Steal the look: Kelly Ripa
Kelly Ripa has it all: a hot husband, gorgeous children, fabulous career, killer figure, and here, a super chic out-and-about ensemble. You may not be able to steal her fairytale life, but you can steal this look.
Kelly's look starts with a simple solid navy tank top. Try Old Navy's long layering tank in navy blue; its soft cotton material is ultra comfortable and it features a scoop neck similar to the one on the shirt Kelly is sporting. Best of all, you'll get a whole lot of mileage out of this super versatile piece. $8.50 from OldNavy.com.
Kelly shows off her killer body with a skintight horizontal striped skirt. While this nautical-inspired piece definitely looks fierce on her, the combination of being super tight and having widening horizontal stripes can be a bit tough to pull off if you don't have a TV star figure so we have two options that will help to get the same look in a manner that us mere mortals can achieve:
Stick with the tight pencil skirt silhouette but do so with a more forgiving solid-colored one with this below the knee high waist cotton pencil skirt in marine from Express. $59.50 from Express.com.
Or stick with the horizontal stripes but do so with a less figure-hugging shape; this striped skirt from Forever 21 flows away from your body and has forgiving pleating as well. Just make sure for this look to ditch the basket weave belt that comes with it. $17.80 from Forever21.com.
Kelly keeps it pretty simple with footwear choosing dark brown sandals with thick straps. J. Crew's Elodie Vachetta stacked-heel sandal in nutmeg has a similar shape and color. Plus its thick stacked heel is ideal for strolling down the street in style, not in pain. $198 from JCrew.com.
Kelly carries a black leather handbag that is almost as big as she is! One thing is for sure, with a bag like this, you won't have to leave anything you need at home. Try Lulu's black Soho handbag, which is almost identical to Kelly's bag, right down to the gold hardware. $34 from Lulus.com.
Kelly adds some interest to her simple solid top by layering multiple strands of silver necklaces. Make this easy to duplicate with one necklace that features multiple strands, such as this laser cut bead necklace from Forever 21. $5.80 from Forever21.com.
Look like a true star by finishing off your look with oversized dark brown shades as Kelly does. These brown Merona plastic sunglasses with embellishment from Target have a similar oversized shape and chic aura. $16.99 from Target.com.
