Although Winter has just begun, our favorite fashionable celebs have been vacationing at some of the most beautiful beaches and donning some seriously chic warm-weather looks. Julianne Hough worked a breezy island-ready combo while shopping in St. Barts, Jessica Alba sported a punchy Isabel Marant tunic with a panama hat in Cabo, and Michelle Williams topped her black bandeau bikini with a chambray shirt and classic shades in Mexico. If you're heading to a tropical destination or just getting a jump-start on planning your Summer adventures, be sure to mimic these two celeb-approved resort looks.
On her way into the Roberto Cavalli show at Milan Fashion Week, Solange Knowles once again nailed the mixed-print trend by donning a blue-and-white print dress with a contrast-lapel print blazer, both by Cavalli. This ensemble was eye-catching but pretty tame for Solange, as just last week we spotted the trendsetter working an even bolder mix at New York Fashion Week. The fashion maven completed her busy ensemble with black caged Christian Louboutin sandals and a bevy of gold accessories — a leaf bracelet, cutout cuffs, bangles, and a pyramid ring. Take a cue from Solange and pair a printed sheath with a printed blazer and caged sandals for a super fashionable look.
Kim Kardashian hit the purple carpet at Silk Road Nightclub in Australia in a fun end-of-Summer ensemble: a colorful tropical-print Alexander McQueen dress and pointed white pumps. As of late Kim has been sporting lots of dark hues, like her all-black pairing complete with ankle-chain Tom Ford sandals, so this bold blossoming look is a welcome change. Re-create Kim's eye-catching style with this tropical-print Motel Zoe dress ($19, originally $49) and white pumps to turn heads at an evening fête.
Eva Mendes stuck to her retro aesthetic while running errands in LA, only this time she injected a touch of boho glam to her daytime look. The actress started off with a bright-colored printed Thakoon dress — here it is in a similar style ($258, originally $550) — then finished off with her outfit via printed Thierry Lasry shades, a gold chain necklace, a brown Ralph Lauren saddlebag, and wedge t-strap sandals. If you're color and/or print shy, let Eva inspire you to start experimenting via a bold dress. You don't have to do any thinking; just pair it with neutral accessories to tame the look. Then later on, dress it up with a black blazer and high-heeled sandals for a more nighttime-appropriate version.
Michelle Williams grabbed lunch with boyfriend Jason Segel at Little Dom's in Los Feliz wearing a colorful printed shirtdress with Ray-Ban Wayfarers, a tan shoulder bag, and wedge sandals. The actress has no shortage of quirky printed dresses that she's been showcasing all Summer long, but we love how her latest style is a modern update on the traditional shirtdress. Inspired by Michelle, we've hand-selected a bunch of similar printed shirtdresses that you can wear with sandals while strolling the city, at work with a blazer and pumps, or at night with a leather jacket and killer high-heeled sandals.
For the NYC premiere of Celeste and Jesse, Rashida Jones captured our attention in her sweet and sassy Thakoon Resort '13 dress and Valentino crystal-coated sandals ($1,195). The colorful abstract print and plunging neckline were standout, and the knee-length hemline and oversized pockets lent a sweet touch. While her exact dress is not available to purchase online, you can re-create this spotlight-worthy look by pairing the retro dress we chose below, or this floral halter dress by Jessica Simpson ($116, originally $128), with a metallic belt, gold hoop earrings, and a pair of t-strap sandals.

While grabbing lunch in LA with her boyfriend, Michael Polish, Kate Bosworth showed off her breezy, bohemian Summer style in a brown printed spaghetti-strap dress. But what really made her look pop were her tan accessories: a Ralph Lauren saddle bag — shop the lighter version here ($1,163) — a tan studded belt, which lent shape to her waist, and tan ankle-strap flat sandals. Matching accessories can sometimes look too contrived, especially if it's a bright color, but we love that Kate chose tan for a subtle approach. To follow Kate's Summer fashion formula, shop your favorite similarly styled pairing below.
Most people wear little duds in Vegas, but when Chloe Moretz attended the CinemaCon awards ceremony there, she opted for a darling ladylike purple metallic Kenzo dress and Jimmy Choo sandals. It's such an adorable ensemble, but one that doesn't lose its fashion-forward edge in its sweetness. We love everything from the print to the dressy collar to the pleated skirt to the knee-length hemline. This look is perfect for an occasion that calls for a more demure dress code.

Taylor Schilling continues to promote her new flick, The Lucky One, as well as her smashing fashion sense across the globe.

Inspired by Taylor's standout structured frocks, we set out to find equally knockout styles for all your upcoming Spring soirees. Step inside to see them all and to shop your favorite(s).
It's no secret that Michelle Williams loves printed frocks topped with equally fabulous jackets, so her latest NYC ensembles are nothing out of the ordinary for her.

While hanging out with daughter Matilda in Brooklyn, Michelle wore one super-springy outfit — a floral frock with a trench — and another more Fall-appropriate look. Step inside to see and shop both cute looks for your next city stroll.
