Star Looks for Less!
We were already planning to live in black skinnies and a boyfriend button-up this fall, but thanks to Nikki’s chic outfit, we’ll also be pairing the pieces with a serious statement necklace (hers is BaubleBar) and sexy leopard-print pumps (like her Brian Atwood pair). Also love that slim Gorjana belt!
made style bloggers swoon when she hit New York Fashion Week in this killer combo: a pink Calvin Klein Collection dress with can’t-miss yellow Roger Vivier sandals.
Calf-length plaid skirts are a school uniform staple, but convinces us that they can look surprisingly cool. She avoids kilt territory by teaming the colorful piece with a tough black leather jacket and sexy T-strap heels (all by Ralph Lauren Collection).
THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE
retro-inspired Jonathan Saunders teal-and-green print sheath, which she accessorizes with nude pumps and a clutch, translates easily to fall with the addition of a black blazer and ankle booties. Pillbox hat optional.
Though we usually find the look for less, sometimes the stars make our jobs easier and rock affordable red carpet garb. The younger Olsen dons a $155 ASOS leather pencil skirt, along with a simple black top, a white blazer and black sandals.
The bucks tradition and welcomes fall with a beautiful lemon-hued floral sheath, which color coordinates with her House of Lavande Vintage drop earrings. She makes it work by adding shoes in an autumnal shade rather than wearing pale strappy sandals and rocking a polished hairdo instead of beachy waves.
Thank you, , for giving us a fresh way of wearing our favorite black J Brand skinnies. She dresses hers up with a chic white blazer, glam gold-chain Tom Ford heels and sleek strands.
The younger combines two of our favorite things about fall – cool coats and killer boots – with an electric blue frock and a sexy leopard clutch.
Nautical stripes are officially out of season. But take on the pattern (broad black-and-white stripes), plus the Dolce & Gabbana dress’s ladylike silhouette, make this number decidedly fall-appropriate. Just add tights and a black blazer when the temperature drops.
No one could accuse the young star of looking boring in her black-and-white outfit, thanks to the deep-V neckline of her silky top (we hope she invested in fashion tape!), her flouncy mini and her patent peep-toes.
The last time we wore neon and sequins together was at our third grade jazz recital, but Lucy inspires us to give the flashy combo another chance. The pairing works because Lucy chooses a neutral(ish) color for her sequined French Connection shorts and offsets the lime Naven blazer with a simple white tee, pretty Lulu Guinness bag and basic nude ShoeMint pumps.
After seeing in this lemon-colored lace dress (worn with a Kate Spade New York bag), we’re not sure how we’ve survived so long without one just like it. After all, it makes the absolute perfect bridal or baby shower dress.
He-llo, jacket weather! We plan to ease into topper season with a transitional coat like fitted taupe Roland Mouret one. It adds just the right amount of polish to an edgy all-black ensemble of a V-neck, leather leggings, Sethi Couture hoops and Brian Atwood heels, plus you can wear it as a blazer around the office.
SARAH JESSICA PARKER
It’s been so long since we’ve seen in a super-tight, super-short dress and totally funky accessories that we almost forgot the star had it in her! We’re loving her printed teal Diane von Furstenberg mini, which she punctuates with yellow-and-gold pumps, a killer cuff and a studded bag.
Maria makes a bold choice by teaming red pants with a color-block blazer, a printed blouse and nude heels – but pulls it off. It’s all about sticking to just one shade color and avoiding a loud print.

If it’s good enough for Kanye, it’s good enough for us! balances her oversize peplum top with a sleek leather mini and minimalist ankle-strap heels.
We probably own a version of all the items is wearing, but now we know how to wear them together. She rocks A.L.C. black trousers and a matching top with pointy yellow pumps and denim vest.
Hello, Jackie O 2.0! The shows off her killer curves in a skintight orange Roland Mouret sheath but keeps the look lunchtime-appropriate with a demure blue cardigan, ladylike bag and nude pumps.

You may be on the fence about wearing white jeans post-summer, but red ones are a year-round staple. Just check out how put-together Serena looks in her pair, which she teams with a white T-shirt and black blazer.
