We were super-excited to see Secret Life of the American Teenager’s Shailene Woodley (Amy) rock one of the hottest winter runway trends when she hit the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party in October. Television’s favorite fictional teen mom kept it sweet and simple with her look, centering her outfit around a sophisticated nude shift.

Just in time for the holiday season, Shailene shows us how to look pretty but not overdone. The low-key elegance of her ensemble is amplified by cream cut-out heels, a dark clutch, and a skinny gold belt. And forget the cold, ladies! Sometimes we must suffer for the sake of style.  Show off a flash of gam (and hold back the shivers!) with this hiked up hem. Just think of it as the perfect excuse to invest in a fabulous winter coat.

How to steal Shailene’s style without breaking the bank:
Begin with a basic nude-colored dress. Modcloth Upscale Restaurant Dress, $48; Then slip into some pretty cut-out shoes. Modcloth Woman on a Mission Heel, $40; Grab a dark clutch to hold all your essential goodies. La Regale Clutch, $20; And finish your look with a cute waist-cinching bow belt. Modcloth You Bow, Girl Belt in Gold, $11.
