Sure, the term “classic” doesn’t usually apply to “Hills” star Audrina Patridge. But this jeans and sweater ensemble has the “Dancing with the Stars’” star looking like a downright respectable lady. Audrina makes it interesting by adding some well-placed accessories that add pops of color and texture. Her no-fuss hair keeps the look relaxed, and the heels amp up the wow factor. We love the bell-bottom jeans, and Audrina’s fit her bottom perfectly. Get her denim look by finding a pair with a slight bit of stretch to them. We’re also coveting her woven leather belt and the killer shoes. These peep-toe booties by XOXO with hidden platform and mesh panels are sexy and cool and can be worn all winter long with socks or stockings — and you wont believe the price!

Maje leather tee, Net a Porter, $485
Red Label Faux Leather Tee, New York and Co, $23.99
