While catching a flight out of LA with husband Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel gave her new white Nike Dunk Sky Hi sneakers ($125) a sophisticated spin. How so? By pairing them with supersleek pieces, including a collarless gray coat and matching gray skinny J Brand jeans ($202). Jessica then completed her travel style with a creamy netted sweater, a black tote bag, and oversize sunglasses. Wedge sneakers have practically become a style staple, but what we love about Jessica's latest outfit is that she proved that sporty can indeed look polished — that is, with the right accoutrements. Next time you're heading out of town (or just taking a spin around the neighborhood), take a cue from Jessica's latest and try matching your sneakers with a more luxe-feeling coat and any other pieces that scream chic (think leather pants, silky blouses, and tweed jackets). To get her look, shop our editors' picks below — including Jessica's exact Nike sneakers.
For every gorgeous look we saw on the runway at NYFW, there was a chic pair of shoes to match. We saw an emerging sandal boot trend taking off at Helmut Lang, Jason Wu, and 3.1 Phillip Lim, as well as a bevy of smart menswear-inspired flats from Tommy Hilfiger and Thakoon. There was an array of ladylike pumps at Alice + Olivia, Proenza Schouler, and Carolina Herrera and tons of tough ankle boots at Belstaff and Altuzarra. We've rounded up our most-loved pairs for you to pore over now — click through to see our favorites from New York Fashion Week and stay tuned as we add more fabulous footwear from London, Milan, and Paris!
While sitting front row during London Fashion Week, Olivia Palermo proved her ongoing affinity for Tibi — twofold. The style pro worked her Tibi mesh sweater ($175, originally $250) into two standout looks! It's just further proof that this fashion star knows how to rework her closet — or in this case, the contents of her suitcase. At the Temperley London show (left), she mixed the prints in her knit with a zigzag miniskirt, then finished with a black-and-white Tibi blazer and red printed pumps for a funky take on the ladylike look. Prior to that, Olivia sported her Tibi sweater at Sass & Bide (right) with a more laid-back twist, donning a double-zip cape, Paige Premium skinny jeans ($199), and the same graphic heels for a sexy but casual approach. Now it's your turn — score Olivia's exact Tibi sweater at 30 percent off to channel some Palermo-inspired style for work, weekend, and beyond.
Christopher Bailey had us at the heart prints that dotted trench coats and dresses coming down the runway for Burberry Fall '13. It was a skilled nod to the label's heritage — coats, leather, pencil skirts — all served up with Bailey's modern interpretation: high-impact pieces that incite interest without ever losing sight of what women want to wear. In this lineup, we got more sweetness, but there was a slicker, tougher counter to all those hearts, too — texture took shape as studded gromets sewn into the fringe that covered leather skirts and handbags — and among the standouts, there were the luxe leopard-print coats begging to be scooped up by Kate Moss or Alexa Chung.
Windowpane prints and checker prints are among Spring's biggest trends.

Watch it all right here, and tell us what you think!
Unlike the usual pastel-bright ladylike fare we're used to, Erdem's Fall '13 collection showed off the designer's darker — sexier — side. And we couldn't have imagined a more beautiful kind of mood swing. Black prevailed as the collection's primary source of "color," with flashes of neon lavender, green, and blue to keep it from veering into all-out gothic territory. Let's call this a case of textural dark romance, built upon equal parts black lace, floating chiffon, and polka-dot details, with ostrich feathers punctuating the sheerest of layers. To add to the drama, day dresses were remade for evening, complete with Victorian-inspired collars and capes, while velvet floral appliqués stood in as a richer kind of embellishment. See how Erdem Moralioglu took his Fall '13 collection to the dark side, right this way.
Nicole Kidman, spotted at the Stoker UK premiere, redefined what it is to wear something right off the runway — having donned a L'Wren Scott Fall '13 creation that made its LFW debut only hours before. The Yves-Klein-blue formfitting sheath lent a more opulent flair to Kidman's standard sophisticated dress code, not just because of the color, but thanks to the gold sequined — and polka-dotted — high-neck collar.The Australian actress kept the same runway styling intact by pairing the look with oversize gold hoop Stroiloro earrings, a slightly messy updo, and woven gold pointy-toe pumps. Yes, she may have swapped out the peep-toe silhouette for something more covered-up and traded the gold cuff for a menswear-inspired watch, but the overall gilded statement was preserved. While we're impressed with just how quickly this dress made it from runway to red carpet, it also supplies us with even more proof of Kidman's loyalty to L'Wren Scott, as she has (thus far) worn her designs to numerous premieres and events, including the recent Producers Guild Awards.
Celebs took to the red carpet last night to celebrate the Writers Guild Awards (which spanned across both coasts), looking nothing short of chic in a range of gorgeous gowns and party-perfect dresses. In celebration of the outstanding achievements of the top movies and series in the past year, Jessica Chastain made her entrance on the West Coast red carpet wearing a blush Dior dress paired with Jimmy Choo heels; Amy Poehler stunned in an Hervé Leroux fitted sheath; while Lena Dunham held down the East Coast festivities in a printed Reed Krakoff creation. See every red carpet turn in the slideshow now.
It's the kind of craftsmanship that you would typically only expect of couture that came down the runway for Christopher Kane's Fall 2013 collection. It's what Kane does best — looks that surprise, entertain, draw you in, and differentiate this lineup. The Fall 2013 collection is jam-packed with thoughtful, playful, and whimsical details that feel artistic and bold but wearable. Sharp outerwear with bold pops of blue and luxe fur finishes were just the primer for the urban-feeling camo prints and tough-girl kilts and leather that unfolded next. But that wasn't even the half of it — Kane's vision seemed to be on overdrive as look after look launched something new and distinct from the one that came before it. The urban warrior was followed with a textured story, where dresses were sculpted in swirls and patterns, then something more like floral appliqué, until the show culminated in a confection so full and brimming with delicate, full-bodied embellishment that the garment itself seemed to be living.
