Jessica Biel's Cape, Fair Isle Sweater, and Ankle Booties Look for Less

Jessica Biel Cape Look for Less
Trendy pieces can always be hit or miss, and we're thinking this cape on Jessica Biel is one to consider! She wears it over a classic ivory and black fair isle sweater (a sure sign that Christmas is on the way!) and black washed skinny jeans and suede ankle boots. Jessica's sunglasses are from Privé Revaux, a super affordable line of trendy and timeless shades. Unfortunately, we can't say the same about her Jimmy Choo bag, which runs for $1,280. Love it, but we'll leave it and take a reasonable box bag from French Connection (bonus: it's on sale, down from $118). This is the perfect outfit for a gift shopping day with some girlfriends, Thanksgiving dinner at your aunt's house, winter date night...the possibilities are endless and sweater season is just getting started.



The Look for Less: Julia Roberts in a Givenchy Graphic Sweatshirt and Coated Skinny Jeans

Julia Roberts Graphic Givenchy Sweatshirt Look for Less
Julia Roberts is one of those actresses that has earned her way as one of our forever favorite actresses (I mean, you can't not love her in Runaway Bride and My Best Friend's Wedding!) She just celebrated her 51st birthday at the end of October, and is clearly still killing the style game. Just goes to show that dressing well isn't just for models and reality TV stars under 30! Her Givenchy sweatshirt is a one-of-a-kind item in high demand that sells crazy fast; probably because it goes well with more than just athleisure. We'd love to copy her look and pair it with tailored pieces like a blazer, coated skinny jeans, and high heel sandals. And that subtle wavy hair! The gal can do no wrong here.



Royal Look for Less: Meghan Markle's Green Trench and Stuart Weitzman Boots

Meghan Markle Green Trench Look for Less
Everyone's favorite royal gal is clearly one of our faves to follow for fashion inspiration now! And this time, it was love at first sight with her green Club Monaco trench and sassy Stuart Weiztman lace-up boots. All-black with a subtle pop of refreshing color keeps the outfit from becoming too much of one thing, and even shows a bit more of Meghan's casual side. You can easily rotate this trench style with other trendy sweaters or jackets this season, and keep the black staple pieces on repeat!
