So, what did you do this weekend? I worked, slept, and caught up on some TV. Snoozeville, I know. But, unsurprisingly, the past few days were way more interesting over in celebrity-land, with a slew of A-list industry events, glamorous parties, and high-profile film premieres. In other words: loads of red carpet eye candy and plenty of fall fashion tips all around. Let’s take a look at five of our favorite ladies who made appearances over this oh-so-fabulous weekend:
How to wear pretty prints in the fall: Newlywed Lauren Conrad brought her summery floral patterns into autumn with darker hues, a long-sleeve silhouette, and a more substantial texture on the flared skirt. Granted, she was in warm and sunny Southern California at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, so strappy sandals were in order. But brown ankle booties would work just fine in cooler climates.
How to wear a leather dress to a work event: Chrissy Teigen made her leather dress appropriate for a networking gathering at the Variety Power of Women Event, presented by Lifetime. Caveat: She is Chrissy Teigen, so her leather dress is of the va-va-voom variety by Cushnie et Ochs. But you could opt for a less body-con but still below-the-knee version in the same rich oxblood hue. To temper the sultriness of the dress, just throw on a neutral-hue blazer, like Chrissy’s Vivienne Westwood, and start passing out those business cards.
How to wear a lace dress in cooler weather: At the same event, Reese Witherspoon stunned in a red-and-black lace embroidered dress by Dolce & Gabbana. The darker, wintry colors and the three-quarter-sleeve silhouette brought the delicate lace dress right into fall.
How to wear a crop top in the fall: Crop tops were de rigueur in the sweltering summer, but you can bring the midriff-baring look all year round. Jamie Chung brought her cropped look by Tanya Taylor into mid-October with a below-the-knee skirt and short sleeve, mock-turtleneck silhouettes and a darker color palette. The 3-D embellishments are festive enough to easily recycle this adorable set for holiday parties too. And we love party outfits we can rewear.
How to wear sparkle but not look over-the-top: As if Emma Stone could ever overdo anything. At the closing gala for the New York Film Festival, the actress looked perfectly amazing as usual in a dazzling Jason Wu dress.While the two-tone piece boasted allover sequins, the blouse-y silhouette and the neutral green hues kept the look from veering into glitzy territory. Plus, Emma’s styling is always on point: subtle but modern jewels—a barely there Melinda Maria ring and a cool Ana Khouri ear cuff—and elegant Aquazurra crisscross ankle pumps. Flawless.
