[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 fashion winner Whitney Port) are spending $5,000 and more on an ensemble, you an spend way less…and save the rest for Margarita Mondays.]
Kelly Osbourne’s career is a total mystery to me.
So, her rock star father gets an MTV reality show where she gets to be a bratty, gothy, embarrassing teenager in front of millions of people, falls into oblivion after the show is cancelled, stays there for a few years, loses weight, learns how to apply makeup, goes on Dancing with the Stars…and is suddenly a red carpet staple?
Um…what? I’m baffled.
I can’t knock the girl’s hustle, though. I mean, she has the Joan Rivers’ stamp of approval and I don’t, so all I can do is bow down to her greatness…and try to recreate her fresh, young, trendy, bold-without-being-tacky style for myself.
Mixing prints seems to be here to stay, and I love it. By not being afraid to mix unexpected patterns, you allow your creativity to run completely free, and you’re a lot less likely to get stuck in that, “I’ve worn every single outfit in my closet” rut. A white cropped jacket is the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe – it’s sturdy enough for those chilly spring breezes, but not too bulky or cumbersome.
Polka dots and florals are both very feminine prints, so combining them in one look isn’t too outlandish, and of course, separately, you can incorporate a polka dotted top and a floral skirt into a billion other spring looks. A pair of peep toe pumps add a flirty touch (and of course, allow you to show off your adorable pedicure).
Kelly’s look is so breezy, chic, and feminine, and so perfect for spring…if spring would ever get here.
