WATCH AND SHOP: 1 Necklace, 3 Ways to Wear It

The impulse when picking a tricky dress with multiple elements like Kerry's Jonathan Simkhai number might be to play it safe with the extras. But as she shoes in her leather-trimmed suede jacket, polka-dot Salvatore Ferragamo heels and crown braids, somteimes, more is more.

A simple striped sweater and denim skirt (like, say, one of these 15 we picked out for you) can be interpreted so many different ways – but it's Alexa's '70s-in-London version (thanks to her lace-up boots and ultra-luxe Gucci suede trench) that's speaking to us right now.

A sundress and a denim jacket is pretty much the No. 1 reason we can't wait for spring to get here, and now we have a No. 2 reason: The opportunity to match the monogramming on our Madewell jackets to our too-cute shoulder bag (like her Max Mara style).

Your go-to outfit formula this spring: Find perfect white dress. Add complementary bright accessories. Repeat. (Our favorite element of Rebel's look: How cute her A-line dress looks with flats.)

Every star with an athleisure line swears you can wear sweats to brunch, but we needed them to demonstrate this concept. Enter Jenna's casual-but-chic jogger/oversized cardi combo, which gets extra points for the monochromatic accessories.

Not sure how to style your True Brown K Kylie Lip Kit? Lily goes for contrast by pairing the subdued shade with an explosion of color via her bright bomber, egg yolk-yellow bag and white heels. (And since it's a lot of look, keep jewelry, like her Established Jewelry necklace, to a minimum.)

If you're going to wear high-waisted white pants, you might as well go all-in on the nautical theme, especially when you do it as crisply as Garcelle does in her waist-tied striped top and brass-button red blazer.

If played too straight, a Victorian-collar lace top and matching midi skirt (both H&M Conscious Exclusive) could be over-the-top prissy. But a beat-up moto jacket, chunky Brian Atwood platforms and funky Smoke x Mirrors shades help keep the vibe on the “flirty and fun” side of feminine.
9 of 130
Yes, the outfit's a little basic. But there's a reason why this outfit is such a classic: It looks amazing on anyone and benefits from slight variations (see how Allison's pink lipgloss, mussed half updo and ballet flats give it a French-girl-in-the-'60s vibe?).
10 of 130
For a polished, professional look, you can't do better than this updated take on a Jackie O. coat-and-dress set: A Tory Burch blanket coat with colors that speak to the coordinating leather mini, with a little mix-and-match interest via the studded top and two-tone block-heel L.K. Bennett Mary Janes.
11 of 130
A great shirtdress with some visual interest (like the full sleeves and patterned panels of her Chanel number) is the ultimate desk-to-dinner piece – it is great buttoned up with pumps, or with sandals and a lower neckline. And in Kirsten's case, accessories make the outfit: This look is all about that burgundy purse (pulling out one of the flecks of color in the skirt) and classic sunglasses.

Having a hard time envisioning what to wear your velvet heels with now that spring is here? How about a sheath in the same color family?

The Big Fat Greek Wedding star shows just how easy print mixing can be by choosing a two-tone color palette and leaning more on textures than actual prints for contrast.
15 of 130
The quickest way to make a pair of shredded denim (like Eva's Black Orchid pair) effortlessly chic? Add a pressed white blouse, nude heels and a matte red lip.
16 of 130
If the phrase “long camel cardigan” immediately conjures up images of retirement communities, let Rosie's outfit banish that from your mind. Her ThePerfext cashmere “coatigan” is a perfectly luxe counterpoint to her low key Paige jeans and gray tee, and she further ups the glam factor with a pair of Elisabeth Bell diamond earrings and a Mansur Gavriel bag.
17 of 130
Often, “Love Her Outfit” is an ode to the moto jacket, but Ashley's proving why the varsity jacket is quickly becoming the hot topper of choice. Carelessly cuffed boyfriend jeans, aviator-inspired Westward/Leaning shades, white-soled sneaks and – oh yeah – a gorgeous, pricey Givenchy bag, all add to the studied “oh, this old thing?” vibe the jacket gives off.

TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
For those of you dying to break out your spring clothes, we’re sorry to add to the temptation. But Tracee’s oh-so-feminine dress, with its full sleeves, gathered neckline and ruffled hemline, perfectly paired with nude Soebedar heels and a pink lip, was just too pretty to resist.

And if you really refuse to wait for one more degree increase in temperature to get into your warm-weather clothes, do as Molly does and top a romantic floral maxi with a fitted leather moto and keep your shoes dark too.
20 of 130
An oversized blazer similar to Olivia's coat also lends a cool-girl vibe (and some much-needed heat) to a flowy A.L.C. sundress. Earrings in a contrasting shade add to the fun factor.

