Halle Berry has her off-duty uniform down to a science: mix a pair of light wash jeans with an easy tank, dilute with a slouchy tote, and tie it all together with a patterned sweater wrap. The result? Insta-cool style.
Katie Holmes has been in the thick of the boyfriend jeans craze since the day it started. She balances the style with ladylike staples so that the overall look is more "Yeah, I rocked Tom Cruise's jeans" than "Today is laundry day."
Sarah Jessica Parker doesn't shy from a lot of things—why wouldn't she pair bright pants with a purple tee? Then, she tops it off with a colorful tie-dye bag, making for a playful and eclectic look that brings us back to Carrie Bradshaw in her pre-Mr. Big heyday.
Eschew bells and whistles (like embellishment or interesting silhouettes) in favor of a simple tee in a saturated (but not loud) hue. Lavender is perfect for the occasion, neither clashing with the red jeans nor hiding from them.
Sometimes, more is more. (Though we might be biased). Pile on the color with a festive carry-all; the navajo print is everywhere this season, and the shades complement the clothing without matching too perfectly.
