Chris Hemsworth Changes Up His Look On This Week's Best Dressed List


Celebrities provide tons of outfit inspiration, and they can also be a great source for amazing style tips. This week, we looked to Hollywood (and our own best-dressed list) for some fashionable pointers.

Chris Hemsworth changed up his look in a bold new color, Kiernan Shipka taught us the key to pulling off a very short hemline, and Tracee Ellis Ross proved that a romper can totally work on the red carpet.

Check out our favorite looks from the past week, and let us know whose style you'll be mimicking.

  • Change up the color of your suit for a new look.

    Chris Hemsworth in Calvin Klein: An azure suit is one way to keep people on their toes. We'll admit, it's much harder to experiment with menswear, but Hemsworth did a terrific job at "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" European premiere. The rest of his look is simple, making the color of his jacket and pants the focal point.
  • Don't be afraid to go with a bright hue.

    Laverne Cox in Marc Bouwer: That color though! Not only does it make her pop in a sea of black outfits, but the silhouette hugs her every curve and ensured she was the center of attention at the TIME 100 Gala.
  • A short hemline can help break up a bold color.

    Kiernan Shipka in Valentino: Shipka has friends in fashionable places, like her pal Harper's Bazaar executive editor Laura Brown, pictured here. And clearly she's learned a thing or two from them. Her red dress is quite bright, but since it has a short hemline and short sleeves, it isn't too much.
  • Wear a suit instead of a dress to a fancy event.

    Freida Pinto in Monique Lhuillier: A suit does not need to look corporate; it can actually be great for nighttime. Pinto looks both fashion-forward and sophisticated at the "Women In The World" summit. Her low-cut black shirt and short 'do make her red carpet-appropriate.
  • An LBD is never boring if you opt for an interesting neckline.

    Xi Meng Yao: Wearing an LBD is always a safe option, but playing with shape and silhouette is an easy way to spice it up. Model Xi Meng Yao shows us that an architectural, one-shouldered neckline can take a dress from expected to extraordinary.
  • Balance a low neckline with wide-legged pants.

    Claire Danes in Narciso Rodriguez : A jumpsuit at a gala is always a bold move, but Danes achieved the right proportions for a standout look. Her neckline may be low, but it's well-balanced with her wide-leg pants, ensuring her ensemble doesn't skew too sexy.
  • A blazer can help make a romper look more fancy.

    Tracee Ellis Ross: The red carpet doesn't seem like a natural place to wear a romper, but when you throw on a black blazer and a pair of heels, it automatically elevates the look.
  • Socks are the perfect place to have fun in a menswear outfit.

    Chris Evans in Gucci: Even if you're wearing a neutral outfit, opt for a pair of bright socks. Evans looks dapper in his traditional suit, but his socks show some personality.
