Colorblock Rock: Beyonce's Orange Top, Pink Shorts and Green Bag Look for Less

Beyonce's colorblock look for less
Since this week's Capsule Wardrobe is inspired by Beyonce, I thought it was only fitting to feature another look that the star was recently seen rocking which shows off her incredible legs and her fearless approach to wearing bright colors. Each piece in this look is so unique, from her Cushnie et Ochs top and Dsquared2 shorts, to her Monolo Blahnik pumps and Givenchy bag. But you can try this look on a budget, too, because the vivid colorblocking is what make the look unique. Just pick pieces that are the same intensity, and you'll be working your own Queen Bey style in no time.

Shop the celebrity look for less:
Designer-Inspired Oval Earrings, $4.99 (authentic Kendra Scott earrings here) // Bebe Crop Top, $89 // Alice + Olivia Shorts, $99 (down from $198) (also love these Boohoo shorts) // Fossil 'Sydney' Satchel, $131.90 (after sale $198) // Charles by Charles David 'Pact' Pump, $66.90 (after sale $98.95)

Spot the Real: A.L.C. Plaid Shirtdress

Can you spot the real A.L.C. plaid shirt dress?
I've come to the realization that the easiest way to find the hottest fashion bloggers out there right now is to simply search your Instagram feed for the hashtag #nsale, where you will discover bloggers such as Something Navy (@somethingnavy, 554k followers) rocking this A.L.C. 'Simona' plaid shirtdress ($359.90, down from $545), one of her Nordstrom Anniversary Sale steals. If you then decide you love said style but can't embrace the cost, I found a great look for less that's just $24.99. See if you can spot the real from the steal below, then go shop!
