Lea Michele's Sophisticated Separates

While Lea's jacket is no longer available, check out similar options for both summer and fall.
The Textured Jacket
To get Lea's look, try on a crisply tailored jacket with different materials and textures like this Elizabeth and James blazer.

Naya Rivera's Bright Accents

Naya completed her casual cool ensemble by adding bright neon pumps, the perfect adds ons for both a memorable and playful look.
The Bold Add-On
To get the fall version of Naya's shoes, skip the neon without losing the bright. Guiseppe Zanotti Haircalf platform pumps stand out in a bright hue and unique ultra-feminine silhouette.
