tights and black pumps.) Kate switched up her look the following day when she attended Chefdance, going for a softer feel with a shearling-lined Helmut Lang jacket over a Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress.

On the sidewalks of Main Street, it was all about incorporating winter-appropriate statement pieces into a subdued outfit. For example: pairing a plaid flannel scarf with a standout hair piece, or donning a fur vest underneath your jacket. Draw inspiration from actress Lake Bell’s laid back look – all gray can easily make for a drab look, but Lake’s green satchel and fur duck boots are the perfect accessories to keep her outfit from being anything but boring. Seasonal accents are an effortless way to jazz up any getup – without overkill.
