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!

Pumps and denim shorts isn't a combo we see often! But the beyond adorable Nina Dobrev totally makes it work and seamlessly combines classy, casual & edgy. You likely have a plaid shirt, basic tee, and shorts in your closet, so this is a super example of how to play them up and get creative with your look - accessories help with that by way of an eclectic silver statement necklace and ladylike chain strap crossbody bag.



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!

Nicky Hilton Embroidered Tassel Top Look for Less
Tassels, tassels everywhere! Nicky Hilton wears an embroidered tassel top with funky tassel earrings and a wide-brim fedora while out and about. Denim shorts and gladiator sandals are always a summertime must, but every now and then it's nice to pair them with something other than a plain tank or tee and everyday jewelry. Nicky has been a walking mannequin for the native bright prints lately (as seen in our Look for Less featuring her Tolani romper), recently collaborating with a celeb favorite brand, Tolani, for a "Mommy + Me" collection.
