We owe Kerry one for opening our eyes to this magical and unexpected combination of separates – a pleated miniskirt (hers is Marni), a mixed-medium black Isabel Marant tee, leopard pumps and a structured feminine purse (both Christian Louboutin). Because matching is overrated.
We were pretty happy with our jacket collections … until now. Jamie makes black leather moto toppers look so last week with her studded multicolor BCBG Max Azria jacket that she styles with an Elvis tee, white jeans and a black-and-white doctor’s tote.
Sweats: no longer just for sick days and sleeping. At least not when the fabric is in the form of a pleated skirt. The British starlet tops her gray Markus Lupfer mini with a “C” tee (also by the designer) and bright blue Saint Laurent pumps. Which makes this the first time sweats have ever been worn with monograms and designer heels.
A flowy blazer. Light jeans. White fedora. You’d think Diane Kruger had shopped her grandmother’s closet before embarking on a boat trip, but she makes it work. How? By picking pieces that are fitted (see: her Diane von Furstenberg blazer) instead of schlumpy and adding killer accessories like cap-toe Christian Louboutin flats and a Rochas leather bag.
Three reasons why is the luckiest lady on the planet: 1.) She’s married to , 2.) She looked like this at the Met Gala and 3.) She owns these tulip-painted jeans, which she styles with a slightly sheer black top, black pumps and aviators.
Get ready to have your mind blown: Karolina’s bright-blue miniskirt is not actually a skirt – it’s a pair of culottes! From Zara! The supermodel adds a tweed moto jacket by Sandro, black booties and Ray-Ban Clubmasters to complete her ensemble.
Memorial Day, are you here yet? No? Well, we don’t care. We’re busting out an outfit just like this one. We already have pieces like her sheer Naven button-down, white ankle jeans and strappy sandals (hers are from her new collection for Chinese Laundry) in our closets, so all that’s left is to put them together.
The silk Parker ensemble has two major (and compatible) trends covered: a black-and-white color palette and attention-grabbing prints. Plus, she follows an important style rule by breaking up the loud pattern with a solid black cami.
Can you spot the three major trends covered with her plunging Prabal Gurung dress? A peplum, a bold print and sheer detailing. And of course, her accessories (white pumps and a coordinating envelope clutch) are spot-on too.
We think we might have to buy striped Michael Stars top for Memorial Day weekend. The Mad Men actress (who’s been on her fashion A-game lately) pairs the shirt with MiH jeans, oxfords, a structured Rochas satchel and her go-to sunnies.
This isn’t first time at the “Love Her Outfit” rodeo (as in, she’s been featured in this gallery many times before), but her hot-pink jeans, crocheted Heartloom sweater and metallic wedges are like a summer style trifecta not to be missed.
Looking for a fresh way to style your cutoffs? Crib a page from fashion guide and top them with a leather-sleeved army jacket (hers is JET by John Eshaya) and flat ankle boots. Sure, it’s not exactly beachy, but it’s a great way to stand out in the shorts that will be everywhere this summer.
Olivia’s Zara coral topper is so chic and versatile that it would probably make a burlap sack look amazing. Last time she wore the coat, the fashionista paired it with a flouncy skirt and white blouse, but it also looks great with her black Daryl K trousers, studded SchoShoes flats and Givenchy satchel.
Leather is not just for cold weather, as Heather demonstrates in her peach mesh-back Alice + Olivia dress. The actress clearly knows that with a statement-making piece, it’s important not to OD on accessories, and keeps it simple with nude Casadei cage sandals and minimal jewelry.
Reason number 5,629,432 we have a girl crush on the : Her street style is so effortless and accessible. We’ve added her sheer maxi, pointy flats and layered pendants to our shopping list (and her Dolce & Gabbana straw bag to our lust list).
Editors here have been daydreaming about crocheted top since they first set eyes on it. The actress could pair the piece with anything and we’d still cover it, but we especially like her styling: Plein Sud leather pants, a studded Jimmy Choo satchel and pink pumps.
Another week, another look we want to own. This one is made up of cool paint-splattered skinnies (does the woman have a separate walk-in closet for all her printed jeans?), a white tee, a denim jacket and studded gladiator sandals.
If you’re going to wear harem pants in front of a guy, you better be pairing them with a damn sexy top. (Oh, and best to avoid the drop-crotch variety.) The actress counters the fashion-y-ness of her billowy A/X Armani Exchange bottoms with ankle-strap heels, a plunging purple tank and a chic MaxMara bag for a look that’s surprisingly guy-hot.
Getting married this season? We just found your rehearsal dinner dress. Not getting married this season? We just found the dress that’s going to make dudes stop in their tracks and propose to you. The peekaboo sleeves are unique, the high hemline is hot and the bright white shade and bold accessories show you’re not afraid of the spotlight.
