Keri Russell is known for her penchant for clean, minimal looks, which makes her the go-to girl for a certain kind of designer. Her red carpet favorites include names such as Narciso Rodriguez and Saint Laurent, but for the Berlin stop of her press tour, Russell mixed up a few pieces from the Row, Belstaff and more and still kept her signature minimalism in check.

Russell’s masterful mix of monochromatic pieces are a great summer look (even if you’re not promoting an epic blockbuster). Consider switching out of your all-black staples and slipping into this clean summer option. Keep things modern by going for off-white and mixing up textures, such as a flowing, silky top and a more matte skirt. And do like Russell and keep things simple when it comes to accessories, too, because when an outfit is this crisp, there’s no need to go over the top.

5th & Mercer Pencil Skirt

You probably have a black pencil skirt that you love, but try this great one white option, which features a super sexy zipper all the way down the back. The 5th & Mercer Pencil Skirt ($110) hits that perfect sweet spot when it comes to length, without going too long or too short — it’ll look great as a pencil midi on more petite girls. Pair it with a classic button-down for sexy secretary looks or with looser, more blousy tops for an effortless summer look that still looks polished.

If you’re unfamiliar with the label, it was started by TV personality Lala Anthony in New York. After it debuted in spring of 2013, it quickly became a favorite among bloggers, celebs and more. This staple piece is one of the line’s seasonless offerings.

Available at Shopbop.

1. A silky tank will lay better than a cotton one, no matter how soft it is. The Theory Lesay Pleated Silk Tank ($195) is a great option with wide straps and a versatile length you can wear tucked or untucked.

2. Fake a glam tan with the cult favorite Michael Kors Leg Shine ($32). It’s subtly scented with Kors’ signature scent and imparts just a hint of shimmer to get your legs looking their best.

3. We might not all be able to get our hands on a pair of croc mules, but the MICHAEL Michael Kors MK Flex Pumps ($115) can give you the look of exotic skin without the four-figure price tag.

4. Russell keeps her signature minimalism, even in her accessories. Try the Chan Luu Mixed Brown Five Wrap Bracelet ($190) for a subtle way to add a touch of luxe jewelry without a single glimmer of shine or sparkle.
