Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Usher, Isla Fisher, and Elizabeth Olsen


Celebrity street style: Usher, Isla Fisher, and Elizabeth Olsen

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 Usher, Isla Fisher, and Elizabeth Olsen. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Usher’s Mixed Prints

So, I may have thrown you guys off with this first choice! Usher? Yes, Usher. Inspiration is everywhere, even in menswear! And I have to say, this week, Usher caught my attention with his brilliant mixing of prints and textures to create a cool, urban look that I thought could be easily translated into a female version.

It’s always good to shake things up, so check out the outfit I’ve created channeling his look, mixing stripes, leopard print, and denim.

Start off by choosing a striped top with a bit of a twist — Usher’s has a print behind the stripes, and this one boasts a large, bold yellow stripe and a modern design. Pair it with a black, bell-shaped skirt worn high on your waist, and add a denim jacket or shirt for extra dimension. Have fun mixing prints by adding some leopard print shoes or a handbag. (I’m in love with these leopard platform heels!) Finish it all off with some plastic sunglasses in a rectangular shape to keep with the modern look.

Look 2: Isla Fisher’s Modern Prep

Actress Isla Fisher was spotted filming a new movie this past week, and looked super cute in a modern and trendy take on classic prep. She wore skinny jeans with a white blouse, beige blazer, a scarf tied around her neck, ankle boots, and a large weekender bag.

A blazer can make any outfit look instantly chic and put-together, and the neck scarf Isla paired with hers gave the look a prepster vibe. Finally, she added an extra touch of style with her classic leather driving gloves.

Isla’s look has a very simple base: It’s just a basic pairing of dark skinny jeans and a white top or blouse. These simple pieces are transformed with the addition of a neutral-colored blazer, some booties, and a scarf tied around your neck. (I chose to leave the driving gloves out for a more practical day-to-day look, but of course, feel free to add some in for extra flair!) A structured bag in olive green works with the neutral color palette and emphasizes the colors of the neck scarf.

Look 3: Elizabeth Olsen’s Hip City Stroll

Elizabeth Olsen proved she has the style gene that her sisters are so famous for while strolling around New York City. She wore skinny-fitting cords, a sheer, breezy shirt, a cropped zipper vest, wool floppy hat, loafers, and a large handbag.

Her look has an androgynous vibe to it which makes it a cool and atypical outfit. I’m envisioning this look as being ideal for checking out a new, hip little coffee spot in my neighborhood… or, of course, just strolling the streets of NYC!

Skinny cords are a great alternative to jeans — I know I practically live in skinny jeans, so I am constantly looking to switch things up. Next, a sheer shirt looks classic on top, but the sheerness on the bottom adds a bit of a fun touch. A cropped vest with zipper detailing makes for a hip layer, adding a new element to the look. Accessories should be kept in the neutral color palette as well, but should all have unique details — this bag has a croc print and a vintage-inspired shape, a maroon wool floppy hat also keeps with the vintage vibe, and lace-up loafers add to the hip androgyny.

    I really love all the outfits you created. The way you interpreted Usher’s look is so cool. I would not have thought of that. I would have worn a blazer instead of the denim shirt, but the look is definitely urban chic. The 2nd and 3rd looks are both so lovely.

    I love Elizabeth Olsen’s look! She reminds me of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall:

    I’d love to try out an androgynous look like that sometime. I think the hat makes it feminine and definitely would work great for spring!
