These 26 celebs switched up the norm by donning fresh suits — both with trousers and shorts — at premieres, parties, and other fabulous events.

Celebs love colorblocking and loud prints as much as you and I, but every now and again they ditch all the frill for a white blouse with jeans. Take for instance Charlize Theron, who left all her usual leather at home and opted for a silky white collared blouse, skinny jeans, nude bow Isabel Marant pumps, and a Dior bag. Her simple yet impeccably chic ensemble inspired us to search for other celebs in equally classic-chic white blouse and jeans combos. Step inside to see them all, then the next time you're having a pared-down day, look to these subtle stunners for inspiration.
Who knew that ladylike florals and edgy leather could look so cool together? Not only did we see the pairing on the Spring runways at Alexander Wang and Altuzarra (how amazing is that white leather panel dress?), but celebs have been getting in on the action as well. We've spotted Minka Kelly, Alexa Chung, and Jamie Chung showing off fun floral and leather combos, giving us an instant need to re-create the look for ourselves. Minka wore a J Brand leather tee and Dolce & Gabbana floral jeans on the red carpet recently, finishing her look with Spring-perfect accessories like a yellow clutch and cobalt blue heels. Alexa Chung flaunted her quirky, fearless style in a floral Céline mini, printed tee, and Nicholas Kirkwood loafers — topped with a quilted leather jacket. Last but not least, Jamie Chung added a tough touch to her feminine floral dress by adding sexy leather buckle heels for a subtle, yet still showstopping look.

Alexa Chung is known for her quirky, cool ensembles, and yesterday she styled an outfit that we'll definitely be emulating. For the launch of the British Designers Collective in England, she selected a floral-print, A-line skirt from Celine's resort 2012 collection. In true Alexa fashion, she put a playful spin on her look with a "je t'aime Jane" top, that actually plays homage to another iconic style-setter, Jane Birkin. See how this It-Brit expertly toughened up her florals in today's Fab Flash! On Allison McNamara: H&M top, Banana Republic necklace.
Yesterday, we showed you 10 fabulously floral celeb looks to spend all Spring in. And now, thanks to Brit girl Alexa Chung, there's yet another way to work your florals this season. While serving as host at a London shopping event, Alexa edged up her flirty floral miniskirt via a black leather quilted Balenciaga motorcycle jacket — the same one that Kristen Stewart owns. Then she tucked a longsleeve black tee with the words "je t'aime Jane" into her skirt, and finished off her look with preppy flair via black patent loafers. To re-create Alexa's edgy floral look at home, start with your favorite floral skirt and pair it with your favorite black leather jacket — it need not be Balenciaga or even quilted. Don loafers — or even a pair of classic flats will do — to finish off your look sweetly.
This week on Twitter, celebs shared their candid moments of work and play. Nicole Richie played dress-up during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live, sporting a suit and tie just like host Andy Cohen. We also saw Alessandra Ambrosio showing off her baby bump in a chic neon sweater, Kate Upton trying out a voluminous new 'do, and Alexa Chung sharing some very eye-catching nail art. It's all inside this week's Twitter photo roundup.
Striking her signature balance between quirky and sweet, Alexa Chung looked to a pretty lace dress and her staple furry coat to outfit something of a flawless event style. At last night's NME Awards in London, Alexa channeled ladylike flair with a femme sheer and lace Valentino confection and a classic Chanel bag. Ankle-strap platforms seem to be Alexa's go-to these days, adding to the retro-feeling charm of her evening style — though the real star here may just be her textured topper. We've spotted Alexa front row at Fashion Week with the vintage-feeling coat thrown effortlessly over her every look, and we love how it balances her frilly frock here with its cool, menswear vibe and textured finish.
