Kate Hudson recently trotted around Soho in an unusual summer outfit — it was Malibu surfer girl up top, urban professional from the waist down.
But somehow, it worked: She paired high-waisted black culottes with Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps, a sheer white racerback tank, and a pink lace bralet underneath, and topped it all off with some Chan Luu lapis lazuli bead necklaces and gold aviators.
