[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 style superstar, Rachel Bilson) 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 look. For cheap. Yes, we know – there is a spot for her in heaven.]
I adore Selena Gomez. Her face looks as if it were lifted from a porcelain doll. Her hair is so luminous and luxurious. Her music is perfect for those times when you’re dancing in front of the mirror in your PJs with your hairbrush (in contrast to those times when you’re dancing in front of the mirror in your highest stilettos and a bottle of Smirnoff). She is the personification of rainbows and unicorns and puppies and everything that is fluffy and G-rated in this world. I love it.
Selena’s style is just as unpretentious and down-to-earth as the rest of her image. She’s totally youthful, fresh, and laid back. She is that girl who swears she “isn’t even into fashion,” but she always looks current and hip, and you never see her wearing the same ensemble twice.
She is essentially every friend I’ve ever had and secretly resented totally admired.
Luckily, this easy-breezy style fits perfectly into the college style scene and, even better, is not at all difficult (or expensive) to emulate.
Boyfriend blazers have been in for the past few seasons, and this fall is no exception. This particular one is corduroy, which is so quintessentially fall, and can be a staple for years to come. Adding a black/white shirt adds a little bit of flair to an overall very neutral outfit. You can throw on any sort of solid scarf, but I love the idea of mixing prints in the same color family for a little extra visual interest. And don’t be afraid of pairing a black bag with brown boots. If Selena’s outfit teaches us anything it’s that it can totally work.
This is such a great look because it’s fashion-forward but still sticking with clothes you most likely already own. By mixing and matching colors that clash, but still fall under the realm of “neutral”, you can create an adorbz look that is so easy to customize and personalize.
