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.



Outfit Inspo on a Budget: Blake Lively's Vivienne Westwood Jacket & Cropped Trousers

Blake Lively Mauve Jacket and Trousers Look for Less
When are we ever not gushing over Blake? The actress wore all-Vivienne Westwood, minus her Christian Louboutin two-toned studded oxfords (sold out). These masculine-inspired pieces end up looking extremely feminine with a pretty mauve color and her blond tresses tousled effortlessly. We added this bright yellow bag to give an extra punch of fun and keep the summer vibes going just a bit longer!



Lily James' Floral One Shoulder Top and Pink Trousers Look for Less

Lily James Floral One Shoulder Top Look for Less
Who here is a Mama Mia fan? We're pumped about the new movie and also one of its stars, Lily James, in this Hellessy one shoulder floral blouse and pink trousers - that sash is so fun! She stays on the ultra-feminine color vibes with pink pumps, a classy updo, and cat-eye sunglasses. Her exact clutch is on sale for $99 from Barneys New York, but this velvet one from Nordstrom Rack looks luxurious enough to pass for a more expensive piece.



Throwback Thursday: Kristin Cavallari's Cable Knit Sweater and Black Leggings Look for Less

Kristen Cavallari Look for Less
When looking for the most bang for your buck, timeless closet staples are truly the best investment. Kristin Cavallari's look from 2011 is just as in style today as it was then, proving that basic pieces can transcend fads or trendy pieces. Kristin styles her cable-knit sweater with black leggings, tall buckled riding boots and a chic leather handbag. Reimagined I've stuck with her classic look, but added updates like the trapeze structure in the handbag and an option to add a little edge with a lace-up option. Whether you opt for the classic look or update it, you'll be looking chic and staying comfortable this season! Get the look below, and make sure to check out my latest find from H&M, "treggings." The jegging-alternative offers a thicker, sturdier, stretchable fabric that makes it 100% acceptable to sport the tight-fitting legwear as pants.

Throwback Thursday: Miranda Kerr's Stripe Sweater and Ankle Boots Look for Less

Get Miranda Kerr's moto jacket, striped sweater, olive pants and ankle boots look for less.
This streetstyle look seen on model Miranda Kerr back in 2011 is just as chic today as it was back then. When you combine classic stripes, a leather moto jacket, and ankle boots, you really can't go wrong. This look doesn't stop at simple neutrals, though, because the olive skinny pants and rich burgundy bag really take things up a notch. I think I've personally worn some permutation of this outfit about a million times because it's so easy to throw on, yet always looks pulled together and like you've put some effort into your look (even when you haven't). Print this "look for less" out and hang it in your closet, ladies, because you'll reach for these pieces time and time again, even when you think you've got nothing to wear!
