Now that we're a few days into the lovely month of March, we have officially entered a season of transitional dressing. If you're unfamiliar with the phrase, please know that we're referring to that tricky limbo time when the season has officially changed, but the weather has not. We have received many inquiries about this problematic style situation and are happy to help, dear readers! For today's installment of What Was She Wearing: Answers!, we specifically collected stylish celebs (like Mandy Moore and Kate Bosworth) who are clad in appropriate seasonal segue attire!
At WhoWhatWear.com, we appreciate Mandy Moore's simple and understated style, as it is relatable without being dull. The singer/actress also happens to be a reader favorite, so we keep a detailed account of all her outfits! Just a few weeks ago, Moore was spotted wearing The Row's Schoolboy Jacket ($1100) over a vintage Missoni dress, Repetto flats, and Cutler and Gross 0862 Sunglasses ($425, special order from Selima Optique Soho, 212.343.9490), while shopping at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills. We adored her whole ensemble, but perhaps our favorite element is the Alexander McQueen Messenger Bag ($1409) she carried. To get Moore's look, try layering J. Crew's Super 120s Jacket ($230) over Banana Republic's Cap-sleeve Sweater Dress ($175) and carry Gryson's Hannah Bag ($675).
Alexander Wang has an extensive celebrity fan base, but of all his famous supporters, Lindsay Lohan is definitely one of the most devoted. She consistently picks the designer's industrial, stylish pieces and was recently spotted running errands in Beverly Hills wearing Wang's Denim Leather Motorcycle Jacket ($1495). As for the rest of her outfit, Lohan chose a simple black t-shirt dress, Chloe's Buckle Boots (sadly sold out, as they are from the fall 08 collection) and a Lanvin Happy PM Bag ($1760, available in black). For a budget-friendly take on Lohan's outfit, we suggest wearing Charlotte Ronson's Moto Jacket ($279) over your own t-shirt dress, paired with French Connection's Patent Quilted Oversized Clutch ($74) and Pour La Victoire Rebecca Boots ($444).
As dedicated WhoWhatWear.com editors, we made thorough rounds at New York Fashion Week, took notes on the best collections, and scouted next season's trends. While there, we also kept tabs on the celebrity style we witnessed, like the Carrie Bradshaw-inspired outfit worn by Whitney Port. The City starlet charmed in a double-breasted Diane von Furstenberg Staedtler Jacket ($596) and floral frock, paired with purple Marc Jacobs booties and Lia Sophia Deco Lux Earrings ($575). Construct your own version of Port's ensemble with DVF's Hazelle Chiffon Ruffle Dress ($345) or Elizabeth and James' Floral Boudoir Dress ($495), and Steve Madden Roarr Boots ($110).
To conclude our stylish set for the day, we have WWW golden girl-Kate Bosworth. Last month, the actress turned up at Joan's on Third in an outfit that piqued your interest, so we sleuthed out the details about her casually chic look. Bosworth chose a bleached and thrashed pair of J Brand Pencil Leg Ripped Tie Dye Skinny Jeans ($218) and simple light gray sweatshirt as the foundation of her outfit. She accessorized with a vibrant, carmine pink Chloe scarf, Maison Martin Margiela Petrol Blue High Heel Pumps ($494), and a Dorothy Shopper Bag ($795) by Alexander Wang. You can accomplish a similar rendering of Bosworth's outfit with Topshop's Cloud Wash Jeans ($80), American Apparel's Unisex Tri-Blend Long Sleeve V-Neck ($30) and Circle Scarf ($28) in Fluorescent Red, Cheap Monday's Beach Bag ($25) or Foley + Corinna's Washed Mid City Tote ($444), and Type Z's Suede Markita Heels ($75).-Jessica Amento
