Kate Bosworth's Graphic Sweater and Leather Skirt Look for Less

Kate Bosworth wears Etro's colorblock graphic sweater with an Anine Bing biker jacket, Frame leather mini skirt and moto boots.
While I plan on wearing sweats while traveling this Thanksgiving, Kate Bosworth is making me reconsider. One of my favorite fashion muses kept it edgy while traveling through LAX in a leather biker jacket and leather mini paired with Etro's graphic colorblock sweater.

Style Your Track Pants Like Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie Huntington Whiteley wears track pants with heels and a blazer.
With a crisp blazer and strappy heels, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley shows us the fashion-forward way to wear track pants in this sleek outfit she sported a few months back at LAX.

By keeping the palette neutral and the accessories simple, she's convinced me that you could wear wide leg track pants to the office or a cocktail party, making these a versatile wardrobe addition. I could even picture the supermodel wearing this elevated athleisure outfit with her current baby bump!

I was so excited to find this near identical pair of pants at Express (on sale!) - and even more excited to see how blogger Sydne Summer wore her pair with a white blouse and blazer! If you love the look, read on to get all the pieces, each under $100...

Nicky Hilton's Camel Coat and Converse Sneakers Look for Less

Nicky Hilton wears a camel coat and white Converse while out and about in New York City.
Yesterday was downright frigid here in Connecticut, so Nicky Hilton's camel coat and Converse is definitely seasonally appropriate.

The star kept warm while out and about in New York while harkening to spring with her lighter wash skinny jeans and on-trend white sneakers.

You could either pull your wool coat out of hibernation to recreate this look, or update it for spring with a must-have classic trench coat instead.

All my finds are under $50, including Nicky's shoes, so I added a "splurge" handbag because it's way less that her designer bag and totally worth the investment to elevate all your outfits!
