: “I think side-slit skirts are fun and kind of edgy, and I love when newer silhouettes come into style. I think they look fun with a tee tucked in or even untucked so the look can be more casual. I would do any shoes: heeled sandals, simple pumps or even flat booties.”
Naya Rivera: “Wide-leg trousers are a classic and chic silhouette that work with anything. You can wear them with a sexy silky tucked-in camisole and a pointed toe pump, or rock them with a fitted oxford for a menswear look.”
Jamie Chung: “I love crop tops with the combo of high-waisted anything, because it shows off just a sliver of skin. I’m not a fan of showing off the midriff à la Jennifer Lopez circa 1999. Don’t get me wrong, she’s got a killer body and knows how to work it, but for those who are just warming up to showing off some stomach, the crop top is a good baby step towards that. Remember: just a sliver!”
Ashley Madekwe: “I’m very into leather pieces. Skirts, pants, jackets, overalls — you name it, I’ve tried it. I like to look for leather pieces in unusual textures, like patent or quilted. And midi length skirts are ladylike and chic. I wear mine with high heels to elongate my legs.”

Louise Roe: “Tribal prints have been going a while now, but this spring it’s about wearing them in neons and acid tones. Rebecca Minkoff and Mara Hoffman made my favorites. I just wore one of Mara’s spring prints to the MTV EMAs. Love her designs.”
Nikki Reed: “I’m getting very excited for spring, because of the metallic accessory trend. Super shiny metallics during the day mixed with more organic elements, such as brown sandals, is one of my favorite looks.”
: “As a shoe designer, a pointy toe pump will still continue [to be in]. I think they are so classic and can be worn day or night with anything for a sophisticated look.”
