Olivia Wilde proved she’s a master of casual ensembles when she stepped out in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The 38-year-old actress turned director looks effortlessly cool in cropped jeans and bold black cowboy boots.
She was mocking after her return from the Venice Film Festival, when her upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling — which was devastated by critics — earned the accolade with the fastest-selling IMAX screening of every film to date.
Take it easy: Olivia Wilde, 38, looked effortlessly cool and casual in Daisy Dukes and cowboy boots while in Los Angeles on Thursday
Olivia looked at ease as she stepped into town in a plain white T-shirt and her Daisy Dukes, which had severely frayed hems.
She showed her fitted legs under the shorts, culminating in her high black boots, which were decorated with striking feather-like charcoal motifs.

Finally home: She was back on the West Coast after attending the world premiere of her second directorial film Don’t Worry Darling at the Venice Film Festival
Olivia completed her outfit with two bags: a smaller brown suede Gucci bag she wore over her torso, and a larger gray tote bag.
After she finished her shopping, she saw her get in her car and drive away.
Olivia looked cheerful, despite her new film Don’t Worry Darling receiving disappointing reviews from critics. The film currently has a disappointing 43 percent rating among critics polled by Rotten Tomatoes, and the film’s score drops to an even worse 22 percent when only including critics from respected publications.
But even if critics didn’t care for the psychological thriller, fans are certainly looking forward to it — or at least a chance to see her friend Harry Styles live.
IMAX claimed on Friday that Don’t Worry Darling became the fastest-selling film ever for previews in its premium theaters, slated for September 19.
The screenings, which sold out within 24 hours, will be followed by a live Q&A broadcast in theaters with Olivia, Harry, Gemma, Nick, Kate Berlant and other cast members, although Florence and Chris will be noticeably absent.

The television star had just finished the world premiere at the Venice Film Festival of her second directorial film Don’t Worry Darling, which starred Florence Pugh, her current boyfriend Harry Styles and Chris Pine.
The lovebirds promoted the film with Chris and co-stars Gemma Chan and Nick Kroll, but Florence, who plays the lead role, was noticeably absent from many of the festivities.

During the premiere screening and on the red carpet, Florence seemed to keep her distance from her director.
It never ends: Trouble within the production spilled over into the premiere when some fans on social media became convinced that Harry had spit on his costar Chris when he sat down next to him, though there’s no evidence of that, and Pine’s rep denied it.
