Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Ashley Benson, Shay Mitchell, and Miranda Kerr. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.
Looks 1 & 2: Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell’s Maxi Dress Madness

Pretty Little Liars stars Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell were spotted arm in arm for a night out in Hollywood, both wearing eye-catching maxi dresses and cropped motorcycle jackets. Ashley opted for a pink printed maxi, accessorizing it with a long beaded necklace and woven Chanel bag, while Shay chose a teal maxi and long feather necklace.
I love both outfits because they’re great examples of looks that transition from day to night – just add a motorcycle jacket and your daytime maxi dress is ready for dinner or drinks. As a celebrity fan, I also love seeing fashionable celeb friends out and about!

There are a tons of fabulous maxi dresses in stores right now, so it was easy to find two that were similar to the girls’ dresses.
Let’s start with Ashley’s look: This pink printed dress with a high-low hemline is fun and girly, yet a cropped motorcycle jacket will give it a tough-girl edge. A straw woven clutch almost does Ashley’s gorgeous Chanel bag justice, and long layered necklaces like this beaded one add an eclectic vibe to her look.
Shay’s look is a bit more boho-inspired – I totally adore this two-tone teal dress, with its casual and breezy fit. Add a long feather necklace like Shay’s, and throw on some cool bangles and rings to make it stand out. For both looks, either flat sandals or wedges will work; it’s up to you to decide.
Look 3: Miranda Kerr’s Double Dose of Floral

Miranda Kerr is always one to look to for fashion inspiration, and her recent outfit choices have been extra eye-catching. Mixed prints have been everywhere lately, and Miranda chose a bold floral-on-floral combination while strolling around the city. She wore some high-waisted floral shorts with a loose fitting floral shirt, flat sandals, and a panama hat.
I probably wouldn’t think to mix two similar yet contrasting floral prints, but as Miranda demonstrates, this look really works, especially for summer!

Shorts, Shirt, Hat, Sunglasses, Sandals
Floral high-waisted shorts are the base of this look; these Forever 21 shorts look strikingly similar to Miranda’s, blending pinks, purples, and blues. Next, I found this lovely floral denim shirt: the cool fabric provides a nice contrast to the shorts, and the floral pattern is light so that it’s not overwhelming. A panama hat or straw fedora is a summer essential that makes any outfit appropriate for the season, while simple metallic sandals complete the look.
