Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: If I Were a Boy, I’d Look This Cute Too.

beyonce[Every week our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities are spending $5,000 on an ensemble, you don’t have to. All you have to do is click on the goods and – boom – you can buy the entire ensemble. Yes, we know; there is a spot for her in heaven.]

It is this picture right here that really makes me hate lady B. We all know she can sing, she can dance hella good, she has a mom who can make her clothes on command and lady love looks daaaamn good in a leotard.

So it’s not fair that she can pull off both the leotard AND the boyish look. Can’t you share some – a smidgen of – that posh, fierce, damn-I-look-and-sound-good with the rest of us mere mortals? She takes a ‘fit that most of us woudldn’t know how to make look like we didn’t grab from our 80 year old grandpa’s closet (or 30 year old brother’s wardrobe from high school) and turns it into something worth pining for.

Not to mention the suspenders are probabaly the BEST way to keep from giving the paparazzi (or in my case, my boss) from seeing some crackage.

So here is this week’s Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: If I Were a Boy, I’d Look This Cute Too

Plaid top

plaid-shirt

Lightweight enough so it’s perfect for spring, snap closes so its easy for – uh – opening. Wear in in an open V like Beyonce to make it a bit more femme.

Suspenders
suspenders
Cute and no crackage? I am so in. Plus, I’ve always wanted to run my thumbs up and down a pair of suspenders like a cute old man.

Skinny Jean
skinnies
These are great because they bunch at the bottom instead of suctioning your calves, leaving them black and blue (and making you look like you’ve got severe cankles).
SquareSunglasses
square-sunglasses
Pick a color, any color. Or every color. They’re that cheap. This shape also happens to look good on nearly everyone and will give your look an instant glam update.

Bracelets
bracelets
Stock up in different colors, or layer in a solid color like our gal pal, B.

$30 platform pumps
black-pumps
I knew that there would always be another reason to add to my Reasons I Love Target list, and I just found them right here for $30
HOLLER.
