Here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we find that it is easy to pour yourself into planning an outfit for a cocktail party, or a dinner date, or a girls’ night out, but a day of running errands? Not so much. After all, there is a fine line between too casual and casually-cool. Happily, with a little help from today’s Steal Her Style story and three ever-stylish muses—Rihanna, Jessica Alba, and Kirsten Dunst—you will have plenty of fresh outfit inspiration the next time you need to plan a casual-yet-chic ensemble. So what are you waiting for? Read on for all the details on what our muses are wearing and how you can steal their style, pronto!
As the weather turns ever colder, you will no doubt reach for your favorite coat every time you leave the house, but what should you pair with it? We suggest you take notes from Rihanna, who was spotted out and in Paris earlier this month wearing a fur-trimmed coat with a printed blouse, high-waist jeans, and ankle boots. Although each piece has a basic silhouette, Rihanna’s outfit stands out because she has chosen pieces with interesting details—a fur collar here, a fun print there. The result? An outfit that easily transitions from a casual day out to a chic dinner date. On that note, let’s steal Rihanna’s style! Start by picking up a coat like One by Nonoo’s Cosima Jacket ($895) or Free People’s Fur-Trimmed Coat ($268). Then, simply pair it with pieces like Acne’s Zig-Zag Blouse ($215) and Current/Elliott’s High-Waist Jeans ($198). To complete the look, slip into a pair of Guess’s Osage Boots ($159).
Layering is definitely a key part of your fall fashion plan—after all, the weather can be so volatile! If you are looking for new layering ideas, make sure you check out the ensemble Jessica Alba wore while out and about in Brentwood earlier this month. Her outfit—a khaki tunic top, a chunky knit cardigan, blue jeans, and lace-up wedges—is perfect for a day of running errands. Not only do the pieces gel well together—they stick to a low-key earthy palette and aren’t overly bulky—but the layers allow Jessica to remove pieces when the sun comes out. So, how do we steal Jessica’s style? Start by picking up Vintage Havana’s Silk Tunic ($72) and pairing it with a knit cardigan like Free People’s Cable Cardigan ($128). Then, slip into your favorite jeans, before picking out some chic accessories; we like Kors Michael Kors’ Channing Boots ($295) and Lord & Taylor’s Snake-Print Scarf ($34.99).
If you are lucky enough to be experiencing warm weather right now, make sure you check out the ensemble that Kirsten Dunst was spotted wearing while out and about in Studio City last week. Her outfit—a nautical-striped top, a white flared skirt, and silver sandals—has a summery vibe, but that isn’t the only reason we like it. What we love most about this look is that it is composed of just three easy pieces. The key? Kirsten picked pieces that are simple but stand out on the own, ensuring that when paired together they create a casually-chic outfit. On that note, let’s steal Kirsten’s style! Start by picking up a top like Forever 21’s Relaxed Stripe Top ($12.80) or Splendid’s French Stripe Top ($41.50). Then, grab a skirt like Theory’s Arabesque Lilith Skirt ($186) before finishing the outfit by slipping into a pair of Lauren By Ralph Lauren’s Astrid Sandals ($55).
