The 72nd Annual Cannes Film Festival kicked off with a bang on Tues., with celebs like Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning, and Julianne Moore turning out some seriously swoon-worthy looks for the premiere of The Dead Don't Die. But although the glamorous gowns and pant suits that debut at the fancy affair are likely the first to catch your eye, the ensembles celebs wear off the red carpet deserve just as much attention, too. Case in point: Amber Heard's dress and pants combo — the chicest (and easiest) spring outfit formula worth trying out this season.

Though Heard's style tends to fall on the edgier end of the spectrum (she loves leather jackets, distressed denim, and grungy combat boots), the actor opted for something much more toned-down and minimalistic for a recent Cannes Film Festival outing.

Heard was photographed on the streets of France on Tues. afternoon — and to say she looked the epitome of effortlessly chic would be an understatement. The actor stunned in a mid-length slip dress, which she wore over a pair of billowy culottes. Both pieces were rendered in the same soft cream-colored hue, making for an über-streamlined ensemble that's certain to be every minimalist's dream.

She topped off her two-piece look with more elegant essentials, including Gianvito Rossi lace-up boots (complete with a fishnet-like upper), a light-brown crossbody bag, and layered gold necklaces — a jewelry trend that's been on the rise this season, too.

Though this concept of layering a dress over pants has been around for quite some time, Heard's most recent outfit is bound to ignite a newfound love for the ever-popular combo. And luckily, it's quite simple to recreate.

If you want a more streamlined look, reach for a matching set, just like Heard's. For something a bit more casual, though, consider throwing a cool slip dress over distressed jeans.
