    Tip: Contrast white-on-white with sultry pops of red.

    Jamie Chung

    Tip: Throw on a bright blazer to instantly spring-ify your look.

     

    When in doubt, add a bright blazer! That’s what Chung did at the Marchesa S/S 15 Bridal collection show in New York this month, layering a red Reese + Riley blazer over her white camisole and Elizabeth and James Heyden Mesh-Overlay Skirt ($295), and the results were nothing short of chic.

    Mango Frayed Edge Blazer ($110)

    It’s the subtle details—frayed hems and a polka dot lining—that give this blazer its appeal.

    Camilla Belle

    Tip: Double up on lace for an ultra-feminine look.

     

    To celebrate the launch of Jimmy Choo’s CHOO.08 collection earlier this month, Belle opted for a look that was rich with texture with a slate gray Monique Lhuillier lace top and black pencil skirt from the brand’s fall collection. 

  • 12 of 29

    Reiss Della Lace Jersey Top ($130)

    When you’re not dressing up this feminine top with a pencil skirt, give it the weekend treatment with denim shorts and bright sandals.

    At the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, Alba offered a subtle way to try the crop top trend in a white Piece d’Anarchive top and high-waisted Kenzo Pleated Neon Neoprene Mini Skirt ($505, available in Coral), finishing the look with Bottletop by Narciso Rodriguez’s Jessica Hand-Braided Clutch ($1000) and Jimmy Choo Abel Woven Point-Toe Pumps ($688).

  • 15 of 29

  • 16 of 29

    Elizabeth and James Upton Crop Top ($225)

  • 17 of 29

    Miranda Kerr

    Tip: Mix varied tones of the same hue for a directional result. 

     

    Kerr added further intrigue to her denim-on-denim look with Etoile Isabel Marant’s Fara Raw Edge Denim Coat ($620) and Frame Denim jeans with the addition of a pastel blue button-down shirt and blue suede Manolo Blahnik heels.  

  • 18 of 29

    Leaving The Late Show with David Letterman two weeks ago, Decker showed off her tomboy side in an Emilio Pucci jacket and dress paired with Christian Louboutin black oxfords. The tailored look is an unexpectedly chic alternative to a cocktail dress.

    Tip: Protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays with a wide-brim hat.
