Steal Her Style: Shanina Shaik's Satin Blouse and Dear Frances Boots

Shanina Shaik's satin blouse and ankle boots look for less
Shanina Shaik shows off her features in a silky low-cut blouse and denim cut-offs! Her model-off-duty look might not be easy for everyone to pull off, but we can take some style notes for fall nonetheless! For starters, her black 'Spirit' ankle booties by Dear Frances ($550) are in every It-girl's closet (think Kendall and Bella), but we'd gladly rock this similar pair under $35 instead! The block heel makes these comfortable for everyday while still looking tres chic. And if you want to update your average office button-down, consider an oversized satin blouse instead - buttoned up, of course!

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.

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. Check it out for you and your mini!



Nicky Hilton's Striped Tee, Denim Shorts, and Black Tote Bag Look for Less

Nicky Hilton Striped Tee and Black Tote Look for Less
If there was a signature casual outfit for the season of summer, this would likely be it. A black and white striped tee with denim shorts will never fail, and the ones we found from Kohl's are a major deal at under $20. They also have a 4-inch inseam, so you will be plenty covered while still wearing a trendy pair of distressed denim shorts. A bag can dress up tee and denim essentials like these that you may even already have in your closet, and we love the luxurious look of this ALDO bag - and that it's attainable without being on a waitlist to buy it for the same price as your car!



Get Alessandra Ambrosio's Western-Inspired Look for Less

Alessandra Ambrosio White Cropped Tank Look for Less
The queen of festival looks does it again, this time with a cowgirl vibe! Her embossed Valentino boots set the stage for a Western theme, with some help from her necklace, bandana scarf, and colorful fringe blanket. True cowgirl boots are worth the investment because they'll last a lifetime. But the pair we found at Macy's for under $50 is a good starting point if you're looking for something just to wear to a few country concerts or BBQs you have planned and save some cash. Not feeling this look? Good news is, a few accessory changes are all it takes for these denim shorts and white ruffle cropped tank to fit almost any setting you may find yourself in this summer.
