Gabrielle Union's Look for Less: Stella McCartney Mixed Print Dress

Gabrielle Union Stella McCartney Mix Media Dress Look for Less
Can't decide whether to go with stripes or plaid? Problem solved. Gabrielle Union is bold and girly in this flouncy asymmetric zip mix print dress by Stella McCartney, which retails at $1,240. In our humble opinion, we prefer this one from Tommy Hilfiger - a little less stark in its contrasting prints, yet still unique and looks great with white loafers! But, we will give Gabrielle major credit for good taste with the Sam Edelman bag. Speaking of, these Lia Studded Loafers are another winning option for this outfit, if you're in the market for a good pair of white shoes above $100!



Jennifer Lopez's Gucci Blouse and White Wide Leg Trousers Look for Less

Jennifer Lopez White Trousers Floral Gucci Blouse Look for Less
J-Lo goes glam once again in these sexy wide leg trousers and a 70s-esque floral blouse by Gucci. We'd love this look for a powersuit alternative at work or a date night - if you're bold enough for white bottoms! It would be way cool to have the Chanel logo to show off around your waist too, but this double circle belt still looks sleek and isn't your everyday buckle. And an outfit this stellar must include dazzling nails to top it off!



Look for Less: Meghan Markle's Sleeveless Trench Dress + Matching Pumps and Bag

Meghan Markle's Sleeveless Trench Dress Look for Less
Clearly we can't get enough of the duchess's clean and sophisticated style. Though hard to tell from afar, Meghan's House of Nonie sleeveless trench is a actually a subtle shade of pink, and she nailed the color coordination with the Mulberry bag and Dior pumps. Sadly we weren't able to find a trench of a similar hue, but our find from MANGO in light grey compliments this specific shade quite well. Another option: re-create the look with a darker tones in this trench dress from Forever21!



Meghan Markle's Denim Dress and Bow Suede Heels Look for Less

Meghan Markle's Denim Dress and Bow Suede Heels Look for Less
You ask, we deliver! Meghan Markle makes another splash in the fashion world with this dark denim dress by Carolina Herrera, with suede bow pumps, and a woven clutch. We love her subtleness in all of her outfits, clean and classic yet enviable all the same. These cat-eye sunglasses we've found, similar to her sold-out Tom Ford pair, are marked down from $120 to $50! Though we won't be attending a polo event like the royals, this outfit will certainly work for day or night through the rest of this summer - and even early fall!



Get the Look for Less: Ashlee Simpson's Red Floral Blouse and Wide Leg Cropped Pants

Ashlee Simpson Red Floral Blouse and Wide Leg Pants Look for Less
Ashley Simpson wears a bold pair of wide leg cropped pants and a red floral blouse, and we don't hate it. Though the pants look like they might need some ironing, the belt is super flattering and the snake print pumps create an edginess with mixed prints. The Michael Kors pumps we found are on sale from $135 down to $65! But the real question here is: would you rock pants like these?
