Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Hats off to The Hills

[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.]
While I may be the only person on this site who is so not up to date on The Hills – I just feel like I lose 50 million brain cells everytime I watch that show – I have to admit I do like this look.
It’s great for class – casual, yet pulled together- and screams “I’m a regular person- but not that regular- I stand out. I should be on TV for doing absolutely NOTHING!” (And really – who doesn’t want to have a look that screams that?!)
The hat makes this look a little different, adorable, and covers up your dirty hair that you didn’t have time to wash after you hit snooze 6 times…

Cable Knit Beret

Audrina rocks this hat in white, but my pick would be yellow. That extra pop of color just makes this outfit that much cuter.

Black Denim Skinny Jeans

The zippers are cute for flats/pumps- but these jeans are also best for tucking into boots. Skinnies are an easy way to take a boring outfit and make it fabulous.


Buy this Motley Bangle set, or throw on an assortment of what you have at home. You can mix and match just about anything – chunky and fine, silver and gold, jeweled and plain…the possibilities are endless.


Cute, chic and totally cover up that mess of a face for your 8am class.

Sheer Tee (in oatmeal)

Please, I beg of you, do not wear a black bra underneath it. Unless your name is Carrie Bradshaw this look is just. not. cute. If your complexion is pasty like mine, then I would stay away from the oatmeal and do a brighter color instead. Either way, solid tees are the way to go to keep this look on the classy (instead of so trendy you will be out of style by lunch) look.

Cute. Cheap. Big.
