Summer can be tricky when it comes to fashion. On the one hand, you probably have a social calendar jam-packed with events, and accordingly, you need a slew of new outfits. On the other hand, who wants to think about fashion when you could be having fun in the sun? If this fashion fix sounds familiar, you will be pleased to know that today’s Style Spy story is here to help! Yes, dear readers, today we have the scoop on what four of our favorite stylish stars—specifically, Nicole Richie, Kate Bosworth, Liv Tyler, and Sienna Miller—are wearing this summer and how they are wearing it! So, if you are ready for a fresh batch of summer outfit inspiration, read on and make sure to take notes as you will find plenty of ideas in today’s Style Spy story!
A floral dress is the perfect piece for summer, which is why we love this look from Nicole Richie. Nicole was spotted out and about in West Hollywood last week wearing a floral dress, a studded denim vest, and chunky black wedges. By pairing her dress with tougher elements—namely, the vest and wedges—Nicole has toned down the femininity of the dress and stayed true to her boho-meets-rocker aesthetic. To put together an equally cute look, pick up Tinley Road’s Floral Button Front Dress ($34.99) or Angel Eye’s Floral Dress ($34.48) and pair it with Topshop’s Sleeveless Denim Cropped Jacket ($65) and House of Harlow 1960’s Veronika Wedges ($233).
It is no secret that colored denim is having a major style moment this summer, so make sure you take style notes from Kate Bosworth. Kate was spotted out and about in Silver Lake earlier this month wearing pink denim shorts, a lightweight sweater, and suede ankle boots. We love the cool yet casual vibe of this outfit—it would look equally at home on the beach, on a vacation, or at the flea market. Inspired? Pick up Siwy’s Camilla Cutoff Shorts ($152) or J Brand’s Cut Off Denim Shorts ($143) and pair them with Free People’s Laguna Coast Pullover ($88). Then, simply add Loeffler Randall’s Suede Ankle Boots ($395) and you are all set!
Ever-stylish actress Liv Tyler was recently spotted out and about in New York City wearing a silk print dress by DKNY and red Christian Louboutin peep-toes. We love this look for two reasons. Firstly, it is chic and sophisticated, which makes it perfect for a classy cocktail party or stylish summer event. Secondly, it is decidedly easy to put together, which is a must in summer! To try this look for yourself, pick up Paul & Joe’s Polka Dot Silk Dress ($535) or MM Couture’s Polka Dot Dress ($88) and pair it with Christian Louboutin’s Devalavi 120 Suede Peep-Toes ($705) or Nine West’s Zebedee Peep-Toe Platforms ($48.86).
Sienna Miller is blessed with the innate ability to look stylish at every turn and the ensemble she put together for the French Open earlier this month—specifically, a cream shift dress, studded heels, and a floppy hat—is no exception. Although Sienna dressed up for the occasion, she gave the ensemble her own personal twist by adding a floppy hat that stays true to her boho roots. The result? A très chic ensemble! If you love this look, pick up Nanette Lepore’s Spun Around Shift Dress ($167) or ASOS’s Shift Dress ($77.58) and then pair it with Jean-Michel Cazabat’s Chaka T-Strap Sandals ($207). To finish, add Pins & Needles’s Straw Floppy Hat ($29).
