Sure, she looked amazing wearing very little (or nothing) in Wolf of Wall Street, but let’s take a moment to acknowledge how good Margot looks with clothes on. She nails it in a simple white Rag & Bone mini, the perfect dress when you’re also wearing such a busy printed Giambattista Valli topper and coordinating patent Sophia Webster pumps.
Fine! We admit it: We included this photo just so we’d have an excuse to keep staring at those two-tone heels with wings (and her crazy-long legs). The Vampire Diaries actress smartly lets her stems and that pop of color at the end of them take center stage, adding nothing but simple black and white separates.
Welp, the has officially shamed all of our “just running errands” outfits with this look. Instead of jeans and a sweatshirt, she opts for leather skinnies, a structured blazer and a woven Bottega Veneta bag. Sneaks and a relaxed-fit gray tee keep the ensemble from seeming too try-hard in an “I dressed like this for the paparazzi” way.
Some crop tops make us feel like we should go on a 14-day juice cleanse. This Proenza Schouler one, paired with a printed skirt also by the designers, shows just a sliver of skin, making a mere three-day cleanse seem sufficient. throws on T-strap Saint Laurent heels to lend a retro vibe to the modern look.
We predicted white pumps wouldn’t go anywhere anytime soon and proves us right. If you’re wondering how to work the footwear trend, do exactly as she does: Throw on a feminine pencil skirt and low-cut white tee, then add a badass leather bomber to toughen up the ensemble.
The term “shrunken jumpsuit” is enough to send us running, but we’re willing to give it a try after seeing how sports this Parker one. An almost-all-black version helps it avoid feeling costume-y or childish, and minimal accessories (pink heels and a quilted white Chanel purse) keep this from looking like a trend tornado.
We swear this girl could make a paper bag look chic. But more importantly, she can make a basic button-down (hers is American Eagle) and jeans look chic. The Celeb Style Council member does so by picking a pair of Paige skinnies with on-trend double-zipper pockets and adding a leopard clutch, proving it’s all in the details.
This isn’t your school uniform plaid skirt. For one, you don’t have to wear it with knee socks and an oversize polo. Instead, use the as your preppy style guide, and pair the mini with tights, a simple knit top and marigold flats (hers are Charlotte Olympia).
This amazing coat almost makes us hope temperatures stay low. Almost. The Girls star goes for an understated sexy vibe by teaming the gray wool topper (featuring a pretty, contrasting lemon liner) with a simple Christian Dior mini and nude Louboutins.
Over in sunny Southern California, tights clearly aren’t needed. But we’re imagining the zipper-embellished leather mini and printed button-down with some opaques and over-the-knee boots. And we’re imagining it for that date we have this weekend.
We can’t decide if we want to wear fur shawl, or lay down and take a nap on it. Either way, it looks warm and is a chic alternative to the ubiquitous furry vest. It looks great with the rest of her outfit (though, really, what doesn’t look good with leather skinnies and a studded Valentino bag?).
There’s one bad thing and only one bad thing about the lace, one-sleeve Emilio Pucci jumpsuit: Now that she’s worn it, no other star can wear it to an awards show. (But, hey, you’re welcome to the $4,699 onesie.)
The actress looks so polished and put-together in this navy-and-red checked mini and camel coat ensemble (even her pretzel looks cute!) that it’s hard to believe it’s her real-life attire and not her wardrobe for a movie.
Her ice rink-sized ring isn’t the only thing we’re coveting. The newly engaged actress upgrades her white tank and jeans with a killer cropped leather jacket and chocolate brown suede knee-high boots.
We used to feel weird for style-stalking a 14-year-old. But with looks like this black top, flouncy printed skirt, black booties and delicate bow necklace, that feeling is a distant memory.
Our credit card can blame Julianne for the camel coat we just had to buy after seeing her in the topper. Now we have our eye on a pair of those Rachel Zoe leather pants with buckles at the ankle.
Spoiler alert: Half the people at the New Year’s Eve party you go to will be wearing some form of gold or silver. But you can be the only one wearing the much-less-ubiquitous metallic blush. introduces us to the shade with her Kate Spade skirt and coordinating sweatshirt-style top, accessorized with matching heels and a patent Jimmy Choo clutch.
