Fashionistas everywhere envy Rachel Bilson’s effortless street style and always-chic red carpet looks. With the release of her first clothing line, Edie Rose for DKNY Jeans, back in September we got a little closer to her style secrets — but now Rachel is helping out even more. The style star has teamed up with InStyle to write a monthly column in which she’ll answer readers’ fashion questions — and share her must-have items. “I can talk about fashion all day long, and I am an avid InStyle reader so the relationship seemed perfect!” Rachel says. “This column is the best homework assignment ever!” In the star’s first column, which will appear in InStyle‘s May issue, she gives advice on everything from how to wear scarves in warm weather, to how to pair a big bag with a cocktail frock. Rachel also talks about must-have flats, and includes affordable brands like Lela Rose from Payless. We can’t wait to see what she has to say each month! Check out InStyle‘s May issue– on newsstands this Friday, April 24 — for Rachel’s first column. And if you have a style question for her, submit it at Tell us: Will you read Rachel’s InStyle column?
