Alessandra Ambrosio's Acne Jacket, Rust Sweaterdress and Lace-Up Boots Look for Less

Alessandra Ambrosio in Acne Velocite Jacket look for less
Leave it to Alessandra Ambrosio to make a sweaterdress sizzle on a snowy NYC day! We love how she paired her rust-hued mini dress with lace-up boots and her favorite Acne 'Velocite' Shearling Jacket. This jacket is still super popular, and luckily there are a lot of good dupes, including this one under $100 on Amazon. Compared to the $2,700 pricetag on the designer jacket, we'll take the budget find any day!



Look for Less: Gwyneth Paltrow at Her Book Signing in Fendi Logo Boots, Wide Leg Pants, and Turtleneck Sweater

Gwyneth Paltrow Fendi Boots and Wide Leg Pants Look for Less
Gwyneth Paltrow's new book, The Clean Plate, was released last month and we are loving her outfit just as much as her recipes! At a Barnes & Noble book signing in LA last month, Gwyneth paired an oversized turtleneck sweater with wide leg pants - cuffed, we might add, to show off those funky western-style Fendi logo boots. We personally can't wait to start wearing boots of this style during spring and paring them with skinny jeans or even midi dresses/skirts. Gwyneth keeps things simple with a small bracelet and a fit bit, which is quite fitting for the theme of her book. With beautiful blonde tresses like that, who needs accessories?

Alessandra Ambrosio Michael Jackson Tee Look for Less
Alessandra Ambrosio is the queen of casual looks that are super easy to re-create, and we have to say that a good moto jacket is one of our favorite pieces to style around. If you don't have one in your closet yet, this Topshop 'Rosa' jacket is the perfect solution - I own this one and love everything about it - the fit, the price, and it looks way more expensive than it is! Pair it with any graphic tee of your choice, some high-waisted destroyed jeans, and classic black ankle boots. We're loving this as a transition outfit from winter to spring!

Actress Tracee Ellis Ross is a showstopper in this burgundy pant suit and bright red knee high boots. We just love her enthusiasm for color here, mixing different shades of red with an orange crossbody bag and an electric pink lipstick to amplify her smile. The chunky gold hoop earrings are the perfect statement jewelry for an already vibrant look! Would you dare rock the all red look?!
