Jessica Simpson's Secret Fashion Formula
Her biggest venture yet?
Her new daughter, Maxwell. Here's how the new mom makes chic, everyday fashion choices.
HAVE AN MVP ACCESSORY
"I wear the same delicate chain with a sparkly little charm all the time. I've given it as a gift to a few of my friends, because it goes with everything."
Necklace, Stella & Dot, $98; stelladot.com.
GIVE YOURSELF A LIFT
"I couldn't wait to get back in heels this summer! I especially like print ones because they're ladylike but make a real statement."
Heels, Payless, $27.99; payless.com.
JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE PREGNANT...
"You're not limited to maternity clothes. I wore flowy or fitted maxidresses, and practically lived in Roberto Cavalli's comfy-chic caftans."
Blue dress, Sofia by Sofia Vergara, $39.99; kmart.com.
THE MORE LIVED-IN DENIM LOOKS, THE COOLER IT IS
"I have a vintage denim button-down that I absolutely love. It's been patched and sewn so many times, but it is my favorite thing to throw on."
Shirt, Mavi Gold, $98; Mavi, NYC, 212-979-6128.
WHEN IT COMES TO ACCESSORIES...
Mix it up: Gold and silver, diamonds with plastic, or a polished bag with a casual outfit feels eclectic and fun."
Bag, Shop Suey Boutique, $39; shopsueyboutique.com.
THE BEST OUTFITS...
"Reflect who you are. I love to be comfortable, but I also love to play up the glamour. My go-to look--denim shorts and a tee with a blazer and heels--is a blend of both. It's classic, but flirty, too."
Blazer, Jessica Simpson Collection, $79; Macy's. T-shirt, Aerie, $15.50; aerie.com. Shorts, Mossimo for Target, $17.99; target.com.
THE SECRET TO GLOWY SKIN:
