Style setter

Actress Dree Hemingway of the film “Starlet” has a cool-girl vibe that's on trend, according to People Style Watch. Here's how to do it:

Have fun with texture, color and print: Tweed, ruffles, sequins, bold hues and pretty patterns lend interest to dressy and casual looks.

Add one surprising accent: Whether it's a global-inspired necklace or a printed clutch, unexpected extras make her outfits standouts.

Finish with eye-catching heels: Mint-green Mary Janes, bold black ankle straps and metallic booties up the wow factor.
