Kate Upton may have bared it all for Sports Illustrated, but when she’s off-duty, she loves to cover up.

While arriving at LAX with her boyfriend and pet dog on Tuesday, Kate wrapped herself in all black separates from head to toe. She wore black skinny jeans, a black tee, and then topped off the combo with a black jacket. Complementing the mix were sunnies, a woven crossbody bag (most likely from Bottega Veneta), and a really interesting pair of boots detailed with tassels.

I love her outfit. She looks insanely cool in it. Would you agree?

In fact, I prefer her this way compared to when she’s dressed to the nines in designer frocks for press tours and whatnot.

Granted, black can be boring, but I like how she kept things interesting by teaming the outfit with tasseled boots. They injected just enough flair into her attire. I couldn’t find any details on the pair, but they look very similar to these Lanvin tasseled boots I found online:

Everything from the paneling to the height of the shaft look very similar to Kate’s boots. The pair is crafted from suede leather and features 4-inch-tall block heels. The boots are quite pricey at $1490, though, so if you’re looking to steal Kate’s edgy style for less, try this less expensive alternative from Michael Kors:
