Once in a while wears something we think we could actually pull off – and this ensemble, made up of printed Paige pants, a black tank and Givenchy cage booties, is one of them. Put it on and we guarantee you’ll instantly feel as fierce as she looks.

Even those of us who hadn’t jumped on the crop-top bandwagon had to admit Catherine Malandrino top is pretty perfect. The sheer sleeves and feminine fabric (plus, the fact that she wore it with classic Houghton trousers) balance the skin-baring sexiness of the cut.

This dress, on its own, could come across as grandma-ish. But add chic sandals, oversize sunglasses and an It Girl bag (hers is Tod’s), and it’s suddenly fashionable, not frumpy. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the person wearing the Marchesa Voyage midi is .

Think saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s asymmetrical, draped, comfy dress and immediately ran out to buy one for herself? We can’t blame her since the fit is so flattering and this AllSaints design looks just as good with boho booties (hers are also AllSaints) as it will with flip-flops or wedges.

We found your summer Friday outfit … and Saturday brunch outfit … and Sunday Funday outfit. Bottom line: Stacy’s double-slit Kymerah maxi skirt, eyelet top, orange cross-body and on-trend fedora all deserve a spot in your weekend wardrobe rotation.

Maybe it’s because it’s just too sweltering for jeans, but we’re really crushing on silky printed pants this week. If Gwen’s are too edgy for your taste, opt for a looser fit as seen on Jamie’s Parker pair (worn with blue heels and a Lancaster Paris bag). Wear them with a button-down tucked in for work, then tie it at the waist as soon as you leave the office for happy hour.

The actress shows us how date night is done in this Rebecca Minkoff leather pencil skirt and sheer Mango button-down, which we imagine would leave any guy slack-jawed. As for us, we’re crushing on the Vince Camuto leopard clutch.

“Best outfit I’ve seen all season,” is the subject line one editor used when emailing this photo to another staffer. The model’s Helmut Lang maxi combines an asymmetrical hemline, figure-flattering draping and comfy knit material. And those lace-up espadrilles? Just the icing on the chic cake.

The effortless way Olivia mixes high-fashion pieces with affordable ones is a big part of why we covet her style. This white Aryn K mini (on sale for $49.99 at Urban Outfitters) and nude Aquazzura sandals are just the right neutral pieces to balance her snow leopard blouse.

Have any concerts on the calendar this summer? Here’s what to wear to them. The Saturdays singer’s pleated ASOS skirt and fun Topshop tank are so hot, you might steal the spotlight from whomever’s rocking out on stage.

We always wear our shirts tucked into our maxi skirts, since leaving them out feels schlumpy. But knots her tank above her left hip instead of wearing it under her pretty printed Tolani skirt. Schlump factor: low. Likelihood of us copying this look on the beach this weekend: high.

If white jeans had an official spokesperson, in this shot would be it. She makes them feel sophisticated by teaming hers with chic pieces: a loose red-orange top, a golden chain-link necklace and cuff, Wayfarers, a slouchy cream handbag and camel-and-snakeskin Pedro Garcéa sandals.

Did Miranda raid closet … in 1992? If so, we’d like to borrow the model’s time machine because this daisy-printed cutout dress (which is actually Topshop, not Drew’s) and studded Isabel Marants are an edgy It girl’s summer dream.
16 of 68
The actress goes nearly incognito, which is crazy since we’d want nothing more than to be recognized if we were wearing such a chic look, comprised of a silky Calypso St. Barth black halter maxi, stacked patent platform sandals and a very ’70s wide-brimmed hat.
17 of 68
Why did we look at this black-and-white striped ensemble and not think jailbird? Well, it’s because plays with the proportions of the print and the fit of the pieces: A second-skin, broad-striped mini gets tempered by a breezy sheer Nili Lotan top with a narrower stripe. (A bright Mary Louise Designs necklace breaks things up a bit too!)

Want that By Malene Birger blazer with its contrast lapels. Want that pair of jeans with their perfect cuffing. Want those By Malene Birger red pumps with their sexy silhouette. Want that carryall with its summery appeal. And yes, want that baby with his delectable cheeks.

File this outfit under “Meeting the Boyfriend’s Parents” or “Drinks with the Boss” or “Might Run Into Ex with His New Girlfriend.” Basically anytime you want to come off as poised and polished. does just that in a navy bow-front skirt (from her Paper Crown line), a sleeveless white top, a Cambridge satchel and nude sandals.

Our calf-length skirts were collecting dust in the closet until we saw how Olivia styles hers. She keeps it out of memaw territory by wearing the printed midi with stacked ankle-strap sandals, a killer Alice + Olivia satchel and an unbuttoned-just-the-right-amount top.

Ready for some amazing news? The model’s pleated seafoam maxi is on sale for $55.60 at Victoria’s Secret. We’re taking out our credit cards right now – and ordering a sheer tee, chambray shirt (hers is Sam & Lavi) and a beaded wrap bracelet like her Lola James Jewelry one while we’re at it.

Let’s review some fashion math: Three basics (a simple top, a Levi’s denim jacket and gray booties) plus one not-at-all-basic piece (floral Lovers and Friends short-shorts) add up to one amazing summer outfit.

If the Style Pop host can get away with wearing a Christmasy emerald Partyskirt by Skot Apparel mini in June (and look damn good doing it!), then you can too. It’s all about teaming the winter shade with a white blouse and warm-weather accessories like her strappy Ruthie Davis platforms and funky Perrin Paris clutch, which yes, has a built-in moto glove!

What they teach you in Wearing Animal-Print Maxis 101: Always pair yours with a simple top and laid-back accessories. The supermodel clearly got an A in that class because she teams her Isabel Marant skirt with a basic gray tank, also by the designer, plus a Panama hat and round Stella McCartney shades.
25 of 68
“This outfit is everything” was the subject line of an email containing this photo that one editor sent to another. The fashionista proves once again she’s a total pro at high-low ensembles, teaming her paisley-printed ASOS skater dress (shop it quick!) and H&M belt with a Louis Vuitton carryall, snakeskin Pretty Ballerinas flats and mirrored Westward Leaning sunnies.

If we saw these spiked leather Doma shorts on the hanger, we’d probably just keep walking. But our People StyleWatch Celeb Style Council member manages to make the bold bottoms look surprisingly wearable and appealing by adding classics including a moto jacket (also Doma), a white blouse and simple Ann Taylor ankle booties.
27 of 68
If you’re going to show a lot of leg, cover up on top. This is not a style rule the supermodel subscribes to. And the outfit comes off as hot, but not over-the-top for one reason: Her leather Zadig & Voltaire mini, loose tank, ankle-strap heels and studded clutch are all the same color so the ensemble has a polished, classic-sexy vibe.
28 of 68
For her next magic trick, will use nothing but a skinny red belt and matching pumps to totally transform a basic black tee and Goldsign jeans. She further elevates the simple ensemble with a golden chain necklace and a Louis Vuitton bag we’d sell our firstborn for (kidding, of course).

We are so obsessed with the Modern Family colorful Missoni maxi (what can we say? Chevron makes our pulses race) that we’re able to overlook the bejeweled clodhoppers she’s wearing with it. But with that dress, body, hair and smile, who’s really focusing below the ankles?

If the thought of pencil skirts makes you snooze, the idea of a metallic leather one like Emma’s rockerish Skaist Taylor one should perk you right up. She smartly keeps the rest of her look classic with a black Elizabeth & James tank and coordinating pumps.
31 of 68
Speaking of pencil skirts that don’t bore us in the least, the actress’s bronze Bec & Bridge curve-hugger just went to the top of our shopping lists. We’ll be wearing it with white tees and sandals through summer then switching to a shimmery gray top and pointy-toe pumps come fall.

