best dressed: kristen bell

two pieces are better than one.

Instead of spending days--months even!--searching for the perfect dress to wear home for the holidays, we say take a page from Kristen Bell's book and find cute separates that you can wear together. (And that might look even cooler than a dress ever would. Just saying.)

At the premiere of Frozen, Bell paired an embellished white top with a grey full skirt. She accessorized with a white clutch and black sandals that, um, are making us very jealous that it's warm in Los Angeles right now. But even if you're stuck in a cold, windy city like us, you can channel Bell's look--just replace the sandals with pumps and add a long-sleeved top instead of a tank. Because Bell's outfit is really too cool to pass up.

So try it out with our picks below, just don't forget a jacket!
