- We’re not one to name drop but when it comes to personal style, there’s a strong level of sartorial influence when you’re famously named Kate. From Moss’s galoshes and Bosworth’s cuffed shorts, to Olsen’s massive sunglasses and the dress heard ’round the world by Middleton—everything you have or want to have in your closet first appeared on these savvy women.

Kate Moss: Effortless Cool How does she do it?! The supermodel/designer trudges through mud in this unforgettable outfit spawning a legion of copy Kates. Seven years later, pairing Hunter boots with cut-off shorts still get our stamp of approval.

Kate Bosworth: Comfort Chic The trendsetting actress knows exactly how to pull-off ultimate California style. With such a youthful approach to fashion, she’s become the one to watch at Coachella since wearing these white peekaboo pocket shorts by
Current/Elliott. So cute!

Kate Middleton: Ladylike Elegance Oozing graceful sophistication, the princess’ claim to icon status came long before the McQueen wedding gown. She first dazzled the world on the royal carpet in a timeless, blue Issa dress which not only sold out in hours but reissued two years later due to popular demand.

Mary-Kate Olsen: Easy Bohemian What distinguishes this (Mary) Kate from the others is her anti-fashion agenda. In a sea of slim-fitting, body con outfits worn by her stylish peers, she drenches herself in layers and embraces the world of over-sized. Though she appears hidden inside her baggy shorts, men’s blazer and signature sunnies, the influence of this major trend ignitor is palpable.

- Vests have been hot on the fashion scene lately. It all started a few years back when everyone and their mother could be spotted in a fur rendition. While the fur vest is still a cool look, the vest trend has evolved beyond fur and is now available in so many different styles. Vests are great pieces for fall because they add an extra layer without being too heavy. We suggest adding a vest (or a couple) to your back to school shopping list so peep our five favorite styles below for some sleeveless inspiration!

Whether you throw it over a flirty dress for summer or layer it on top of a chunky sweater in the fall, this vest will provide you with countless stylish looks! This Brandy Melville one is great because it has low cut sides under your arms allowing trendy sleeves to flow perfectly through them without that annoying scrunch factor.

The moto vest is undeniably one of the most sought after pieces around right now. This piece will instantaneously vamp up your wardrobe and make you feel like a bad biker chick.
