[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 comfy, everyday outfits!) 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.]
I’m convinced Blake Lively is one of those women who was genetically engineered to make 90 percent of the female population feel woefully inferior in one way or another. Her hair, her figure, her relationship with Anna Wintour, her relationship with Penn Badgley, her thriving acting career, her work wardrobe, her beautiful personal style… there’s something for everyone to hate on.
And the worst part is, she has the audacity to seem really sweet and fun, so you can’t even really hate her. In short, she is perfect.
And so is this outfit.
This outfit is all about the details. How else could Blake mix a variety of neutrals to construct a stylish, but super low key ensemble (and not look like a big, gray storm cloud)? It’s so simple yet so chic….and so easy to recreate for a college girl on a budget.
Combining an oversized, drapey cardigan with some skinny jeans makes this outfit casual without being sloppy. And all the fun details – from the slight sheen on the tunic to the lace up booties that match the sweater to the studded bag – make this more than just your typical, everyday casual look.
Blake’s ensemble is comfy, cute and cozy; perfect for a crisp fall day or a chilly winter night.
