One proven wardrobe pick-me-up is hanging in (on Katie Holmes
): Clutch something colorful.
It's not yet time for leopard prints (here on Kate Moss
)—to change their spots.
Stain is luxe, seductive and holding up well (on Michael Michele).
On sportswear, outerwear (and Molly Sims), the oversize check remains cheeky.
The tactic? Go tactile (like Demi Moore
). Velvet still feels as great as it looks.
Give up the frilly fun of lace? Take it from Kirsten Dunst
Still back fro the '60s (on Halle Berry
) and looking brand-new
The shiny, happy appeal of sequins (on Chloë Sevigny) hasn't dimmed.
Going retro hip in '30s argyle (on Nicole Kidman
) is still time travel well spent.
