Although we are looking forward to fall—let’s face it, we can’t say no to faux fur coats and chunky ankle boots—we are also making the most of the waning days of summer. Accordingly, we have been looking for new ways to wear our favorite dresses, which is why we are so excited about today’s Steal Her Style story! Thanks to three modish muses—Rihanna, Zoe Saldana, and Ashley Tisdale—we have some fab new outfit inspiration to mull over. On that note, if you, too, have been soaking up the summer sun, read on for some fresh last-minute ideas!
When it comes to off-duty style, we always look forward to seeing what Rihanna does next, and her latest ensemble didn’t disappoint. Last week, Rihanna was spotted out to dinner in Santa Monica wearing a velvet maxi dress, which she paired with a tailored blazer and peep-toe heels. The result is an effortlessly glam look that is perfect for a dinner date, but also works just as perfectly for a cocktail party or fashion industry event. The key? Velvet has plenty of texture and sheen, so pair it with likeminded colors to keep the balance. On that note, let’s steal Rihanna’s style! Start by picking up T by Alexander Wang’s Panne Velvet Dress ($335). To finish, throw Rag & Bone’s 42nd Street Blazer ($450) over your shoulders and then slip into Nine West’s Zebedee Heels ($49.99).
Many a celebrity has been captured wearing this striped Express dress, but we are particularly partial to the way Zoe Saldana styled it while out and about in Beverly Hills last week. By pairing it with a trio of matching accessories—specifically, a thin belt, flat sandals, and a cross-body mini bag—Zoe has effortlessly accessorized her look but stayed true to its overall casual-chic vibe. So, how do we steal Zoe’s low-key look? First, pick up a striped dress like MinkPink’s Freshmen Stripe Dress ($80) or Forever 21’s Striped Knit Dress ($11.50). Then, accessorize with Madewell’s Seven-Day Skinny Belt ($39.50), Milly’s Sophia Bag ($325), and a pair of Pour la Victoire’s Rulah Lace-Up Sandals ($117). To add a glam element to your look, do as Zoe has done and apply your favorite red lipstick.
Sometimes it is the simplest of pieces that make the chicest of outfits. For proof, just look at the outfit Ashley Tisdale wore while out and about in Los Angeles last week. We love the way Ashley has managed to elevate her simple grey dress into a major style statement by pairing it with smart accessories: lace-up sandals, a floppy boho hat, and a classic Chanel bag. The result is an outfit chic enough to wear to a restaurant, cool enough to wear to a concert, and casual enough to wear while running errands. On that note, let’s steal Ashley’s style! To start, pick up See by Chloé’s Gathered Jersey Dress ($125) or Krisa’s Asymmetrical Tank Dress ($105). Then, simply add Hat Attack’s Jenoah Hat ($78) and Joie’s Leo Sandals ($182.88) to complete the look.
