From Beach to Street: Jennifer Aniston's One-Piece Swimsuit and Wrap Skirt Look for Less

Jennifer Aniston Look for Less
Summer ensembles should be effortless, comfortable and, for convenience, easily transformed. In this look, Jennifer Aniston demonstrates how she takes a look from beach to street in a snap. After leaving the beach, Jen styled her one-piece bathing suit with a printed wrap skirt, denim jacket, khaki fedora, Havianas flip flops and a large black tote. For just a touch of gold, she added a delicate leaf necklace and classic aviators. I feel like I'm always on-the-go and rushed during dressing, so the ease of just adding a couple of pieces to my outfit before heading to the next activity is perfect! In my re-creation, I featured a bodysuit in the look, for those who are iffy about the swimwear, but I did list a one-piece swimsuit below. Check out my picks for this look from Jen, featuring pieces starting at $2.90!

Off the Rack: Superga Sneakers at Target

See in-store photos of the Superga x Target limited-edition sneaker collaboration.
Yesterday I had the chance to scope out the new Superga x Target collection, featuring lace-up sneakers in classic colors like white, navy and black (faux) leather as well as fun stars and stripes motifs, perfect for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. I highly recommend checking these out: They look identical to "real" Superga sneakers, including the far as I can tell, it's identical to the tag they put on all their sneakers, which is nice for us Target shoppers who don't want to give away our little budget shopping secrets!

Supergas are a cult favorite - celebs and streetstyle stars alike love these designed-in-Italy kicks. As far as I can tell without actually wearing them and putting them to the test is that they're the the same as shoes that cost twice as much. I bought Supergas once and actually returned them because I didn't feel they were worth the price (and they kinda made my feet look big, it's an issue I have with flat lace-up sneaks) but I will definitely be picking up a pair at this price...probably the low-top in faux black leather ($29.99). With shorts, jeans or cute dresses, these are the perfect comfy-chic shoes to wear all summer and into the fall. You can see more of my off-the-rack photos below and shop all the shoes in the Superga x Target collection online at

Ashley's Picks: Wedding Guest Dresses Under $100

Ashley's Picks Wedding Guest Dresses
To me, a wedding means dressing up, spinning around the dance floor and celebrating the love between two people. It also means searching for the perfect guest dress - one that doesn't stray from typical 'wedding attire etiquette', can be worn more than a few times, and doesn't break the bank. I found amazing picks under $100 from Boohoo, Rent the Runway and River Island that I am obsessed with; hopefully you'll love them as well. Make sure to check out Lauren's Picks, Dianna's Picks and Sophia's Picks for more wedding inspo, with all of our different personal styles I'm positive you'll find at least one you're in love with!

Layover Loungewear: Jessica Alba's Comfortable Travel Look for Less

Jessica Alba Look for Less
Style may be a priority, but for me, nothing is more important than being comfortable on long flights. Here, Jessica Alba demonstrates that you can have it all with this fab athleisure-inspired look. Jessica wore a slouchy tee paired with a longline cardigan, rolled jogger sweats, platform sandals, oversized sunglasses and carried a reversible tote in addition to her carry-on. What I love about this look is how easy it is to recreate with pieces I already own, I just need to grab a duster sweater and similar 'flatform' shoes. Plus it's functional: the sweater is perfect for keeping warm on the plane, sunglasses to dim the overhead lighting and a huge tote to carry all of your essentials including Jessica's own Honest Beauty's Magic Balm. This product is a multi-functional moisturizer perfect for dry skin and chapped lips and a definite beauty must-have!

Black and White: Taylor Swift's Denim Shorts and Sneakers Look for Less

Recreate Taylor Swift's casual summer style with affordable fashion finds.
It never ceases to amaze me how celebrities with seemingly limitless financial resources still often choose to rock the most basic of basics for their everyday style. Here's Taylor Swift's cool summer style, just a black loose fitting tee, black denim shorts and some white sneakers. Granted her shoes are Saint Laurent 'Court Stars' leather sneakers ($493, or $645 at, and her handbag is designer, too, but we found some near identical finds that will have you rocking her look in no time...millionaire status not required.
