A glamorous look doesn't have to mean you're dripping with diamonds and draped in satin -- just take a look at the lovely Marilyn Monroe in these backyard photos shot by the great Alfred Eisenstaedt. Even in a more casual ensemble, she could be stunning and give off an air of "Hollywood glam." 

TO GET THE LOOK, start with classic lines and neutral colors in feel-good fabrics -- like cotton and linen -- that fit your body type well. Then, add just a hint of glamor with a pop of color or a purrfect print. 

Paired with simple sandals (sporting a subtle leopard-look), this particular outfit would be great for a little shopping or a light lunch alfresco. Switch to va-va-voom pumps and grab a sparkly clutch to take the look from day to a not-quite casual evening out. 

Of course, when you're rockin' the glam look, signature shades are a must -- day or night!

p.s. And a pair of diamond earrings ALWAYS adds a little star style. ;)
