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 Olivia Palermo, Jamie Chung, and Kaia Gerber. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Celebrity Look #1: Olivia Palermo's Trendy Cool

Fashion insider Olivia Palermo looked casual yet ultra cool in a pair of vinyl pants and a slouchy, striped sweater while heading to a fashion show in Paris.

Olivia's sweater featured neon green stripes for an added trendy touch. She pulled her ensemble together with black ankle booties and some oversized flat-top sunnies.

Olivia's outfit gives an elevated, trendy vibe to fall's classic leggings-and-sweater combo.

Step your faux leather up a notch with black vinyl leggings which have a shinier appearance. Contrast them with a more casual, oversized striped sweater.

Since this outfit makes a statement on its own, keep accessories minimal with a pair of oversized flat-top sunglasses and some black ankle booties, which are a seasonal staple.

Celebrity Look #2: Jamie Chung's Feminine Meets Edgy

Jamie Chung flexed her fashionable style on Instagram, contrasting a feminine top with an edgy leather skirt.

Jamie wore a sheer polka dot print blouse with a leather mini skirt featuring silver zipper accents, along with matching studded pumps and some hexagonal sunglasses. Her look was dressy yet super cool.

Jamie's outfit is perfect for a night out on the town. Pair an edgy faux leather mini skirt with zipper detailing with a mesh polka dot print top for her on-trend look.

If rocking a sheer top like Jamie's or the one above, consider wearing a black bralette or a solid cami underneath.

Add to the edgy feel of the look with some black pumps featuring silver studs along the soles, and hexagonal sunglasses.

Celebrity Look #3: Kaia Gerber's Menswear-Inspired Ensemble

Model Kaia Gerber took on Paris Fashion Week in a menswear-inspired look with edge.

Kaia wore a pair of leather leggings with a tailored, houndstooth print blazer and some black high-top sneakers with chunky white soles. She wore a black crewneck top under her blazer, and accessorized with retro slim white sunglasses.

Menswear is a major trend this season, and this houndstooth print blazer is a great dupe for Kaia's.

Wear it over a simple black crewneck top and with some black high-top sneakers. For Kaia's modern look, opt for faux leather leggings to contrast against the classic blazer.

Complete the outfit with white skinny oval sunglasses, which adds to the vintage-inspired vibe.
