Kristen Stewart hasn't missed a stylish step while promoting the last installment of the Twilight Saga, and her latest look was right on point. The actress got leggy in black leather-panel Rebecca Minkoff shorts, a gray Alternative Apparel top, and embellished ankle-strap Barbara Bui sandals while on a variety show in Madrid. Kristen has been hitting fashion high notes in designer duds from LA to London, but we love how this effortless ensemble stayed true to Kristen's laid-back persona. Re-create this cool-girl style with a charcoal long-sleeved top, black leather-panel shorts, and ankle-strap sandals, or pair her exact bottoms in a bold python print ($428) with a chunky black sweater and matching ankle booties for a flawless Fall look.
Not only does Olivia Wilde look good, but she does good, too. The actress has teamed up with Alternative Apparel to create this limited-edition army canvas backpack ($138) in the name of charity. For every bag sold, proceeds will benefit the Academy for Peace and Justice in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. At the launch event in NYC, Olivia sported her backpack with this A.L.C. printed maxi skirt ($434, originally $621), a black racerback tank, and brown ankle-strap sandals. Score Olivia's bag to wear with her exact skirt or throw it on with more casual jeans.
At the Marni for H&M launch party, Freida Pinto told us she loves color, but the actress looks equally stunning in black and gray on the April issue of Nylon. The cover girl sported a Chanel leather motorcycle jacket over a gray Alternative Apparel zip-up hoodie, which topped a black mesh American Apparel crop top. Freida's look is equal parts edgy and sporty, and it's one that's easily re-creatable at home. Just wear any zip-up hoodie — it need not be gray — with your favorite leather jacket, then finish it off with jeans and stylish sneakers. We're digging Ash's Bowie wedges. Another fun color combo would be a brown leather jacket over a gray or purple hoodie. Leave the crop top to Freida, unless, that is, you're going for an in-your-face statement.
Just like love at first sight, there are some outfits that make your heart beat faster immediately after you lay eyes on them. That's exactly what happened when we beheld what Glee's Jayma Mays wore to a Lucky magazine soiree in LA. Where do we start? First, the Alice + Olivia red tweed jacket; it feeds into the tweed-jacket craze, but because it's red, it's less stuffy and more sassy. Instead of pairing it with, say, black pants, Jayma opted to jazz things up even more with a pair of bright blue silk pants. And we applaud her for that bravery. Her Brian Atwood lace cutout booties and sparkly envelope clutch add further pizazz to her cool-chic ensemble, which also includes an Alternative Apparel tee. Next time you hit the party circuit in your city, consider mimicking Jayma's electric ensemble. And if you're in the market for a fabulous tweed jacket, this one is it.

You know how your parents always told you not to slouch? Well, sometimes parents just don't understand. Adding a little slouch to your look can give a cool, effortless spin on an otherwise classic ensemble. Fab reader steffysprosandcons has totally perfected the slouch — and you can get her look by pairing a pleated mini with a simple tank, then layering a slouchy, heather-gray sweatshirt ($40) on top. Accessories are key, as you don't want to look sloppy. Dress up the look with a pair of black lace-up ankle boots ($60, originally $80), a structured handbag, and a cool, Spring-ready straw hat ($55).
We purchase certain summer staples, like the burnout t-shirt, year after year because they never really go out of style and are perfect for the hot NYC days ahead. This season we're loving a few updates to our closet classic. Barely there animal prints (like Rebecca Taylor's version in gray leopard or Forever 21's yellow zebra cropped top) and gauzy dresses made with the same see-through fabric (the tank style from Vince and Alternative Apparel's tie-front mini) are among our current favorites.
Re-imagining the classic tee, designers Richard Chai and Jeremy Scott have teamed up with Alternative Apparel founder Greg Alterman on a capsule collection. Sold exclusively at Refinery29, the lineup features a hooded minidress, long sleeve bodysuit, and turtleneck dress by Scott and ruffle-adorned tops by Chai—all in Alternative Apparel's signature, perfectly soft cotton jersey.
