Off-Duty Style File
A-lister looks to steal...you know, just casually.

Consider yourself a trivia champ? Well, here’s a question for you: What three things do Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth, Sarah Jessica Parker, Olivia Palermo and Taylor Swift have in common?

Stumped? Feel free to have a sneaky peek at the answers below...

Fact #1: They’ve all starred in TV shows (okay, fine, Taylor made a guest appearance in one episode of CSI, but we’re going to count that anyway).

Fact #2: They all had nomadic lives when they were younger (well, Olivia only moved between New York’s ritzy Upper East Side and the equally affluent town of Greenwich, Connecticut – tough life, no? – but we’re classing that as a tick, too).

Fact #3: They’re all known for having killer style, whether they’re glamming it up at a red carpet event, or running around town during their down time.

While our first two fun facts are – fine, we admit it – a bit of a stretch, there’s no denying that these five frequently papped ladies know their stuff when it comes to fashion. Sure, they may work with stylists when dressing for big events or magazine cover shoots, but when these celebs are off-duty, their chic sartorial selections are undoubtedly their own.

And that’s exactly why we’ve decided to pay homage to Jessica, Kate, Sarah, Olivia and Taylor’s gold-star-worthy street style. Taking inspiration from five laidback looks they’ve worn while out and about, we’ve put together five ensembles that (we think) capture their effortless ability to look good every day and for every occasion.
