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.

Moms (and frankly, all of us!) seek comfort in everyday wear, and Alessandra Ambrosio proves that you don't have to sacrifice style to keep up with the kiddos. On a trip to the farm with her son, she sports an easy graphic tee and jeans, but the fedora and riding boots are the perfect touches of flair without going overboard. Keep a lightweight utility jacket handy by effortlessly tying it around your waist!

You don't need to sell me on plaid shirts; I currently live in this one from Target. I bought 4 colors, I love it that much!

But I'm always looking for new ways to style my plaid, and this combination elevates the winter staple with black leggings and classic riding boots.

Also don't forget to check out the newly launched Sugarfix by BaubleBar jewelry at Target...I snuck a polished cuff into this look as a little teaser!

Primped and Polished: Lori Loughlin's Plaid Blazer and Riding Boot Look for Less

Lori Loughlin Look for Less
This year we saw a re-imagining of schoolgirl style, simple silhouettes and plaid prints that are a major step up from the uniforms I was envious of as a child. Chloe Sevigny wore the trend with a layered turtleneck and dress ensemble and here, Lori Loughlin puts her spin on the style with a fitted jacket and muted neutrals.

Lori stepped out in her Smythe Peak-Lapel Plaid Blazer ($695) paired with a white tee, skinny black jeans, dark brown suede boots and a coordinating satchel. She kept it simple with accessories, wearing a gray scarf, gold trimmed aviator sunglasses and a black leather belt.

This look is so clean and put together, plus it totally brings images of boarding school girls to mind with major equestrian vibes. Perfect for a day out on the town running errands or grabbing lunch with a group of friends. Shop my picks below to steal her style and get the entire look for less than half the cost of her jacket!
