8 Style cues to take from recent celeb looks
Celebrities are often among the first to showcase fashion trends, so we've rounded up eight superstar looks that hit on trends well worth making your own this season.
Victoria Beckham has it all: A gorgeous figure, a stunning husband, a beautiful family, a great career and, of course, impeccable style. It's hard not to covet the tailored tuxedo jacket she's rocking here. It's right on trend and is a perfect addition to any wardrobe. The piece is surprisingly versatile; it can be worn more casually with jeans (as Victoria does here) or you can dress it up with a cocktail dress.
Talk show host Kelly Ripa is like Mary Poppins -- practically perfect in every way! And this perfection certainly extends to her cheery sense of style. Take a page from her book with this perfect piece for summer: A bright yellow fun-and-flirty ruffled top.
Funky belts are nothing new, but here High School Musical darling Vanessa Hudgens kicks it up a notch with a fresh asymmetrical belt. Since the design is already so unique, it's safer to stick to a tame color when trying one yourself.
Hot mama Nicole Richie is always on the forefront of fashion, even if that sometimes means going back to basics. While her foldover boots may steal the show in her outfit here, those boots certainly aren't for everyone. What is for the masses is a rustic denim jacket, which as Nicole shows, can be worn with even the most feminine of outfits.
The City's villainess Olivia Palermo demonstrates exactly how to transform that vest into a spring or even summer wardrobe staple by pairing it with a flowing top and shorts. It's a chic, on-the-go look!
Casual goes formal
Lauren Conrad has always had an easy, breezy California style, so it's no surprise that when she went formal, she integrated a casual piece into the look. Those shorts would be just as suited for a jog as they are for a step and repeat; however, because of the way she puts the outfit together, they work flawlessly in a formal look.
Plaid isn't just for lumberjacks anymore, and Beyonce proves this point with flying colors. Make plaid your own with a flirty, leg-baring dress. It's the perfect casual look for running errands or grabbing brunch this sunny season.
Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester looks fresh and trendy in this Aztec print Matthew Williamson (of H&M collaboration fame) top. The print is a fun way to jazz up any outfit.
