The look for less: Chrissy Teigen |

I follow Chrissy Teigen on Instagram and well, let me tell you: she is hilarious! Not only is she beautiful but it seems like she never takes life too seriously (case in point). And did I mention her style? She could make a garbage bag look glamorous! Chrissy was recently spotted out walking her dog and looking on point. She mixes high and low together in a classic black and white ensemble: a window-pane white tee from Tory Burch, a graphic pant from Old Navy, and some white Louboutins. This outfit is easily recreated: pair these same ankle pants with a white pocket tee and a sparkly white heel. Would you wear this look?

The look for less: Mindy Kaling|


Not only does she has a hit TV show, but she’s also smart, funny, and witty. What’s not to love about Mindy Kaling? She’s been known to take fashion risks well before it’s considered trendy. Most people might not be able to pull off an entire matching color outfit but Mindy shows us how it can be done. She balances her look by pairing a Salvador Perez purple polka dot button down with a timeless pencil skirt. A chunky suede heel adds a great visual effect and she completes the look with a subtle pastel stone statement necklace. This outfit is truly versatile and could be appropriate for a number of occasions. Pair this similar blouse with a knee length skirt, purple suede wedges, and a glistening statement necklace and you’re ready to conquer the day just like Mindy!

The look for less: Eva Longoria |


I have been a longtime fan of Eva Longoria’s style. She has a petite frame but that doesn’t stop her from styling her outfits well to maximize stature. Her recent outfit on a dinner outing at the infamous LA hotspot, Mr. Chow, is no exception. She keeps it casual but also dressed up by pairing this blush pink silk top with some white skinny jeans. She accentuates her 5’2″ frame by defining the waistline with a skinny belt and elongating her legs with her T-strap nude colored heels. Her Dolce & Gabbana handbag adds a fun pop of color to the entire look. Liking this look? It would be perfect for a daytime or nighttime outing – think business casual meeting or after work drinks! Try pairing this silk blouse with these summer must-have white denim jeans. Add a golden brown belt and these fun heels and pair it with a studded purse to achieve this sophisticated look!

The look for less: Victoria Beckham

Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want… Sorry, that was the 90s calling and it wants one of its songs back. It’s been more than a decade since the rise and popularity of the group The Spice Girls. I’m sure you remember – or have heard of – Victoria Adam (aka Posh Spice). Perhaps, you know her by her married name: Victoria Beckham. Her style has become very refined compared to her girl band days. Even with the simplest of outfits, she makes it stand out with her confidence. Case in point:

I love the light, airy feel of this outfit. Despite it’s simplicity, I think it has a very sophisticated feel. Something about the softness of the silk blouse from Equipment paired with the wide leg trousers from Chloé makes this a very chic outfit. I think this look would work well for a business meeting: consider this similar Milly blouse and these soft blue linen pants from Ralph Lauren. Pair it with a nude heel and some aviator glasses and you’re all set to talk shop. What do you think – would you wear this outfit?

P.S. Don’t forget to join me tomorrow for a new weekly “Style Me Wednesday” fashion link-up! Can’t wait to check out all your fabulous looks!
