While football fanatics were focused on the fouls and scores at yesterday's Super Bowl, our eyes were peeled on Madonna's halftime-show outfit. Her black-and-gold Givenchy dress was an obvious showstopper, and the gold pompoms fed into her over-the-top performance. While this look was just right on stage, it would look too contrived on the sidewalks. But with just a few tweaks and additions, we can easily bring Madonna's stage ensemble to the streets. Start with a basic black tee, then jazz it up with a gold spiked necklace. Go simple with one strand of spikes, or go all out with a handful. Then for your bottoms, play around with a bouncy skirt like Madonna's, black skinny jeans for something more streamlined, a red leather skirt for a wowing effect, or boyfriend jeans to achieve an edgy casual vibe. Shop endless options below.

What's amazing about polka dots is that they're super malleable; they can be playful and lighthearted when they want to be, then on the flip side, they can also be badass, like how Australian actress Rachael Taylor wore her Topshop skirt in Sydney recently. What took this polka-dot pencil skirt to cool places is Rachael's smart styling. Instead of mixing too many colors, the actress opted to keep things edgy with a black ribbed sweater, black oxford booties, and a black leather satchel. For a sassier feel, she could have worn her dotted skirt with a strapless, sweetheart corset top and black patent pumps. If you don't yet have a polka-dot pencil skirt in your wardrobe, be sure to add this one to the mix because it's affordable and can go from work to play in a snap.
Thanks in large part to this fashionable set of celebs, we've taken notice of a new way to layer up. This crew proves that the only thing cooler than a leather jacket may just be one topped with a furry vest. The two luxe finishes play off each other with perfect street-chic style quality — one that's just as easy to finish with jeans and sneakers as it is to style up with slick bottoms and heels. Kate Moss, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Poppy Delevigne show off the look's casual capabilities, while Olivia Palermo and Mary-Kate Olsen outfit two dressier versions. Take a moment to study the celebrity gang, then read on to get our styling tips as we take the look from day to night.

If your basics are starting to look a little worse for wear, check out Gap's new collection, Gap Pure, which just launched today in stores (and online last night). Not only is the line affordable — prices range from $24 for a tee to $68 for a sweater — but the quality is also spot-on, highlighting jersey, pima cotton, and cashmere. In fact, we spoke to the designer and was told that each piece goes through a rigorous pilling test. We love the slouchy-cum-cool fit, perfect for lounging around, or if you want to up your style profile, layering with leather skirts and skinny trousers. See and shop our top picks in the slideshow now.
No matter where in the world Amber Heard is strolling, she always stands out with her uniquely fashion-forward taste. Her latest sighting at The Grove in LA proves that she's a master at the art of layering. It also solidifies the fact that she's obsessed with mid-calf skirts. This time, Amber layered a black ruffle-neck dress over a sheer white skirt and topped it all off with a super-luxe camel coat by Boss Black. For accessories, the actress carried a Stella McCartney bag and wore ankle-strap wedges on her feet. While this ensemble isn't the easiest one to re-create, it should inspire you to be fearless, like Amber, when it comes to layering unexpected pieces.
