Trend to Try: Criss-Cross Jewelry

In fact, their styles are completely different as Alba goes minimal in a white strapless dress, Milioti's statement frock boasts a bold print, and Mitchell is daring in a see-through lace LBD.

However, their subtle adornments would suggest otherwise: All three stars fancy dainty criss-cross jewelry, showing that the trendy embellishment is suitable for all fashion personas.

Since her ensemble was simple otherwise, she used the opportunity to layer on the delicate embellishments, keeping all of her accessories in the same shade of gold.

Consider these diverse styles at all different price points:
