Get inspired with fresh outfit ideas by taking cues from stylish stars who take fashion to a new level.
Color and texture are two major things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect outfit. Crimson red is a power color and sure to make a bold statement. Selena Gomez, Dakota Fanning, and Michelle Monaghan were ladies in red this week. Gomez’s Dior mini dress with cap-toe pumps has all the elements of a sexy date night look. It has a plunging neckline, a cinched waist, and is simple in detail. Fanning’s Valentino suede fringed dress with its lightweight and soft texture makes for a fun choice for an outside concert. Fringe continues to be a big hit because it is both edgy and ladylike. Michelle Monaghan’s wool-embroidered tulle dress contrasts heavy and light fabrics, has a high round neck and a full skirt, which makes for chic cocktail attire.
Velvet was popping up all over the fall runways and Lea Michele stuns in this plush fabric at the premiere for American Horror Story: Freak Show. Michele revives the '80s trend with a thigh-high slit and a bustier-style boned bodice, making for a sexy choice for a romantic evening or intimate dinner. It is important not to over accessorize and allow for the richness of the fabric to speak for itself.
A dainty and ultra-feminine look for a brunch or other daytime social events is florals. Fashion has an ongoing love affair with florals because of its subtle appeal and this fall, designers are taking on a darker mood, with deep pinks, creams, and vintage-inspired greens. Keira Knightley wore a Valentino floral and arabesque-print ankle length dress to the London Film Festival. Tracee Ellis Ross posed in a Duro Olowu dress with a sheer collar. Megan Fox wore a vibrant blue print Marc Jacobs sleeveless top and skirt while attending photocall in Berlin, Germany this week.
