Lea Michele finally understands something important about fashion – not everyday is a pageant. And more importantly, when you’re carrying a bag like the Givenchy Nightingale (at Barneys New York for $2,020), you don’t need much else. Seen in LA on a recent shopping spree, Lea shows how to shop effortlessly. You don’t want to wear anything so complicated that it’s a pain to try on new pieces. A great pair of fitted (yet not so tight that you can’t get them off without a fashion squad!) jeans like Victoria Beckham’s stovepipe blues (on Shopbop for $285) and simple black Vera Wang Lavendar flats (at Neiman Marcus for $175) are essential. To keep things exciting, top it off with a long-sleeve lacy number from Free People (at Free People for $48). And don’t forget to pop a pair of Ray-Ban aviators (at Nordstrom for $145) into your Nightingale for the paparazzi. What do you think of her off the red carpet look?
