The 25 best celebrity outfit ideas of 2012
Wear head-to-toe oxblood
Alexa Chung shows us how to test-drive the color of the year by pairing her knit turtleneck with a matching leather skirt. Mixed materials added dimension to the monochromatic look.
Break out of your typical date-night outfit mold
Instead of your go-to LBD or jeans and a cute top, why not try a patterned romper like Kristen Stewart’s? Cage booties toughen up your look, ensuring no one mistakes you for a little kid.
Opt for a dressy skirt for day
Daytime dressing can be tricky. You don’t want to go over the top, but you still want to look put-together. Jordana Brewster’s knee-length pattern skirt, slouchy top, and low-heel sandals strike the right balance and also work for drinks later on.
Mix navy, black, and white
Dianna Agron proves that black, white, and navy can go together if deliberately styled. That means your navy items aren’t so dark that they almost look black and that there are equal amounts of both black and navy pieces in your dressing equation.
Try patterned pants for a formal occasion
When paired with a sheer blouse, Joan Smalls’ festive party pants are a great alternative to a cocktail dress. Add your highest heels and you’re ready to party.
Dress up your fave tee
Giorgia Surina upgraded a T-shirt by pairing it with a body-con skirt in a luxe velvet fabric. Leather accessories will help you tie the whole look together.
Choose a crop top
Take a cue from Zoe Saldana and wear a crop top with a high-waisted skirt. The cute, classy outfit is ideal for an afternoon party.
Wear neon colors in simple silhouettes
Eva Longoria pulls off a neon orange dress because, at the end of the day, it’s just a simple shift dress. Paired with nude accessories, this outfit works from day to night.
Consider a velvet pantsuit for a night out
Dress code call for black tie? Go the edgy route like Elizabeth Olsen and rock a velvet pantsuit and crisp white blouse. You’ll stand out from the black-gown pack in the best way possible.
Don your springtime denim during the winter
Transition the colorful denim you wore last spring by wearing it with dark pieces like Jessica Alba does here. While the rest of your wardrobe may say “winter drab,” your jeans can be your Technicolor moment.
