Hello SOTGC community,
Most women have a celebrity crush: that one star that is always impeccably dressed and styled, and seems to have it all together. But just because you’re a regular woman, on a budget, doesn’t mean you can’t dress like your favorite celebrity. Here are a few tips that can help you achieve the star look of your dreams at a fraction of the price:
1. Comfort is king. Celebrities are often spotted in high heels. Actually, so often, that we sometimes wonder if they’re superhuman. And then comes the exceptions: the ladies that show they’re just women, like us, and they can’t last in gorgeous but uncomfortable Louboutins for more than an hour. This year at the Golden Globes, Emma Thompson took hers off on stage, and went barefoot. Kristen Stewart is famous for carrying Converse to change in to at fancy events, and Jamie King has recently been spotted in Vans, carrying her nude Pradas. Meanwhile, low heels and flats become more and more attractive, and we recommend these affordable Wallis trim court shoes, Steven pumps, Jeffrey Campbell flats and Michael Michael Kors ballerina flats.
2. The Canadian tuxedo. Even the most famous people out there can recognize good, casual style when they see it. The best part about the Canadian tuxedo, aka an all denim look, is that you can easily dress it up or down. Emma Stone’s romantic stroll style is comfy as can be, with shorts and flats, while Alessandra Ambrosio’s shopping look is more put together with brown leather accessories. Our budget picks: Topshop chambray, Mango jeans & Jane Norman flats.
3. The capsule wardrobe. If we were to name one celebrity who rocks a minimal wardrobe, that would be Alexa Chung. Yes, she does have those awesome kitty pumps and Chanel bags – heck, she even has a Mulberry bag named after her ‑ but she wears them nonstop, getting her bang for the buck! The secret is to invest in timeless, quality accessories, which you will wear over and over. The most affordable designer accessories are sunglasses, but you can also look for bargains on Ebay, Etsy and in thrift stores. Our budget-friendly choices are Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses, pre-owned Charlotte Olympia pumps, pre-owned Mulberry bag.