There’s a reason (well, many reasons) Kelly was an obvious pick to be on the People StyleWatch Style Council: She makes seemingly tricky-to-pull-off pieces (billowy printed bottoms, translucent T-strap heels and majorly chunky jewelry for day) seem effortless. It’s all about balancing the look with a plain tank and minimal makeup so she doesn’t look like she’s on a walk of shame.
33 of 68
We bet somewhere is adding look to her Pinterest board titled “All-American Style.” And we’re equally smitten with the spotted Ralph Lauren dress and her chic trifecta of extras: a denim jacket, major wedges and a two-toned structured purse.
34 of 68
We know we harp on for wearing nothing but black, but we’ve gotta give it to her: She makes the shade look really sexy and interesting here. We love the combo of a leather mini with a sophisticated black blazer, and we’re not mad at those hardware-embellished Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

An epidemic has spread through the PeopleStyleWatch.com offices. Its name: “Tassel Fever.” The cause: Olivia’s necklace. Editors are also feeling faint over her Tibi shorts (the perfect length!), silk Tibi halter (that color!) and straw Gerard Darel carryall (more tassels!).

When we were 16, we were shopping the Delia’s catalog and trying to put together the brightest outfits possible, but the young star goes monochromatic and sophisticated in a beaded top and gray skinnies. The only thing cooler than the combo is that amazing Chanel “Hula Hoop” bag (not available at Delia’s).

“I can totally see myself wearing what Jessie J is wearing,” said almost no one ever. Until this photo surfaced. The fashion risk-taker plays it safe(r) in hot-pink pants, a sheer black top and a zebra-print tote.

The selects a color combo we’ll be testing out, oh, tomorrow: aqua, white and yellow. We could buy our own pieces, but we’d much rather just borrow her Céline sandals and Hermès Birkin bag. Whaddya say, Reese? Just for the month of August maybe?

“All aboard the printed-pants bandwagon. This is your conductor speaking. It’s time to go beyond polka dots and florals and try something fresh like these zebra-patterned Hudson skinnies. Balance the bold bottoms with a solid top (mine is Michael Stars) and sleek pumps, both in a coordinating color.”

No, Kate isn’t your safari tour guide. She’s your style guide for nailing top-to-bottom neutrals. The actress pairs a button-down with fitted shorts (both Elizabeth and James) and buckle-heavy Topshop sandals. The sexiness of the shorts, plus the decidedly glam accessories, make it work.
43 of 68
Before you say, “What in the Lisa Frank heck is this?” and click past, hear us out: We love that Lily pulled from two ends of the style spectrum to create this ensemble. Her nude blouse, matching Matt Bernson flats and distressed jeans are as basic as they come, but her tie-dyed House of Holland moto jacket makes it all feel very fashion-y.
44 of 68
If shirt-tucking is an art (and we’d argue it is), then is a true artiste. She wears her silky white tank one-quarter in, three-quarters out of her paisley Intermix pants. Along with her Chinese Laundry heels, it’s the perfect way of keeping elastic-waist, drawstring bottoms out of PJ territory.
45 of 68
Stripes and florals are like that odd couple you thought would never get along, yet somehow they just work. Of course, it helps that Nina’s Sachin + Babi printed pieces have a tailored, sophisticated cut so she doesn’t look like a girl who was let loose at the fabric store.
46 of 68
We bet more than a few women who swore they’d never wear a jumpsuit are eating their words right now. The does her best to win over those onesie haters with a Dagmar design in a chic print. If you live in Brooklyn, feel free to add her Topshop bowler hat and House of Holland sunnies to the ensemble.

The proves it’s possible to wear tie-dye to work – and not just if you work at a music festival. The key is picking something in just two shades (no ROYGBIV, please), like Reese’s Tory Burch skirt, and pairing it with polished pieces similar to her white blouse and two-tone Chloé sandals.
49 of 68
If we’re being honest, what we love most about this look is not for sale: It’s hair. But what we love almost as much is the way she ties together her orange top and Parker pants with her accessories (yellow necklace, yellow Proenza Schouler cross-body, yellow-and-black Jimmy Choos.).

We know you have a pair of white skinnies sitting in your closet (or at least at the bottom of your laundry basket), so all that’s left to do is take a cue from the and slip them on with a flowy, floral top. Just leave it untucked in the back if you suffer from butt-in-white-jeans self-consciousness syndrome.

