Some stars opt to wear sweats while traveling, but not Emmy Rossum. On the contrary, the actress showed off a sassy airport look that's just as ideal for the streets as it is the terminals. She started with the basics: a white tee tucked into a pair of Joe's Jeans skinny flares. Then here's where the real excitement kicked in, when instead of a hoodie, Emmy threw on a bright red blazer. Matching red drop earrings added even more pizazz, while tan lace-up oxfords brought the look back down to earth. If, like Emmy, you're an on-the-go gal, consider investing in a red blazer. It'll bring life to everything from jeans to a little black dress to work trousers to flirty skirts. To get the look, shop our favorite red blazer — and more fab Emmy-inspired pieces — below.
