It always warms our hearts to see a celebrity recycling a piece of clothing (we're looking at you, Kate Middleton and Michelle Obama), and when it happens in a few days' time, it's even more inspiring. Sure, we'd rather see Eva Mendes with her actual boyfriend, but we were happy to catch the actress styling up a pair of slouchy, distressed boyfriend jeans two different ways over the weekend. One day, Eva cozied things up by layering a black tank over a fitted navy-blue sweater and pairing her jeans with tan Isabel Marant wedge sneakers. The next day, Eva went for another laid-back look, this time with a billowy striped button-down and neutral ankle booties. For both daytime outings, she carried a sleek, two-toned leather crossbody bag and retro cat-eye shades — the perfect low-key accessory for an afternoon spent running errands.

Gwen Stefani has the fashion chops to pull off any look, from red-carpet goddess to punk-chic icon, this style chameleon turns heads in whatever she wears, and her latest West Hollywood look didn't disappoint. The blond stunner styled a black-and-white sheer-back sleeveless top with distressed Levi's boyfriend jeans and gray suede ankle boots, mixing trends, fabrics, and proportions like only she can. Our favorite fashionista finished off her party style with a white leather Chanel tote, embellished belt, and bevy of silver accessories.

Before strutting her stuff at the Olympics Closing Ceremony, Kate Moss stepped out in a cropped python-trim vest with cuffed boyfriend jeans in London. The model's textured topper injected a bit of edge to her simple black tank, cuffed denim, and strappy black sandals, while her blue Prada tote added a touch of playfulness. She finished off her London look with a heart necklace, simple gold bangle, and square metal sunglasses.

Miley Cyrus excels at the art of unexpected fashion pairings, working retro dresses with high-top sneakers, short shorts with knee-high boots, and now, distressed boyfriend Levi's jeans with tan peep-toe Elizabeth and James wedges ($275). Miley played with proportions in a cropped white tank and oatmeal cardigan, then took her stellar Philadelphia style a step further with a black studded Valentino bag ($1,598), a bevy of gold accessories, and round tortoise shades. Copy this downtown-cool style with distressed denim, a cropped tank and cardigan, and leather peep-toe wedges for a shopping date with the girls.
While strolling the streets of Paris, Kylie Minogue topped her chic travel style — black crochet cardigan and cuffed boyfriend jeans — with suede Dolce & Gabbana sandals ($597, originally $995) and a stylish panama hat. We've seen a few stars in sweet hats, but we particularly love how Kylie's topper and classic wayfarer shades injected a cool touch to her polished look. Score her exact sandals to pair with cuffed jeans, a black cardigan, and a hat to re-create Kylie's Parisian-chic pairing or lighten things up with a white tank and these snakeskin Cole Haan sandals ($168) for a day of errands.