Wearing your jacket over your shoulders without your arms in the sleeves is pretty much the equivalent of wearing a name tag that says, “Hi! I’m a fashionista.” Olivia layers hers, a BCBG tuxedo blazer, over a chambray shirt and distressed AG Adriano Goldschmied skinnies to dress up the look. (The Tibi sandals and pyramid studded bag also help take the denim-on-denim out of casual land.)
52 of 68
We better schedule a date night because we just found the perfect outfit to wear for it. (Yes, that’s how our brains work.) The supermodel proves sweaters can be totally guy-hot in her navy ribbed mini. As for girl-hot, look no further than that amazing red Rebecca Minkoff bag.
53 of 68
Yes, jumpsuits are tricky to pull off. But Stacy’s L.A.M.B. design is one of the friendliest onesies we’ve seen in a while. It’s a good baby step toward the trend since it’s basic black, has a figure-flattering tie at the waist and looks perfect with nothing but flats and a fedora.
54 of 68
The supermodel’s white Dion Lee pencil skirt is perfect for a day-to-night transition thanks to the chic zipper down the front. (At work, keep it zipped and on your way out of the office, well, you know what to do.) Take a cue from Karolina and pair it with a casual contrasting top and coordinating heels.

We’re not afraid to admit that pics of the post-baby wardrobe (and body) make us just as excited as pics of Prince George. Especially when she wears attainable fall-ready pieces like this Ralph Lauren blazer, Zara blouse (a favorite of hers) and basic black trousers.
57 of 68
Heart print can look totally juvenile, but keeps her Burberry silk top looking positively posh by pairing it with dark jeans, camel boots and Cutler sunnies. (We heart the look almost as much as we heart Harper’s shoes, which look totally juvenile in a good way.)
58 of 68
Your new favorite transitional weekend uniform, brought to you by the reigning : high-waisted skinnies (your girlfriends will appreciate these even if the boys don’t), a comfy striped tank, a red sweater (hers is Autumn Cashmere) and comfy flats. The stripes still feel summery, but the shades say, “Bring on fall.”

It’s time to burn your bras in the name of fashion. (Kidding.) But if you’re looking to give your LBD a rest, get some double-stick tape and do as Cara D (and Olivia Wilde) did. She wears the plunging white Burberry suit with nada underneath.
61 of 68
It’s a fine line between boho-chic and “I just stole a sheet off a bed at a commune.” The lands on the right side of said line by wearing the hippie print on a relaxed (but not baggy) Staring at Stars jumpsuit that shows some cleavage and accessorizing with a Michael Kors satchel and studded Koolaburra sandals.
62 of 68
It’s what’s missing from look that makes the outfit: tights. She extends the life of a summery floral dress by adding a Rebecca Minkoff moto jacket, Isabel Marant studded cowboy booties and a cross-body in one of fall’s It shades. Zooey, are you paying attention?

gives us some fresh denim jacket inspo by teaming hers with a nautical Edith A. Miller maxi, a colorful Hèrmes scarf and black leather accessories.

Putting on this sleeveless black peek-a-boo dress with sheer panels and adding a woven clutch and two-tone sandals guarantees to turn you into the life of the party. Fine, we can’t promise that, but it worked on Katie and really, how could you not want to be the center of attention in this chic look?
65 of 68
We know that when sang, “I can’t change” at the VMAs, she was talking about more important things, but additionally, we’d kinda be fine with her never changing out of this cropped tee and pleated skirt with cool pyramid studs at the waist.
66 of 68
If Emma Roberts’s metallic skirt didn’t already convince you that pencil skirts don’t have to look straight out of a Mad Men episode, Olivia’s Clover Canyon one should do the trick. P.S. With a pattern that busy, adding a black tee (hers is Crippen) and monochromatic heels (hers are Jimmy Choo) is clutch.

Showing up to school in PJs used to be a recurring nightmare, but showing up to work in them is now a fully realized dream of ours. styles her black-and-white spotted bottoms with a leather bomber, black Chinese Laundry flats and a ladylike cross-body to make it clear she didn’t just roll out of bed.

It’s time to cheat on your denim vest. olive Jet by John Eshaya sleeveless topper is perfect for the summer-to-fall transition since it looks just as good with a floral mini as it does how she styled it: over a black top, ankle-zip jeans and cutout Jeffery Campbell boots.
