Love Her Outfit! Star Style to Steal
upcoming film is Wild, so we have to assume the daytime leopard print is a tribute to that. Slightly less wild: the classic accessories (pearl studs, a top handle Saint Laurent duffle and rich suede Manolo Blahnik pumps) and the $29.99 Talbot’s price tag.
Every week, we swear we won’t put another black jumpsuit in this gallery, and every week, we fail: Stars keep catching our eye in them and making them look totally fresh. Our latest fave? Jamie Chung’s Ann Taylor tuxedo style, which she wore to a Changemakers dinner hosted by the line. A wine lip and slightly edgy accessories were the perfect finishing touches, including Capwell + Co earrings.
is having a serious animal-print moment. We already made the Wild joke, so we’ll just talk about why this outfit works: Classic shapes, clean lines, and a few surprising twists – like the double-dose of leopard and that chunky padlock bracelet.
We know you don’t have a ton of places to wear your wool bustier and wide-leg trousers, but if the opportunity should arise, be sure to style them as Olivia does here. Her dramatic, fabulous duster coat and perfectly-chosen accessories, like her structured ink-blue bag and classic tan kitten heels, give the whole outfit a look that’s at once retro and very fresh.
How to make that plaid skirt look less schoolgirl-ish? Nicky does it quite nicely, thanks to her iiJin zippered moto and pointy suede boots – balanced with a classic bag, clean face and smooth locks.
A great camel coat goes with anything (just ask Kim Kardashian). But we especially like the way styled hers: with a classic leather skirt and white tee. She kept her accessories simple, but you could swap in something a little sparklier if you wanted to make this more holiday-ready.
Staring down those over-the-knee boots in your closet and wondering how to style them? Why not try Ashley’s take (seen on her blog) this weekend? It’s another outfit that manages to be head-snappingly sexy without revealing a thing.
We’re used to seeing her in next-to-nothing, so we did a double take when we heard that the supermodel was sporting a turtleneck, sequined skirt (by Emilio Pucci) and plain pumps. And our takeaway, once we saw the photos? Sexy isn’t an outfit, it’s a state of mind (and she’s got it).
Sure, we may not be stepping out of the house wearing an Elie Saab dress, Louboutin flats and a Dior handbag on the regular, but when we do put our (lower-priced) version of Emmy’s look together, you can bet we’re also adding tights and gloves.
What’s the work-appropriate version of jeans and a tee? Leave it to the ever-casual to figure it out: A cozy, not-too-snug pencil skirt, soft sweater and luxe leather boots. A messy braid and bright pink lip gives a little more “oomph” to an otherwise very basic ensemble.
“I’m going to pair an orange coat with a green sweater, maroon accessories and a bright red hat,” thought no one ever. Then they saw cute outfit (including knee-high boots from & Other Stories and Hudson jeans) and immediately gave that look another thought.
If you’re lucky enough to live in an area where the temps don’t drop below 50 degrees, you can “winterize” your wardrobe just by throwing a leather moto jacket over your favorite printed dress and adding a cool pair of pumps, like Bella does here.
Sure, she’s wearing a slew of super-pricey designer pieces (Alexander McQueen python biker jacket, Balenciaga bag, Prada shades and Ash sneakers), but other half still manages to look casual and effortlessly cool.
As we descend into the winter months, let this photo of Jamie remind you that it’s entirely possible to look cute even when it’s crazy-cold outside. Go for an on-trend voluminous wool coat on top, leather skinnies on the bottom and add a statement accessory like an oversize blanket scarf (hers is by Vince).
Wearing a black turtleneck with a dark skirt and tights can make you look like a mime. But add a camel-colored coat and a bold fuchsia lip like Allison, and you’ve got an ensemble that’s anything but mute.
You wouldn’t think that a leopard-print scarf would pair so well with a striped blazer, but Kate proves just that with this look, which she tops off with a structured Saint Laurent python-embossed bag.
The has been slaying us all season with her enviable ensembles and this one is no exception. In fact, we’re asking Santa for everything she’s wearing and we even linked to each item for his online shopping convenience: Kenzo leopard print scarf, Sandro hooded coat with fur trim, Frame “Le Skinny, Saint Laurent booties and don’t forget the Ray-Ban Wayfarer shades.
Coats aren’t usually the showstopper piece in an outfit, which is why it can be tricky to know what to wear with a topper that demands all the attention. But Hailee shows exactly how to tackle the task, by going mostly monotone (she tops a black and white dress with her polka-dot coat) and adding a few subtle but chic accessories, like her tri-tone bag and Jimmy Choo heels. The pink-red lip ensures attention stays on her face, not her outerwear.
There’s a fine line between daring and dated when it comes to rocking vintage-style clothing, and in the hands of a mere mortal, acid-washed jeans could go horribly wrong. But successfully balances her throwback bottoms with a casual tee and an embellished leather jacket. Keeping things very 2014: Sky-high Azzedine Alaïa booties, a fur-clad Dee Ocleppo bag and a berry lip.
