Rachel Bilson: The Ultimate Fashionista

Since Rachel looks so chic all the time, she’s been lucky enough to be asked by DKNY Jeans to create a clothing line for them! Her new line is called Edie Rose and is now in major designer stores! But enough of that, since most of us probably won’t be able to afford her stuff! Let’s just see what we can copy at least.

Rachel’s Must-Haves

Her aviator sunglasses – she rarely goes anywhere without them!aviator sunglasses
Her leather jacket – “I like to throw it over a preppy dress to edge it up!” says Rachel in the Summer/Fall issue of Cosmo Style.

Skirts – “I want a few short ones for fall that I can wear with tights and chunky boots.”
Scented Candles (okay maybe not fashion, but what the hell) – “If people don’t know what to get me as a gift, I always tell them candles. My favorite kind is Kobo in the Asian Grove scent. It makes the whole house fragrant,” says Rachel.
Yellow: “I’m so into yellow right now, and this dress was inspired by one I once wore. You can pair it with a neutral shoe or a contrasting color such as green. And I’m now scared to wear yellow and black together.”yellow Edie Rose dress

Shrunken blazer: “Wear it with tux pants and a vintage tee for an adrogynous look. I love clothes with a male influence.” (Shrunken blazer – 1st one in the picture)edie rose

Big bracelets: “I’ll put on one cocktail ring or big bracelet and that’s it. Wearing a single piece makes more of a statement. Juicy has some really fun bracelets that I love.”animal print bracelet

Rachel’s Style Rules

1. Choose dark jeansdark skinny jeans

“They’re so easy to dress up. I think skinnies look really flattering with heels. Corpus has a good pair that has some stretch.”

2. Recycle trends

“It’s funny how things are coming back in again so quickly – for example, one-shoulder shirts were big just a few years ago and are now back in style. For that reason, I never throw anything out, and I like to wear things when they’re sort of just coming out of being really cool.”

3. Throw on a scarffringe scarf

“I love scarves – I have so many. If you have a simple dress and a great scarf, you have such a good outfit. I just got an amazing silk Chanel scarf that has stars on it as a gift.”

4. Mix and match

“I’m a big fan of mix-matching…taking pieces from certain outfits and pairing them with others. It allows you to create your own look.”

5. Dress down at night

“I don’t like dressing up unless I absolutely need to. For a date, I wear a tee shirt and jeans with a great pair of superhigh heels. I’ve had to train myself to walk in them.”
