Straight from the Spring 2013 runways of Burberry Prorsum, Chanel, Gucci, and Stella McCartney, we're loving the clear detailing on these accessories. Lucite clutches, as seen on Solange Knowles and Sophia Bush, are perfect for night, while clear details on Christian Louboutin shoes make your legs look endless. Watch the video for our picks, and then shop below to rock the trend yourself.
Australian actress Rose Byrne attended the Sydney premiere of I Give It a Year looking (pun coming your way) berry beautiful in this Jill Stuart leather-skirt dress ($345, originally $1,150) — that's 70 percent off! She completed her red-carpet style with black suede pointy Casadei pumps, a black Kotur clutch, a matching black cocktail ring, and round silver earrings. Invest in Rose's exact berry-colored dress to wear everywhere from the office to parties. Throw it on with tights and a blazer for work, then come the weekend, ditch the tights and blazer for strappy sandals and a cropped jacket.
Jordana Brewster flew to London to promote her new series Dallas, and we can't stop staring at the sweet ensemble she chose for her daytime appearance. The actress paired a sleeveless pink top with a matching printed brocade pencil skirt, both by Dolce & Gabbana, then finished off with gray suede Jimmy Choo sandals, a black Kotur clutch ($595), and a few sparkly baubles. We've already established that brocade jackets are amazing, and now we're totally sold on brocade skirts. Jordana's ensemble would turn heads at a fancy luncheon or bridal shower and even at the office with a blazer. All you need is an equally smashing brocade skirt — check out the chic selection at ShopStyle — a matching top, and killer heels. To toughen up your brocade, match it with a leather top and booties for night.
Emmanuelle Chriqui flaunted her toned figure in a leather Herve Leger dress at the 2011 Espy Awards in LA. She accessorized her body-hugging frock with red-orange cage sandals, a zippered Kotur clutch, and diamond drop earrings. Emmanuelle donned smoky eyes, a french manicure and au natural locks to complete her award show style. Shop here to copy this flirty and feminine look.
Today Ashley Tisdale shows us how to look polished and pretty, with a twist. The silver miniskirt she wore to a Summer press tour party in Beverly Hills is good-looking, but pairing it with a draped white top made it way more interesting; it's actually all an illusion, too — an ivory and metallic colorblock dress by BODYAMR. Adding further dazzle to the mix are bow peep-toes, Kara Ackerman Designs rhinestone hoop earrings, a snake ring by C. Greene, and a snakeskin Kotur clutch.
