Rihanna showed off her curves in a fiery one-piece Minkpink suit and gold geometric Miu Miu shades ($390) while cruising through the Mediterranean. She accessorized her low-cut number with a delicate Jacque Aiche body chain ($250), gold anklet, and perfect rouge pout. As Rihanna's glam vacation style proved, looking like a rock star doesn't mean you have to bare it all. Choosing a one-piece in a bold color and complementing it with unique gold accessories will make you stand out — while still showcasing your feminine side — when you hit the waves this Summer!

There's nothing wrong with keeping it real simple, and that's exactly what Keri Russell showed off in spades in LA yesterday. Dressed in a breezy white button-up shirt, denim ankle-cut jeans, and tan-colored Worishofer sandals, the low-key starlet proved that even the easiest of pieces can make an effortlessly polished and, in this case, totally classic style statement. The key to Keri's spot-on look was her impeccable attention to details: the tucked-in shirt, the preppy tortoiseshell sunglasses, and the subtle addition of a few gold bracelets all contributed to a strategic juxtaposition of undone-meets-refined styling. We think it's the perfect off-duty combo that — with a quick patent-leather heel and tailored-blazer switchup — can transition into an any-occasion ensemble.

Tonight marks the official London 2012 Olympics kickoff, and with it, another epic moment in sports history is about to launch itself head first into 16 days' worth of nonstop athletic competition. While we're excited to play spectator to our favorite events (women's gymnastics, Ryan Lochte doing basically anything, and beach volleyball), there's obviously another component of the Olympics that we're keeping a close eye on: the fashion, of course. Sure, it's not your traditionally chic lineup of covetable outfits, but let it be known: Team USA knows how to rock some seriously patriotic looks. This year's opening ceremony wares come courtesy of Ralph Lauren, but in years past, we've spotted everything from retro red, white, and blue nylon tracksuits to crisp navy-blue blazers and white beret combos. In honor of the Summer Games, we're taking a closer look at how these American Olympians put their star-spangled spin on sporty style.
Don't let a burst of color or a tricky print get in the way of your personal style. To set you on the path of graphic-printed t-shirt righteousness, we've outfitted this bold comic-inspired 3.1 Phillip Lim tee ($175) five unique ways. If you've got a more polished 9-to-5 dress code, add a black leather pencil skirt, slick ankle-strap sandals, and statement jewelry to the mix. If you're more of a laid-back kind of girl, play up the bright hues in the shirt via a navy-blue blazer, neon-yellow shoulder bag, and classic white Chucks. We've thought of everything, even catering to an ethereal blend of flowy chiffon and mixed metallics for the ultrafeminine style setter. Click through for our take — five ways — on this season's vibrant printed t-shirt, and then shop the look that makes this quirky piece work for you.
