Little did Alessandra Ambrosio know that when she was out grabbing coffee in LA, she was simultaneously reminding us of the importance of lightness. Case in point: the Victoria's Secret Angel showed off how to colorblock softer Spring colors in the Winter. The model started off her daytime ensemble with a beige batwing turtleneck sweater, then styled it with a pair of rose-colored skinny corduroys. She then added just the right amount of camel via her Rag & Bone Harrow booties ($495). A matching beige leather fringe bag, oversize brown sunglasses, and a few gold baubles made for a shiny finish. We know Spring isn't here (yet), but why not start prepping by experimenting with lighter staples now? Re-create Alessandra's exact look or try mixing and matching pretty, neutral pieces you already own now.
These masters of boho cool prove that all you really need to carry the look is a fabulous, fringed bag. Echoing the fringed looks we saw coming down the runway at Matthew Williamson's Spring '11 show or Isabel Marant's Fall '11 collection, the fringed satchel makes getting the style that much easier. Just throw it over your shoulder, à la Halle Berry, Rachel Zoe, or Kristin Cavallari, or carry it on a crossbody, as Olivia Wilde does. However you choose to wear it — even on a clutch — the resulting look is effortlessly boheme, carefree, and utterly cool for Summer right into Fall. Shop our editors' picks below to get the look.
When Blake Lively isn't on the set of Gossip Girl, she's stylishly strolling hand in hand with real-life boyfriend Penn Badgley. For this particular walk, Blake opted for a breezy navy tank dress, but it's her accessories that kick her look up a notch. A tan fringe crossbody bag lends boho cool, while a canvas hat provides chic femininity. Hoop earrings, a delicate pendant necklace, and a chunky cuff bracelet add further flair.
