Sophia Bush just redefined lingerie dressing when she attended the 2014 Lollapalooza held at Grant Park in Chicago over the weekend. The actress wore what seemed like a black nightie, er, slip dress, when she dropped by the Soho House Chicago Pre-Opening event on Saturday.
Interestingly, she actually looked chic in her “sleepwear”. Sophia styled the dress with an army green jacket and finished the combo with chestnut brown ankle boots. She kept her hair down in loose waves and wore stacks of bangles as army candy.
It was actually amazing how she was able to transform the lace-trimmed lingerie into a day dress. She literally toned down its bedroom-bound sexy vibe.

What do you think of the pairing Sophia put together? Do you approve?
I think she looks great. The way she put that black chemise in check is pure genius. I also think what she has here is an outfit idea worth considering — especially if you’ve run out of looks to try this season.
Before we proceed copying Sophia’s style, let’s zoom in on her boots for a moment. If you look closely, they’re not just your typical suede ankle booties. Some parts are actually woven, and there are gold tips decorating the toes for a touch of glam.
I’m not sure where Sophia got her shoes, but here’s a similar style from Matt Bernson that you may consider. These feature woven raffia uppers trimmed with leather. The cone-shaped heels on these boots are just 3 inches tall so they’re very comfortable to walk in:

You may also try these camel suede boots from A.P.C. if you prefer a chunkier pair. These shoes come with slightly shorter heels at 2 inches, but much taller shafts:

Once you’ve acquired the right boots, start putting together the outfit using these essentials from Shopbop. Some of the accessories I’ve included in this layout are a bit pricey so feel free to substitute them with whatever fits your budget:
