Get the Draper James by Reese Witherspoon Denim Shirtdress Look for Less

Reese Witherspoon Draper James Denim Dress Look for Less
This shirtdress is from Reese's own clothing line and is under $100! How cute is that sweet floral detailing on the cuffs and along button seam? Draper James by Reese Witherspoon is inspired by her Southern heritage, specifically her grandparents, who were key in teaching her how to be a lady - including how to dress like one! Most of the items in her line are comparable to J. Crew or Madewell as far as pricing goes. For this look, basic gladiator sandals and a bucket bag help complete a super easy, causal outfit for any summer occasion. Denim is easy to accessorize with, so stack up the gold bracelets and some pink sunnies for a pop of color!



Olivia Culpo's Striped Jumpsuit and Gucci Handbag Look for Less

Olivia Culpo Striped Jumpsuit Look for Less
Olivia Culpo struts the street in one of her very own designs with this light blue striped culotte jumpsuit. The actress and model launched a fashion line with Marled by Reunited Clothing, featuring jumpsuits like this one as well as track pants, dresses, and cut-out tops that are chic and trendy with her own little twists. This jumpsuit in particular is $128, so if you're up for the splurge, we love the idea of a strapless white top underneath, like Olivia does here. Style it with matching pointed-toe heels, a belt, and basic earrings for a dressy look that works for day or night.

Adam Levine for Kmart Spring Collection
Did you know Adam Levine of Maroon 5 fame has a clothing line at Kmart? I had completely forgotten about this collection until the team emailed me to share pics of the spring collection.

Designed with creative director and Project Runway alumn Kevin Christiana, the line features "vintage-inspired" clothes for ladies and gents, with countless styles under $35 ranging from everyday basics with an edgy twist like hoodie sweatshirts and joggers to more nostalgic, vintage-inspired graphic t-shirts, bombers and denim jackets.

You'll Never Guess Where Gabrielle Union Got Her Amazing Winter Coat

Gabrielle Union stuns in a winter coat from her collection for New York & Company featuring a mix of colorful faux fur and tweed.
If I'm being perfectly honest, I see a lot of celebrity looks I love, but realistically know will be impossible to recreate on a budget. Take for instance Gabrielle Union's amazing faux fur and tweed coat look. Layered over luxe neutral knits and paired with the prettiest purple ankle boots and leather bucket bag, it's the epitome of winter chic.

Judging by the detail and unique mix of fabrics and fur, I figured her coat was Dolce or Miu Miu. No way I could recreate this on a budget.
