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!

Steve Madden dupes at Target!
Thanks to my Instagram fam for finding this great look for less! Target's gem embellished slide sandals are half the price of Steve Madden's 'Rosalyn' slide sandals. Such a fun look for summer! Super glam yet laid back and easy to wear at the same time.

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.
