If you're still not sure what to wear to your Memorial Day barbecue (hey, it happens), just cull some style inspiration from Olivia Palermo. The socialite was snapped out and about in NYC looking chic, Summery, and perfect for a daytime celebration. We honestly can't decide what we love more about Olivia's ensemble — from her sweet printed shorts to her silky V-neck blouse, right down to her red flats and beachy-cool Gerard Darel bag, her outfit is polished yet laid-back, a subtle nod to Americana and, best of all, totally easy to replicate for your big BBQ. To copy her look, just start with a pair of navy-and-red printed shorts then tuck in a cream-colored blouse and cinch it at the waist with a skinny brown belt. Add accessories like a cool crochet bag, sleek red flats, and tortoiseshell Wayfarers. Click through the widget below to shop similar pieces now — and Happy Memorial Day!

Diane Kruger has shown nothing but showstopping glamour during this year's Cannes Film Festival, so it was only appropriate that she go out on a high note. The actress and film festival juror attended Sunday's closing ceremony and the premiere of Thérèse Desqueyroux in a wildly voluminous Christian Dior Haute Couture ball gown. The black, white, and gray plaid confection had a structured bodice and was accompanied by a very Victorian-inspired bustle and train. She kept all eyes on the gorgeous gown by keeping her hair and makeup slightly subdued and accessorizing only with a pair of diamond earrings. Needless to say, we're smitten with Diane's look — click through to see it from all angles now and don't forget to check out the rest of her stunning outfits at Cannes.

That's just the beginning, so if you're ready to dive in, then just keep clicking for today's Fab recap.
This week, our Fab Community stuck to striking neon pieces and bright, mixed prints. From cropped floral pants to polka-dot skinny jeans, our readers proved that bold bottoms work well with both neutrals and patterns. Whether mini or maxi, skirts were full of volume and paired with simple tops in classic shapes. High heels and structured handbags topped off the looks, adding a refined element to the colorful prints. Here are our favorites: florals and spots, neo(n)-bohemian, floral love, siren twist, '60s sweater, dress to impress, neon dots, sequins and ruffles, date night, and icky pop. Congrats all!
Parisian designer Shourouk Rhaiem first had me hooked with an insanely beautiful crystal bird statement necklace, but that was $700, and I was looking for a slightly smaller investment. That's when I came across her crystal and rope bracelets ($210). The mix of pastel and neon crystal with woven cord feels simultaneously regal and sporty, the combination of which I equate with perfection. You could totally stack these, but just one is enough, and it would also make a great gift, no?
