The 26-year old actress, Leighton Meester graced the cover of June’s Glamour Mexico wearing striking jewel tones. Broke & Chic couldn’t help but admire the impecable and sophisticated styling for this photo shoot. In awe, we dug deeper to see if we could imitate her look for less!

On her beauty secrets:

I’m the worst at this (laughs). I always say less is more when it comes to make up and hair.But I do believe that if you are healthy you will always look better. Sure, I say this after having eaten mac & cheese, but I try to take vitamins, eat vegetables and salads, drink fresh juices and do yoga.

On what she does outside of acting:

I love music, writing and being with my family. I love traveling. I travel a lot, but almost always for work. I am thrilled to get a vacation, all I want to do is eat, sleep and swim all the time with my family in Florida.

Style isn’t for everyone. Many girls like playing it safe with the usual “jeans and t-shirt look,” especially during the college years. It’s quick, easy and…lacks style. If you’re that girl but want to start entering the world of fashion, style and trends, then read this guide on how to appear more fashionable.

The Three Don’ts

1. Flip Flops

They are lame, sorry just lame. They work when you are in need of a pedicure in the winter, are lounging at the pool or beach all day in the summer and if you have to shower in a communal bathroom…aka “dorm life.” Other than those three things, stay away from them. Why wear something that’s unfashionable AND bad for your feet?

Opt for a pair of sandals instead! They’re a much better alternative, and are just as easy to put on as flip flops.

Gladiators will still be hot for Summer 2012!

Try out a sexy pair of T-strap or Thong sandals.

If you must wear flip flops, get a pair like these ($14.80 at F21). They still have style & appeal to them!

2. Uggs

Yes, they are comfortable, but so are lots of other boots. In the fashion world, Ugg stands for Ugly. Unless you live in Greenland, don’t wear them. Opt for a cute pair of lace up or moto boots instead!

Motorcycle boots have a tough yet classy look to them.

Unlike Uggs, moto and lace-up boots work in the summer too!

Rachel’s lace-up boots would look adorable with a dress.

3.  Denim Skirts

Let’s put it this way: if you wore it when you were in middle school, don’t wear it now. Instead, try a cute maxi or bodycon skirt! They are trendy, fashionable and just as easy to put on as your 12 season old denim skirt from Old Navy.

The Three Do’s

1. Accessorize

Accessories are such an easy way to make any outfit more trendy. Rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces…they all work. Just stay away from the bling.

2. Red Lipstick

It’s a quick way to look fashionable and sophisticated. Red will never go out of style. Go to your local e.l.f. retailer and get a striking red for only $3!

3. Vintage

Worried about what’s in this season? Not sure if your outfit will work for the event you’re going to? When in doubt, wear vintage! Not all vintage has to be expensive, and sometimes you can even find a vintage treasure at a thrift store for under $10!
