While vacationing on a yacht in Portofino, Italy, Rihanna sported a sexy leopard-print triangle bikini. Later on, she threw on a letterman jacket and these Miu Miu gold pentagonal sunglasses ($390) that took her look to a whole new funky level. If you're not afraid to make your face stand out, invest in Rihanna's latest geometric eyewear. For something equally standout but subtle, try these Kate Spade geometric sunglasses ($128) or this more affordable Halogen pair ($58).

Colorful skirts have the ability to instantly take a separates ensemble from regular to totally spotlight-worthy. Need proof? Just take a gander at these three stars in their colorful printed skirts.

Want the same bright look for yourself? Shop our favorite colorful printed skirts below, then look to these three ladies for inspiration on how to rock them from dinners to parties to work.
Rachel Weisz took our breath away at The Bourne Legacy premiere in NYC wearing a gorgeous look from Raf Simons's Christian Dior Couture collection. As the second celebrity spotted in the designer's debut line for the fashion house — Marion Cotillard was first spotted donning a printed ladylike look from the line a few weeks ago — Rachel was proof that the right black dress can speak volumes. The actress looked modern, sleek, and ultrasexy in her Christian Dior confection, which she accessorized with a Charlotte Olympia embellished clutch and whimsical bow adorned shoes from Christian Louboutin. See every jaw-dropping angle now.
It's Summer, so what better way to kick off our POPSUGAR Must Have subscription than with the perfect beach bag! This month we focused on the season's essential beauty items, like nail polish to show off in your favorite sandals, exfoliator to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh, and lip color for a night out on the town. This is just the beginning of so much yet to come — we'll be sharing our picks in home, fashion, fitness, food, and everything else we love. August is all about entertaining. Here's why we picked out what went inside our inaugural July POPSUGAR Must Have bag! We hope you love it as much as we do.
Michelle Trachtenberg grabbed lunch at famous Malibu Greek spot Taverna Tony wearing a casual and cute navy and mint ensemble, including this Zara mint studded jacket ($60, originally $90). From afar it looks like leather but it's actually linen, making it perfect for Summer. Leopard wedge espadrilles similar to this pair from Steve Madden ($57), blue aviator sunglasses, a navy tank, and navy skinny jeans completed Michelle's beachside style. Score her exact Zara jacket on sale to pair with your navy pieces or throw it on over a neon yellow dress for mega sass.
Australian model Jessica Hart has no shortage of cool-girl outfits, and the one she wore to a QVC party in NYC is just another one of them. What we particularly admire here is that Jessica took a '70s-style floppy hat and managed to give it a modern spin. She started with a navy blue shortsleeve top and paired it with an ethereal ivory pleated skirt. She then finished off with the perfect Summer accessories: a straw satchel, matching tan t-strap sandals, and of course, a glamorous floppy hat that stole the show. Inspired by Jessica, dust off your floppy hat and give it a modern spin by pairing it with a tee, pleated skirt, and neutral accessories. Shop similar pieces below to get started.
While strolling the streets of NYC with Suri over the weekend, Katie Holmes wore this J. Crew floral button-up blouse ($150) with a pair of wide-leg lightwash Goldsign jeans, creating the perfect '70s-inspired daytime look. She finished her ensemble via oversized square metal sunglasses, off-white shoes, and a tan bag. While we love the way Katie styled her floral blouse — here are similar wide-leg jeans by Marc by Marc Jacobs ($228) to re-create her outfit — it would also look fabulous with a pair of black shorts or a denim skirt. You can also dress it up with leather pants and killer heels for night, or tuck it into a pencil skirt or wide-leg trousers for a more professional feel at work.
