Elizabeth Banks is so funny on 30 Rock & knows how to show off some great casual style. Wearing black cigarette pants, a printed top, brown leather jacket, & sandals, she’s the epitome of cool. With only four or five pieces, she attends the 127 Hours premiere & catches the eye of the press. This look is just perfect for that transitional time when the weather is fooling us with a little warmth, especially when it’s so hard to say goodbye to sandals.
Who says redhead can’t wear red? Here’s Julianne Moore, so beautiful & elegant, wearing a look by Lanvin with ankle strap heels. The mismatch of colors actually works here in crimson & burnt brick. This creates a flawless silhouette, putting actresses twenty years younger than her to shame. Even if you add pointed toe pumps or a chain link belt, this can translate into an office look.
Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr goes a little gothic in all black, but with an animal print booties, she’s all about looking chic. Although this is a jumpsuit from Juicy Couture by Erin Fetherston, all black separates can replicate this easy evening look. To punch up the drama in this look, try a smoky eye & nude lip, or add a metallic clutch & brocade jacket. Or if you can’t find a jumpsuit, try pairing loose fitting pieces like a draped top tucked into harem pants with a cool belt.
Sienna Miller appears again! The jetsetter is headed for a day of travel at LAX with super classic skinny blue jeans, black flats, a gray tee, leather jacket, printed scarf, & sunglasses. Looking like a starlet, she’s wearing items that all of us have in our closets to grab at a moment’s notice. I love the basic black flats in this look & how even when at its most casual, gray really is a great go-to color for a tee.
We don’t often see separates like these looking so chic & elegant for a red carpet appearance. While still trying to look ladylike yet comfortable during a cool evening, Keira Knightley choose a Chanel lightweight long-sleeved sweater & a layered translucent tea length skirt with polished black round toe pumps. This is simply gorgeous for an upcoming holiday party or after work function.
Of course, here you can have the skirt tailored so that it comes up to tea-length. The lace detail is really so very pretty & works nicely for a holiday occasion. Happy Styling!
