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!



Meghan Markle's White Turtleneck Dress Look for Less

Meghan Markle's white turtleneck dress and matching coat
The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle glows in her white turtleneck dress by Calvin Klein with a matching white coat by Amanda Wakeley. We love the idea of matching your coat to your dress - the result always looks elevated and expensive. Another pro tip from a royal: Anchor your look with an unexpected neutral, like the olive green Ralph Lauren pumps and clutch seen here!



Alessandra Ambrosio's Michael Jackson Graphic Tee and Moto Jacket Look for Less

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!



Valentine's Day Outfit Idea: Padma Lakshmi's Pink Pants and White Blazer

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I can't help but think Padma Lakshmi's pink pants and white blazer would make the perfect outfit for the occasion. And I found the ideal pants to recreate her look-for-less at Express, complete with that enviable high-waist, sash styling.



Gwen Stefani's Camo Pants and Fringe Boots Look for Less

Gwen Stefani camo cargo pants look for less
I hardly recognize Gwen Stefani without her signature red lipstick, but her fashion style is unmistakeable! The pop icon mixes two unlikely prints - camo and plaid - for the coolest casual look. While I couldn't find a match for her graphic muscle tee, a solid gray one will do in a pinch. For accessories, Gwen chose look-at-me fringe high-heel ankle booties. I'm totally on board with this, but if you're feeling a little less rockstar, your favorite sneakers will do just fine, too.
