From printed jeans to cool cutoffs, denim is a closet staple among celebrities, but this year Current/Elliott's cool-girl pieces reigned supreme among Hollywood trendsetters. Designers Emily Current and Meritt Elliott's on-trend styles have been spotted on almost every fashion star, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, and Rihanna, just to name a few. See which other fashionistas were spotted in Current/Elliott in 2012, then shop the exact items for yourself.
Jessica Alba debuted a punchy neon green bag and studded leather Simone jacket while wrapping up some last-minute holiday shopping in Westwood. For the rest of her look, she layered up in an open black cardigan, a gray tee, star-print Current/Elliott denim, and chunky ankle boots, then finished off with a knit navy snood and blue nail polish. Her off-duty style is perfect for a relaxing weekend, so shop our picks below to effortlessly nail Jessica's toasty and trendy look.
While out and about in NYC, Olivia Wilde worked not one but two pairs of printed Rag & Bone pants, creating two toasty and trendy weekend styles we can't wait to mimic. She worked both bottoms — one full print and the other a tamer version with printed panels — with a black flared peacoat, gray ribbed scarf, and black leather ankle boots, proving printed pants are quickly becoming a closet essential. Get a closer look at Olivia's cool-girl style, then shop both pairs to work with everything from peacoats and ankle boots to leather tops and pumps.
Alessandra Ambrosio kept the sporty trend going strong while strutting her svelte stuff in LA. The model paired printed skinny jeans by Siwy ($185) with a white tank and matching white Isabel Marant sneakers ($665). Ray-Ban aviators, a gold watch, a white beaded bracelet, and a delicate silver necklace served as cool accessories. She then added even more luxe via her gray crocodile Givenchy bag ($1,729). If it's too cold to wear a tank where you live, just throw on a cozy sweater and coat to top Alessandra's sporty chic.
Kate Bosworth took a romantic stroll with her leading man Michael Polish in LA, working the printed-denim trend in a subtle way via these Current/Elliott paisley-print jeans ($198). She kept the rest of her outfit equally simple with an off-white tee, a chain-handle bag, aviators, and these tan Topshop Western shoes ($130). If you want to dabble with printed jeans but are scared of all those loud styles out there, Kate's jeans are the perfect way to ease your way in. Score them, as well as her shoes, to work into your Fall wardrobe.
It's no secret that printed jeans and chambray shirts have become a Hollywood fashion staple, but there is one label in particular, Current/Elliott, that has celebrities totally obsessed. Sarah Jessica Parker went casual-cool in the label's slouchy boyfriend jeans in NYC, Rachel Roy balanced her bold yellow bottoms with its chambray top, while Rachel Bilson got leggy in the pocket-exposed boyfriend shorts in LA. A slew of other starlets have been spotted donning Current/Elliott's must-have denim, so find out who else has fallen in love with the brand, then shop their looks — including exact pieces — for yourself.
It's clear Sarah Jessica Parker has a soft spot for Current/Elliott's printed denim. From her gray camouflage pair to her latest fishnet-print ankle denim ($198), she definitely knows how to instantly jazz up her causal looks. SJP styled her newest printed jeans with a navy-and-white striped tee, a hot pink cardigan, and gold mary-janes while walking with her son in NYC. Score Sarah Jessica's exact printed jeans to work with a striped top and pink cardigan for a mixed-print look, then swap her tee for this red striped American Apparel sweater ($62) when the temperatures start to cool.
We have to admit, we are envious of the chic ensembles the cast of Gossip Girl must wear for work, including Blake Lively's latest look of geometric-print Rag & Bone jeans ($258), an oversize eggplant Forte cardigan ($412), and suede asphalt Rupert Sanderson boots ($1,295). The blond beauty mixed color and texture to perfection, but it was her unexpected blue leopard cami, two-tone suede Burberry bag, and jeweled statement necklace that took her onscreen style to new heights. Work Blake's exact cardigan, denim, and below-the-knee boots with a moody leopard tank to re-create your favorite Upper East Sider's street style.
Kristen Bell is never one to shy away from bold trends, and we love that she hopped on the printed-jeans craze at a GenArt event in LA. The actress completed her blue printed skinny jeans with this playful Vanessa Bruno polka-dot top ($190, originally $269), matching satin blue sandals, and bright-pink nail polish for a pop of varying color. Next time you're feeling blue — the hue, not the mood! — think of Kristen by pairing her exact top with blue printed jeans and coordinating footwear. To get her look, shop the widget below.
Yesterday she debuted JewelMint's new metal envelope bag, and today Kate Bosworth decided to hop on the printed-jeans trend by wearing these Current/Elliott ditsy-print skinny jeans ($200) while running errands in LA. Kate kept the rest of her look minimal by wearing a gray long-sleeved sweater, tan wedge sandals, and her ivory Jason Wu bag ($1,875). If you've been hesitant to try printed jeans, we recommend Kate's pair since they're one of the most subtle. You can sport them with everything from neon tanks and tees during the day to fancier tops and jackets at night.
