Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Cameron Diaz is Easily Elegant
[Welcome to Celebrity Chic on the Cheap, where 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 (like the latest style icon, Kelly Osbourne) are spending $5,000 and more on an ensemble, you an spend way less...and save the rest for Margarita Mondays.]
Cameron Diaz is usually not one that I look to for style inspiration. I mean, I love her as an actress and I totally respect her long-term commitment to environmental causes (she was going green far before it was the norm). As far as style goes though, I wasn’t exactly putting photos of her red carpet looks onto my inspiration board. Maybe it’s because she is so naturally gorg, and has this ridiculously lithe, statuesque body, she always seemed to go for really simple, unremarkable pieces so as to not detract from, well, her.
But perhaps the emergence of another blonde Amazonian goddess onto the scene has inspired Cameron to embrace her inner fashionista, because lately, she has been totally stepping up her game, going for a effortlessly sophisticated aesthetic that I loooove.
I love this lighter, spring-ier version of the boyfriend blazer; it’s structured and airy all at the same time. To up the sex appeal, Cameron paired it with a fierce one-shoulder black dress. I am so glad that the one shoulder look is back in season, because it adds the same amount of sass as a strapless number, but without all the awkward tugging and tape involved. A belt is always a great accessory to jazz up a simple outfit and draw attention to your fab figure. Throw on some strappy high heeled sandals to make your legs look almost as long as Cameron’s, and voila, you’ve got an easy, but alluring and mature outfit to add to your wardrobe.
