Go the Rihanna route (shown here in Stella McCartney) by swapping pants for sheer stockings. Add a cool diamond choker, and a sleek pair of sandals. Bonus points for a chest tattoo and unexpected neon mani.

Steal the show (and be comfortable, too) by suiting up with an unexpected pair of running shoes like Cara Delevingne. Bonus points for Kate Moss arm candy.

As Olivia Wilde shows, a true classic never goes out of style. Clean silhouette? Check. Red lipstick? Check. Crisp white blouse? Um, optional.

Take a cue from Lorde and pair a blown-out silhouette with slick, straight hair.

No shirt? No problem. In an Altuzarra suit, the “Inherent Vice” star Katherine Waterston proves less is more.
