Pretty in Pink: Reese Witherspoon's Bubblegum Top and Floral Tote Look for Less

Reese Witherspoon Look for Less
Reese Witherspoon recently stepped out in this bright pink ensemble reminding everyone how to add a pop of color to their fall wardrobes. We love this look which can only be described as 'casual Southern belle,' and the fact that Reese incorporates pieces from her own collection, Draper James, as well as American classic, Ralph Lauren. Her floral tote is the Draper James Canvas Vanderbilt Tote ($165) and her sweater is the Ralph Lauren Cashmere Collared Sweater (on sale now for $147, down from $245).

Sure, anyone can have a great costume when they’re shelling out hundreds of dollars on replicas and such. Why do that when you can have a capsule costume wardrobe? You can be fabulously creative with just a few basic pieces. My own costume is TBA, unless my friends agree to do ‘Hanks’oween with me (where we all dress up as Tom Hanks characters).

While snapped at Paris fashion week, model Bella Hadid aced her street style look in a camel sweater and merlot leather mini skirt. She finished the look with black patent ankle boots (which I am assuming are Saint Laurent since that's what all the It-girls seem to be wearing these days) and her hair pulled into a sleek up-do.
