Texture and trend. Use equal parts to steal Rachel Bilson’s cover girl style. In celebration of her Nylon cover, American Eagle and the magazine threw a party with Bilson stepping out as the star. She didn’t disappoint. Her outfit is youthful, yet polished; trendy, yet elegant. We just have to copy cat! Start with slim cigarette jeans, rolled just to the ankle. Layer in a simple black tee and dress up with a structured, textural print (like her cropped gold blazer). Finally, throw in some trendy accessories like a floppy fedora and another layer of texture, a supple suede clutch. Make the whole look evening appropriate with pointy-toes pumps.
1. Textile Elizabeth and James Iggy Low Rise Tapered Leg Jeans ($195)
The perfect canvas. Begin and end your look with these relaxed tapered legs. A little more polished than a boyfriend cut, the Iggy is composed of stretch denim for a great fit all day long. Roll the legs to show off your pumps or favorite booties.
2. Michael Michael Kors Metallic Silk Blend Tweed Jacket ($160)
Even though Bilson’s runway coat is off-limits for most of us, her look is not. Mimic her gold jacket with this fresh metallic tweed. Fun for office, but more edgy for night when paired with denim or leather leggings. The perfect way to shine! Straight cut with zip front.
3. Eugenia Kim Corinna Fedora ($192)
Hats are have-to-have. The floppy fedora has been spotted on star after star this season, and it’s no wonder. Adding charm to any look is easy with the addition of a fun, floppy brim. This Eugenia Kim has a chic asymmetrical brim and is finished with a double strand rope band.
4. Miu Miu Mattelasse Suede Clutch ($1750)
Bilson carried this clutch for her release party, and you will carry it everywhere, too. Supple suede is formed into a textural set of zig zags. Its rich caramel color is a delicious complement to any color palette, making it work with almost any outfit. Finished with a gold closure.
5. Dolce Vita Bella Pump in Black Suede ($190)
To the point. Finish relaxed jeans and a floppy fedora with elegant pointy toed pumps. Always a classic, a pump gives any look credibility and elegance. This Dolce Vita is created in black suede and finished with a slight platform.