In tricky transitional weather, a moto jacket with a shearling collar, like Sophia’s The Arrivals topper, is a cool (and warm) touch for the car-to-event walk, and is easily left on a chair when you're ready to hit the dance floor.
24 of 130
Thought there was no way to make an exposed-zip denim skirt look chic? Please allow Selena's crisp white shirt, patchwork bag and snakeskin booties (all Louis Vuitton) to demonstrate otherwise.
25 of 130
An orange dress (Lily's is Victoria Beckham) is tricky enough on its own, but Lily gets advanced style points – and nails the whole outfit – by adding turquoise Gianvito Rossi shoes from the opposite side of the color wheel. A killer neutral coat, by Sally LaPointe, is an elegant final touch. Try a scarlet dress with emerald earrings or a yellow blouse and purple skirt if you're looking for a similarly opposites-attract pairing.
26 of 130
How do you make black leather leggings and a crop top less “Sandy from Grease?” Try an oversize structured safari jacket (hers is Versace) and bold statement bag (like Gigi's marigold stunner) and add aviators to the whole thing. Voilá: Instant
27 of 130
You associate J.Lo with all things short, tight and abs-baring, but she proves she can do the Audrey Hepburn thing pretty well too, wearing a luxe turtleneck and cigarette pants with Christian Louboutin shoes and bag, pearls and a just-right red lip.
28 of 130
Sometimes, a statement coat is all you need to make an outfit, and Jessica's military-inspired brass-button topper certainly qualifies. (Crisp black accessories, a simple Feel the Piece sweater and a perfectly-cuffed pair of jeans make an ideal base for such a cool piece, though.)
29 of 130
Leather leggings don’t always have to be the most badass item in your closet. They can also meet that “comfy-yet-cool” travel criteria you’re searching for, especially when worn with a cozy, robe-like coat and so-soft blouse.
30 of 130
And taking Rosie's travel outfit from relaxed to runway-ready? Sexy suede boots, a structured bag and (again) a killer coat – hers is a ThePerfext cardigan.
31 of 130
Fringe and floral are two of the things we’re most excited to wear this spring, and we’re especially loving the way Kate has combined them, teaming a prairie-print Ulla Johnson midi dress with western-inspired Christian Louboutin boots.
32 of 130

35 of 130
Just add tights to Alison’s textured mini and black pointy-toe heels (all Tory Burch) and you’ve got the perfect desk-to-dinner outfit for this Friday night.
36 of 130

37 of 130
Leave it to the style star to give 2002 style pants a totally 2016 makeover with her fitted blazer (featuring a gold racer stripe accent) and chic black turtleneck (all Tommy Hilfiger).
38 of 130
The model makes her rocker aesthetic (seen here in her super-skinny pant, lace-up Schutz boots and aviator glasses) season-appropriate thanks to the fuzzy finish on her moto-style Storets jacket.
39 of 130
With a skirt so bold and attention-grabbing, there's no need to go big on top. Just pair it with a standard black turtleneck (hers is a Wolford bodysuit), classic Paul Andrew pumps and a ladylike handbag (like this Mark Cross silver box).

