At the Hollywood premiere of her film Sex Tape with co-star Jason Segal, Cameron Diaz stepped out in an ensemble which was decidedly out of character and unexpected, but incredibly trendy nonetheless. The actress eschewed more laid-back ensembles in favor of a gold dot-embellished jumpsuit, which despite its offbeat, unusual look, actually strikes the perfect note of relaxed elegance. Though the jumpsuit is long sleeved, it remains a chic choice to beat the summer heat thanks to chiffon fabric and slightly loose fit. Diaz created further drama with her ensemble by throwing on a pair of t-strap heeled sandals, a thick gold bangle, and an ultra-au courant orange lip, creating a statement look that's deceptively simple.
If the look isn't yet calling your name, remember that the ensemble can be made instantly more casual by exchanging heels for sandals, throwing on a watch instead of a bangle, and trading persimmon lips for a swipe of nude gloss. With one simple piece, Diaz could easily go from the office to drinks to her next red carpet with the greatest of ease. And really, isn't ease what summer dressing is all about? Read on for the four items you'll need to capture Diaz's contemporary look.
1. Black Jumpsuit
Get a similar style to Cameron's jumpsuit with Anne Taylor's Spaghetti Strap Jumpsuit; for a work-appropriate look, throw a blazer on top.
2. Gold Bangle

3. T-Strap Heels
You don't need a statement heel with this ensemble, simply a pair of elegant t-strap heels like Jessica Simpson's Carys Heels.
