Katie Holmes proved workout gear can be both stylish and functional when she layered this Fluxus orange linen moto jacket ($146, originally $209) over a beige tank and black leggings upon exiting SoulCycle gym in NYC. Black leather Bloch flats ($170), a two-tone canvas tote, and loose locks completed her exercise style. Inject a pop of color into your wardrobe by working her exact moto topper with everything from leggings and a tank to a flirty Summer dress, or pair the black version ($209) with liquid leggings for an edgier vibe.
When we watch the temperature climb above the 90s (yikes!), the thought of a simple task like getting dressed can seem near impossible — especially when you factor in the desire to actually appear pulled-together in the sweltering heat. Fortunately, we've got a few tricks up our sleeve for putting our most stylish foot forward, even in the midst of a Summer heat wave. The trick to pulling it off is all in the power of a few statement pieces, so we're looking to bold hues, asymmetrical hemlines, standout jewels, and attention-grabbing cutouts for a high-impact look that's also low-effort. The bonus is that all these pieces (yes, all 99 of them!) are also hot-weather friendly, breathable, and easy to slip into quickly. Just click on to shop the coolest, breeziest Summer clothes for $100 or less.

With The Dark Knight Rises premiering around the globe, we're being treated to an onslaught of Anne Hathaway's feminine brand of red-carpet glamour. The actress is working with her Les Misérables-induced pixie cut by countering with the most flirtatious and feminine of gowns, showing off a peplum-trimmed Givenchy sheath for one appearance, a fringed Stella McCartney the next. Yesterday, Anne took a turn for the ethereal in a white, draped, and peplum-adorned Prabal Gurung Resort '13 confection for the film's NYC premiere; today, she stepped out in London in a floral-collared, gold-beaded Gucci halter dress. Click on to see Anne light up the premiere circuit in her latest looks.
Yesterday she reported to the Gossip Girl set in a blue Marc by Marc Jacobs dress and today Blake Lively donned another bright outfit for her role as Serena Van Der Woodsen. Up top she sported this Alice + Olivia orange beaded top ($165, originally $330) and on bottom a sheer floral maxi skirt. Blake's Christian Louboutin turquoise Bollywood peep toes ($2,795) looked fabulous against the orange background, while a printed chain-strap bag added further texture and shine. Wear Blake's exact top and shoes for your next romantic city stroll or sport them separately to amp up your closet staples.
Jennifer Lopez sure knows how to take her Summer style to glam heights. While spending time with her kids in Toronto, her latest concert tour stop, the singer amped up her white tee and black shorts with a pink Emilio Pucci silk head scarf, oversized square aviator sunglasses, and gold circle drop earrings. We took a look back and discovered that in May 2012, when Jennifer attended the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monaco, she also wore similar accessories with her printed maxi dress via a blue silk printed head scarf, Tom Ford sunglasses, and silver ball drop earrings. If you're having a bad hair day on your getaway, or even if you're not, mimic Jennifer's look via a colorful silky scarf, oversized sunglasses, and shiny drop earrings. Just be sure to wear it soon because once Fall rolls around this resort look won't work.
No outfit's complete without its handbag complement, and if you're like us, there's really no way we could live sans our trusty arm-candy sidekicks. There's got to be some deeper meaning to why we gravitate toward and carry the bags we do — and there is. Thus, we're going to get to the bottom of our bag lady tendencies once and for all. From the silhouettes that best define your fashion identity to which celebrity style icons' bag sensibility you relate to most, it's time to unravel the mystery of "what your bag says about you." Maybe you seek classic pieces to highlight your timeless style-setter MO, perhaps you find bag nirvana in edgier wares from the likes of Alexander Wang and Balenciaga, maybe it's an affinity to ultrafeminine accents that keeps you coming back for girlier chain-strap shoulder bag iterations, or maybe it's a cool combination of all of the above. For a closer look at what your bag says about you, click through for our ultimate breakdown now.
Just because we already know Miranda Kerr is an unstoppable street-style force, we're never any less wowed when she outfits another amazing look. This time the supermodel stepped out in NYC in one seriously gorgeous A.LC. LRD (little red dress) with one big lesson to teach: high-impact color, specifically this bright, red-coral hue is like a styling secret weapon. In a flash of cool color, Miranda needed little else to perfect her look (though a pair of strappy Balenciaga heels don't hurt) — and neither will you. Consider this your call to embrace the red dress with confidence, then shop our picks for the same jaw-dropping effect — even on your everyday dress.
What's more fun than the Great American Pillow Toss? Scoring the entire Rebecca Minkoff outfit Krysten Ritter wore to it! For the Detroit event, the actress donned this Rebecca Minkoff ikat tank ($178), white eyelet skirt ($198), and neon straw clutch — still available in pink and orange ($137). She then finished off her sweet sunny style with teal Rene Caovilla peep-toe pumps ($429, originally $780), navy shades, and Adina Reyter rectangle chain earrings ($65). Shop Krysten's entire look now to wear for your next daytime affair or spice up her ladylike miniskirt with a leather top and pumps for a night out.
