[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 are spending $5,000 on an ensemble (even for just a simple Saturday stroll), you don’t have to. All you have to do is click on the goods and – boom – you can buy the entire look. For cheap. Yes, we know – there is a spot for her in heaven.]
Quite honestly, I don’t really know who Ashley Greene is. I know she’s in Twilight, but seeing as how there are much hotter vampires out there, I’ve never seen the movies. I know she once sent naked photos to someone….and got caught. Aaaand, that’s about it.
However, this girl keeps popping up on red carpets, award shows and some of my favorite gossip sites, and she’s really pretty in that “I-just-became-semi-relevant-so-I-still-have-to-pay-for-my-clothes-and-I-still-shop-at-the-mall-but-at-least-I’ve-upgraded-to-Nordstrom” way. You know?
My point? Who she is doesn’t really matter to me as much as what she’s been wearing. And what she’s been wearing is totally slammin’. Ashley’s style is sometimes chic, sometimes fun, sometimes laid back and edgy, yet so easy to re-imagine and re-create on a college girl’s budget.
I don’t know you, Ashley, but I think I love you.
Ashley’s outfit is cute; I love bubble sleeves/exaggerated shoulders paired with a slimmer bottom. The detailing on the shirt stands out on its own so the outfit doesn’t need much else (especially when one of Hollywood’s hottest new stars is sporting it). But, for those of us who like a little extra bling to our looks, I went ahead and iced this outfit out.
When you’ve got sleeve/neck/shoulder detailing on a shirt, you definitely don’t want to add any more anything to your neckline. So with a shirt like this one from Forever 21, a chunky stack of bracelets or bangles is definitely the way to go. It’s just the perfect amount of sparkle to take a somewhat standard outfit to the next level. (And if you’re up for it, you could go for a rocker chic leather cuff instead to add a little edge to this sweet ensemble.)
See? Wasn’t that easy?
