Looking for an easy way to add edge to an otherwise plain outfit? Take a cue from Rihanna and Katharine McPhee, who opted to punch up their ensembles with bold moto jackets.

The pop star was snapped wearing a hunter green leather jacket when she landed in Tokyo last week, instantly upgrading her T-shirt, jeans and sneakers.

The Smash actress was spotted in a similar coat, but in a rich blue hue, with a striped midi-dress and cool sneakers on Tuesday in New York City.

If a Crayola-colored coat can transform two mega-stars’ outfits from relaxed to effortlessly cool, we can only imagine what it’ll do for your wardrobe (and ours!), too. Just another trend we’re excited to try this fall.

Which Star's Style Does Katharine McPhee 'Love, Love, Love'?

Time to start a fan club: Katharine McPhee can be added to the list of stars who covet a certain actress’s stellar sense of fashion.

“I love Kate Bosworth’s style,” the Smash star tells PEOPLE. “She always looks classy, but her style [changes]. It’s sometimes hippie, sometimes hipster-edgy and sometimes it’s like a classic Chanel tweed dress paired with a purse. I love, love, love her.”

Want to steal either star’s style? McPhee recommends one designer item worth the splurge: a great bag.

“I would say the most classic piece you can probably buy — even if you get it vintage — is a Chanel shoulder bag,” McPhee shares. “You can dress it up, dress it down — you can wear [it] with jeans, shorts, button-ups.”

Another reason why she loves the iconic purse? It prevents her from carrying around too much junk. “They usually can be a good size where you can fit everything you need, but you’re not going to take excess things,” she explains. Tell us: What was the last big-ticket item you splurged on?

Katharine McPhee has the guts to sing in front of thousands of people, but she just can’t seem to work up the courage to step out wearing a certain item.

“I love those really short short-shorts … the high-waisted ones everyone’s wearing,” she said, but added, “I’m not quite daring enough.”

Speaking to PEOPLE Tuesday at Tide’s unveiling of its artistic rendition of the American flag in New York, McPhee admitted she did have a pair in her arsenal, though. So why hasn’t she broken them out yet? “Mine are a little bit too short!” she shared.

The Smash star — who performed at the Tide event wearing a white jumpsuit by The Hellers, a light-pink Theonne blazer and red Brian Atwood pumps (above) — said New York (where her television show is shot) is constantly inspiring her.
