5 Ways to Dress Like Your Favorite Celebrity On a Budget

Want to dress like your favorite celebrities but don’t have an A-lister bank account to make it happen? No worries — you can still achieve a celeb-inspired look, for less, without foregoing today’s top trends. 

Whether you’re into all things comfort, timeless style (hello, little black dress!), or are all about animal prints, these trends are yours for the taking.

1. Matching Sweatsuits

This past year had us all reaching for our favorite sweatpants and cozy pullovers. Take a note from model Ashley Graham’s style playbook and make a statement, albeit a comfortable one, in a matching sweatsuit. Whether you’re lounging at home or running errands, a versatile matching sweatsuit just works. Look for neutral, on-trend colors like off-white, cream, or tan. Then, pair your matching sweatsuit with a favorite pair of retro sneakers to pull it all together.

2. The Little Black Dress

The little black dress is timeless. Through the decades, this fashion staple has been a must-have for fashion it-girls and celebrities alike. Today, the trendiest little black dresses have thin straps, sleek silhouettes and lots of playful details, from delicate black feathers and netted fringe to deep v-necklines. Practical and versatile, the tried-and-true little black dress can take you from day to night with the right accessories. Just don’t forget your heels to finish off the look.

3. Square Toe Shoes

Fashion cycles come and go — and we’ve seen this one go before. However, celebrities and influencers alike are bringing the iconic square toe shoe back in style. A pillar of late 1990s and 2000s fashion, the square toe shoe, albeit clogs, boots, or heels, is back in a big way. A-listers like Gigi Hadid, Rosalia and Rosie Huntingon-Whitley have been spotted wearing these iconic shoes. But you don’t need a celebrity budget to achieve the look and can, instead, shop your local vintage boutique. Once you’ve found your dream pair, match your vintage footwear with blue denim or a classic cream knit dress to truly make a statement.

4. Animal Print Everything

What do Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Priyanka Chopra all have in common? All three fabulous women have been photographed wearing statement animal prints, which is undoubtedly this season’s must-have print. And you can bring the trend home, too. Whether you’re into zebra stripes or leopard spots, there’s an animal print out there just for you. Try out the animal print trend with a cozy and colorful zebra pattern cardigan. Then, slip on an animal print midi dress or button up a statement shirt in your favorite animal print.

5. Band Tees

The Kardashian sisters are style icons. They’ve glossed the pages of numerous fashion magazines and, of course, runways, too. So, channel your inner Kourtney Kardashian and bring a casual, cool-girl vibe to your wardrobe this season with band T-shirts. These closet staples are everywhere — and you don’t need to shell out hundreds of dollars for a super-rare, vintage tee. Instead, shop online to find vintage-inspired T-shirts. Try the look by pairing an oversized T-shirt with bike shorts, tiny sunglasses, a bright statement handbag and chunky platform sneakers.