If anyone can rock a ’70s-inspired look that includes Joie bell bottoms, a long mustard Topshop corduroy coat (worn over a print shirt, also Topshop), Sunday Somewhere sunglasses and a fringe bag look cool, it's Miss Penny Lane herself.
42 of 130
The best way to brighten a monochromatic outfit like Hilary's cozy sweater dress, long wool coat, black knee-high boots and bucket bag? With a bold pink pout, of course.
43 of 130
Rosie's look teaches an important less in Supermodel Style 101: A white button-up and blue jeans make the perfect canvas for bold accessories, which is why she's doubling up on her sartorial impact with her graphic handbag and fire engine red booties.
44 of 130
You don't necessarily think “boho chic” when you think “Reese Witherspoon,” but the star is totally pulling it off with her coordinated booties and fedora, teamed with a an Erickson Beamon for Draper James statement necklace (though she can't help but bring a dash of her preppy vibe via her sweater/button-up combo).
45 of 130
How does Jamie Chung make a $15 Cotton On tank look like a million bucks? By pairing it with luxe pieces like a suede jacket and leather pants.
46 of 130
Dating a rocker has given the supermodel license to experiment with her Coachella side, which she shows off in a floral wrap dress, thigh-high boots and a breezy suede trench.
47 of 130
How do you add interest to an all-black look, like Kate’s T-shirt dress and Stuart Weitzman boots combo? A belt bag is one way to do it!
48 of 130
Winter white done right! Emma’s Maiyet minidress, matching heels, cream Behno overcoat and Vita Fede jewelry all feel seasonally appropriate thanks to the scattering of sequins, luxe textures and warm red lip.
49 of 130
Pops of red (on her lips and polka-dotted A.L.C. blouse) tie together (and sweeten up) an allover leather look like Alison’s, which includes a Tory Burch bag and Jimmy Choo heels.
50 of 130
It takes a lot of guts to pull of PJ-inspired evening wear, but Whitney somehow manages by opting for an über-polished hair and makeup look (this is not the outfit to wear with sexy, unbrushed bedhead), deliberate accessories (a Devi Kroell clutch and Parade earrings) and strategic skin-showing via her strappy sandals and plunging neckline.
51 of 130
It’s tempting to wear a cozy sweater like her Tory Burch pullover with leggings and cozy sneakers. But Selena shows how the same sweater can get a dressy upgrade when worn with booties, a moto jacket and a red lip (neck scarf sassy, but optional).
52 of 130
53 of 130
And here’s an example of when contrasting prints are the way to go. A floral and stripe is the ultimate cool-girl mix, and Jessica’s succeeds thanks to the difference in print scale plus the unifying black throughout. (Silver Brian Atwood heels are bold, but a black pointy pump would work just as well.)
54 of 130
One look at Riley should convince you that army green should be added to your neutrals rotation – it looks great in a monochromatic ensemble like her Sandro sweater and matching peacoat, and mixes gorgeously with both rich tan (her mini bag) and black (like her Wolford tights and booties).
55 of 130
Sometimes this gallery feels like it can be called “moto jackets go with everything,” and Lily proves that point here: Not much can temper wide-legged vertical stripe culottes, but a perfectly-cropped topper makes them look effortlessly awesome.
56 of 130
White jeans in the winter? A total do, especially when worn with a true statement scarf like Olivia’s.
57 of 130
How do you make a gold lamé jacket low-key? By teaming it with cuffed pants, a distressed tee and layers of necklaces for a look that could easily go day-to-night (and yes, we just said that about gold lamé).
58 of 130
Sick to death of all your denim? Try a paperbag-waist trouser cut, like Julianne's Maje pair, the surprising cut of which freshenes up her timeless Paule Ka jacket, Elizabeth and James cat-eye shades and white tee.
59 of 130
The mark of a truly perfect winter coat? It looks as gorgeous with a creamy ribbed turtleneck and winter boots as it does with an evening gown. (Gwyneth's is Michael Kors Collection, if you're feeling splurge-y.)
60 of 130
Bust out your favorite T-shirt dress from summer: With a shearling jacket, cozy flat suede boots and touches of wintry colors (like her olive bag and burgundy nails), it proves to be a true all-season piece.
61 of 130
Olivia’s look starts at “schoolgirl chic” thanks to the plaid dress layered over a black turtleneck. Then she kicks it up to “siren” thanks to the patent accessories, mirrored shades and scarlet clutch – all by Dior.
62 of 130
Maude's wearing her Rebecca Minkoff marled sweater, contrasting turquoise Jennifer Meyer hoops, Blundstone boots and front-button denim skirt to Sundance, but you can cop her après-ski vibes anywhere from work to brunch.
63 of 130
A gilded, pleated skirt doesn't have to be for holiday parties only. Bella teams hers with an understated blouse and oxblood Tamara Mellon pumps, then belts the whole thing, for a polished look that's perfect for daytime.
64 of 130
Vanessa boldly wears her J Brand flares with open-toe shoes, but you can copy her whole head-to-toe classic look and stay warm by swapping in almond-toe, chunky-heel boots.
65 of 130
66 of 130
The power of outerwear is strong with this one, as she further proves in this ivory-buttoned Tory Burch peacoat which looks ridiculously downtown-chic when teamed with cuffed skinnies, Adidas high-tops and a backpack. The perfect finishing touch: a swipe of fuchsia lipstick.
67 of 130

Just when you thought there was no possible way to put a new spin on the classic button-up and jeans, along comes Katie Holmes in her leather shirt and bow-topped pumps.
70 of 130
It doesn’t get much easier – or much sexier – than leather leggings, a white top, barely-there sandals and a breezy trench.
71 of 130
Points to Malin for perfect deployment of a moto jacket and ripped skinnies. Little details (like a fringe purse and red tank) make it even more wearable.
72 of 130
Yes, she’s wearing 50 shades of gray (give or take a few) but this monochromatic look pops thanks to the ombré detail on her Armani Exchange peacoat and that tomato-red bag.
73 of 130
We've already told you time and again that it's totally kosher to wear white in the winter. Here's Jessica, wearing nothing but white, to drive that point home. Pay attention to how the weight of the fabric (a tactile knit, a soft denim) makes the whole look more seasonally appropriate.

