Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Rachel Bilson is Foxy in Leather
[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 everyone's favorite not-so-reality star, Lauren Conrad) are spending $5,000 and more on an ensemble, you an spend way less...and save the rest for Margarita Mondays.]
I can’t gush about Rachel Bilson’s style enough (I’ve written about her twice before. She’s so dynamic and committed to being on-trend while still letting her own personality shine through. She never looks anything less than polished but never excessively, inaccessibly so. Her outfits are always straightforward and simple, but never dull or uninspired. Basically, I worship her and everything she chooses to be.
I truly don’t know how I made it through life before my love affair with blazers. They are seriously the perfect piece of clothing – chic, comfortable, classic, and so incredibly versatile. You can pair a blazer with nearly anything and it will look amazing. Rachel paired hers with a gorgeous beaded tank. Embellished tops are a great way to add eye-catching flair to any ensemble. I love the contrast of an uber-feminine and coquettish beaded tank with leather shorts, creating an interesting contrast and adding some edginess and sexiness.
Sky high pumps are the most fitting shoe for this look not only because they match the fierceness of the leather shorts, but they also elongate your legs, which is always a plus when you’re wearing shorts. A small black clutch is a great way to pull together the whole outfit. This is a flawless, trendy, sexy look that is more than fitting for summer nights painting the town red with the girlies.