Most Coachella style doesn’t translate to the real world (apologies to those of you who are wearing floral crowns in the office right now). This off-the-shoulder, printed dress (from Show Me Your Mumu), however, screams music festival, but works away from the field with a pair of B Brian Atwood stiletto sandals, a coordinating belt and a quilted bag.
How do you take a basic cream dress from meh to major? Look to Sophia, who makes the prim H&M mini feel Coachella-cool thanks to killer accessories: a multicolor beaded necklace, an orange Lucite clutch and shiny gold Monika Chiang oxfords.
We could do a Google Images search of and we’d want to wear pretty much every outfit in the results. But this one stands out to us for two reasons: her flowy Show Me Your Mumu maxi in a unique print and her cropped denim jacket (which perfectly complements the skirt’s colors).
Today’s lesson in layering brought to you by Olivia. A spring coat can hit below the hemline of your mini (both her coral topper and animal-print skirt are Zara), but keep the difference to just a few inches. You can either tuck your shirt or leave it out as long as it’s not super-baggy. (Oh, and it never hurts to throw on a pair of Elizabeth and James peep-toe lace-ups!)
Even off duty, Jason Statham s squeeze looks like she’s on the catwalk. The model finds a sexy mate for her basic ribbed tank, this printed Kain Label skirt, then adds gold jewels and sky-high sandals to complete the look.
This is why we want to adopt Emma as our style spirit animal. She combines unexpected elements (a sleeveless taupe blouse and mint stovepipes – both under $100 at A/X Armani Exchange! – and embellished Tory Burch loafers) for a very fashiony result.
The Dallas star knows this spring is all about attention-grabbing prints. That’s why she mixes patterned pants with hot-pink floral heels. But she avoids looking clownish by wearing the pieces with a black top and jacket.
This is enough to convince us that orange-and-white is the new black-and-white. wears the summery shades on a tangerine Topshop sweater with a white pencil skirt, orange Gucci ankle-strap sandals and a studded white Valentino clutch.
We can’t wait to copy look, made up of a silk white tee and sea glass-green Parker pants. And we’ll be sure to wear it with nude shoes as she does since adding chunky dark shoes is the quickest way to ruin an outfit like this (besides red wine and tomato sauce, that is).
When you wear a maxi as colorful and busy as this Lovers + Friends one (we don’t even have enough room to list all the shades and patterns) and with a unique crisscross back to boot, you can go easy on the accessories. Olivia knows this and adds a pair of classic shades, summery wedges and delicate hoop earrings.
Showing a lot of skin below? Cover up on top. follows this fashion advice and combines her itty-bitty cutoffs with an IRO double-breasted blazer. (She also smartly adds nude Jimmy Choos to make her legs look longer.)
We know it must have been difficult for to pick out a dress without a princessy skirt and loads of sparkle. So we have to give her props for going outside her comfort zone in this Elizabeth and James mini with sheer cutouts, which goes perfectly with her intricate Jean-Michael Cazabat heels.
Confession: Two StyleWatch editors spent an entire meeting discussing how amazing the actress looks in this second-skin dark teal leather dress. We’ve scheduled a follow-up meeting to cover her stunning eye makeup and perfect hair.
Don’t misinterpret our love of orange Catherine Malandrino jumpsuit and spiked Kami Lerner necklace for our permission to try this look at home. Despite the flattering sweetheart neckline and spring-ready color, it’s one of those ensembles that’s best left to Hollywood.
This is a prime example of why proportions are important. Rosie tempers the sexiness of her supershort button-front mini by pairing it with a casual and loose striped top, plus suede ankle booties (a much better choice than strappy heels, especially for daytime).
What’s the key to making short-shorts look classy? Lily knows it’s a.) choosing a pair that aren’t too tight, b.) adding a chic blazer and c.) keeping the bright colors to a minimum. (She smartly goes for classic black pumps and a touch of orange thanks to her Loeffler Randall clutch.)
#TheMoreYouKnow: Pants that are darker on the back and have a tuxedo stripe are ultra-slimming. Bella wears hers with pieces that pick up on the colors (a black top with a white topper), plus a prim sky-blue handbag.
Gasp! Could it be? A pant print we haven’t yet tried? The model steps out in a pair of gray-and-black chevron jeans and an otherwise understated outfit: a half-tucked button-down, black booties and a killer Céline bag.
“I think I want a turban.” “I want one too!” This is a real exchange between two editors after seeing the sport one with a polished outfit that balances the funkiness of her headpiece: $49 Costa Blanca chevron-striped shorts, a white tie-front blouse and coral ankle-strap sandals.
