While we always enjoy seeing the glamorous dresses seen on the red carpet, sometimes we do prefer the more accessible looks that stars wear in their downtime. From Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker and Pippa Middleton layering up on winter warmers, to Diane Kruger and Selma Blair giving us a taste of summer in their pale pink jeans, here are a few of our favourite off-duty celebrity looks...

  • Ciara, 21 March

    Here's a new take on the borrowed-from-the-boyfriend look: singer Ciara went direct to source, wearing a plane print bomber jacket taken from Givenchy's menswear collection with her black leather trousers and chunky platforms.

  • Jessica Alba, 21 March

    Jessica Alba added an opulent feel to her ripped jeans and white shirt by pairing them with a baroque-inspired floral jacket, purple heels and a white patterned tote.

  • Christina Ricci, 20 March

    Arriving at LAX airport, Christina Ricci chose to follow Alessandra Ambrosio's lead and pair her distressed skinny jeans with a bold printed sweater.

  • Kelly Brook, 20 March

    Kelly Brook was not discouraged by the dull London day - the TV presenter chose to bring her own ray of sunshine with a pair of colour-pop jeans and similar patterned jacket.

  • Thandie Newton, 20 March

    We love Thandie Newton's effortlessly cool spring ensemble; despite the predominately black clothing, her turned-up trousers and elbow-length sleeves on her Zac Posen jacket show just enough skin to give her outfit a bright and breezy vibe.

  • Eva Mendes, 19 March

    Working her own cool take on ladylike style, Eva Mendes looked grrr-eat (sorry) in a Dolce & Gabbana leopard print dress, which she paired with multi-coloured sunglasses and, from the looks of things, a plaid coat. Daring.

  • Duchess of Cambridge, 19 March

    The Duchess of Cambridge went for a high-low mix of Topshop and designer label Goat for an official visit to offices of Child Bereavement UK. The stylish Duchess wore the white Peter Pan collar of her Topshop dress outside of her cosy Goat coat for a chic contrast.

  • Sienna Miller, 18 March

    We know how you feel Sienna - it's SO cold at the moment! We're taking style tips from Ms Miller and pairing a cosy, down-filled jacket with bold ankle boots, like Sienna's Chloé ones, for a high-fashion twist.

  • Sofia Vergara, 18 March

    Another celeb adding a glam twist to a practical puffa: Sofia Vergara upgraded her coat with a Chanel handbag and chunky wedge boots while out and about in New York.

  • January Jones, 18 March

    January Jones chose a simple spring ensemble for a day out and about in LA - the Mad Men star paired a multi-coloured striped knit with white jeans and slip-on sandals.

  • Duchess of Cambridge, 17 March

    It's all about the empire line when it comes to dressing comfortably during pregnancy, so we imagine the Duchess of Cambridge was happy to once again (she also wore it last year) don Emilia Wickstead's forest-green coat dress for the Irish Guards' St Patrick's Day parade.

  • Ali Larter, 16 March

    Come the summer (if it comes!), we'll be wearing tailored shorts with a slouchy jumper and shirt just like Heroes star Ali Larter.

  • Karolina Kurkova, 14 March

    A swishy high-low hem skirt, oversized black sunglasses and a slick monochrome bag: Karolina Kurkova is the epitome of New York cool.

  • Kate Moss, 13 March

    We're taking a style tip (or 20) from Kate Moss and investing in a glam evening coat - it's the quickest way to dress up jeans and a simple top.

  • Candice Swanepoel, 13 March

    She may have just got off a long-haul flight, however, Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel looked immaculate arriving at JFK dressed in minimalist white.

  • Camila Alves

    White jeans lost all those, erm, tacky connotations on Camila Alves: a matching white top plus chic black accessories equal an easy, timeless look.

  • Pippa Middleton, 12 March

    Camel tones are a favourite with Pippa Middleton and she used the colour to great affect: while a dark-coloured cape could look drab, Pip's double-breasted number instead appears effortlessly light.

  • Emilia Clarke, 12 March

    It may have been raining cats and dogs but Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke (she plays Daenerys Targaryen since you asked) took it all in her stride, wearing bare legs and gladiator heels for her appearance on The Late Show.

  • Diane Kruger, 12 March

    While pink jeans may conjure up images of shopping trips in Tammy Girl, Diane Kruger proved this was far from the case. Simply follow her lead and dress them right down with an oversized tee and a pair of flats.

  • Jessica Alba, 12 March

    Arriving at a New York library for her book signing, Jessica Alba looked the business in a bold jacket, olive-green Fendi trousers and a smart Salvatore Ferragamo tote. Imagine if this was the standard-issue librarian uniform - we'd definitely be re-training.

  • Julianne Moore, 11 March

    We're liking the actress off-duty vibe of Julianne Moore's wintery outfit - shearling biker jacket, Balenciaga handbag and Swedish Hasbeens ankle boots all duly noted.

  • Selma Blair, 11 March

    Opting for a high-low mix for a trip to the shops, Selma Blair paired her structured Hermès tote with loose layers and grungy pink skinnys.
