Effortless style is easy to have during the warmer seasons. Mostly because you can just put on a short dress paired with some cute flats and you’re good to go. Emma Watson put the trendy in casual while she was shopping in New York City this week. Love her pairing of the drawstring pants, a simple striped tee and cardigan. Those soft yellow loafers just add to this actress’s effortless style.

It’s spring! Let’s rejoice by busting out that denim dress we’ve been dying to wear. Aside from its epic wearability, denim is one of the biggest trends this season. It’s the one material that keeps revamping itself, fueling our obsession with new prints, washes and construction. And of course it can be paired with almost anything. I am obsessed with Alexa Chung’s pairing of the combat jacket and denim dress. Chic with a grunge twist!

The temperatures have dropped immensely in Toronto this week and Dakota Fanning’s LAX attire was the perfect look of bundled-up fashion. Fur is one of the best ways to stay warm. And one of the most stylish accessories one can possess during these harsh weather conditions. I love the combination between the leather boots and the fur; two must-haves this winter season.

Blake Lively donned a red-orange leather mini Isabel Marant dress at the 12/12/12 Sandy Relief concert held in New York at Madison Square Garden last week. The studded embellishment on the tough leather is truly something we all need to incorporate into our holiday wardrobe. Sequins and glitter are a given during the holiday season but this unique combination adds edge to a simple look. I love how she paired nude accessories with this oh-so-bright colour – a colour we normally don’t see very often in the winter time.

Colour-blocking is a must this season and reality star Kourtney Kardashian was camera ready while
shopping filming her reality show in Miami with Kim Kardashian. Kourtney stepped out into the sun in an olive green peplum skirt blocking it with a simple salmon coloured blouse. The key to colour blocking is finding accessories that are the same colour. Too many different colours can result in you looking like a clown (not cute). The black heels, bag and sunglasses are perfect for this pop-of-colour ensemble.

Finding the perfect holiday outfit can be difficult, but Kendall Jenner just made it a little bit easier! Leather is a must do this winter/holiday season and that’s exactly what Kendall donned at KIIS FM’s 2012 Jingle Ball; a high-waisted leather mini. She paired it with a casual top and a statement pair of ankle boots. Leather can often be taken as “trying too hard” but this look is effortless!

Guess who got all dolled up to celebrate Thanksgiving with her family last week? Gwen Stefani and husband Gavin Rossdale took their boys to Gwen’s parents house in Los Angeles for Thanksgiving dinner. Gwen’s nerd-chic attire is a must-do this season. The plaid shorts and sweater combo is very appropriate for the occasion; dressy but not over the top!

Just because it’s getting chilly out, doesn’t mean you can’t show a little leg! Model Miranda Kerr shows off her legs in thigh-high leather boots while on her way to shoot the new campaign for Victoria’s Secret in New York. The short dress and high boots combined together is very work appropriate. Professionalism at its finest.

Fall is all about accessorizing. And Nikki Reed’s look at the Axe event in LA proves just that. She may have opted out of wearing a dress, but she still kept things girly in her semi-sheer white top that was half tucked into her skinnies! The bright accessories added a nice pop to the simple outfit. Talk about not-too-casual-not-too-dressy, right?
We know you want the look too! Here’s how you can replicate it:

Who: Jessica Alba channels a few key summer trends as she runs daytime errands. We love that she kept her look casual with denim but dressed it up by opting for a striking fuchsia colour and heels. She balanced the daring colour by untucking and rolling up the sleeves of her patterned, collared blouse.
