Are you stressing out over what to wear while yachting this summer, or what kind of silk slip dress travels best by private jet? Can't decide on the right shoes for lunch with Kate Hudson, or the perfect sunnies for shading out the paparazzi? Neither are we. But just because you're not jet-setting off to Cannes for screenings and red carpets doesn't mean you can't dress like you are.

This year's Cannes International Film Festival has, as always, provided amazing sartorial inspiration on the red carpet — and off. We've seen so many daytime looks we wanted to steal for ourselves that we decided to shop all the best looks. Sure, there are some reaches — I probably won't be dropping next month's salary on Katy Perry's Valentino romper, no matter how cute it would look on me — but there are plenty of attainable buys too, including Karlie Kloss's polished Alice & Olivia pencil skirt, Kate Hudson's $76 (!!!) maxi dress, and Linda Farrow shade after Linda Farrow shade.

Shop our favorite daytime looks below, and see every red carpet look here.
