Dress by Number: Katherine Heigl's Yellow Jacket and Nude Pumps

Katherine Heigl

Actress Katherine Heigl always looks put together. Here, she pairs a classic trench with dark blue jeans. So what makes it special? For starters, the sunny yellow color of her jacket. Then, the way she's paired it with a neutral purse and matching pumps. Our take on her outfit moves this look (which we actually first spotted a couple months ago) into fall, with a gray quilted tote from Forever 21 (it's a Marc Jacobs knockoff), and gray Cole Haan ankle boots from (what you save on the bag, you can spend on the shoes). Layer a long-sleeve tissue tee or turtleneck sweater underneath this yellow MICHAEL Michael Kors trench we found for added warmth. And since we're really digging Rachel Bilson's collab with DKNY jeans (I used to be obsessed with DKNY jeans), our version of Heigl's look includes a pair of Edie Rose skinny jeans.

Could you see yourself wearing Katherine Heigl's style?

[1] MICHAEL Michael Kors Paratrooper Trench Coat, also available in black, white or khaki,, Was $179.50 Now $118.90
[2] Skinny Jeans by Rachel Bilson's Edie Rose for DKNY Jeans,, $59
[3] Cole Haan grey leather 'Ilysa' ankle boots,, Was $325.00, Now $195.00

Despite some residual skinny jean-fear, yeah - I think this look is undeniably adorable, and would love to try it out. Especially as I've been trying to work more yellow into my collection. Thanks for another great set of designer workarounds!

This look is too adorable for words! Though I think you have to be relatively slim with a small bust to carry it off. It's still really inspiring! I love the color yellow and the adorable handbag she's carrying.

She's always very put together. I'd definitely wear it even though it's not something I'd wear ALL the time. But omg, that bag is to DIE FOR. I'm usually refreshing F21 like crazy looking to snatch up something cute before it's sold out, and I guess I must have missed that bag! I love how it's gray. So subtle!

Love the bag. Yellow seems more spring than fall to me, so maybe I'd choose a different jewel tone, but other than that this is such a great classic look!