This is your ’90s trend revival, all grown up: Straight leg jeans, a chunky boot and beanie are all tempered by luxe fabrics and a fresh face of makeup.
76 of 130

77 of 130
Tricky-to-wear statement shoes, like Eva’s ankle-tassel booties, work best when allowed to shine next to simple, neutral pieces (and yes, navy is a neutral).
78 of 130

What do you get when you combine Drake's “Hotling Bling” turtleneck with skintight leather pants, mirrored Elizabeth and James aviators and model-off-duty pristine white kicks? One seriously cute outfit.
80 of 130
Fringe, feathers and fur? It sounds like a lot, but in a streamlined silhouette and monochromatic color palette, Olivia proves it's a breeze to pull off.

You may not have tons of places to wear a velvet suit, but when you do, you'll know exactly what to wear it with: a dangerously-low buttoned top with a little shimmer, a drop necklace and chunky heels.

Lupita's playful wide-leg Christian Siriano jumpsuit, with its crayon-like stripes, gets a little dose of toughness thanks to her moto jacket and bright red nails.
88 of 130

89 of 130
We're calling this monochromatic look, consisting of layers of soft, tactile fabrics with a touch of gloss in her accessories, “luxe on luxe on leather.”

Who needs sparkles and spangles to turn heads at a holiday party? A sleekly sexy white dress (by KaufmanFranco) teamed with whiplash-inducing shoes (hers are Sophia Webster, and yes, those are butterflies) is guaranteed to be the most standout look in the room.
92 of 130
93 of 130
The move that takes this from “supermodel off-duty” to “advanced supermodel-off-duty”? Coordinating the black-and-white graphic motif of her Tod's bag with her long cardigan from Express (worn with Black Orchid jeans).
94 of 130
It's part chic snow bunny (the hat, mirrored Westward Leaning glasses and parka), part fireside hot cocoa sipper (the cozy cowlneck sweater), part urban explorer (the coated jeans and high-top sneaks) … and it's all super cool when worn together.
95 of 130
Gigi continues to demonstrate acceptable ways to wear leggings in the outside world by choosing opaque styles (like this Alo Yoga pair) to wear under long sweaters (including her chunky-knit Faithfull the Brand turtleneck) and then choosing such kickass accessories you hardly notice her pants are spandex.
96 of 130
C'mon, you know you wanna get that front-button denim mini out of the back of your closet. With a soft sweater, over-the-knee boots and an of-the-moment bag, your favorite style from high school gets an instant upgrade.

The star's brushed wool notch-lapel coat and dove-gray boots give a luxe vibe to her simple ensemble of jeans, a black tee and a Tory Burch crossbody.
98 of 130

99 of 130

100 of 130
A busy mixed-print Proenza Schouler sundress gets a chic, taking-care-of-business upgrade from a sleek tuxedo jacket and some kickass studded lace-up heels (hers are Aquazurra).
101 of 130
Leather leggings don't have to be all sky-high heels and plunging silk tops. Embrace their surprising comfort factor by teaming them with a cozy striped top, comfy sneaks and an oversized bag (but choose all black-and-white pieces to keep the vibe chic).
102 of 130
You've got your favorite ribbed sweaterdress. You've got your favorite chunky-heeled booties. Team them together with tights and a pin-straight blowout and let the '90s magic happen.

Of course, there's also this take on the look, which teams a white tee and bouclé jacket with perfectly-tailored dark wash denim and d'Orsay flats (say hello to your weekend uniform from now until the end of time).
106 of 130
You know when people tell you a to break up a skirt suit and wear the jacket with jeans? This is exactly what they're envisioning, from the sweet jeweled Draper James top to the slightly distressed Mother jeans to the ladylike accessories (a plum Salvatore Ferragamo bag and navy J.Crew heels).
107 of 130
Combining the world's coziest sweater (yep, that's cableknit and a turtleneck on her cashmere Design History style) with the perfect fall finds (a cranberry suede mini, croc-embossed Elizabeth and James bag and Ann Taylor booties), Tay may have just won the prize for “Best Autumn Outfit” with another month left to go in the season.
108 of 130
Don't put away your white jeans just yet! They look great when paired with a thick, knit sweater and heels (hers are Jimmy Choo) in a dark color.