Note to self: Next time wearing anything but black leggings and a plain black top seems out of the question, take a cue from this . She adds two pieces that instantly elevate the basic outfit: over-the-knee cognac Chanel boots and a gray fur vest. (Balenciaga bag and aviators encouraged, but not required.)
The Wolf of Wall Street actress just gave us a new New Year’s resolution: Be bolder with our print mixing. She pairs a stunning animal-print coat with a black-and-white gingham sheath for a look that’s sexy-meets-sophisticated (just how we like our outfits).
And this, people, is why you shouldn’t judge an item by how it looks on the hanger. If we’d seen baroque floral Minkpink sweatshirt on its own in a store, we probably would have passed. But with a pleated leather mini, knee-high boots, a collared shirt and a structured teal handbag, we’re totally sold on the out-there top.
There is nothing we don’t like about this look: The asymmetrical-hemline fur vest from Calypso St. Barth is gorgeous. The cuffed Frame jeans are the perfect wash and fit. Those Isabel Marant boots are classic with a moss-green twist. And those Ray-ban aviators are just the right finishing touch. Correction: There’s one thing we don’t like about this look. That it’s not in our closet.
Yesss. Another way to make a cozy sweatshirt feel totally un-schlumpy. By wearing it over a black collared shirt, with leather J Brand stovepipes and topped off with patent Oxfords and a structured bag.
Has someone been binge-watching Scandal? pulls an Olivia Pope and wears head-to-toe white (an embellished-collar button-down tucked into wide-leg pants and a matching belt) with total disregard for what might stain it (red wine). And we love how her camel clutch adds a pop of, er, neutral.
You know how some people wear a leather moto jacket and tone it down with ladylike pieces? Rita is not those people. She poses for a DKNY ad and proves she’s got more than enough edge to pull off the the badass topper with a black skinnies featuring leather thigh-panels, a chain choker and killer heels.
Excuse us while we break out our scissors and cut the sleeves off our white blazers. Or maybe we should just buy an actual vest and wear it as Olivia does, over all-black and with bright accessories (like her printed Stuart Weitzman envelope clutch and multicolor heels).
We love a sweater that feels Christmas-y, but isn’t plastered with Rudolf’s face. But the real reason we chose this look: the accessories. pointy-toe platform boots and perforated satchel just skyrocketed to the top of our wish lists. (We’ll take those 7 for all Mankind jeans too, Santa.)
Most of the equations we learned in high school, we’ve long forgotten, but here’s one we still remember and refer to every December: a sparkly metallic A-line mini + a black top + tights + boots = an instant holiday party outfit. Extra credit for throwing in big bouncy curls.
If you don’t own a pair of suede ankle booties and an AllSaints moto jacket yet, stop reading, order both online then come back. Okay, now that you’ve taken care of that, here’s an idea of how to style your new purchases: with printed ankle pants and a cozy tee. It’s just the right mix of laid-back and edgy.
Don’t tell our jeans we said this, but leather skinnies are our new favorite pants. Keep them feeling on-trend, not trendy by wearing them with a simple top ( green-and-black plaid one is Equipment) and classic heels (hers are cap-toe Choos).
For those who live where it’s warm enough to go outside without long underwear under your jeans, take advantage of those temps in a ballerina midi (more sophisticated than a tutu, not as costume-y as the maxi version), a button-down and neutral accessories ( shoes are Chloé and her satchel is The Cambridge Satchel Company).
No, you haven’t accidentally clicked over to the “Love Her Hair! (though this photo belongs there); we’re also loving party-perfect Dsquared full skirt and silk top, which need nothing but a pair of metallic-accented heels to hit the town.
Two rules for wearing all black: Play with textures ( selects a boxy ribbed Helmut Lang sweater) and opt for at least one formfitting piece (see: her leather Rag & Bone pants). Pop of color via green juice encouraged, but not required.
Looking for someone to give you the go-ahead to splurge on these totally impractical neon heels even though it’s winter? Your rational friend won’t, but we gladly will. Come on, just look at how awesome they go with jeans and a white blazer.
