Style maven Rachel Bilson seems to have a solution for every fashion fiasco. She recently made it a lot easier to walk a mile in her shoes with her collaboration with ShoeMint.com, and shares style picks regularly as a Piperlime.com guest editor.

So when she stopped by the Rachael Ray Show earlier this week, naturally, the Hart of Dixie star was happy to share her fashion expertise:

How to find the best boot for your size:

“The mid-calf is definitely a safe go-to,” she told Ray. “The riding boot is definitely a great everyday thing and it looks good on anyone. You can tuck your jeans into it. It’s really easy. But same with … mid-calf; I think it works. So anywhere between the ankle and mid-calf would be good for the more petite.”

How to wear square scarves:

“I think the square scarf is definitely a little trickier because of the shape and the silk and everything,” she shared. “I do like it as a purse accessory.” But it’s easy to wear, too. “If it’s in a triangle, not a square … if you wrap it around and you kind of tie it … at an angle, I think that’s kind of cool. I like it a little more funky. You can wear it square on, too, if you want to be more conservative, but I kind of like the little funk to it when it’s a little off.”

How to incorporate tabletop pieces in the rest of the home:

“I always love a pitcher as a vase, and I think if you have flowers it’s a great way to use it,” said Bilson, who has her own whimsical homeware line. “I use that usually more for flowers than serving drinks.” And other serviing pieces work well as home d├ęcor, too. “If you have a tiered dish, you can use it for jewelry,” she suggested. “I think that’s really cute if you display your rings, your bracelets or whatever and you can see it, it’s out in the open. I think it’s kind of a nice thing.”
