Gwen Stefani's never been one to shy away from a fashion challenge, and this look is no different. She streamlined the getting-dressed process by doing the adult version of a onesie, picking a denim jumpsuit from Hatch (available to shop here) that she covered up with a long black Smythe tuxedo jacket. For shoes, she picked black ankle boots from AllSaints with a menswear-inspired tassel. It was her other accessories that pushed the envelope more — she opted for blue-lensed sunglasses and a tartan chain-strap bag from Vivienne Westwood. It's a lot of look to pull off together, but Gwen makes for a mighty good inspiration. Shop it all here.
The sensible dresser would balk at this outfit written down: neon with print with bright blue with a textured coat? It gives you vertigo just typing the words. Still, when we saw it all paired together on fashion editor J.J. Martin, we were pleasantly surprised. The neon acted as a neutral tucked into a statement pencil skirt, and a pale topper kept the overall effect light and bright (unlike a black or navy coat, which would've quickly weighed the whole thing down). She didn't play it safe with her accessories, either, using them to add extra bright doses. Instead of picking somber colors, it was vivid blue and cranberry for her bag and fur scarf, respectively. And the pumps, while nude, felt special thanks to a studded ankle strap. Want to re-create the entire look (or select pieces)? We've shopped it out below.
Celebrity off-duty style is never more inspiring than when it's an outfit composed of shoppable, affordable pieces. Jamie Chung proved the point perfectly, stepping out recently in a black and white leopard coat that's available right now from Ann Taylor — and rings in at a not-too-painful $278. Her accessories are wallet-friendly, too, including a leather baseball cap from ASOS ($32, originally $43) and embellished Call It Spring combat boots ($80). The rest of her look (leather-like leggings and a bold backpack) are also easy to find at bank-account-pleasing prices. Steal not just her style, but the exact same pieces, by shopping here.
Jennifer Garner's simple but preppy style has won her a legion of fans — including us. Her latest look combined a black pencil skirt with a denim top, making for an outfit that would work at the office or on a weekend shopping trip. We're making it extra easy to shop with similar finds, all available below. On Leah: Banana Republic top; on Allie: Club Monaco dress
We'd follow Jennifer Lawrence's lead when it comes to most things, but particularly if we wanted to look this cool at any of our upcoming holiday cocktail parties. For her appearance on Late Show with David Letterman, the Catching Fire star traded jaw-dropping red carpet fare for a sophisticated-cum-edgy look that's a lot easier (and not quite as revealing) to outfit on our own. Just start with a sleek black pencil skirt and a lacy black top — a leather biker jacket will supply the edge, no chopped haircut necessary. As for the rest, you'll want to keep it simple: elegant black and white heels won't compete with the rest of the outfit, and a pair of geometric earrings will add just enough spunk. Shop your way to the coolest look in the room with our editors' picks below.
Model-off-duty, be damned — Cara Delevingne was out and about in New York City yesterday in a slouchy look that we've come to expect more from the likes of Justin Bieber. The model was headed to a Kanye West concert, an event that somewhat explained her casual choices. If you're in love with the easy look, then you'll be happy to know it's a cinch to re-create: her sweatshirt is from Chloë Sevigny's latest Opening Ceremony collaboration, the jacket's from Rihanna's River Island foray, and her sunnies are from Australian brand Quay Eyeware. She finished the whole thing with Timberland boots. Whether Yeezus is on your agenda or you're just craving something comfortable, shop our picks here.
If you've been mourning the end of fur vest season, Olivia Palermo has a trick that might be the fix you've been looking for. She stepped out at a Furla party in Japan wearing an Ashley B jacket that mixed two of our favorite chilly-weather pieces — a fur vest and a sleek leather jacket. On their own, both pieces aren't quite warm enough to combat early Winter weather, but paired together? It's a different story. Olivia's not the first to land on the doubled-up look, either; see which celebs beat her to the punch.
Spotting a star in a perfectly styled leather jacket is nothing new — we have seven different options to inspire your own dressing right here. Fashion star Miranda Kerr took it one step further, giving the classic black pick the day off in favor of a bold tritone Acne version.
With a statement topper like hers, it's smart styling sense to keep the rest of the outfit simple. Miranda let hers take center stage by wearing dark Citizens of Humanity jeans, a scarf, and pointy-toe ankle booties. The one other twist came courtesy of the denim shirt she knotted at her waist. Love the look? Shop it all here.
She's not just one of our favorite funny ladies — Rashida Jones has some pretty serious styling chops, too. The actress celebrated her collaboration with Dannijo (hitting stores Nov. 18!) with a private dinner in West Hollywood — and a killer play on black and blue. She added a pop of bright cobalt to an easy Everlane sweater for a laid-back twist on party-season dressing. Of course, the real kicker are those heels — a standout pair of leopard-print pumps that would make any outfit. Feeling inspired? Let's go shopping!
Who says you have to wear heels with your cocktail dresses? Definitely not Alexa Chung, who stepped out in London last night in a sweet black fit-and-flare number and a pair of adorable Charlotte Olympia cat-face slippers. It's a more modern approach to the usual cocktail fare, one that's totally charming — and a lot more comfortable. The added bonus? It doesn't take much to re-create — in fact, you're just three pieces away from getting the same adorable look. Shop them all below!
