Kristen Wiig, Blake Lively, Kate Bosworth, Kate Beckinsale, Bella Thorne (Getty)Some celebrity styles aren't exactly universal (here's looking at you crop-tops and mom jorts!), but there's one outfit idea practically every star uses that's way easy to replicate. Promise.
Planning to wear slacks with a button-up to work? An old LBD to dinner? Perhaps just a T-shirt and jeans for a lunch date? If you're looking to mix things up, try this: simply toss on some brightly colored footwear. You can choose flats or heels, sandals or pumps, orange or blue, neon or pastel—all are foolproof.
The singular pop of color is confident and stylish without being obnoxious. I've actually used this trick myself on many occasions to dress up not-so-dressy pieces. I'm not even big on accessories! A statement necklace once in a blue moon is all I can muster. When using the tactic, I prefer a classic shoe shape like a stiletto pump or kitten heel and tend towards pinks and reds. There's really no better way to recycle outfits or amp up your basics.
