Lauren Conrad has been hitting a fashion home run while promoting her new book, The Fame Game, and during a recent trip to NYC, she kept her chic streak going by pairing a tribal Tibi blouse with a chiffon Paper Crown skirt. She completed her polished city style with nude Casadei pumps, a matching Chanel bag, and black oversized square shades, then pulled her signature locks into a loose braid for a romantic feel. Pair Lauren's exact skirt with her Tibi tank in a blue hue, or style the printed tank with white skinnies and neon sandals for a more casual take on this dainty look.
Onscreen retro wardrobes are all the rage, and new show Magic City is fitting right into the throwback trend. Debuting on April 6 on Starz, the story is set in Miami Beach and follows Frank Sinatra in 1959. So as you can imagine, the female characters wear lots of sophisticated and ladylike details combined with a beachy, breezy feel. Ukrainian beauty Olga Kurylenko, Jessica Marais, and Andy Garcia's daughter Dominik Garcia-Lorido are just some of the stars to watch out for. Click through to get a glimpse at the show's fabulous wardrobe and to shop the retro-chic look. Then be sure to tune in to see how the clothes move in action.
If you're taking Spring's affinity for all things ladylike to heart, then surely you've taken stock of the season's most shoppable ultrafeminine silhouettes. From dainty collar details to full-skirted dresses, it's all about indulging our girlier side. To keep this trend fresh and just a little bit funky, we've honed in on the form-flattering pencil skirt — scouting out the prettiest, and some of the boldest, printed versions we could find. Dolce & Gabbana sent vibrant veggie-themed skirts down the runway, Prada fired up its leather-infused pencil shape with flames emblazoned on the hem, and Peter Pilotto took bright to the next level with its plethora of cool digital print iterations. The fun, and sometimes fantastical, designs do the work for you, so styling's super simple — just add slick heels and a breezy topper. Want to snag your perfect printed pencil skirt?

Jessica Alba injected a pop of pizazz into her street style with a bright orange Ralph Lauren crossbody bag, multicolor Ferragamo flats, and blue Elizabeth and James shades while enjoying an iced coffee in Beverly Hills. The actress has been all over bright-colored denim lately, but for this outing she ditched them for bold accessories. Then Jessica layered a denim vest and thick gray scarf over a white top and rose ankle J Brand skinnies. Style Jessica's eye-catching designer flats with rose skinnies and a white tee, or for a feminine variation on her look, ditch the jeans for a flirty skirt. Don't forget a bright bag — here's another one we love — to complete your Spring style.
Beyoncé took a break from all the bright colors she's been sporting lately and wore a neutral ensemble while out in NYC. She said bye to her loud bottoms — a colorful, printed maxi skirt and floral pants — and opted to wear beige jeggings instead. Continuing her light theme were a blush blouse, denim jacket, and gray-and-white printed scarf. Sparkly Louboutin pumps dressed things up a bit, while black round shades added retro flair. Kickback up top, party on bottom — so Beyoncé and so easy to re-create.
Without question, a crisp white blazer is Spring's answer to Fall's essential leather jacket. But with such a stark statement piece, the task of styling it can be a bit tricky. That's where these street stylers come in. From ultrafeminine takes — think lace on lace and silky pajama shorts — to classic boyfriend jean complements, the structured white blazer can be worn a multitude of ways, and we're prepared to deconstruct the approach for our own Spring dressing inspiration. Whether it be a slick leather pant or a bold yellow cocktail dress, this monochromatic staple bodes well for all occasions. Just click through the slideshow to see how each style setter outfits her white blazer.
