Pattern Play: Doutzen Kroes' Flannel and Moto Jacket Look for Less

Doutzen Kroes Look for Less
I practically live in cozy flannels in the fall and can't resist styling them up in completely different ways each time. Doutzen Kroes offers a rocker chic take on the trend in this latest look.

Doutzen paired her plaid flannel with fitted black jeans, a black motorcycle jacket, flat lens sunglasses and laced-up combat boots. Throw in another pattern to up the playfulness of the look, focussing on a coordinating color and neutrals, like Doutzen has done with her geometric tote.

Right now is the perfect time to shop since most basic pieces are on-sale for the holidays. Pick up my favorite pieces to recreate Doutzen's look below, featuring items from stores like H&M and Target - both of which have insane daily deals leading up to (and following) Black Friday!

Bodycon Beauty: Kylie Jenner's Suede Jacket and Fitted Midi Dress Look for Less

Kylie Jenner Look for Less
Bodycon styles are nothing new to the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but I can't help loving how Kylie styled her midi dress. Pairing it with a suede motorcycle jacket, white sneakers and reflective aviators she touches on almost every fall fashion trend.

The rich cognac and deep brown hues are gorgeous for fall and look great when paired with gold accents like the frames on Kylie's sunglasses. Plus, this look is so put together but still so laid back - the tennis shoes and cotton dress totally give off major athleisure vibes.

Another thing I'm loving? Kylie's exact pieces are extremely budget friendly! Her exact dress retails for just $40 from Naked Wardrobe and her Puma shoes are on sale for the holidays. Shop my other finds below.

The New Natural: Eva Longoria's Wool Duster and All White Look for Less

Eva Longoria Nude Look for Less
Winter whites are always a classic, but pairing them with on-trend pieces like over-the-knee boots and nude hues elevates the look to a whole new level.

Eva Longoria paired a cozy turtleneck sweater with sleek white fitted pants, a camel-toned wool duster, suede boots and gold metallic aviators. Styled together, these pieces are anything but basic and I'm obsessed with the clean lines and effortlessly chic style!

I can definitely see this being my go-to look for holiday festivities and each individual piece is so versatile - well worth the investment. Grab your own set of the stylish staples below, featuring pieces in plus sizes too!

All Wrapped Up: Julianne Hough's Cozy Knitwear and Ripped Skinny Jean Look for Less

Julianne Hough White Wrap Look for Less
Oversized knits are having a major fashion moment right now. Whether you favor a cape, blanket scarves, ponchos, ruanas or wraps, these pieces offer comfort and style that are perfect as we make our way into winter.

Julianne Hough paired her fringed wrap with edgy ripped skinny jeans, tortoise sunglasses, a leather tote bag and neutral-hued flats. I love how soft the outfit is in terms of color and texture, plus wearing this layering must-have while traveling is pure genius - I always freeze on long flights!

These accessories do have the tendency to hide your shape, but they can look flattering on anyone when you add a bit of balance back to the look. By wearing skinny jeans, Julianne defined her silhouette and made sure the cape didn't overwhelm her body. Plus the ripped knees add just a touch of edge.

Shop Julianne's look below, including a near replica of her creamy white wrap from Renee C that's just $46!
