In a striped top and boyfriend jeans, Gwen could very well be one of your gal pals at brunch (if only). The singer plays up her accessories — white-hot sunglasses and a holographic tote — to stand out in her basics.

DIY it 'til you make it. Gwen revealed her artistic inclinations with a painted pair of boyfriend jeans from Rialto, switching up the monotony of indigo.

Every once in a while, Gwen will swap indigo for black. The zipper detail on this pair of jeans give her look a rock-and-roll edge, while the sky-high sandals add a dose of daytime glam.

If you find yourself in a denim rut, play around with fit and crop. Stefani's shorter, baggy pair give her strappy sandals the attention they deserve.

The next step is to play with color. Stefani only needs a white tank top to accent her red, textured denim, making a simple outfit feel anything but.

When in doubt, channel a movie icon. Gwen gave her best Sandy Olsson in a form-fitting, all-black ensemble. Tell me about it, stud.

Overalls are the lazy girl's favorite way to do denim, because they basically take choice out of the equation: The top should be simple, because it'll be mostly covered, anyway. Gwen layers a gray sweatshirt under hers, with some bright sneakers to liven up the look.

A monochromatic look is all about the accessories. Gwen knocks it out of the park with a striped navy baseball cap and mirrored sunglasses. Her signature statement lip color seals the deal.
