Just like us, sometimes celebrities—stocked closets and all—don't know what to wear either. If they're attending a specific event, they'll likely have planned out their look with their stylist and had multiple fittings. But if they just want to look polished and cool day-to-day, they'll likely still turn to their stylist for guidance. Which is why we went straight to the sources of celebrity outfit ideas: the stylists themselves.
We tapped five industry leaders, whose clients include everyone from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Kristen Stewart, to give us the details on what they advise them to wear for those moments when they're pressed for time. Their recommended outfits range from off-duty casual to night-out appropriate, and every one of them is easy to re-create and involves basics you probably already own. Ready to add a few new outfit ideas to your arsenal?

“Either a fun dress with some kind of belt and flat shoes/sneakers or a pair of high-waisted cropped jeans with heels and a great button-down shirt pushed back off the shoulders (Vetements style).” — Cher Coulter
On Rihanna: Jacquemus shirt; Re/Done x Levi's jeans; Rene Caovilla shoes.
“A slip dress, hair down, and a strong lip. Depending on the season, either sandals or stilettos.” — Cristina Ehrlich
On Sienna Miller: Roland Mouret dress.
“Vintage Levi’s, a white T-shirt, black blazer, and a pair of pumps. Quick, easy and classic.” — Jamie Mizrahi
“My go-to is always a classic sheath. An LBD works, but a fun color grabs a bit more attention. A great red, wine, and emerald green are always classic and elegant options!” — Tara Swennen
On Gigi Hadid: Victoria Beckham dress.
“When clients don’t have time to get dressed, I stick to monochrome pieces from The Row, which makes really great basics in luxe fabrics with an über-sophisticated twist. A unique version of a slip dress with barely there strappy sandals is a standard in all my clients’ closets. I think the way a girl styles a little slip dress says a lot about her.” — Christian Classen
On Selena Gomez: Atea Oceanie slip dress; Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals ($398).
