How to Steal Cameron Diaz's Breezy Summer Style
Taking cues from stylish stars like Cameron Diaz and Kristin Cavallari, it's easier than ever to transition your spring wardrobe into the summer.
There's no better way to show off your gorgeous gams than with a pair of basic cut-off shorts (as seen on Diaz, left). To dress them up, pair them with a boyfriend blazer to keep warm during the chillier summer nights. Opt for three-quarter length sleeves, or cuff the sleeves of the jacket you have now for a seasonal update.
Under your blazer, throw on a nautical striped top, favored by stars like Reese Witherspoon. For a fun, flirty look, accessorize with stacked bangles or a straw fedora.
Add some spice to your look by trying out new colored jeans instead of classic true-blue denim. Victoria Beckham dons her own peacock blue denim leggings, but brands like American Eagle Outfitters make cropped skinny jeans in pink or white.
But make no mistake -- the item that often pulls an outfit together is the perfect pair of shoes. Flip-flops can look too casual and sky-high stilettos won't be able to withstand the fine sand at the beach, so opt for a fresh twist on the classic look stars love and select a chunky wedge, flat or peep-toe sandal. Gwyneth Paltrow favors Pucci's $995 suede sandals, but there are many chic, affordable alternatives for under $100.
To finish off your look, opt for a melt-proof hairstyle. Instead of dealing with eternal frizz and summer humidity, don't be afraid to try a trendy updo to keep your hair from falling flat. Lauren Conrad, Blake Lively and Kate Bosworth also love styles like a French-braid bun, sleek ponytail and a trendy topknot that keep you cool while looking hot.
