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!

Jessica Alba's red pinstripe shirtdress and low vamp heels look for less
Look no further than Target to recreate Jessica Alba's unique shirtdress and low-vamp heels look for less! Target's Who What Wear label always makes sure the latest high-fashion trends hit the high-street, with wearable pieces like this shirtdress that can take you from work to the weekend. As your eyes move down to Jessica's white Celine shoes, well, my guess is you'll either love them or hate them. Thankfully Target also has this low-vamp look available for just $25 so if you change your mind, no harm done!



Charlotte McKinney's Check Crop Top and Flare Jeans Look for Less

Charlotte McKinney Check Crop Top Look for Less
The more we see of the crop flare jeans on our favorite celebs, the more we dig this trend! Charlotte McKinney catches our eye wearing hers with this frilly blue check crop top. Her white heeled sandals keep things feminine, and the snake print contrast with her top is another one of those unexpected pairings that inspires us to be more adventurous with our own outfits!



Olivia Culpo's Striped Jumpsuit and Gucci Handbag Look for Less

Olivia Culpo Striped Jumpsuit Look for Less
Olivia Culpo struts the street in one of her very own designs with this light blue striped culotte jumpsuit. The actress and model launched a fashion line with Marled by Reunited Clothing, featuring jumpsuits like this one as well as track pants, dresses, and cut-out tops that are chic and trendy with her own little twists. This jumpsuit in particular is $128, so if you're up for the splurge, we love the idea of a strapless white top underneath, like Olivia does here. Style it with matching pointed-toe heels, a belt, and basic earrings for a dressy look that works for day or night.



Pippa Middleton's Red Floral Wrap Dress and Wedge Espadrilles Look for Less

Pippa Middleton's Red Floral Wrap Dress Look for Less
The lovely Pippa Middleton goes a boho in a long floral red wrap dress by Ralph Lauren, summery wedge espadrilles, and a woven crossbody bag - and hers is actually affordable! We love the versatility of a dress like this; a simple shoe and handbag swap can take this from day to night, or lunch to wedding, or coffee date to church. Accessories are kept to a minimum, but a fedora is always the perfect shade-blocker for when a baseball cap will literally cramp your style...and it's a subtle way to match with your man, like she and husband James Matthews did, without looking corny!
