Celebrities can make rugged jeans look fashionable and boring tank tops look superbly chic. In fact, Lindsay Lohan knows how to look great even when wearing a tissue tee and pairing it with boots. You could also take a cue of Heidi Klum’s outfit when she spent a day out with her kids wearing baggy pants, tank top, and fedora. If you take a good look as to how these celebs wear, they’re not actually wearing Valentino or Chanel creations every day, but they just know how to mix and match and add oomph to these seemingly outrageous outfits to look stylish. Here’s what you can do to dress like them without breaking your bank:
Invest on high quality items – Inventory sales, quarterly sales, or mid-year sales mean only one thing – time to splurge on high quality items at low prices. Department stores, boutiques, and even vintage shops all have their own year sales, which could actually help you have those gorgeous cardigans or floral pants from TopShop at super low prices. You could also do online shopping at sites that offer cheap apparels like amazon.com, topshop.com, and the likes. All you have to have is time, patience, and, of course, a bit of hundreds to splurge on the items you like. Shopping for trendy items at high quality and in low prices once a year could not really hurt your budget as long as you save for it.
Don’t forget the basics – We all want to add color to our closets, but let’s all face the fact that not all of us could pull off those tangerine skater skirt that Solange had during a recent awarding ceremony or Rihanna’s outrageous blue dyed pair of pants. Go for blacks and whites, mix it with a little bit of neutral-hued pieces, and you’re good to go. You can always add a splash of color in your closet, but it should not outnumber the basics. Take a cue from Jolie’s minimalist and classy wardrobes where either black or white is dominant. On the one hand, basic colors aren’t the thing in celeb fashion, but also basic apparels like jeans, skirts, and tops. They don’t go out of their houses or hotels donned in dresses all the time, especially when you have a big brood to watch out. Having high quality jeans and comfy tops is a must have in every woman’s closet.
Accessorize – If there is one factor that celebs have and normal people don’t when it comes to clothing, it would have to be accessorizing. Accessories can be in the form of bracelets, necklaces or chokers, bangles, headbands, rings, earrings, belts, and even scarves and wristwatches. Choose an accessory that complements your look, but be careful not to overdo it. After all, they’re only meant to add more oomph to your looks, not to outweigh your look.