We’ve got to be honest: We picked this outfit solely because of the sandals. Aztec-printed kicks are giving us some serious shoe envy. But that’s not to say we don’t love the rest of her look – a front-slit maxi, a printed spaghetti-strap blouse and a bold red Vince Camuto tote – too.
If camo is supposed to make her blend in, we’d consider this a fail. But if her Black Orchid skinnies, worn with a just-sheer-enough mint Gap button-down and strappy sandals, are meant to make her stand out, the look’s a success!
When you’re done obsessing over Jamie’s neon Lancaster Paris bag – you might even consider splurging on it – take notes on how well-constructed the rest of her outfit is. The actress pairs floral skinnies with a textured sleeveless blouse and metallic sandals for a look that can easily go from day to night.
Wear MSGM orange pants with a matching peplum top, plus a two-tone DVF blazer, baby-blue Tibi heels and a big red bag all at once? We’d never! Oh, what’s that you say? Olivia Palermo did it? OK, then we’ll put on the outfit right now.
Love is in the air. We’re not talking about her relationship with Tom Sturridge; we’re referring to our growing style crush on , who is effortlessly guy-hot in a tiered boho skirt, embroidered top and red sunnies. (Those lace-up sandals, however, are pure girl-hotness.)
At $484, the actress’s flowy floral Alice + Olivia skirt sure ain’t cheap, but we’d be willing to wear it day and night for the entire summer (with an Alice + Olivia tank and bright clutch as she does) to get the cost-per-wear down to mere pennies.
Kristin’s pins make us want to hit the gym, but her chic separates make us want to hit the mall first. The newlywed pairs printed shorts with a basic button-down tank and adds two It Girls of Summer accessories: a quilted bag and ankle-strap sandals.
She may love Blue, but clearly has a thing for black and white too. She knows the secret to making black leather shorts and her white Helmut Lang blazer look chic and not too try-hard or severe: Add a hipster-approved bowler hat and colorful pumps.
This ensemble almost ended up in Obsessed or Hot Mess, but three out of four PeopleStyleWatch.com editors admitted their love for J Brand vest and trousers, Alexander Wang bustier and cap-toe Saint Laurent pumps, so we had to include it here!
Diane, will you please come over and pick out our outfits for the next month? The actress proves she’s a mix-and-match pro with this effortless collaboration of separates – a star-print blouse, flared miniskirt and Robert Clergerie brogues, which she tops off with a straw fedora and floral-print bag.
We wish we were daughter so we could raid her closet on the reg. One of Hollywood’s most stylish moms steps out in shimmery brocade short-shorts, which she balances out with a cream blouse. She even gets an A-plus in the accessories department for her embellished ankle-strap sandals and that killer neon bag.
All hail , the queen of denim! The actress breathes new life into a pair of flares with a polka-dot Jet blouse, spotted scarf and Aztec-print Tory Burch satchel that we just added to our “Will Buy When We’re Rich” list.
We always reach for bright colors and crazy prints in the summer, but Rosie shows that neutrals can be just as head-turning. She rocks a breezy Vanessa Bruno eyelet top with a Cholé A-line skirt, snake-print clutch and nude Brian Atwood pumps.
Skinny jeans will always be a wardrobe staple, but how do you keep them interesting? Take a cue from who punches up her denim with a white blazer, blue cap-toe leopard pumps, a statement necklace and an oversize Dolce & Gabanna handbag.
looks like she’s going on a superchic picnic (where high heels are totally allowed). She tops her cuffed skinnies with a summer-friendly gingham button-down (hers is by Splendid) and cutout white pumps.
How do you get people to use the words sexy and naughty about a floral dress that’s all buttoned-up? Make sure it has sheer sleeves, a flouncy high hemline and a racy belt as does. Throwing on a pair of killer Tom Ford sandals and a classic Ela clutch doesn’t hurt either.
The latest celeb to wear a literal animal print (so cute, right?), Olivia balances the quirkiness of elephant-emblazoned Banana Republic Milly Collection shorts with a white button-down blouse, a fitted blazer and oxfords.
When we’re not cracking up over Chrissy’s hysterical Tweets, we’re drooling over her ensembles. This one, made up of a silky A.L.C. top, floral-printed trousers and nude sandals, gets an A+ for effortless sexiness.
This Isabel Marant number is the perfect polished-but-relaxed dress for those summer days when you’re at work – and not where you should be, the beach. (And we won’t judge if you end up wearing it with flat sandals, not crazy-high two-tone Christian Louboutin platforms like .)
Dear Alessandra, You should never, ever take off this cropped black Asos tee, bright, printed Rachel Pally maxi and braided leather belt. Unless, of course it’s to lend the pieces to us. Sincerely, PeopleStyleWatch.com
