American Express (one of Miami Swim Week's big sponsors) is hosting our stay in style, so we're looking to up the ante on our tropical-weather dress code. From breezy maxi dresses to LWDs, statement sandals, and fun accessories, our stylishly packed suitcase is not only perfect for checking out the latest swim collections, but for any Summer Miami trip, as well.

Blake Lively reported to the NYC set of Gossip Girl wearing this blue Marc by Marc Jacobs tie-waist silk dress ($398). Pops of bright accessories included green and pink drop earrings, bright coral cutout Christian Dior sandals, and a floral-printed shoulder bag. To get Serena's onscreen look in your city, shop her exact dress, this New York & Co. sleeveless blue wrap dress ($50) or this Donna Morgan pleated blue halter dress ($158) if you prefer a longer hemline. Match your pick with bold accoutrements like Blake did on set, and you'll get the Gossip Girl look minus the drama.
Celebrity stylist Brad Goreski's famous clients include Jessica Alba, Rashida Jones, Demi Moore, Christina Ricci, Minka Kelly, and Shay Mitchell. The dapper fellow is currently on a nationwide tour with eBay as part of the Selling Style Studio, and we got a chance to catch up with him on his LA stop. We chatted everything from Jessica Alba's colored-denim obsession — "I can’t take credit for all of the looks" — to what pieces you need to buy to get her look to his styling techniques. Get the full scoop below!
CS: What is your approach to dressing clients and does it differ according to the person?
BG: It does, absolutely. Me and my assistants pull specifically for each client, and it’s all curated toward a direction that I think they should go in. If we’ve been doing a lot of ladylike looks, maybe it’s time to try something a little more minimal or something that’s Far East-inspired or gypsy look or something bohemian. We always try to come in with a plan and a vision.
CS: And how involved are the clients with this process?
BG: It’s always collaborative. I think you want to bring things to your clients that you know that they’ll like and also bring things that you’re trying to push them in a certain direction. And it’s my job as the stylist to do that. I think if I’m just bringing things that they would normally gravitate to, I’m not really doing my job.

While Michelle Williams palled around NYC with her funny guy, Jason Segel, we couldn't help but notice that the actress was trying out one of our favorite styling tricks. With a Carven photo-print sheath on, Michelle Williams already had the makings of a cool look, but her high-top kicks took it to the next level of street chic. Consider this the living proof that a sporty counterpart to your favorite dress can have a pretty awesome effect — and requires minimal effort. In this case, look to a bold-print day dress and low-key kicks to channel Michelle's effortless day wear, then be sure to check out our tips to style up any of your dresses with sneakers for maximum cool.
Anne Hathaway stepped out in a gorgeous gown from Prabal Gurung's Resort 2013 collection that took our breath away at last night's premiere.

Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more about Anne's white-hot stunner.
Celebrities love accessories, and Jacquie Aiche's double bone horn necklace ($3,940) is one chic pendant that has been a style staple for Miley Cyrus and Alessandra Ambrosio. The Victoria's Secret model has been spotted donning her diamond-accented pendant all over the beaches of Malibu, while Miley has paired hers with everything from street looks to workout attire. If you're on the hunt for a celeb-approved necklace you'll never want to take off, click through to see how these starlets worked their glam horn pendant, then shop the exact item for yourself.
If you're a strapless bikini kind of girl, then you'll definitely love this new trend, twist bandeaus, where the center of the bikini top, where the two cups meet, is twisted. Check out Ashley Tisdale and Rihanna both wearing a printed twist bandeau bikini while on vacation. Ashley's is the strapless version of this Boys + Arrows bikini ($185). What's great about the twist bandeau, vs. the regular one, is that it shows off more of your cleavage. But since the strapless detail gives it a sporty look, it's not overtly sexy. If you're in the market for a new bikini, we recommend drawing inspiration from Rihanna and Ashley's latest bikini. To get started, shop our favorite twist bandeau bikinis below.

Even if you aren't necessarily a jeans-and-tee kind of girl, everyone can totally appreciate the appeal of a great vintage t-shirt. The beauty of these throwback tops is that they've already surpassed the test of trendiness, and instead, represent a feeling or memory about a particular time, place, or thing. While it's a cheeky front-and-center way to show off your favorite sports team, your college alma mater, your childhood sleepaway camp, your first concert ever, and so on — it's an easily styled basic, too. Whether you pair it with sleek tuxedo-inspired trousers and sandals or play up its nostalgic feel with denim cutoffs and high-top Chucks, these shirts are the perfect complement to an array of day-to-night outfits. See which softer than soft, go-with-everything vintage tees are currently on our need-now list.
