Thanks to Diane Kruger's latest travel ensemble, today's outfit is right here. Her winning mix of prints started with a navy-and-white Diane von Furstenberg "Paulette" studded blazer, then quickly moved into full-on striped boyfriend jeans territory. A black tank and Ray-Ban aviators kept things casual and cool, but it was her white add-ons — a fedora, Rochas bag, and clear cap-toe Christian Louboutin flats — that packed a punch. No matter where today takes you, look to Diane for an extra dose of what-to-wear inspiration. And to take this look from day to night, lose the fedora and sunglasses and add high heels, a colored lip, and gorgeous waves. Shop our editors' picks below to get the party started.

Sneak a Peek at Diane von Furstenberg's New Collection For GapKids and BabyGap Before It Hits Stores!
Diane von Furstenberg is at it again . . . and we couldn't be happier! As announced last month, the iconic designer is lending her hand to a second collection for GapKids and BabyGap that will hit store shelves (it will be available at GapKids, BabyGap, and DVF stores, as well as online) on April 25, and based on this sneak peek, it's bound to fly off store shelves.
This year's theme, Explorers, is filled with African-inspired prints and wild-animal illustrations all meant to express girls' natural desire to discover the world around them. Of course, the capsule collection includes the iconic DVF wrap dress — though it is reworked into a shorts romper to be a bit more child-friendly — as well as printed skinny jeans, rompers, tees, swimwear, shirtdresses, leggings, lace-up espadrilles, sunhats, and more. Expect to see plenty of safari-themed and hibiscus bud graphics, the DVF signature heart, and some Gap/DVF graffiti on the various pieces.
The first collaboration, which featured the DVF Loves GapKids theme, was an instant hit with parents and kids alike, so click through our first look at the collection, and start making your shopping lists now!
