Your urgent celebrity-clothing inquiries have been pouring in over the last few weeks, and seeing as so many of your favorite looks consist of obsession-worthy fall essentials, we get the feeling you're eager to start breaking out your cold-weather clothing. Thankfully, today's quartet of tastemakers offers plenty of wardrobe inspiration with their incredibly cool ensembles. So whether you're drooling over Nicole Richie's yellow kimono or crazy about Whitney Port's cozy sweater, we'll show you the best ways to recreate their enviable looks and be on-trend all season long!
Fearne Cotton is a very busy woman. In addition to unveiling her fourth eponymous clothing collection with British high-street brand Very during London Fashion Week this September, she also has a successful mid-day morning show on BBC Radio 1. It's safe to say the British beauty has created quite the name for herself in the UK, and now, thanks to her savvy personal style choices, she can add trendsetter to her list of titles. Stepping out in London's dreary weather late last month, Cotton was snapped wearing Vince's Striped Top ($135) and rolled-up Warehouse trousers, a comfortable combination that is undeniably chic. She rounded out her look with a pair of ladylike Stella McCartney Patent Slingback Heels ($645) and incorporated a bit of utilitarian chic into her look with a Marc by Marc Jacobs New Army General Bag ($278, 212.924.0026): both on-trend selections in our book. Fortunately, recreating this look can be a budget-friendly task. While Cotton's exact top is a worthy investment, we are also fond of Forever 21's Classic Stripe Sweater ($12) and American Vintage's Stripe Sweater ($96), and believe they would look just as polished paired with J. Crew's Broken-In Boyfriend Chinos ($70). Just make sure to incorporate a feminine touch with Kate Spade's Plume Slingback Pumps ($200) and pick up Aldo's Kopacz Cross-Body Bag ($45) to achieve Cotton's military-inspired finish.
When Elle Macpherson isn't busy tending to and modeling for her business ventures¬--she founded Elle Macpherson Intimates twenty years ago and more recently, the beauty product line The Body¬--she's setting off flashbulbs with her incredibly stylish outfits. Time and time again, the Australian supermodel captivates us with her stunning, youthful looks and front-row worthy fashion choices, so it pleases us to see that you, dear readers, feel similarly. Just last month, Macpherson showed off her edgier side at London Fashion Week in a black Julien MacDonald zip-up jacket, Sass & Bide's The Lover Jeans ($233), and an Isabel Marant belt. She continued the tough and rugged vibe of her outfit with a pair of high-heeled Julien MacDonald boots. To capture the spirit of Macpherson's biker-inspired outfit, start by picking up Vero Moda's Very Biker Detail Jacket ($101) and some dark denim, like Rich & Skinny's Super Stretch Rider Jeans ($242) or Citizens of Humanity's Avedon Skinny Leg Jeans ($229). Finally, we believe Aldo's Nocar Boots ($140) are the perfect match to Macpherson's fall essential footwear choice.
What's not to love about Nicole Richie? She is a fashion designer¬--with two lines, Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960¬--a hard-working mother, style icon, and author. Plus, her September Guest Editor story was a runaway success! Over the last few weeks, Richie (with her new shorter, blonde hair) has been promoting her second novel Priceless, and we've been fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of her perfectly styled ensembles. And while all are worth noting, you were particularly drawn to the Winter Kate Kimono Butter Jasmine Drape Top ($490) she wore on Good Morning America last week. The pale yellow kimono adds a dressier element to her otherwise casual Rick Owens tank top and Erin Wasson x RVCA Chain Gang Shorts ($300), while her opaque black tights and House of Harlow 1960 Leslie Platform Booties ($275) make the outfit appropriate for fall. To satisfy your most current Richie ensemble needs, we have dutifully selected a handful of appealing apparel alternatives. Start off by picking up the essentials, like Alice + Olivia's Semi-Sheer Tank ($98) and Urban Renewal's Cutoff Denim Shorts ($28), then layer on the focal point of your look: a printed kimono jacket. Winter Kate has many suitable styles, including one of our favorites, the Eden Jacket ($225) in Plume Yellow and Plume Purple. Though her exact boots are a smart choice, feel free to check out Calvin Klein's Charlee Ankle Boots ($169) for another A+ footwear option.
There is something so appealing about Whitney Port's sartorial sensibilities: the way she creates her California casual-meets-New York chic is not only inspiring, it's also relatable. (You can always count on Port for a few fashion ideas to get you through the seasons!) Take for example, the outfit she wore just two weeks ago while shopping in New York. While her two-tone Marc by Marc Jacobs Midge Paillette Sweater ($528) and Joe's Jeans The Best Friend Jeans ($189) are definitely weather-appropriate options, her Pour La Victoire Avalon Oxfords ($253) and Patricia Nash Barcellona Saddle Bag ($198, 917.262.1805) are ideal for on-the-go afternoon outings. If you're in the market for a chunky knit √† la Port, try a similar rouge color like Free People's Morning Light Sweater ($168) or opt for something more neutral like Vero Moda's Mixed Stripe Knitted Jumper ($67). Whatever you decide, keep your look comfortable with Levi's Boyfriend Jeans ($43) and D-Co's Copenhagen Lace Up Flat Shoes ($100). And although Port selected an ombre messenger bag to complete her outfit, we think Lucky Brand's Stash Crossbody Bag ($139) is a great alternative.¬--Jessica Baker