No, we’re not suggesting you shave your head and/or dye your hair purple. What we are suggesting is that any do will do with a clothing combo as festive and feminine as Kelly’s here. A modest hem gives a figure-hugging pencil silhouette (like her glimmering Alice + Olivia skirt) a ladylike feel, and a jet-black top and leather jacket toughens up the sequins.
We rarely wear our plaid button-downs with anything besides dark skinnies. But gives the boyish shirt some feminine flair by complementing her goop x Band of Outsiders top with a flared skirt. A vibrant Valentino purse and metallic-accented Saint Laurent shades punctuate the ladylike vibe.
The new Mrs. George Clooney is wearing this Dolce & Gabbana dress (plus a patent tote and suede booties) to the airport. Seeing as you are not married to , feel free to continue to wear jeans and a hoodie to the airport, and save this outfit for a really fun office party.
Red and black: A classic – but expected – holiday color combo. Why not mix things up (just a little) by pairing glossy red and navy instead? The star shines in a striped MaxMara top tucked into a high-slit navy skirt, then adds some very retro touches (a Longchamp coat, Stuart Weitzman heels and structured Kate Spade New York bag) for a super-polished finish.
Head-to-toe neutral tones can be super-snoozy, unless you take a cue from Kendall. She plays with texture to make her outfit pop, balancing her ribbed beige sweater with tan suede Theory pants, then keeps her accessories sleek (and lust worthy) with a mini bag and pointed white pumps.
And you can step outside of your LBD box before the holidays, too: Try a ladylike look in royal blue, as did. The color of this Mugler piece is also classic, but the plunging neckline – and her studded Christian Louboutin pumps – gives it some sex appeal.
What are you wearing to all your holiday parties? A sparkly black dress? C’mon, you can do better than that. How about a pretty two-piece pants look like Ashley’s Elie Saab? The color is festive, but not overly so, thanks to the see-through paneling – and the star’s decision to keep her makeup minimal.
Distressed denim definitely has a rugged vibe, but Nikki demonstrates how a little accessorizing can upgrade the look of your jeans by pairing her Gap pair with no less than three chic pieces: a fitted navy AllSaints coat, chain-link pocket book and pointy boots.
Cozy sweaters: Soft and sweet. Leather pants: Pretty badass. Put the two together like Jamie did (her sweater is J Brand’s “Kasia” style, and her teal coat is Rebecca Minkoff) and you’ve nailed the best day-to-night combo of the season. Freezing out? Swap in warmer booties.
We’re going to keep telling you until you believe us: You can totally wear white well into fall – and not just winter white, either. tops her fresh white Black Halo dress with a leather jacket (which adds a coolness to the outfit, plus much needed warmth) and a boyish bag. You could even add tights to further “winterize” the ensemble.
If the thought of wearing three prints at once makes you run screaming for the nearest LBD, allow to demonstrate how easy the look can be. Keeping pieces in the same color family is the key (from her Comptoir des Cotonniers jacket to her pumps, she wears a head-to-toe medley of purple, blue and white). And when it comes to accessories, the simpler, the better.
Ah, the cape-and-hat combo. So warm, but so dangerously close to cowboy territory. While Western wears are on trend this season, you’ll want to balance pieces with modern solids like Rosie’s textured Zadig & Voltaire sweater and green leather pants from The Row (a fresh departure from black).
JENNIFER MORRISON & JAMIE CHUNG
Were you about to put away all your whites for the winter? Stop! The color has major staying power (proven by Jamie and Jennifer) as long as it’s made to look seasonally appropriate. The process is two-step: 1. contrast your ensemble with black accessories to add a touch of toughness, and 2: complete the look with a dark pout. The richer and deeper the hue, the more fall-ready you’ll be.
Yes, Diane is wearing our favorite fall trend, over-the-knee boots. Yes, she is also wearing a very pretty textured sweater dress. And yes, she’s carrying the cutest mini Chanel purse on the planet. Those three things combined, plus the fact that it’s Diane Kruger, make for well, the best outfit ever.
Leave it to Olivia to make us use words like cool and waaant when describing black pants and a white top. How? By styling the classic pieces with killer accessories: multicolor shades, a black fringe bag and red flats that feature both an animal print and studs. Throwing on a non-basic coat (hers is an oversize, two-tone wool Inhabit topper) adds to the visual appeal.
Your favorite night-out leather skirt is about to see the daylight, and you have outfit inspiration to thank. She picks a warm gray skirt that works with a patterned top (hers is Rails) – which gives her a low-key, sporty vibe. However, the center slit offers a sliver of sex appeal, thanks especially to that bare-leg-and-bootie thing she’s rocking.
It’s the dilemma many a fashionista is facing this fall: If the crop top trend is here to stay, how does one make it seasonally appropriate? Follow Lupita’s steps: 1. Pick a long-sleeve version in a hue that conjures up a feeling of autumn leaves. 2. Accessorize the look with a mix of rich tones. 3. Swipe on a berry lip. When all else fails, that’s a surefire way to say “fall.”
We’ll admit, the on-point red lip may have a lot to do with why we love this look so much. But perfect pout aside, Ashley teaches us that jumpsuits can be totally chic if you pick a sleek design (hers is Thakoon), pair it with a fuss-free T-shirt and pop on some strappy sandals.
