Royal Look for Less: Meghan Markle's Trench Coat, Sheath Dress, and Cuff Bracelet

Meghan Markle Trench Coat Look for Less
Meghan Markle is elegant as always in this beautiful Martin Grant trench coat over a classy ivory sheath dress. You can never go wrong with suede pumps when you're going for a luxe look and these Nine West ones are a steal! Simplicity with accessories is another key to subtle yet killer style, so we are loving her dainty jewel cuff bracelet. She does a great job of keeping her makeup and hair looking natural and so easily replicable for any occasion. Meghan has been raving about this "life changing" hair care line, n.p. beautiful by Celebrity Hairstylist David Babaii. It is available at Nordstrom and also gives 10% of net proceeds to Pediatric Cancer Research and Animal Welfare charities.



Emma Stone's Pink & Orange Ruffle Top and Black Trousers Look for Less

Emma Stone Ruffle Top and Black Trousers Look for Less
Emma Stone shows us what the perfect fall florals look like in a beautiful autumn-esque ruffle top. She keeps the look sleek and professional with cropped trousers and patent ankle strap pumps, with a splash of fun yellow sunnies. Her top handle crossbody bag is the perfect structured accessory for a smart outfit like this one, and this DKNY one was originally $198! We'll take $100+ off a bag any day. What do you think of this as a crossover look, from day in the office to night on the town?



Reese Witherspoon's All-Red "The Row" Look for Less

Reese in Red Look for Less
We're pretty sure Reese could make any color look amazing, but Reese in all-red is our current fave! Her top and wide-leg bottoms are both from The Row, and offer the perfect way to make a bold statement in the simplest way possible. If you're tired of basic black heels and want to keep your footwear just as spicy as your outfit, you can opt for a darker shade of your main hue, like Reese did here with burgundy velvet sandals. These Nicole Miller ones are on major sale, down from $165! Reese always does well picking cute, classic accessories and makes no exception with these cat-eye sunglasses (looking extra sassy with the red, might we add) and black Fendi top-handle bag.



Meghan Markle's Blue Peplum Blouse and Flared Trousers Look for Less

Meghan Markle Blue Peplum Blouse Look for Less
Some might say pants are a little laidback for the Dutchess of Sussex, but of course she wore them with a hint of royal flair! Her beautiful ruffled peplum top is from Oscar de la Renta, in a gorgeous blue hue. We're glad that black flared trousers and suede pumps are easy pieces to replicate on a budget, seeing as how hers, collectively, are over $1,000. This would be a great outfit idea for upcoming holiday parties or dinners!



Look for Less: Chrissy Teigen in a White Shirt Dress, Oversized Blazer, and OTK Boots

Chrissy Teigen White Shirt Dress Look for Less
Chrissy Teigen always nails a killer black and white outfit! White shirts and blazers are usually seen paired with denim or tailored pants, depending on the occasion. However, we're loving her spin on it with this shirt dress and over-the-knee boots. A little bit of sass (and some leg!) with her oversized top and jacket make for a perfect dinner date look or post-work hangout with gal pals. Hidden from view is her Balenciaga Calfskin crossbody, which retails for $1,325...so we'll settle for a good ol' Steve Madden bag and call it good!
