After a long-haul flight and mandatory 14-day quarantine, Lara Worthington is back in her old stomping ground of Sydney. The model, along with her husband Sam Worthington and their three children, have relocated to the harbour city for the next few months as the actor prepares for his role in the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Appropriate, which debuts in March.
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old has been busy satisfying our sartorial appetites, which have been sorely craving a solid dose of street style throughout global lockdowns. Worthington has been snapped strolling around the Eastern Suburbs in a number of stylish, designer-laden ensembles that offer an elevated take on the usual summer garb. Think Sydney-meets-SoHo.
Take Worthington’s school run attire, for example. The Share The Base founder opted for a strapless fitted Rick Owens dress, paired with Bottega Veneta‘s stompy BV Lug Boots and a Wardrobe.NYC black blazer perched precariously on her shoulders. The outfit was helpfully curated by an Instagram account dedicated to Worthington’s style.
Perhaps even more interesting is Worthington’s unorthodox take on beach wear. On an excursion to the Bondi seaside with her young sons, the mother of three chose a cropped cream shirt from Bettter, Balenciaga sunglasses, Bottega Veneta white sneakers and black FEEL jeans. It was casual yet chic, and as someone who always struggles to swap shirts for swimwear, Worthington’s choices made me feel seen.
An evident fan of all-black attire, Worthington donned a leather Khaite blazer with the same FEEL straight leg jeans and yet another pair of Bottega Veneta footwear, this time the cream and black Tire ankle boots.
She later wore that same pair out to a long lunch for local label Albus Lumen with a number of Sydney’s style set. Wearing a loose strapless top and pants from the brand, Worthington made a case for the day-to-night appeal of the coveted boots.
We’d like to thank Worthington in advance for blessing us with these much-needed street style bites that take a refreshingly unconventional approach to warm-weather dressing. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to edit our summer wardrobes accordingly.
