Emerald was announced as Pantone's color of 2013 early last month, and some of our favorite style setters have wasted no time heralding in the new hue with their clothing choices (we've already spotted Kate Middleton, Doutzen Kroes, and Allison Williams sporting the shade). But emerald is a jewel tone by nature, so it's no surprise that other stars — like Beyoncé, Lea Michele, and Alessandra Ambrosio — have gotten back to basics by accessorizing their neutral ensembles with stunning emerald baubles. Whether it's a smaller stud or dangling drop style, emerald earrings pop nicely against any skin tone, and can elevate even the most basic LBD. We've rounded up 10 of our favorite pairs — click through to see and shop them now.
If you had asked us pre-Jil Sander Spring '12 if we thought the beanie would be synonymous with "chic hat," we would have said no. Don't get us wrong, we practically live in them come Winter, but this season, we're definitely singing a different tune. In fact, in the aftermath of Jil Sander's ladylike veiled iteration, made popular by Anna Dello Russo, we're spotting a new crop of luxe slouchy knit beanies atop some stylish starlets' heads. For one, model Cara Delevingne is hardly without one, whether it be a sportier monogrammed version or a bright red ribbed topper. Rachel Bilson counts the beanie as an off-duty wardrobe staple, and Rihanna styles her favorite varsity beanie with her usual lineup of kicks, skinny jeans, and covetable outerwear. If you're wondering how to incorporate the laid-back headgear into your own outfit, we suggest easing into it. Start off more polished — i.e., add it to a sleek black maxi dress and blazer combo — and then, for your weekend warrior looks, make it the accessory statement piece by wearing a brighter color on top. For even more beanie-wearing inspiration, this star-studded entourage is just the thing.

There's something very chic happening with each of these celebrity ensembles — and it's all happening south of their ankles. To be fair, their cocktail looks and casualwear are styled starting places, but the outfit clincher in all of these looks is a pair of t-strap heels, flats, or sandals. While the silhouette is nothing new, the t-bar is pulling rank as one of the hottest styles to hit the pavement this season, on the heels of style setters like Alexa Chung at Fashion Week and Emma Stone. As for designers, we're getting both sweet flat and sexier studded iterations from Valentino, retro-feeling heels with modern-day flair from Christian Louboutin, and a range of other styles to choose from that all add extra interest with a t-bar strap. This is style to a T, so click on to see who's wearing them — then shop your own.
Whether embellished, detachable, or as a cool printed or colored contrast, these celebrities are making collars the focus of every outfit. It's a smart move, particularly for this time of year — while high hemlines or lower necklines have typically been the attention getters, these charming details are proving just as statement making, and they don't require any skin baring. In fact, they look particularly sweet popping out from under a crew-neck knit or added to an everyday t-shirt. The proof is in this crew of celebrity stylers, from Alexa Chung to Jordana Brewster, who prove that it really is all about the collar this season, no matter how you choose to wear one.

The spiked and studded shoe isn't necessarily the newest trend on the block, but it certainly has made its embellished presence known as of late. Taking a spin via Diane Kruger, Emma Stone, Marion Cotillard, and more, we've spotted Christian Louboutin's spiked Pigalle flats, as well as the designer's metallic spiked Bis Un Bout pumps, and a pair of sparkly Giuseppe Zanotti sandals to start. The tougher-looking silhouette isn't just a quick way to edge up an outfit; it's actually evolved into its own brand of ladylike style — with a "we mean business" undertone. Now, all you have to do is look to Ginnifer Goodwin's red scalloped Valentino dress and spiked red Christian Louboutin heels to know that this embellished shoe has certainly surpassed its initial bad-girl roots. To see how Jaime King, Rose Byrne, Olivia Palermo, and others are putting their own spin on the trend, keep clicking — then, shop your favorite spiked and studded iterations at the end of the slideshow.

Let's face it: some days you just don't want to wear heels. Then there are those other days when you actually do want to wear heels, but end up succumbing to flats once your dogs start barking.
