Style Tips: Spring 2011

Whether you are going on a blowout shopping spree this spring, or you’re just planning to shop from your own closet, chances are you need some fresh outfit inspiration. Happily, today’s Style Tips story is dedicated to providing you with just that. That’s right, dear readers, we have rounded up four inspirational looks from four of our favorite muses—Kate Bosworth, Gaia Repossi, Leighton Meester, and Kate Moss—as well as a shopping list of items you will need. Read on for all the need-to-know details and make sure you take notes as there is plenty of inspiration in today’s Style Tips story.

1. Experiment with bright bursts of color.
It is no secret that bright hues are a major trend this season, but they can be tricky to pull off. We love the way actress Kate Bosworth has styled her coral Calvin Klein Collection dress with simple black ankle boots. By staying true to her minimalist aesthetic, Kate has created a decidedly modern and ultra-chic look. To try this effortless look for yourself, pick up ASOS’s Cutaway A-Line Tailored Shift Dress ($71.72) or ASOS’s Clean Shift Dress ($71.72)—both dresses come in a gorgeous orange hue. Then, simply add Topshop’s Angular Pointed Shoe Boots ($190) and you are ready to go.

2. Add a hint of lace to everyday denim.
Although the spring runways were teeming with pretty lace dresses, we wanted to offer an alternative option that feels a little more low-key, which is why we turned to jewelry designer Gaia Repossi for inspiration. Gaia gave a simple jeans-and-tee combo a luxe twist by adding a lace-embellished bed jacket. The result is an outfit that can be worn day and night. Inspired? Pick up Hinge’s Silk Kimono Cardigan ($88) or ASOS’s Lace Beaded Cape ($125.51) and pair it with a grey tee and Gap’s Always Skinny Surplus Jeans ($69.50). To finish, add a pair of Ash’s Honey Ankle Boots ($200).

3. Don’t say no to eye-catching prints.
If there is one thing we love about actress Leighton Meester, it is her fearless sense of style—she rarely shies away from an eye-catching print or an interesting silhouette. How does she make it work? By balancing smart accessories with self-confidence and a playful approach to fashion, Leighton manages to stand out from the crowd and look amazing doing so. To try out this cool look, pick up Leighton’s exact dress—Marc Jacobs’ Polka-Dot Knit Dress ($1,355)—or grab ASOS’s Variegated Stripe Body-Conscious Midi Dress ($53.79). Then, slip on a pair of Topshop’s Logan Metallic Platform Sandals ($160) and walk out the door.

4. Pair 1970s-inspired pieces with modern attitude.
British model Kate Moss has her personal style down cold: mix 1970s bohemian pieces with a rock and roll vibe, add a heavy dose of cool, and then mix in plenty of modern attitude. As complicated as this cocktail may sound, it is easier than you think. Kate’s aesthetic revolves around key pieces such as a hat, an oversized fur, or a great pair of boots. With that in mind, pick up a few basics—specifically, black dressy shorts and a black tee—and then add pieces such as Elizabeth & James’ Tweed Dylan Jacket ($465), Ash’s Illusion Suede Booties ($230), and ASOS’s Wide Brim Fedora ($21.52).

    Oh yes, am slightly obsessed with that hat of Kates. Some more tips on how to wear (especially if you are wearing it in the playground) here.
