Branded: Kelly Rowland

When it comes to rocking street style, there are rules. Unwritten rules, of course, but rules to follow nonetheless.

But these guidelines don't come out of thin air: They're set by stylish celebs like Kelly Rowland, who just so happens to be one of 12 recipients of this year's Elle Personal Style Awards. Her title: The New Bohemian.

Kelly's always had a flair for fashion, even back in her Destiny's Child days. In the October issue of Elle, the singer revealed her first big purchase: a pair of thigh-high Dolce & Gabanna denim boots. "I was 18 or 19, and they made me feel a little more grown-up, a little more sexy. I wore them everywhere: during performances, on tour, on days off," she elaborated to the magazine.

While her current street style might have a slightly more mature feel, there are still flashier elements of her aesthetic that borrow from her pop-star past.

Just think of The New Bohemian as part sophisticated boss lady and part 2000s teen icon. Keep scrolling to check out Kelly's top street style looks as of late.

Head-to-toe denim is hardly boring when the top is blousy and the bottoms hug in all the right places.
