Today we're taking a cue from Chanel's Spring runway and scattering loose pearls on a pretty white blouse. This is an easy update that will lend a ladylike feel to a top you already have in your wardrobe. Watch on to see how it's done, and start transforming your blouse today! On Allison McNamara: BCBG Max Azria blazer, Diane von Furstenberg top, DIY necklace.
A color story doesn't need to be overtly bright or multifaceted to be a good one — case in point: Zoe Saldana and Candice Swanepoel both turned heads in just one head-to-toe hue. Their looks have more than a sleek monochromatic color scheme in common: both Zoe and Candice also relied on slim cropped trousers and easy long-sleeved tops. The effect? Simple, minimalist silhouettes made the tonal play of both outfits the main event. Your road map — and shopping guide — to channeling the same ultrachic monochrome styles is right here:
- Choose the best tone for your body type. If you're curvier, stick to a darker palette, like Zoe's deep blue or even black and gray. A bright white palette is going to be the least forgiving. However, if you're long and lean, choosing all white or creamy pastel hues can help create curves in body-skimming cuts.
- Look to texture to add interest. Both Zoe and Candice's ensembles are more elevated than pants and t-shirts in the same color family. That's because each looked to different fabrics to help create a more styled mix. Zoe relied on leather pants; Candice juxtaposed the polished feel of her high-waisted trousers with a knit sweatshirt. In both cases, the colors remained the same, but the addition of a sheer blouse, leather pants, or knit top can quickly change the feel of the whole outfit.
- It's all about proportion. You don't have to choose trousers and tops, à la Candice and Zoe, but don't veer too much from their style-setting formula. The trick to making the monochromatic look feel deliberate and chic is in choosing pieces that skim the body and feel more dressed up than your basic jeans. Get the same effect with a fitted pencil skirt and slouchy sweater or sleeveless blouse and cropped pants — just be sure to steer clear of looser, wide-leg pants or overly baggy tops that won't speak to that same polished sensibility. And, whenever in doubt, opt for the same understated, sophisticated footwear like Candice's ankle-straps or Zoe's nude heels that won't upstage your outfit.
Diane Kruger kicked off the promo tour with a book signing in LA for her new movie, The Host, where she stars alongside Max Irons and Jake Abel. We love seeing Diane on the red carpet, and lucky for us, this movie means we'll be seeing a whole lot of red-carpet style from the German actress. Showing off her svelte frame, Diane chose a look consisting of a Carven crop top and a Vanessa Bruno red leather skirt. This is just the first of the style setter's promotional looks, so stay tuned as we document all of Diane's red carpet cameos! On Allison McNamara: BCBG Max Azria jacket, Zara blouse, Club Monaco pants, Kenneth Jay Lane earrings.
Along with the retailer's Coachella-ready Divided wares, H&M is launching The New Icons, a collection inspired by its campaign models, Joan Smalls, Liu Wen, Lindsey Wixson, and Daphne Groeneveld. And, as you may have guessed by the source of inspiration, the clothes prove just as cool as the ladies wearing them. With a rocker edge that reminds us of Givenchy-meets-Joan-Jett appeal, and a romantic Americana slant that's more Ralph Lauren in the '90s, the latest batch of H&M clothes offers up an easy "road map" for emulating a similar brand of cool-girl styling. We're particularly drawn to the silver-embellished black vest, cream-colored ruffle lace miniskirt, and the drawstring bucket bag both Smalls and Wixson show off in the campaign. Here's your first look at The New Icons collection — available in stores in early April — right this way.
There's no such thing as an "off" day with Jessica Alba, and her latest book-signing outfit serves as proof. Her black Fendi top and printed ankle-cropped trousers, also by Fendi, supplied us with a look that's equal parts subtle and high impact. Meanwhile, her blue Elizabeth and James Stella pumps provided a trifecta of color, texture, and metallic sheen. Consider this a perfectly chic — and dynamic — antidote to the average black pantsuit option, courtesy of the updated colorblocked print, tailored silhouette, and sophisticated shoe choice. Of course, if you need to inject another layer of polish, a fitted blazer should do the trick. The best part? These three pieces are versatile styling tools that go way beyond the 9-to-5 grind. The monochromatic blouse can be tucked into a high-waisted skirt for cocktail hour; the pants can be worn with a relaxed t-shirt and flat patent oxfords for a cheekier laid-back edge; and the heels will provide the finishing touch on a flirtier Spring shiftdress ensemble. Now, all you have to do is shop the essentials below.Shop clockwise from top left: Mango Metal Fastening Blouse ($40), AllSaints Masson Collarless Blazer ($378), Ottoman Hands Drop Stone Earrings ($71), House of Harlow 1960 Blackened Metal Arrowhead Cocktail Ring ($84), Yasuko Azuma Four Bezel Ring ($450), Elizabeth and James Blue Suede Clark Pump ($148, originally $295), Topshop Unique Silk Devoree Trousers ($300)
