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 Vanessa Hudgens, Alexa Chung and Taylor Swift. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Vanessa Hudgens's Trendy, Retro-Inspired Outfit

OK, so I had to feature Vanessa Hudgens for the second week in a row– she is on a style hot-streak! While she is consistently stylish, Vanessa has recently been spotted out and about in NYC wearing cute outfits that are right on trend.

This week, she wore these olive green utility-esque shorts by Derek Lam. Since the shorts are such a standout piece, she paired them with a simple black tank, a belt with a gold buckle, and lace-up gladiator sandals. Vanessa also accessorized with a fringe crossbody bag and the same bolo-style necklace from last week's look.

This outfit is a great way to beat the heat and look trendy. Tuck a plain black tank into army green utility shorts, and swap out the tie-belt that comes with the shorts for a black and gold one.

Lace-up gladiator sandals are both fun and functional. Finally, channel Vanessa's bold, retro-inspired accessories with round sunglasses, a fringe crossbody bag, and layered cord necklaces.

Look 2: Alexa Chung's Dressed-Down Cool

Alexa Chung looked cool and comfy in a dressed-down outfit featuring a long floral print skirt, a slouchy gray sweatshirt, black ballet flats, a black crossbody bag, and dark sunglasses.

Her ensemble expertly mixes the feminine, semi-dressy vibe of the skirt with the laid-back, off-duty look of the sweatshirt. This outfit is perfect for a casual day spent out and about– and also looks super-comfy.

You wouldn't necessarily think to pair a feminine floral skirt with a laid-back sweatshirt, but it's actually a fabulous combination. Both pieces are loose-fitting and comfortable, and this look is the perfect "weekend wear," a.k.a. the outfit you throw on while running errands or grabbing lunch on Saturday or Sunday. 

To make a fashionable statement, accessorize with dark sunglasses, black flats, a black crossbody bag, and, like Alexa, multiple stacked rings.

Look 3: Taylor Swift's Flirty Take on Classic

Taylor Swift took a classic look and made it flirty for a hot day in NYC. She wore plaid high-waisted shorts with a black high-neck top, cat-eye sunglasses, and a snake print crossbody bag. Taylor gave her look a few pops of color with red lipstick and turquoise pumps. 

While this outfit has a retro feel, the mixed prints and flirtatious cut– hello, legs!– make it modern.

To get Taylor's look, pair a high-neck sleeveless top with plaid high-waisted shorts. The dark plaid print has a retro vibe, which is complemented by cat-eye sunglasses and red lipstick.

Add modern touches with a snake print crossbody bag and bold turquoise pumps; these stilettos will really play up your legs. For a more toned-down look, switch the pumps out for some classically chic ballet flats.
